So I'm sittin' here watching worthless daytime TV and a Maury episode came on about "obscene age gaps!". According to the Maury show, the 15 year age difference between Jay and I is terrible. What a joke.

Anywho, this show has all of these people condemning age gap relationships and pointing out the flaws in them.

So, I want to know, why do you love your age difference?

For me, I love how mature and stable my older man is. He also makes me feel exceptionally protected, loved, taken care of and like I am the most amazing girl in the world. Oh, I also like his sexy salt 'n pepper hair. hehehe

Ho about you?

I don't mind age gaps. I hate to admit it, but I love men younger than me. I like being the older one, the one 'in charge' so to speak. It makes me feel like I have a bit more control over certain situations, and not only can I be a gf, but also a mentor so to speak, and hopefully nip the guy's bad habits in the bud lol.

Wishful thinking, but still wishful nonetheless, lol. I love my younger bf, though, to pieces.

I think that age gaps are only a problem when one partner is exceptionally young. In my opinion in cases where one partner is under the age of 25, and ther is more than a 10 yr age gap, the relationship is not beneficial to either party. With teenagers, I think there should probably be a 5 yr cap.

The only reason I feel this way is because at that age you are young and still figuring out who you are and what you want in life, learning how to take care of yourself and be a responsible person. When there is one partner who is much older with a partner who is so young and inexperienced not just sexually but in dealing with all that life can throw at a person, the older person usually becomes some what of a caregiver, or guiding force in the relationship. I think that a person needs to become self reliant and self aware before they enter a relationship where there is a marked age gap or experience level.

That whole figuring yourself out stage is REALLY important, and it is hard to do that and remain in a stable relationship with somebody who has already been there and done that. Once you have gotten beyond that point in your life however, I don't think age should be a factor.

LOL! Alan & I have that same 15 year difference and personally I don't love it or hate it. I don't even think about it really, because we've "clicked" right from the start. Makes me wonder what the Maury show would have to say about our "obscene" age gap if we told them we'd been together 20 years now. Bet that's longer than most of them have been or will be together with their partners.

I love hearing success stories, thanks!

I love our small little 6 year difference because hes been there and done that. He knows what to do in almost any situation, and he was already mature, had a stable job and a place when I got with him. I didnt have to worry about anything.

I love that my husband is mature, stable and protective. Maybe it is some sort of daddy complex I have or something. I don't care. I love that he is older. We have a 12 year age gap.

wow 15 yr age gap is a bad thing? hrm...lets see...hubby is 44 in april, i be 23 in october...so thats 21 yrs? bah who cares bout the age gap? i dont think that anyone under the age of 18 should even consider getting into a relationship with a gap of more than 5yrs but mature people who honestly dont care about the age difference shouldnt be looked at like freaks. weve had a bunch of people give us nasty looks at the mall when were holding hands or when we give each other a kiss, and as soon as those pricks see the kids and it clicks that our two beautiful boys really are our children its more annoying. i love that hes a mature guy who has his brain together and not in his britches 24/7 and he loves that im intelligent and willing to experiment. if two people love each other who cares how much of a difference there is?
okay im hopping off my soapbox now

My SO and I are starting out and we have a 27 year age difference. We expect to get a lot of strange looks and awkward comments over the years. Hell, in the past month or so, we have already had a fair share of these while we have traveled in a couple different states. Do we care? No.

The biggest concern we have is when we tell our families. We can always find new friends, if they cannot except us, but we cannot change our families. From what we have read, it is best to tell them early on. If they freak out, they will still usually come around after they see how much in love you are and that the relationship is real and not just a passing fling. Anyone have experience with this part of the age gap?

we have 19year age gap. We have gotten comments like when i was pregnant and gathering things for my baby shower that " i would not be giving my 15year old daughter no baby shower if she got pregnant" lol i turned and looked at hubby and kissed him and said well i guess its a good thing im 20 and we are together lol. that was a funny day the look on them ladies faces was priceless. also have been looking at dvds together and some women was trying to get her daughter to look at them with her and she turned and looked at hubby and said "at least urs is still interested" haha. makes me giggle every time. also when i was in hospital and was getting taken away for surgery nurse said to say good bye so hubby kissed me and we went off nurse when she was pushing me down hallway was like "so that must be your boyfriend i thought he was your father until he kissed u like that." lmao

My man is 13 years older than me, and I love it. He's very youthful and looks very young, so it looks/feels like we're really only half that far apart. I love what other shave already mentioned: maturity, stability, etc. But I also really love the different cultural perspectives we bring to the table: we're constantly introducing each other to classic music, movies, books, etc that were favorites of ours and the other likely never heard about thanks to the age difference. He also has the benefit of more sex experience and more sexual confidence than newbie me, and I'm loving that.

I love the age gap. Women are proven to be years ahead of men at any given age, so it's nice to have that gap to offset it. I am a believer of that whole "women are farther along than men" in the mature sense, I don't know if other people think the same, but for me, I love the age gap. THey're in a more stable place in their lives typically, and know what they want.

We have a 14 year age gap. I honestly don't notice it or think about it. We just clicked from the beginning though, so the age difference just kind of melted into the background from day 1. Anyway, there are things he is familiar with that I'm not, and vice versa. Mostly pop culture phenomenon from our various generations, but it's never an issue - in fact I enjoy that part because it causes both of us to learn something new about each other.
