To the couple, age gaps dont mean anything if they love each other.Age gaps only mean something to parents because parents have invented a fantasy in their heads that AGE is what makes a male a danger.they were born in another society, but you are a new generation, you set the rules and only you decide what your life will be.But the other proplem is money, when relationship is kept only on them, then the age difference really takes place.
There are in fact many upsides to age differences in relationships that can have an extremely positive impact. The younger partner has the potential to extract energy and spark from the older partner. Equally as beneficial, an older lover can provide emotional stability and offer guidance with life choices. However social situations with family and friends can be challenging. Despite these potential problem areas, many relationships with an age gap are highly successful. The key is honesty and communication. Being open and truthful from the start about what you are looking for in a relationship, and even life, is the best way to ensure you are able to achieve this. If both partners are in agreement, then there is no issue. Like with any relationship, if you are happy, have a strong bond and are committed to making it work, then together you can cope with any complication life throws in your direction.
I think there is no such notion as age in love. If you love someone that you should fight for that person and his heart. Of course I'm not talking about pedophilia, don't take me wrong. But who cares how old is your partner, your love?Society may judge you or tell you that it's wrong, but spit on their opinion!They should watch themselves. And you should be happy and your happiness in your hands. So fight for your love, don't listen to other people, only you know, what is better for you!And no one else.And if there was chance to be with someone you love you shouldn't waste it because of stereotypes or other things.
Well, guys i suggest that age is not that an attribute of the person's intelligence , because for example i have a friend who is 5 years older than me and we have a lot of things to communicate and you know what , actually i tend to communicate to people who are quite older than me, because no interesting topics to talk about and i like not to do that as they are not at my level.
I think there is nothing special in fact that you have age difference in your couple. I think the most important is not the age of the person but his character and inner world. For some the appearance is also of great importance. But I don’t think that age is so important factor that define if you will be with this person or not. I was with people who are older than me and with those who are younger than me. If the age difference is the key factor for you in choosing the right person you will not succeed. You can’t find the man who will completely satisfy you. Everything can be ideal but he can be too young or too old.
The research data may be surprising, but it makes sense. When dating, we are more open to trying out new things, thus a wider gap we list as acceptable. But relationships are more than just movies and dinners, and moonlight walks on the beach. One of my most memorable experiences was dating a guy 20 years older when I was 21 ;) He was amazing and so much more sophisticated than boys in my university group. Did it last? Of course not! I never even felt it was for real. It was what it was, an experience. We had very little to talk about or discuss, and never been very close. His friends and mine were too far apart. There was really nothing connecting us except our interest in each other.

I am totaly agree with you . Its soo interesting to communicate with people who are quite older than you. Other research suggests that the ideal gap in relationships is 4.4 years, and divorced people tend to have a larger disparity in subsequent marriages. In a way, this is to be expected. Young people usually pair up within their age group, as at that point in life their circle of communication is limited to people of about the same maturity. Divorced people, obviously, are older. By then our circles of acquaintances grow to be more spread through generations, and personal values and life style become more important than how old the two partners are. Still, real-life couples rarely have a generation-long discrepancy between them.
Many pairs continue a relationship that started back in high school, thus their difference will be smaller. It became more acceptable for
both to experiment with dating younger people. However, these alliances very seldom produce a committed partnership, and even more rarely survive past 10 years. B) In couples where the age gap approaches generational, the older partner is under a constant and significant stress. While it may be very exciting at first, the long-term prospects of such relationships are directly affected by how self-worthy the mature spouse feels.
Being afraid that your younger half may leave is likely to aid in deterioration of your marriage.
Let’s be honest. Age difference in couples affects their long-term prospects. Anything over 15 years is too large a gap. If you want to play, fine, but don’t lie to yourself. There are beautiful, intelligent, caring individuals who will make great partners, and with whom you can be happy over the long haul. Give yourself a chance.
I'm almost 27 and my Partner is 40 so its nearly 14 years between us :) . I certainly hope this isn't going to be viewed unfavourably!! !
Anyway we've been living together for nearly 4 years and married for 2 with a baby on the way so I don't believe our relationship is in question. They really can't discrimintate but I guess if you already have some markers that make your relationship seem un-genuine then an age difference might matter. The simple fact is that love has no age and no barriers and unfortunately it is perhaps the minority of people who abuse the system, with sham marriages, who again spoil it for the rest.
