Good morning Stephanie, I am a lady of a 32 years old and a man of 50 yrs old asked me to marry him but my family doesn’t want him, I really love this man. I don’t know what to do . I read your blog everyday and I must commend the great job you are doing. God bless you as you and your fans help me to solve this problem.

SL Fabz – What to do you think? Is age nothing but a number? or is this another case of love being blind to obvious consequences? Let’s hear it from you…MalaikainLove will  be reading this for your advice.

xoxo

    If she loves him, let them face the challenge and get married. Nothing good comes without challenges.

    I am also involved in this age ‘dilema’ as am in love with a girl that is 4yrs older than me and not even my friends agree to such talk more of my parents.
    I really don’t know what else to do as I also have a worker who is very loyal, obedient and hardworking serving under me. She is 5yrs younger than myself and whom I sometimes consider as being under age. Presently I am begining to pick quite good interest in her because of the ‘age factor’.
    One reason people give about the ‘age factor’ is the issue of ‘aging’ difference. When your spouse ages faster and above you, people believe you lose much interest in them.
    Another reason is the mental/psychological factor. A spouse who is about 7yrs older than you will always consider you immature when it comes to reasoning and advising. They see you as someone who can’t advise them or think along with them.
    May God help us to make the right and better choices in marriage, amen.

    Age is nothing but number, in this case if the lady in question is happy the should join them in union, you never can tell it might be blessed union from above.

    The lady is not a child, she knows what’s wrong nd right and she knows perfectly where she can be happy because one major important objectives in marriage is to be happy. Go on girl nd choose ur heart desire dnt allow any1 discourage u od been happy

    She isn’t young too. If her family are not happy that she found someone even at that critical age, then, they should have another reason aside the age. Aside age, if no other reason is given, then I think the age is okay.

    Not much diff in their age bracket. Her Family cannot marry her. If the guy is Godly, educated n average financially I think she should go ahead. She too 4 a lady is not getting any younger !!!

    I don’t see a problem with the age difference, it’s not as if it’s up to 20years. Haba! Wake up, u shld be more concerned abt his person, who he is in and out.
    You are a 32 yrs old woman, he’s a 50 yrs old man, dnt deceive urself wt those figures. Abi is he already acting like an old man?

    I. Wwant to know if the man iss a divorcee or widower. What happened to his.first marriage. You have a good family, by discouraging u, all of them cannot be wrong. This is not love biut greed. You better look for. your real man, before is too late . Nice day

    Personally age should not be a determining factor when two people are sincerely in L♥√ع. In as much as they understand each other, they are G̲̣̣̣̥ό̲̣̣̣̥ό̲̣̣̣̥d †̥ gooo!!! It Į̸̸̨§ even better marrying a matured man with experience, am sure he must have been in a marriage before this Α̲̅πϑ must have learnt one or two lessons from thξ failed marriage. He would not want his marriage †̥ fail again,he would not want †̥ be stigmatized as an african man, so he would D̶̲̥̅̊Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ all it takes †̥ make this one work. I feel she would get thξ best care Α̲̅πϑ L♥√ع with him than from thξ younger irresponsible men that are everywhere now. Please go ahead with him if Ɣ☺ΰ truly L♥√ع him for who he Į̸̸̨§. Thanks.

Stand your grounds n let your Parent knw your mind is made up. Age is only a Number. You are the one wearing the shoe.
