Nine Years Difference....I used to think that it was not a big deal, that my girlfriend/wife was nine years younger than me. Nearly everyone insisted it was not a big age gap. Not everyone, after all, could be like my parents and marry someone the exact same age, right?!
Then, after we got married it seems, the comments started.... listening to my music in the car ****station changes**** and wife saying "turn that garbage off". She absolutely HATES 70's music!!! This kills me because I was nothing but gracious about letting her play her 90's country in the car all the time when we were dating. This is one of the reasons she loved me, or so she says. And yet she can't even bring herself to appreciate 70's rock.
There are other issues, such as immaturity, that really cause me to wonder sometimes if I shouldn't have married someone more my own age? Or maybe she's just giving her age group a bad name???
