My older sister is only 6 days younger than her husband. They both lived all over the world before they met, which was in London when he had returned from Germany for a friends stag party. It turned out he was from the next town along from our childhood village & they were born in he same hospital. Spooky!

They felt an instant comfort together & he literally went back to Germany to break up with his girlfriend, resign from his job & move back to the UK. He proposed after 8 weeks & they've been married for 27 years in May. Being around them is like wrapping myself in a comfy warm blanket.

Currently not partnered (nor want to be!), but my Aunt says “Marry old, marry rich & marry often!” :lol-2:

I know she doesn’t mean it as she has been married for over 50 years though thick and thin.

Biggest age gap I’ve had in a partnership was 9 years. Never noticed a difference in our ages.

he's older
Only a couple years shy of Bruce Springsteen and Bruce isn't old so neither is Gary
but i was always an old soul
We like a lot of the same music (saddly not Bruce)

when we first got together i was 30 and him 49
He always says your only as old as the woman you feel !

But it just means i never got to know my lovelly MIL and FIL for long enough but then my dad died young so that goes both ways

it is a bit harder now with him retired the last couple of years and not in great health but life is what you make of it

I just wish i had been of the generation that knew cheaper petrol

He is about 1 year and 4 months older. I must have liked that age gap because the previous husband was born the exact same day as this one. At least they don't have the same first names.

Wow! Lol

I set this poll up to be private, so nobody knows how you voted.

31 years here. :wavey:
I doubt anyone here enjoys a greater age difference.

Kenny, you must be the older partner. Unless you hooked up with a 90 year old!

I know two people who were born when dad was in his 90’s and mom was in her 20’s. One is an only child, the other is youngest by about 70 years. The second was 3 when dad died. Mom was the Guatamalean housekeeper. He said dad rode horses until he was 96 and jumped the fence on the horse. Neither one really has any memories of dad. Both are in their 60’s now.

My father was 20 years older than my mother so I’ve never thought anything of age gaps.

My current husband is 10 years older.

My first husband was 8 years older.

Ex-fiancé 1 was 38 years older.

Ex-fiancé 2 was 3 months older.

ITO pop culture references and shared upbringing I probably had more in common with the ex 3 months older. But for years after we split, the ex 38 years older was the one every man I looked at was compared to.

Then I met my now husband and I stopped comparing. We’ve now been together for 12 years and married for 9.

Yup, he's the youngin.

It's not my fault all these young whipper snappers throw themselves at my feet.
When people tell us I'm robbing the cradle he says he's robbing the grave. :lol-2:

At least Bibi's favorite person will carry on when I'm gone.
Those two get along famously, and I read that parrots can be traumatized when their 'mate' dies.
Bibi's 7, and I hear conures can live up to 40 years if all their many needs are met.
