Age Gap with your OH

Oct 6th, 2006, 18:39 PM   #1
 
hey girlies,
was just wondering if anyone else had a large age gap between you and your OH? And if that has ever caused any problems for your relationship or with family or friends?
There is 12 years between me and my OH (im 21, he's 33), but its never been a problem for us, other than the fact that our kids will have a younger mummy and an older daddy so they get the best of both worlds!

There is 16yrs between me and my OH. We've never had any problems either. My family love him and I get on well with his.

He got the usual lecture about leading me on etc from his mum when we first got together but 4 yrs later we're still going strong!!

He is a brilliant Dad to Phoebe aswell so I couldn't ask for more.

I'm so lucky to have him

There's 4 years between me and Chris. Not a huge age gap but still a gap! Not had any problems we've been together since I was 17. I'm the older one mentally though

Mark and I have a 10 year age and to be honest you wouldnt know, we are very similar with a similar outlook, plus he has a very youthfull appearance.

I just take the piss sometimes and call him an old man!

theres 8 yrs between me n jon and it seems perfect to me, we are about at the same place mentally, ive tried alot older and even slightly younger and this seems perfect.

my ex was 15yrs older than me i was 17 and he was 32 when we met, lasted 5 yrs had 2 beautiful boys with him, but he kept constantly saying i was getting angry with him because i was in the middle of growing up and it was a nasty rollercoaster at that age!! p***ed me right off

Theres 5 years between me and dh but you would never know. We have always pretty much wanted the same thing. He looks older than 31 (apperantly) and i look about 19 not 26 so in that way there is a big difference.

There's only 3 years between me and OH, so nothing really!!

Dionne i don't think men ever really grow up, think they all have Peter Pan syndrome!

Only a couple of years between Richard and I.

Who cares what the age gap is, so long as your happy and you get on then no worries I say!
