If you fell in love with someone 20 years elder than you, would you marry them?
Yes , he is 19 years older , we have been married about 16 months & have a lot in common, traveling Aussie together . I wouldnt reccomend an 18 yr old doing it but as you get older the gap decreases AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THINGS IN COMMON . I am 46 he is 64 soon. Both been married before.
5 years later and we are in Spain after free camping around Europe and the UK. Amtrak across America, An Alaskan cruise etc! We have been married almost 7 years now and still very happy together! I am 51 now and Nev is almost 69. Amazing times!
Of course I will! Love is blind and knows no boundaries.
I say the heart wants what the heart wants. A true connection between two people is rare enough without giving it restrictions like age.
yes. love is love. not a number or a statistic. we can fall in love with any race, age, ethnicticity, etc.
It depends on where both of you are on a maturity level, as well as what you both want during and up to twenty years in the future. I agree that as you get older, the age gap closes in a bit. However both people will have to be willing to anticipate to some degree what factors in life will/would come into play in the future that may not be an issue at present. Getting along and having common interests is good for a relationship, but long term goals and visions have to be in accordance.
Love is love, if you love them enough then you just might. Marriage nowadays is really a formality anyway I find, you can love someone and live with them and such without having actually gotten married. For me personally marriage wouldn't be that much a thing regardless of age, but if it were to come to that I would.
no. I won't. I once fell inlove w/ a man 13 years older than me and I had to let him go. I just can't bear the thought of living after he dies. I know it sounds negative but that is the reality.
So if they loved me back then I guess I would just hang out with them. But 20 years is a big difference in age which does not really matter unless a teenager loves 35 year old! But to answer your question, yes I would marry them!
When people fall in love they don't care about the age. They love the person. So yeah i will marry.
I would have to say that there are two sides to this answer. I think that love knows no age, but at the same time you have to consider that there is a strong chance that you may out live this person by 20 years. When you are in your prime, they will be an old person. How will that effect you? That question you need to answer before you make a decision. My husbands mother married a man 21 years younger than her. She is 81 and he is 60... he left her for a younger woman a few years ago and left her elderly and alone. So I have mixed feelings on this.
It's very easy to find out....if you love him/her then of-course you should. Age doesn't really matter
If u r in prepared to live with someone 20 year older then go for that...as for me if i fell in love i would rather make a good friendship with them than getting tied up..
And why is getting married apparently the last option for loving couples? Does love go away if couples do not get married?
Its a very choice whether you want to get married or not....age has got nothing to do with it.
I'm pretty sure I wouldn't do it. I would rather find someone closer to my own age who gives me the best chance for a long relationship with them. I don't believe I would ever fall in love with someone 20 years older than me anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
My boyfriend is 14 years older than me and i don't mind if i do marry him because we have the same wavelength in absolutely anything. Age is just a number, when you find someone you have in deep connection with,it doesn't matter. People die any age, young or old, its how we live our lives like we wanted it, enjoy love!
Yes I would marry someone who is 20 years my senior. Sometimes love hits you in strange ways. I have been in relationshipw with older woman and they have taught me alot about people and life. Age really is just a number but also indicates life experiences. These life experiences can be very beneficial in a marriage and can help keep a couple together. They would still have to have their sexy on!
Love conquers all as what they've said. If you really love the person, marry him/her. You don't need to listen what other people have to say, you just need to feel what your heart says.
My sweetheart is 10 years younger and I would marry him if he'd ask me. I'm that kind of girl who still believes in marriage:-)
If he would be 20 years older I don't even think I'll last a month since he would be 58 then! Not my thing at all. Tough chance if I would fall in love with someone that much older, depending ofcourse how rich he would be.(yeah that's a joke ofcourse)
If I loved someone older than myself or younger than myself the age difference would not matter ....
I think it depends on the age you are when you find this person. For example, I think it would be inappropriate for a 20 year old to marry a 40 year old, but a 40 year old and a 60 yr old seems a lot different. Personally I want someone that I can grow with, and experience big life moments with like buying a first house, marriage, kids, whereas an older person has already been through all of that.
Yes. I don't think age matters when it comes to consenting adults who actually have feelings for each other.
Love knows no boundary, no limitations. In the name of love everything is possible and equal. Age doesn't. If I truly love the person, I will marry him regardless of his age. That's for sure.
I would defnitely go ahead and marry him. I would have obviously fallen in love with him after knowing his age, and once you are in love, nothing else matters.
Of course i would, Age does not matter. Its simply a number! x
ofcourse yes !!!if its a sincere relationship thn why not.once you are in love, nothing else matters
I believe love is blind and someone may think it can happen.
But for me, i will not. No reason, just because I am realistic i cannot imagine how lonely i will be in the future. I cannot stand my lover left earlier before me.
Perhaps the lust of the night would take over.. but marry? No.
Love can happen at any stage of life to any one but at stage if you are already married you have some limitations so you cannot marry but love is a free bird the age factor does not matter neither the marriage factor
Yes I will. Love is unconditional and no boundaries. Age doesn't matter too. If you love each other I believe everything will go smoothly.
Sure. If that's what we both want. The only problem is neither of my parents would be too happy about my dating someone older than they are.
YES! of couse I would! I believe age is a number... as long as both parties are consulting adults of course.
What? i thought 10 is old?
i have actually fallen in love with someone 7 years older than me...
and its complicated!
If i should have any reason to fall in love with any woman who is older than me, i will also have the same reason to marry her if she believe in me.
Probably not.... Seems like a significant gap in age.
I mean, its not unheard of. Nowadays happiness is hard to find so if you truly thought that you found it in that special someone else, then go for it.
People will look at you strangely and you just have to be open and willing to deal face the constant attention that may come with it wherever you go.
You simply have to ask yourself, do others dictate what makes you happy or do YOU dictate what makes you happy.
Outside of someone under the age of 19 whether boy or girl, i never understood why there was so much of a stigma attached to age differences. I thought being an adult and making decisions for yourself would not be looked at differently by society but thats not true at all.
Every day someone else decides what we "should" be doing or how we "should" do it or when we can do it or why we must do it.
I personally probably wouldnt be attracted to someone older than myself by 20 years, but i don't think there would be anything wrong with it if i was.
Absolutely not ... that person would be old enough to be my parent. I don't think it would be love. I think it would be more of an infactuation. I would get my head examined.
yes you need to get your head examined don,t judge if they love each other GOD will honor no matter what GOD is LOVE
Hehehe...my husband is four years older than my parents. Three kids and five years later, it sure seems to be holding strong better than any infatuation I've ever known. To each their own .
I can't say that I can always predict the future or know the actions I will or will not make. With that statement presented, at least as of this current moment - only if it was Marisa Tomei.
Love is eternal. You can be with your loved ones forever and that is a lot longer than a measly 20 years. However, I believe that a truly important part of marriage is to have a family - as long as the age difference still allows for that, I say it is 100% okay! By the way, my hubby is 11 years older than me and we welcomed our first little baby into the world 3 months ago.
At this point in life, with many life lessons behind me.........
I could " love" someone without marriage ( lifetime committment)..........I would now like to rid myself of committment and promises.
Age has NOTHING to do with it...........wisdom and self reliance, self confidence does.
At 20.............who remembers such things?
I am not sure although I was almost married to a guy who was 9years younger than I was, but then again why put limits on you life? Love overcomes all things and age is one of them
Yes my wife did and married me 31 years ago .It has worked out fine . No regrets .
I think that love has no age limit, while I think there would be some obstacles to overcome, love, is after all, love and age should not be a restriction.
love has no age it just happens so why don't we marry someone who we love.
Yes, I would. My husband is actually twelve years older than me but I still would have married him had he been twenty years older than me. Age is a number that a lot of people put too much emphasis on. I know that he more than likely will die before me. But I choose to treasure my marriage to him and our time together as a couple rather than focus on when I will be a widow. He loves me like I have never been loved before by any other man. I love him more than anyone I have ever loved. I know that we were made to be the other's spouse. For us, the age difference is not a problem.
NOT LIKELY... I WOULDN'T EVEN DO IT FOR MONEY. I WANT THE LOVE IN THE RELATIONSHIP.
Well someone 20 years younger than me fell in love with me and we got married - that was over 5 years ago
I think it depends on the individual. If it feels right, it's an individual preference. However, at some point the energy levels will shift... One may still be in party mode and the other in early to bed mode. This may create friction in the relationship which one should be aware and not surprised as the years pass.

Marry the one you love or the one who loves you?Would you rather marry the person you love but does not love you as much OR marry someone you don't love but is head over heels on you?
by Brian7 years ago
I'm just curious if anyone has ever fallen head over heels in love with someone after only knowing them for a short time. I was camping at a gay campground over the past week, and I met a very handsome man, who I felt...
