Do you think couples should stay together if they are 20 years apart?

    Where do you draw the line in relationships. Is it healthy to stay together when you are so far apart in age?

      Of course it is.  I cannot imagine how anyone could make a logical argument against it.

      I seem to recall a similar thread like this some time ago - why do you think there is an issue, what has happened to you to make you think there is a problem ?

        hmm, well just a mystery how many relationships really succeed, and what society sees as acceptable, or not acceptable. Just learning. I don't think I posted this thread before. But maybe I did, and forgot! lol I don't know! lol

      It depends on the couple.  For some, twenty years might be too big of an age gap to overcome.  Whereas others, it might be just right because the younger of the two might be too mature for their age, and probably feel more drawn to more older and civilized people.  Plus, you know what they say about experience....wink  lol tongue

      It depends upon the understanding and their IQ levels. sometimes the age really does not mater if you find happiness in each other's company.  smile

    I know someone who has got married to his partner of many years.  They are a gay couple, and there is 30 years difference in age between them, yet they are one of the happiest couples I know of.

    If the relationship adds value to their life, then I don't see any problem with it. wink

    Its depend if the two party are mature enough to accept the age in difference.  Another thing is how long has the youngest one been out in the world? These are the question the older one has to ask self and the sufficent other. Because if she/he haven't been out there and tasted the fruit. And she/he is just out there and blind that when you need to evaulate the situation.
