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…"

"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!
"I understand what you mean but I don't know how we can accurately measure this. Polls only tell us what people permit themselves to say. Premarital counseling sessions are known to at least prevent divorce. That is a good indicator that it…"
"Right out the gate you make a heavy handed assumption that most marriages are doomed (first sentence, "dead relationships"). With only your opinions to guide you, you posit that marriage is a dated cultural phenomenon needing to be put out…"
