What should be the ideal age difference between husband and wife?
Is it a good practice to have an age difference between husband and wife? If so what should be the ideal difference?
between 4 to 8 years of difference because usually a women mentality is about 4 year difference than a men.
as long as two people love each other..there are no boundaries... age doesn't matter.....but LOVE does all... cheers
I would say, if its love marriage, then age would never matter. However, if in a country like India(i belong there), 2 years of age difference is good for all. Well everyone knows that girls mature a little faster than boys. And arrange marriage is what it is called.
I just turned 46 , my husband is 64 in August , been married about 15 months both for 2 nd time & if the caravans a rockin don;t come knockin !!
We are having an amazing time , love each other & are traveling Australia . Both love the same things !!
Where there is love, there should be no consideration of age difference but ideally it can be 1 or 2 years as they understand each other well.
My mother always told me to marry a men older than me, and I did it, he's 10 months older. But my mother meant 7 years older or so. At first she thought he was too young and immature, but now she is happy with my choice.
My father was much(much!) older than my mother, I know another couple married for years where the woman is older than her husband. Both marriages were and are successful.
I really believe that when there is true love, age doesn't matter .
I don't think there is an ideal difference. My husband and I are 2 years a part, my daughter married a man 10 years older, my other daughter married a man a year younger. I know married people of all manner of spans between them--I think it has more to do with the individuals involved.
2 or 3, for 3 ages have a generation gap, I just hear it from others.
I thought tha me and my husband had the perfect age gap, 5 years but still I am more mature than him.
Well, unless they were born on the same day and year, there is going to be an age difference.
Personally, I do not think age difference matters too much, especially when the teen years and 20's have been left behind. There can be a huge difference between an 18 and 28 year-old, but the age difference between a 35 and 45 year-old is virtually non-existent. A lot of it has to do with education, experience, emotional, psychological and spiritual maturity, things that young people have not yet acquired (in general).
I do think a young woman marrying a much older man...say 20 years or so, will, more than likely be widowed quite young. Women typically live 5 years longer than men, but when you calculate the 20 year age disparity - she would probably be widowed around the age of 50, statistically speaking, that is if he died at the age of 75. This is still young enough for her to remarry, but it could be difficult to care for someone who is suffering from the onset of advanced years and the illnesses that often harass senior citizens.
Age difference does not have any say in a happy marriage, but if there is a vast difference of ,say twenty years, it would be a mix up of tastes and spell unhappiness in marriage. My personal opinion is three to four years would be ideal as couples can interact more as friends.

Do you think age difference matters in a relationship?

Does a big age difference doom a relationship when the woman is older?Some people refers to younger men in such relationships as "toyboy lovers". Is it degrading or is it just exact? Is the age difference an obstacle in a relationship when the wife's age gap from her husband is great?

I am prepared to get beaten up for this, but the reason I'm here is because I have no one I can confide in and I'm feeling anxious, depressed and bitter. My life was turned upside down two years ago and while I have dealt with all the rotten things thrown at me, one night I decided to escape...
