My husband is almost 2 years younger than me. When we first got married, he was super irresponsible because he was just a kid (21). Now, he's taken on a lot of responsibility and is acting a little more mature, though I've definitely trumped him in the maturity department.

I will be the first to be admit the rather large age difference between Tim and I. There are 12 years between us. It affected us when we first knew each other because we couldn't agree on anything, and we had no common ground. I was 15, he was 27 when we met. That was probably half the problem. Now, I'm 19 and he's 31. I think we've really grown on each other since we met. Now, I guess it doesn't really affect the marriage.

DH is 7 years older than me....I love older men...I couldn't imagine being with a 22 year old...DH makes me feel secure and I knew he would be able to take care of me and besides we are pretty much on the same maturity level

DH is 5 years older than I am.... He's 28, I'm 23. I think the fact that we're both settled in our life together is a major reason why we work together so well.

DH is 7 months older than me. So no, I don't think it affects our marriage.

My DH is 2 years and a bit older than me. I dont really think it has affected our relationship. We have been together since HS so we grew up together as it is.

There is 4 years and 2 1/2 months between us, it does not affect our marriage and didn't affect our relationship when we were dating either.

Dh is 5 years older than me he is 35 and I am 30. we have always go along great. I really don't think the age differance has made and differance in our marriage other than i had 2 children before we met and now we have 1 together. i would like one more but don't think he does he thinks he is getting to old.

Not a significant enough one to matter any. He's 13m, 6d older than I am. He's....more...immature than I am..but, its not really a problem because Im too darn serious anyway. He lightens me up, I serious him up..its all good. Its a good balance.

We're only a year apart so it doesnt make much of a difference.

He's 17 months younger than me. Maybe it would've made a difference when we were teenagers (he's a day younger than my baby brother) but at 27 and 28 it doesn't affect anything. Except that he likes to point out how close to 30 I am!
