24 + 42 = 18I am dating a man who is 18 years older than me; he is 42 and I am 24. We met at work as we work in different companies (sister companies from the same group) but on the same floor. He is been in the company since I joined, 3 years ago but he felt something towards me around a year go and last July he expressed his feelings. I never thought he is 42, I always thought he is late 30ies as he is very stylish and good looking and he never thought I am 24, he always tells me I sound and act much older and that I am different than those girls from my generation.
I like him a lot and now I do love him. He proposed and he always tells me you are my fiance so technically I am engaged.
He met my parents although my dad doesn't agree with this but he said "I will meet him as long as you insist". He still doesn't agree although he said that the man looks really decent and I love my dad a lot, I don't wanna loose my relation with the guy and I also want my parents to accept the idea and agree. I tried to let my 2 brothers meet him but they are as well against the idea. They told me do what you want but we don't think this is right.
Sometimes when I hear my dad's view on the matter and my brothers' comments I get really scared and confused. I feel totally lost.
Do you think it is ok to get married to a guy that older than me? And what shall i do to convince my parents and brothers?
