    Does age really matter when it comes to truely loving someone?

    My husband and I have been married for 4 years now, together for 8 total. He is nearly 14 years younger than I am. The difference in our age does not , seem to bother him. However, it does me at times. Should I allow this gorgeous, sexy, beautiful man to live with his older wife? Am I depriving him of something from a marriage?

    If he loves you, then I don't know why that would bother you.

    In the long run age is really just another number. Yes, when you're 14 it's scandalous to date someone five years older than you, but the older you get, the less the age difference matters.

    its not a question of age,... its a question of maturity,... thats why we have a problem with a fourteen year old dating a 28 year old,... the average maturity level of those different ages would be wildly different,... but i've know 14 year olds that far out classed 50 year olds in the realm of maturity.

    this does NOT mean that i'm advocating child brides,... or the maridge of adolecents,... it means that age is between the ears,... not on the calculator.

    It's not about the age, I agree with the comment on maturity. I know some men who are several years younger than I am who are mature and capable of being in a more deeper relationship than those who are older than me or my age. He loves you for you. Just overlook those thoughts, and embrace what you have!

    lol ! I just answered a question about the opposite in the forum ! I am 46 and my husband is 64 , some think I am after a father figure .We have amazing times together .
    Forget age - that is just a number , enjoy what you have & be happy together ! If you & him have a great love life & enjoy being together then there is no problem .

    It is not your place to decide what is best for him or to "allow" him to live with you.  He is there because he wants to be--enjoy what you have, love, live and be together. He's a grown man, if he wanted to go, he would have gone.  He likely looks at you as the sexiest woman on earth--bask in it and be thankful for each day.

    My parents have thirty-four years between them. My mother was 18 when she met my dad, who was already 52 at that time. So imagine that.

    And it's not like my dad is one of those rich guys who go for young girls and my mom wasn't a pretty young girl looking for a rich husband. My mom was really naive, my dad just loved her, and 21 years later they still love each other dearly. My dad is turning 72 this year, and my mom is turning 40 next june, they've raised two clever, educated kids (not trying to brag here!), even though my grandma didn't approve of their marriage at the start.

    Age isnt what matters, it's all about whats in your heart and his. If you love each other then age shouldnt make a difference. You arent depriving anyone from him being married because he made the choice to be married to you. He loves you for who you are, not your age.

    Not at all. Love is love. Unbiased, timeless, and colorblind. Age is just another obsolete factor in our lives. If there is true, genuine love, then nothing else matters.
