Age Difference in Relationship

Hi,


I am 28-years old and my girlfriend is 32. Is 4 years between us a very big difference and what could go wrong between us? In many societies, getting married with a bit older women is uncommon, so I get lots of negative comments from friends. Most people say it is not advisable because women get older fast. Moreover, if I marry her, she has fewer years to give birth and it is not medically advisable to have kids after 35 years which means I have only 3 years to have kids. Some critics also say sex is an important factor in a relationship, so she will go through menopause between 45-55 whereas I'll be still young and ready for sex.

Please advise me on this, I can't think of anything else but the age difference. All the other things I see in her are perfect.

Thanks,

Peter

Pure Intentions

I am eighteen years old and have been in a relationship with a man 22 1/2 years older than me for two years this November. We knew each other for one year before we were officially together. Loving each other, I think has become something separate from sex. Sex of course is a way to be together, but it has been so misconstrued. My Nicholas has been celibate for the last sixteen years and I my entire life. We have seen each other naked many times. We lay together and I like to rub lotion on his body but have not had sex yet. He doesn't want my family to think he is a disgusting old man. It just hasn't been conquered yet. Race, gender. Age is Next.

Wake Up!

I totally agree with Peter! And dude...do you actually love her? Because all you can think of is...your friends..and society..and sex! I have serious doubts as to what you actually want from life...do you ACTUALLY want her...or sex..and kids...and other people's opinion...and all that!!!

If you really love her and want to stay with her you'll not listen to what people say.....in these days, it's hard to find a partner who can understand you and love you...so please stay with her because I am sure that if you dumped her, you'll lose a piece from your heart forever!

Peter,

Please please PLEASE stop listening to your friends, and follow your heart! You think that 4 years is a big age gap, try 18 - that's the age gap between my partner & I. We are getting married in 2010 and couldn't be happier. As for kids, do you not watch the news??? Woman as old as 80 are having babies now! Yes, there are higher risks, but there are risks to getting up in the morning these days!

Also, it is a proven fact that a woman doesn't reach her sexual peak till mid 30's early 40's so you have loads of fun to come!
