I am a 26 year old man and I've been with my 32 year old girlfriend for 3 great years. She is incredibly beautiful, loving, sexual, my family loves her, and we are in the same place in life (we agree…Continue
"I married the first time at 27 to a woman who was six years older and it was a disaster. Would like to say the age difference had nothing to do with it, but it did; she was a little further along in her career, past taking risks like I still wanted…"
"I am 30 and my wife is 35. Honestly, with all the reasons you just gave (beautiful, loving, same place in life), would you really choose to throw those things away because of a small age difference? If so, I would tend to think you should also…"
I thought about it too, in my case, but people that I trusted said it was a non-issue, just like we did here. Age difference can be an issue, so I don't think it's silly to consider it. And…"
"Hello again!I just wanted to give a short update. I proposed to her last Saturday and she said yes! I no longer feel anxious about anything and I feel silly for worrying about something so foolish. I realized I was just getting cold feet and my…"
"While adoption is a wonderful option, don't discount the possibility of having biological children. My brother and I were both born after our parents were well into their thirties, without complications. Truth be told, I credit my…"
"If you love her then yes, marry her. I married a woman 20 years older than me and we've been together for over 13 years! I think that what you're feeling is natural, everybody feels nervous before they take the plunge. "

If you want…"
"and I'd be a fool to not marry her due to a slight age gap.
Yes, I think so. :) But marriage is a big deal and it's good that you took the time to think it and talk it out. Good luck this weekend...let us know if she says yes!
"What exactly is it what you are trying to do? Is this a roleplay thing or do you actually want to learn skills? The things you are talking about take time to learn. People went through year long apperenticeships to learn things like blacksmithing or…"
Hello, I am recently returning to these forums after a couple of years with a new-found interest in old world traditions and community building.I want to combine these two interests by forming a fraternal order for young men to be part of a positive group. Because most young men don't have a lot of disposable income the idea would be to facilitate their practical, rather than financial, contributions to their communities.

"I prefer the ESV. I am a theology student and so the "essentially-literal" translation is useful to me since the Bible is the bulk of my research material. For my own personal devotions though I have enjoyed using both the NIV and NLT. As…"
"There are many, many theories about what you are asking. Simply put, your question boils down to the purpose of the atonement, or "why did Jesus have to die?". I wrote a brief (2 page) essay on the subject for a theology class which was…"
