    Is it wrong for a woman to have a toy boy, whilst men are complemented on having a younger partner.

    I have a toy boy partner of 14 years, and although we are poles apart in many ways, we rub along nicely most of the time. I don't believe age matters in a relationship if you are both happy. What do you think?

    I also agree that age doesn't matter, it's much more a matter of maturity and life stage. The important thing, I think, is that you can have mutual respect, love, and happiness. Which partner is younger doesn't matter either, I think it's just more common to see older men with younger women as opposed to vice versa because the average male takes a LONG time to mature tongue. I'm working on getting a few more hubs up about age gap relationships, though at the moment most do deal with the younger female/older male just because that's my own experience (my husband is 27 years older than me). People get way too stuck on things that, when it comes down to it, really don't matter -- it's a person's experiences and personality that determine maturity levels, not how many years since they were born.

    I do not believe age matters.  It the couple gets along and enjoys each other, what possible difference could age make?  I suppose there is always someone who is going to comment or gossip--but who cares what others think as long as the two of you "rub long nicely" as you put it, and take care of each other.

    Aslong as you're happy it shouldn't matter. If people look at you funny or talk behind your back just let them. Go against the grain and stand up for what you believe. Love is eternal. This generations rules and social exceptances only belong to this generation!

    happiness must not hinder the future of some one. if under age individuals experience the taste of sex, they can not view their other activities. so take care and enjoy.

    Well, thebluestar when you ask the question like that I think it's wrong to have a man or woman as a toy.  Do I think it's wrong for older women to date or be in relationships with younger men, absolutely not.  I think age is just a number and has nothing to do with the relationship, love, communication, bond that two people share between each other.  I think in general people focus on the minimal aspects (ie. age, looks, type of car, etc.) to define what we want in relationships rather than focusing on who the person is, do they make me laugh?, do we really understand each other?, can I see myself with you 5, 10, even 30 years down the line?

    I don't think it is wrong for a woman to have a younger partner. It's true that in this male dominated society men are complimented for having a younger partner while woman are blamed. If you are looking for approval from the Society for everything you do, then you would be left to die unhappy.  Age should not be a criteria in a relationship as long as you both are happy and comfortable with each other. Rather than what the society think, it is important how you feel about yourself.
