Let's see, Jennifer Aniston is in her 40's and I'm in my 20's. Yes.
No. Women in my family outlive men anyway by over 20 years so that would be like asking to live without that special person for 40 years - at least! No thank you. I'd rather grow old together, not watch the one I love die & then soldier on for nearly 1/2 a century without them.
I know you can't predict when it's anyone's "time", I'm saying, if there are no "accidents" and we both live a standard life.
I should be married to someone 10 years younger... lol
Heck no, I'm 61 - that would put them very close to the grave! When I was a young woman it would not have been such a big deal.
No. I have a rule. I don't date or get into a relationship with anyone who I could be their kid.
Not likely. I always say that as long as the difference in age between me and the man i choose to marry is less than that between him and my mom then i guess it is okay.That would make the maximum age difference for me as 13 years and not a day more.
I'm already married - my husband is a few months older than me. I think "to each his own" though. If you find love with someone who is 20 years older than you, then more power to you.
It depends on age. At age 25, it's reasonable. I know a man 76 with teenagers. He gets Social Security for them. He was in his 60s and married a 40 yr old. For him, it now has financial advantages. I hope he lived to be 90 for sake of family.
If she has a lot of money and her health is not so good, yes I do.
For me , honestly , i will if she rich , to understand me and she allow to support my parent , I also can promise to divorce anymore and stay with her forever as she can live .
If you find someone you deeply care for, then age should not stop you. Someone answered "it depends on what age you are now"; No it doesn't, 20 years is 20 years, if you're young now, you'll be older one day. Anyway, people seem to be forgetting that one's age is NO guarantee for how long you will live, or whether you will live longer than the other person. You could marry someone your same age and they still die decades before you! You could marry someone 20 years your senior and YOU die first! We don't like to think about it but old age is not the only cause of death.
If you love someone and are willing to respect the differences that come with difference in age, than live your life together joyfully while you can. Marrying someone your own age is no guarantee of a long and happy life together.
20 years is not just 20 years. A 14 year old girl with a 24 year old man is a bid no-no, simply because defilement is a valid charge at this time.10 years down the line, this particular person at 24 years old can marry the now 34 year old guy.
It's not a problem as long as you don't mind changing their diaper years down the road, and I'm not trying to be funny here. Keep on hubbing
not likely.. or 20yrs younger.. that would be too much like your mother/ father or a child.. gross!
Well duh! Of course. I'm 58. If I marry a woman 78, she kicks it, and leaves her assets to me, I'm still young enough, and now wealthy enough to attract a woman 20 years younger than me. Pretty clever, hey? Are there any men out there in there 70s? Listen up! Go for Betty White!!!!!!
If I wasn't already married, then yes; however, I am older. I don't think a 18 year old should marry someone that much older. I guess it would depend on the ages.
jpcmc....A much discussed topic of conversation, but an interesting one. I would have been comfortable 20 years ago to marry a man that much older than I. I think it has much to do with what particular age you are at the time the opportunity presents itself.....When both individuals are between 40 and 60, I see no serious concerns with marriage to one another in these decades of life.
One the other hand, a woman in her 20's or 30's, probably wouldn't be making a realistic decision to marry a man in his 40's or 50's. I suspect you follow my reasoning.
I am married so I needn't wonder about this....but hypothetically, at my age now...I wouldn't even think of marrying someone 20 years older than I am.......Simply because I do not have a license in Geriatric nursing............lol

If you fell in love with someone 20 years elder than you, would you marry them?

Would you allow your child to date someone 10 years older than her/him?I have a friend who has a 16 year old daughter who is currently dating 26 year old guy. If you're the parent, would you allow this?

Would you rather date someone ten years older or ten years younger?Obviously your own age is going to affect your answers, especially if you're in your twenties (haha).

I was born and raised in one area and then after getting married have lived most of my life far away from my siblings. It has been hard to keep the relationship going, although it really was never that close to begin with - how about yours?
