Age Is Just A Number! 7 Ladies Share Their Experiences On Dating & Marrying Older Men

Permit me to start this post today by thanking you all for your daily comments. This blog would be nothing without your comments and contributions which truly brighten up my day, everyday!

But most interestingly SL Fabz, its not only about me, but how you inspire other readers with your comments. Believe me, I learn a lot from your comments and I’m sure other readers do too.

The last time I put up a Talk To Steph post where a 23 year-old lady asked if it was OK to marry a 36 year-old man, many of you ladies gave some great advice and also shared your experiences with dating and marrying older men. (CLICK HERE if you missed it). Today, I’d like to share those comments:

I really don’t see anything wrong with that. My husband is 20 yrs older than me and today, I’m happy because that was the best step I’ve ever taken in my life. But remember to pray about it.

Age is just a number!!! I had the same problem you are having now then because my hubby is almost 11yrs older than me and we are happily married for 4yrs now. In my previous relationship, the guy was just 4yrs older than me but we were always quarreling & even fought severally. So I had to quit him before I met my hubby who is loving and caring who does everything for me. From my experience, I’ve realized age is just a number if you like d person in question. So since you like every thing about him, then age should not be the hindrance because that man will handle any challenge in that marriage maturely, since you are not matured enough to handle some situations considering your age. Good luck.

I am 30 and my husband to be is 42. We are happy and love one another. That’s the key. At first I was really bothered about his age but not until we started planning our wedding that I felt nothing was wrong with it.

My husband is 11 years older than I am and guess what? We dated for 6 whole years so you can imagine how old I was at the time. Presently, I’m 23. We get along very well. He’ll pamper you to pieces and love you to the moon and back. Trust me. #wink

My husband is 14yrs older than I am. Pretty sure you got the message!

I am 22 and dating a guy of 36 and I love him ssoooo very much. Follow your heart, there is nothing wrong with the age.

My boyfriend is 17yrd older than me…I’m not the least bothered about it. Sweety please say yes to him and ask for some more time to know him better. Goodluck.

What do you think? Is age really just a number?

What if the reverse was the case and the lady was older than the man, would you still say age is just a number? Let’s discuss!

    Age shouldn’t be a determining factor to love anyone. Our parents are usually older than us and we always love them. Even though we can’t marry them, we love them still. Love comes from within, if you love someone, you see beyond the age.
    Cheers, Mj

    Lets go back in biblical times. When God created Adam in his own image, and later created Eve out of Adam, We should say no one knew how old Adam was neither did Eve asked him how old he was. Now you will agree that Adam was older. When a younger lady got married to an older, there is something that caught her attention about him. No one knows but God. Perhaps it’s karma. We cannot change what has been destined to be. Older men are better ecperienced in almost every aspect that has to do with todays life. Older men are more contentive. Willing to help or advised where and when it’s needed. They are lots of fun in every aspect in life to make his lover, or wife be happy. Hope you’ve digested all the responses. KEEP THAT SMILE ALWAYS.

    older men are always better.women grow older faster Dan men cos of childbirth nd taking care of the kids nd much more. U will always still look younger in his eyes cos he is older. he will pet u more nd overlook ur imperfection cos he will always look at u as a little girl. older men are always better nd even more responsible.

      Well said Mama. I think we are in the same boat. Fairly new in the home.He always sees me as his baby girl and wants to express how much he cares. Age is just a number. You are well taken care of by a more mature guy… always concerned in the midst of your imperfections. You may begin to wonder how excessively he demonstrates his love and concern. If you’ve been through challenges before you will always appreciate an older, more responsible and caring person. Always ready to listen and encourage you and wants you happy all the time. Live your life loving, give your heart to love, you’ll never regret it…i thought i wouldn’t give in to it earlier but i have never regretted a bit.

    Age has never been a factor but what age attracts is very important. Man’s ego is unavoidable, only a submissive woman enjoys her relationship. With respect to that, I have come to realise that Ladies submits easily to older men, thereby putting the man at his best behavior.

    @ Randolph Rogers, the reverse case of what you said…what if the guy you are so much in Love with is a year younger than you are, and of course its a bother to you but not to him …does this still goes in accordance with your culled from the bible or its a negation of it. The guy is july 8, 1983 while the girl is june 22, 1983.

    My husband is 18 years older than me. We have been together for more than 7yrs. We love eachother so very much. He gave me the stability and contentment I ever wished for. Our sex life is superb. He is the best man I have ever met in life from all ramifications. When I met him, I had two younger men in my life that I would have choosen to marry one a year older than me, the other about 5 years. But my husband sweft me off my feet. Since I married him, no man exists anymore. He has the key to my heart.

    As far as I’m concerned,it doesn’t matter who is older,once the two parties understand themselves and the woman is submissive to her man,that’s all that matters,I’m 6 years older than my husband,he acts like he’s 10 years older than me and I give him all the respect he deserves and will continue to do that,we’ve been together for 8 years now,no one can stop people that are destined to be together. My Uncle is 62 and the wife is 63 years,they’ve been together for donkey years and living very happy.There are lots of men in Nigeria whose wives are older than them and they are living happy,but you never get to know until you are told.Age has got nothing to do with being submissive or loyal,understanding is all that matters
