17 Year Difference

I have to say, I recently saw a story about the Olsen twin dating a man who is 17 years older than her and all kinds of people are shaking their heads in judgement. WTF!!!!! Who's business is it anyways!!!

This struck a nerve with me because I am in the same boat, I am 25 years old and my husband is 42 and we've been together since I was 19. My mother still doesn't like him but at least my father is nice to him, civil, even friendly. Who's ******* business is it!! MINE! Anyone else in the same boat, unsupportive mother, constantly making snarky comments, rooting for your marriage to fail?? What kind of crap is that, she's supposed to be my MOTHER!!! My husband has never hit me, been abusive or unloving, if anything he's been way more loving and supportive than I deserve.

We have 5 kids between us, (4 are his 1 is mine) from previous marriages. I have never met anyone or been with anyone who understands me and loves me so unconditionally accepting me for me, never tried to change what or who I am, always been supportive, let me be me and I love him for him, he's amazing and I wouldn't change a thing about him. It's a real shame when people can't look past the age difference and see that there's 2 people there who love each other through thick and thin.

Dear Judgmental ******** of the World,
Go **** yourselves!! Don't go judging what you don't know!!

I am 28 and my boyfriend is 42 and we have been together 4 years. He has 2 children from a previous marriage that are both in their teens. I have not been there and done that and i knew when we met and got to know each other he said never never again cos he had a nasty divorce and was basically with the wrong person for 20 years and only stayed with her as she fell pregnant within 6 months of dating so they just worked at it. but he met me after they separated after another row and love just hit him right between the eyes. So it completely changes What u want in life. i was 23 at the time and didn't want children myself or wanted to ever get married through growing up in a broken big family myself, where my mum and dad got divorced as did my aunts uncles and even my gran and grandad..... But over time, love has grown so much ( and he's my longest relationship) that I can't image life without him and i now actually would love to be his wife. and he would be marrying me through love, not cos he had kids with me and it was the done thing to do. he wants this too now and even spoke about children as he knows one day i will want them and leaat this time he would be having a baby cos its planned and through love, not sex and trying to accept it. People will always say he's too old for you or he will start looking old soon or he won't be able to look after a baby at his age or cope with it, but he's in good shape, best body and fitness I've seen compared to my previous relationships with people my own age and younger ! And he's young in his mind . the male version of me. people think its purely about just having that stability with older guys for financial reasons or cos they are more wise and settled and not after partying and cheating on you and tes it is those things but they are just bonus. it's purely about cos we connect. We talk and behave like we are the same age and enjoy the same hobbies so age doesn't really matter whatsoever. It's just a number literally that goes up every year but it doesn't mean your mind gets older. Yeh your body does but I can say at 42 he's still as sexy as he was at 38 and the sex is just as good and as often. Like the above comment said stuff everyone else, they are making you happy if you had to listen and follow everything they said. It wouldn't make you , you and feel alive and in control. It riles me when there is always some debate about this. I only deal with logic in life and its pretty simple to work out. You love them and they love you. End of discussion.
