Dating a man 12 years older than me
I base this opinion of the age of 13 being the average age for puburty in women and in men, a 13 year old can technically get pregnant or get someone pregnant, therefore i feel 12 years older or younger is the cap on an age difference for me. That means hes more mature but not old enough to have fathered a child at the same time i was born. I know two couples with age differences of 17 and 20 years. If they are that age or older, possibilities exist.
Even still, his oldest child is 18 and even she doesnt think it appropriate her father date me. So, if I'm...60, and ...he's 38, things might work. If two people are committed to each other that is the most crucial thing.
I expand on those in the article, Should You Marry This Person?
You may more likely find a wife you'll be contented with long-term if you don't limit your options to people of your age and younger.
In my marriage my ex way way more emotionally mature than I was (she was also 8 years older) In subsequent relationships I was the more mature, now I'm with someone of similar emotional maturity and it is plain sailing, no drams, no egos, no tension.
There is always going to be someone who does not approve of you.I knew in my heart that marrying my husband was a good fit.I see a lot of people in life doing what they "should" do and not honoring their true selves.It sucks when a woman is in her mid-late 40s and you are all ready to go and she has no interest.
I don't believe age is very important at all, I think what determines a great relationship is that both partners are of similar emotional maturity.A 30-something is more likely to have that maturity than is a 20-something. As mentioned, older people have had more time to advance in their career.
