Depends. If you are a 58 yr old woman who "needs" sexual satisfaction from a man, the younger the man the better. If "Sex" is unimportant but love and companionship is, why should age be considered? Qwark :
I am always impressed with the intriguing and interesting questions people ask on hub pages, and the responses. I think this depends on number of factors. They are certainly both seasoned individuals, and know much about life and have undoubtedly loved before. If they both are healthy and have their wits about them, then it is up to them. If they truly love each other and are happy, so be it. No one else can judge for them.
Does age matter? I think it depends upon how mature in mind both people are.
I think it would be, maybe a give and take kind of thing. sometimes it will matter other times not so much, so if they are both mature enough to realise that, then probably no problems. Otherwise problems occur.
Then hold on to him tight and enjoy ever second with him. Live life to its fullest potential and don't look back.
Nobody is able to determine how much time one has on this earth so what is important is what you do with the time you do have. Thus, either bask in the wonderful embrace of love and joy or look back and dream of the beautiful times you could have had.
Age makes no difference I am 48 and my partner is 61 we have had many wonderful times and continue to enjoy each and every minute we are privileged enough to spend together.
"This man is healthy and viberant. He may only have ten years to live but he has a heart of gold and is the most caring and loving person I've ever met." 'ten years to live', I was referring to myself. Great. So what's the problem? Seems to me true love transcends the body.
so they say...'age is just a number' so live your life, if you have found happiness......This is what the record breaker said in India....who is over 70 years old and had a baby by his over 50 year old wife and is going for a second child at this age.
Love should have no boundries-If it is really love it will just happen-there is a difference between love and infatuation-Sometimes, I think we are so afraid of what other people think-that we avoid things or prevent things.I think what matters most is how you feel about it yourself and how the other person feels about it.If you are 58 and he is 79 what does it really matter-spending time worring if others will approve your decision is kind of silly--and life is to short to let someone else's opinion guide your relationship.I am 46 and my husband is 56-we have been together for 22 years married for 17 years- Alot of people use to say it would never work for many reasons-but the truth is if you want it to work it will-Just be happy.Some people are just compatible. There is nothing wrong with spending time with someone who makes you happy.
I do agree that you should never date your childrens friends or others the same age as your children-but again that is just my opinion- what I was taught-common sense
Age doesn't necessarily matter; however, intellectual compatibility, maturity, and emotional compatibility along with the ability to trust and communicate with one another does, and are the foundations to a long-lasting and healthy relationship.
Unfortunately, some of those qualities, such as intellectual compatibility and maturity, correlate with age differences; however, if the two parties are able to work on a relationship, age doesn't really make a difference.
I've been going out with my partner for 2 years now and he is 7 years my junior. It seems to bother other people more than it bothers us and mostly my friends rather than his. Every week a comment is made about him being younger but I ignore it - we are happy and it doesn't bother us so I tend to ask the question why does it bother others?
So if older men can date and marry younger girls why is it that it is now okay for older women and younger guys to date/marry?Is it just a quick flame? Or a interesting conquest? What is in it for the younger guy...
We've been together for over 5 years, and I thought he was the one. We've always talked about our future, until the past year when I started realising that maybe that wasn't going to happen? Why is it that some...
