Am I wrong to date a 46 year old?

I’ve been legally married since I was 16; I’m 22 now. We have two kids and have been split up for several months now. I met someone else (someone older) and completely fell in love. He’s 46 with an 11-year-old, and they love my kids and me unconditionally. He’s helping me get the divorce I’ve wanted for a really long time. Am I doing this right? Should I stop seeing the 46-year-old?

Stop the insanity… Resolve your current relationship issues. Dont take on additional stress and B ,S. Spend some time alone, heal and find YOURSELF…

You don’t need validation from us, if you love him and you are genuinely happy, go for it, I was with a 36 year old when I was 18, were together for the best part of 5 years, before we went our sperate ways, you’ll get judged no matter what you do, so just be happy and know only what you and him think and feel is what matters.

Age is only a number! Age does not define happiness! YOU define your happiness. So if this is what YOU want, don’t listen to others opinions and go for it girl!

The key is to not ask others opinions. My husband is 25. I’m 45.

I recommend you wait. Jump out of the bad relationship into singlehood for a while so you can learn what you really want for your kids and yourself. 16 years old is super young to start “life” with someone.

Momma ask yourself these three simple things that only you can answer and that’s your answer… Am I healthy? Am I happy? Am I safe? No one’s opinion except yours is the only one you need to listen to.

If he makes you happy and treats you like a queen, don’t let anyone stop you.

If you’re still married, yes you’re wrong to date someone else. That’s adultery. If you’re not happy, leave & get divorced so you can be with the 46yo

Your over 18 age is just a number now

Likely you’ll have a better relationship if you have time single between them. Especially since you were only 16 when married. Get to know yourself as an independant adult first.
