This topic has come up a lot with many people I talk with (both male and female):

How old apart does the male have to be from the female to be an acceptable marriage?

The discussion with my friends seem to be 50/50, that is, half feel that it doesn't matter whether the man is older than the women in the marriage or vice-versa, while other feel the opposite. They feel that in order for the marriage to not 'feel' right, the man has to be older than the women by at least 2-3 years.

For me this really doesn't bother me whether my future wife is older or I am. This girl that I've been talking to lately is only a week older than me (March 5 her, March 13 me) and some of my friends think I should ask her out, and others tell me to go find someone a little younger. Now I am not one to listen to my friends on this one and will be asking her out eventually smile.gif

Anyways, what's everyone's opinion on this subject? I know this isn't something that no one hasn't discussed or thought about at least once in their lifetimes.

So, let the non-flame debate proceed!

My peenor knows what's too old or too young, other than that I'm fine with everything.


Once again a useless topic. How about "Does spaghetti taste good or bad?" or "Is My Bloody Valentine good music?`" or "What is the best color for a ferrari?"

What has age to do with marriage? If you both love each other then it will be fine.

You'd be surprised on how much age actually does play a role in marriage. Some people will argue that the man has to be older and others will argue it doesn't matter. Some believe that a functional relationship will be strong as long as this rule is followed (the man is older in the relationship).

Anyways, I was putting this out there to get more opinions.

Should it really matter what age you are? As long as it's legal and you both love each other, who cares?

Up until adulthood (18-21+), ages should be around the same (for legal reasons).

After that, it's all opinion. When you reach maturity and can make your own decisions rationally, the age difference doesn't matter.

But can't someone date someone younger than them even at 18 if no sexual intercorse has taken?

I mean I understand that some people would be apposed to seeing a 16-17 year old girl with a 20+ year old man, but as long as no sexual interactions occurred during her becoming 18, shouldn't that as well not really matter in a relationship?

It would be considered grooming, in the eyes of the law they would need to be an adult to fully consent.

In the UK, she would be legal. So, in that case, depends on laws.

It doesn't really matter if the relationship is working out and they respect each other.
