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. "
"I probably would. I certainly would've thought it through before dating her for three years, though. If you can't bring yourself to marry her, you're wasting her time. That's not fair to her.
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!"

"I'm still waiting for a wall on our northern border. As someone has pointed out somewhere, the majority of our foreign-born terrorists (like in 9/11) came through Canada.
(Note: This is a discussion-starting issue, not one that I…"
"Do you really think when he said "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall."That people understood that to be - "I'll build a wall only in a few places on the border, and…"
"If the silver market manipulation finally ends, the price of silver could skyrocket. As Mexico has a huge reserve of the metal in the ground, Mexico could be a very wealthy country overnight. They might build the wall to keep us out."
"It should be easy enough for everyone to claim to be right about this one.
Wall gets partially built, somewhere between a few feet and 1500 miles or such. People who didn't want a wall claim victory because it's not all the way from…"
