Is 16 years too much of an age difference?

Irish Fyre Queen Irish Fyre Queen
So, my husband is 16 years my senior. I was 19 and he was 35 when we started seeing each other. I don't see an issue with it but my husband says "I can't think of myself at 16 years old looking into baby carriages and thinking 'yep, you're gonna be mine'" Lol. I'm now 30 and he's 46. So, is 16 years too much?

Definitely not. It would be different if it was like his little joke statement, haha. Or even if you had been 16 yourself and he so much older.

The fact of the matter is that you two have been together for so long and made it work, because yes, which such an age gap and you having been so young at the time, there was a vast maturity difference I'm sure. HOWEVER, you two have obviously made it work out, and that is all that matters in the end.

Age is just a number at the end of the day.

I dated a man 15 years my senior once and it was good until I realized he was more immature than I was, hah!

Um, Fire are you me? Cause that is exactly when my husband and I hooked up and we share the same age difference. We've been together for almost 14 years. If two people are complimentary and work well together in the relationship, it doesn't matter what their ages are.

My mother is 8 years older than my dad, but you really couldn't tell because my mother really looks ten years younger than she really is at all times.

Agreed, it is a non-issue unless you let it be.

As far as I'm concerned as long as everyone is over 18 and concenting it shouldn't matter what age they are.

If it works for you then why do you care? For some people 16 years is too much and others not.

For me? I'd say yes. I always preferred potential partners to be within 3 years of my age. I know two couples however who are 13 years apart. One is my husband's parents, and the other being a colleague of mine. In both cases the woman is younger.
