james m replied to Rico's discussion Would you marry a woman who is 6 years older than you?
"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. "
