I would just go wit it. 11 years isn't really that big an age gap.
If you are happy why are you worried? What are you scared about?

Michelle I feel so alone sometimes and was co-dependent and mine own older children telling me I should divorce their father...then I finally found someone that showed me what I should have had so many years..I truly feel like a HS girl when I am with him..he is amazing and being young is not an issue he is wise beyond his years..
Thank you so much for your suggestions

I suggest taking things slow and enjoy it.
I know what you mean by finally knowing what it's like to be treated with respect and love. I found that 100 times over with my 2nd husband. It made me wonder why I stuck with the idiot #1 for so long!!!!!

So I guess you are right.
