I met my husband when I was 18 and he was 29. I could never have married a guy my age....to immature back then! By the time I was 20, I was married and had two boys. I am now 36 years old, have an 18 and a 16 year old boy and have been married for over 16 years! It's crazy! I am glad my life happened the way it did. I currently have a licensed daycare in my home and have six full time kids ages 6 months to 4 years. I take care of these kids for 9 hours a day and after that I'M POOPED! I love my daycare kids and kids in general, BUT I am glad to have the rest after the day is done. My husband is a great help and he is a great man! He always has been! We compliment each other well and alot of it has to do with age difference!

My hubby is 15 yrs older than me, We married when I had just become 20 and he was 35. People thought the age difference would be a problem but that was their problem!
I knew I wanted to settle down and have a family but boys in their 20's etc just aren't really ready.
From the moment I met my husband I knew he was a good man, He is a wondeful husband & father, So I was obviously right!
We've been married 10 yrs now and yes we've had some tricky times but nothing we haven't got through, Just the stress of 3 little ones. I've never doubted my love & would truly be lost without him, He's not just my husband but my Best friend :o)

My hubby is 16 yrs older than me he's 40 and I just turned 24. Age isn't nothing but a number. I love our age differene because he always baby and spoils me and I know a younger guy would never do that. Sometimes I tease him about his age but only outta love. He's the best hubby ever and I would never trade him for a younger man.

Yes he is 21 years older than me. But I love him every year of it! LOL. It seems as though we both are aging, I am still a little bit IMMATURE. i need marriage counseling. We have been engaged since June of 05. We got married October 15th, 2009!!! Here I am loving him more and more each day. It is hard for me to be with someone younger than me due to their immaturity. Now its me. I have a HARD time with jealousy. I Do have issues. I AM STRESSED! I love him more than ever but am afraid that my jealousy is getting in the way of our marriage and I surely don't want a DIVORCE!!!!
Please Help Me. WHAT WOULD UUUUU DO????

I met my husband when he was 23 and I was bearly turnning 17(so 16) :) my mom was understanding she it was not really a big age diference ,6 years apart at 18 we got to go on dates ♥... and now we are still together

My husband asked me one day if I remembered what I was doing when JFK was shot! I started laughing. He remembers being in Junior high and exactly what he was doing. I was probably getting my diaper changed. Life is good!

[deleted account]

We have been married for almost 22 years now. He will turn 65 this year and shortly after, I'll turn 51. We actually got saved after a couple of years into our marriage! It has been a growing experience that I wouldn't change for any other life. We adopted 2 of my nieces a few years ago when they were teenagers. Life is good and God is good! I used to work for our church as a school teacher and as a secretary, but now I stay at home full-time, We have 12 miniature dairy goats, 2 horses, a donkey, chickens, cats, and dogs on 48 acres. We are active in our church Wednesday night children's ministry. My husband has 3 children, 2 daughter-in-laws, 1 son-in-law, and 7 grandchildren from his first marriage. We have the 2 girls together, one son-in-law, and one granddaughter. We love being empty-nesters and I find my life more full now that I'm home, than when I worked. My husband plans to work for 2 more years as an orthopaedic surgeon. He also volunteers with the county mounted patrol in the search and rescue dept. Life is good.

My husband is actually 6 months younger than me but he's a very old soul. He was always very responsible and mature.

My husband is 9 years older than me. We have been together 3 years and married 1 with a beautiful baby boy. My husband thought it was funny when we met, because I was 21 and he was 30, he thought he'd never see me again. But I had moved in with him by the next week! We are very much in love xo

My husband is 11 months younger then me & there's only one month out of the year that he doesn't tease me about being older then him! LOL! I just tell him that makes me a cougar. As a matter of fact the 1st time I met him & was told he was 18 (I was almost 20) I wasn't even going to go out w/ him, that makes me laugh now. Good thing I did 'cause we've been married for 12 years & have 2 great boys!

my husband and I married when I was 18, he was 30. I had my 1st son at 19 and now Im 25 with 3 boys and he is the best dad ever. I agree with Stephanie about the maturity level, I felt like guys my age just were'nt ready for me so I had to have someone older. It worked out for the best because we've been together for 6 yrs and going strong!!! And we also go together so well he's like a best friend/big brother to me also!

yeah its definitely one less thing to have to worry about when they have all the teenage boy stuff out of their systems and are really ready not just saying they are to start a family, its definitely hard work especially with four boys and with him already having two before ours were ever thought of made me see the kind of father he really was, which made it alot easier on me knowing that he such a wonderful father i knew from their that he was the one!

[deleted account]

Awww, tha's sweet :)

I'm 26 and my husband is 36. It's really weird when we discuss our different point of views regarding teh same era, for example the 80's. While he was in high school listening to The Cure and grinding skateboards, I was in preschool watching Rainbow Bright and potty training! There is a wonderful balance though. Maybe the saying about women maturing faster then men is true... now we're on the same level.

I also met my husband when I was 18 and he was 24. I am so glad that he walked into my life boys my age I could have never married. We have been married for 19 years and have 2 great children. I would not of had it any other way. Yes there is an age difference but it never really mattered we have had such a wonderful life. He is the best.

Quoting Faith:

My husband was 32 when we got married and I was 23. We got married after knowing each other for less then 7 months. We have a 5 month old baby and never had a second thought about it :)



Similar story:  I was 22 and he was 36 when we got married, with eight months of" getting to know" prior. Now also have a five month old, and very happy!!

my husband is 12 years older than me. He is the best man i can ever ask for. We have been married for 10 years and have 2 wonderful boys. I think older man are more mature, more focused and simply appreciate a younger woman in their life.

My hubby is 9 years older than me. I dated guys that were my age for years when I was divorced, but to this day I have said that I had to find an older man to treat me the way that he does. He is 50 and I am just about to turn 42, we have been married 7 1/2 wonderful years and to this day...he still opens car doors for me, and treats me like a queen. He gets the same treatment from me. Even though I cant because of surgery, when I can I make sure that he has a good dinner for him when he gets home from work. He does his hobbies...hunting, fishing, outdoorsy stuff and I spend time with my friends when I want to. There is no jealousy or any other childish games between us. We love each other, and we are each other's best friend. And I too Thank God everyday for him!!

My husband is almost 8 years older than me but things couldn't be better. I have always gotten along with guys older than me and even though my parents threw a fit when we got together, we went ahead and got married. Now we are proud parents of a 2 week old little girl and he has been such a huge help. I thank God every day that He put him in my life.

My husband is 10 years older than me and the truth is I am really very comfortable with
that and so is he. I thank the universe each day for sending him to me. I really don't think that I could be this happily married to anyone else. He often tells me the same thing. We love each other very much. He is so wonderful!

My husband is 16 years older than me. I had been married before and had 2 kids, he on the other hand had never been married or had kids. So now, after 5 years of marriage, we have a 13 year old, 11 year old, and a 2 year old (his one and only)...the day she was born, he picked her up and said "Come see Grandpa...I mean Dad..." I never laughed so hard...

My husband is 9.5 years older than me and I wouldnt change it for the world. He is a wonderful man and since I was forced to grow up at a young age it makes it easier to relate with him. We are rasing a intergrated loving family and I couldnt ask for a better man. We have been together now for 5 years married for 3 and he is the one I see myself growing old with. With me being in the military and us having a family business he is just beyond supportive and loving and caring. I dont think I can ever really express how much I love him.

My husband is almost exactly 5 1/2 years older than me and I love him with all my heart. We got together when I was 17 and he was 22. We got married when I was 18 going on 19 and have now been married for 7 years. I got pregnant with our son when we'd been married for a little over 7 months. I don't regret a moment of it. I much prefer being with an older man as they've got more experience, are much more mature and more inclined to carry on with a true relationship instead of just a wham, bam, thank you ma'am (at least from my experiences...can't speak for others.) Anyway, I consider myself one of the luckiest women on the planet to be married to such a wonderful human being and I thank God for giving him to me.

Yup. DH is about 7 years older than me. I've always been attracted to older men. Maybe because they make a young woman look even younger! ;0)

My husband is 9 years older than me...I was 17 when I met him and he was 25, however he turned 26 then month after. I got pregnant abouut 6 months into our relationship, and then shortly after turned 18. We were dating for a year when we got married in Nov. 2004, and Jan. 2005 we had our first child. I definately was nervous, I know what the statistics say, however he was the best man I had ever been with. Which I was still a little nervous because of my 'young mind'. We now have 2 children, and we are going on our 5th year of marriage, have been together for 6 years. Still going strong!

I met my huband when I was 18 as well. I did not the maturity level of those guys my age either so I found one that was 9 years older than me. Don't get me wrong, I am so happy that we are together, but back when I was 18 I thought that he was just another crush! I was very young but like you I was married and had two girls by the time I was 24, wow! My girls are now 5 and 3 and I have been married for 6 years. He is my other half.
