I was 19 he was 21. Our parents were fine with us dating, until 2 months after we met, when I moved in with him and a month after that we got married. His parents knew each other their whole lives before they married. They thought for sure we were making the biggest mistake of our lives. Been together 18 years.

We were the same age, 18. My dad accepted my wife with open arms. My mom...well lets just say she went so far as to tell the wifes mom that I was a bad person and would cause nothing but pain. Boy did she get an earful from me! 21 years later my mom make comments about my wife, oh she is nice about it but she still has not fully excepted my wife. And ya, she still gets an ear full from me about it. Some people never learn.

We were 21 and 36, and very few people approved. That was 20+ years ago.

The first time we dated I was 14 and he was 15. My parents both loved him. We broke up after 9 months but remained close friends and got back together about 2 years ago. We got married a few weeks ago. So far, everybody still loves him, and I don't expect that's going to change at all.

I was 26 and he was 40. We're currently 28 and 42. My family adores him, and are happy about the age difference - my mother and her boyfriend and my father and his wife are both more distanced in age than my man and I. I suppose it's a learned behavior for me.

We both were 20. After my parents met him, they really liked him. It's a long-distanced relationship so they were concerned about me traveling to see him but other than that, they love him.

She was 18. I was 28. Honestly, very few people approved. There was support, but not a lot of approval. Almost 3 years later (Jan 24th), we're stronger than ever!

My BF is 10 years older than I am. I am pretty old so my parents dont really care but I like it. He's very responsible and has a good head on his shoulders. Our relationship has always been very steady and it all has to do with his age.

We are 6 years apart. I was 18, he was 24 My mom and dad, well, I dont know. I think at first they were concerned, but then they realized that maybe he was good for me. He loved me, and my son, and he would teach me how to grow up. He actually asked my dad to marry me, so that was cool. I don't think many people do that anymore.

I was 20, she was 23. My parents were so grateful I had found somebody decent. Most people actually assume that she is the younger one due to the dynamics of our relationship.

I was 17 and in high school. He was 29 and worked with my sister, who set us up. I was living with her at the time. My sister wanted us to be together so she didn't have an issue with the age difference at all. My mother when she finally met him at my high school graduation didn't care at all. His parents didn't have any issue with the age difference or at least none that I know of. His younger sister you was 25 at the time we met was the only one who had an issue with me and she had no problem letting me know that. She told him about how I was too young, not mature enough and that I still hadn't had my fun years yet so I was going to be wild for him. That was all news to me.
8 years later we are still going strong so who cares if anyone had any issues.

I was 16 and the boyfriend was 18 so the parents didn't care much (except to say that I was still to young for a boyfriend lol).

My sister, who was 21 at the time, was dating a guy who was 34 or 35 and the parents were not happy about that in any way. They frequently voiced their opinions saying things like there must be something wrong with the guy if he couldn't find someone his own age to date blah blah blah. Lots of things that were rather rude. I didn't think it should matter how old he was, but clearly they did.

I think my boyfriend was 23 when I first started dating him, which was when I was 19. He looks a little older than he really is, so my dad was having a fit about it, until my mom reminded him that the age difference between them is about 8 years. Everyone else seemed to be fine with it.

I was 18, she was 16. Our parents didn't see much wrong with it. I think my parents were still too pumped about finding out I was straight to be worried about anything at that point, and hers have always been super laid back about everything.

Both 21. He turns 22 on Sunday!

My parents were very happy. We've known each other since he was 15 and I was 14 and they thought it was about time.

We're 18 years apart (I'm almost 22, he just turned the big 4-0) and I'm not sure how my dad will take it, considering my dad is only 13 years older than him. I hope he takes it well.

I was 15 when we first started dating and he was 18 I believe. My parents were honestly, just relieved to see that I'd finally brought someone nice home. I think they were just too happy to see that I'd gotten away from a bad, bad relationship (one of those crappy high school ones) but it was abusive, so I guess they were just glad I'd gotten away from the ex bf at the time. Now, when I decided it was time to tell them he had a child, they did freak! It didn't take long and they came back around though. They've always liked my BF very much. He's so helpful and my mom wouldn't know what to do without him! He's her "go-to" person for all her crazy i-pod stuff and light bulb changings, computer help, etc. They are grateful to have him. They didn't ever have a problem with the age difference, had he been like most 18 year old boys, I'm sure they would've disliked him a lot! But being that he was so mature for an 18 year old boy, they took very well to him. I never thought my parents would ever be ok with a man I brought home, thankfully they are!

I'was 20 she was 21. My parents are awesomely supportive in every way. I know other parents can be passive aggressive. Telling bad things about the partner of their child behind his/her back during the relationship and most likely after. Girl parents are mostly overprotective but I can get it, it's not easy if somebody is fucking your daughter. If you son is fucking somebody only think I can think of is being proud of him?

it's complicated. He's almost 11 years my senior. My folks were PISSED when they found out.

There is a sixteen year age difference, I won't reveal how old I was when we met. My mother recorded our phone conversations and confronted him in our living room telling him he had to marry me or leave me alone. She kicked me out some time later, then my father accused me of being a prostitute...it was a mess.

Well, some fourteen years later, we're still not legally married but we're very happy together!

We started dating each other when we were 15,,almost 45 years ago. Since there is only 3 months difference in our age, no reaction from anyone concerning age difference!

He was 19 and I was 17, but by the time we met for the first time I had turned 18. No one really seemed to care about the age difference, but my parents were a bit concerned because I met him over the internet.
