I am 22, my fella is 41 and we have been together around 2 years. I am pregnant with my first child, he has two teenagers from a previous relationship who luckily accept our relationship! My question here is what do you think of this? As i find many people who don't know is as a couple find thus really hard to get thier heads around, despite the fact that both our families are fully accepting.

my friend had a baby with an older man that had grandchildren and older children. they are not together but that is for other issues then his age. I think if you are happy and he is a good daddy thats all that matters age is just a number :)

I'm 23 and my husband is 38 and we are trying to have a baby! I believe as long as your truly happy, your guy loves you, and your family has accepted him into the family then you shouldn't worry about anyone else. My family was also nervous about me marrying an older man but I wouldn't have it any other way! Congratulations and I hope you have a smooth pregnancy!

My husband is 11 years older than me and it was hard! Everyone wasnt happy with it but the got over it . They still treat me like a kid even though im not. but still age is just a number so dont worrywhat they think. You love him and he loves you thats all that really matters

I'm in a similar situation as you. I'm 24, expecting (15 weeks), and my baby's father is 41. He doesn't act it, he acts younger which is cool/fun, so most people are shocked to hear his age. In the beginning it took a toll on me mentally like are people thinking he's my father, is he too old, etc? But as the relationship grew, I said who really cares? He treats me so good, he makes me feel beautiful, he loves me deeply, he takes care of me, and now he's going to be the father of my first child.



Do your own thing girl, people will always have something to say. Live your own life, if you are happy, you're on the right path. Take it day by day. And the best part is that your family accepts you guys. You have nothing to worry about.

I think age is just a number and people need to stop criticizing. I mean I get the whole 30 year old dating a 16 year old... that's just wrong on so many levels. But honestly if you're adults and you are doing just fine that's awesome keep up the good work! I have an Aunt who is 12 years older than her husband and she had 5 kids from a previous marriage when they got together. He was 21 and she was 32 when they got married and they went on to have 8 more kids and have been married for 26 years now. People could not understand what on earth he was doing marrying someone who was 12 years older and had 5 kids.. but honestly they are one of the happiest couples you have ever met. So I say who cares what other people think be happy :) and the benefit to you is he's probably 98% more mature than men your age!!
