Does being with someone with a huge age gap work out?

Started seeing someone and we really hit it off and are so happy together…but he’s 15 yrs older than me. I know people will judge the age gap so I’m just wondering if anyone else is in similar scenario… did you stay together or did was the age gap too much? Do you eventually just not care what other people think?

Me and my partner have a 15 year age gap, 7 years, 2 children later and we are still together…:crossed_fingers:

Do you and know what your happiness looks like!!

We have a 16 year age gap, and are going strong! :black_heart:

My husband and I are 10 years apart. I’m 10 years older than him. We have been together almost 4 years married almost 3 years. I think it’s good and it works

My family is based on age gap relationships. I’m 22 and he’s 43. And I never allow other people’s opinion to push me away. He is such a loving man, and I mean, we do have our ups and downs and our age gap gives us a different view if the world, but I wouldn’t change it. I’m glad I’m with him. Just think, when I was born, he was celebrating his 21st birthday. Lol. There’s a little humor in it. But there’s definitely nothing wrong with it.

My husband is 11 years older than me! 4 years later and we’re still going strong :heart:

My husband is 11 yrs older and we’ve been together for 6

14 years difference between my husband and I. Been together 3 years, blended our families and have a daughter together as well. It’s not always easy, but it’s wonderful. Wouldn’t have it any other way. If you mesh well and love each other, age is just a number.

disclaimer assuming that 15 year age gap isn’t him being 30 and you being 15…

I’m married to someone 17 years older than me. Been together 6 years. 2 beautiful kids. It’s not about its about the man. If he is a good man who respects you and treats you right. Then go for it don’t let numbers put you off. Wish you lots of happiness :slightly_smiling_face:

My husband and I are 17 years apart. We’ve been together 12 years. 2 beautiful boys and a wonderful life. Don’t let age affect love.

My parents are 16 years apart and married 30 years. My husband and I are also 16 years apart and together for 7 years :heart:

I’ve been dating a man 20yrs older than myself for going on 3yrs now (32 & 52). People stare, we point it out to each other and have a giggle.

Sometimes he’ll talk about things from before I was born. We have similar interests and same love language. It’s a pretty normal relationship with a few extra laughs.
