If you are already in love with an older man this is not to put you off as I am happily married to a lovely man 19 years older than me .

We have both been married before & I have 3 daughters & he has 3 sons like The Brady Bunch ! Ecxept all of our children have left home !

We have a lot in common so age diference doesn't matter to us like it might for an 18- 20 year old wanting to have children .

Questions to ask & what to expect from others

Are we on the same wave lengh as far as having children ?

Where we will live ?

Do we enjoy the same activities ?

Am I a party animal while he enjoys staying in playing card games ?

Disadvantages of Marrying An Older Man

There can be disadvantages to marrying an older man.

You might be used to going out with boys that let you walk all over them/ get your own way all the time while an older man is usually used to being the head of the house and won't put up with temper tantrums and so on.

Usually there is a lot of baggage that comes along with an older guy such as

An ex wife who can be out to cause problems

Children from a previous marriage

Support for the ex family leaving him broke.

Stress from a bad marriage that can take a long time to disapear.

Diferences in taste of music/clothes/ activities/ and more that comes along as time goes by.

Be Happy !

Learn to not worry about what everyone else thinks in life . If the 2 of you have everything you need in common & truly love each other then be happy together.

Remember that your children - parents - well meaning friends have their life - Don't give up on true love for them if he has the right qualities to be your partner in life.
