Yes. I am 19 years younger than my husband - and I believe that we share real love for each other. We started as business acquaintances, and then developed a friendship. That friendship deepened, when I was diagnosed with cancer, and my husband (who was still a friend) reached out to me - with support, with revealing a private medical diagnosis that significantly influenced his own life - and with a caring concern. At this point in our lives, we are still the best of friends - although we often have very different viewpoints. Some of those differences are influenced by our age -- but we both respect each other's viewpoints, and we have learned a great deal from each other. The age thing still bothers him at times - but I don't think about it (except to the extent that it bothers him). We are two people, who are friends, lovers, and in a great marriage. The age difference is essentially irrelevant in our situation. And, with most people, I think - and I hope - that true love is a special bond which should be blind to age.
