A Few Challenges Now..My husband & I just celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. When we got married, I was almost 19 & he was 35. I was young with a great figure, he was strong and quite a babe ;) Now, we still have a pretty strong relationship,but I am seeing some challenges that I never anticipated.
Most of the time the age difference is not a problem at all. He is very young at heart, still in very good health and quite handsome with his graying hair. Now, we seem to be more separated in our age groups. He is of retirement age, is ready to slow down. When we spend time with friends, they are in his age category, not mine.
I am in my mid-forties, trying to keep my youth and looks, covering my gray! lol. I am needing more of his attention and he doesn't seem to have the need to give it so much.
I think sometimes of what it will be like in 10 years. He will be 73, I will be 56. I have to consider that I will probably be his care-giver someday. That's very sad to think about. I have to realize that, if our ages progress naturally, I will be without him someday. He has good genetics. His grandmother lived into her 90's and his mother is still living at 89.
I suppose these are good reasons to enjoy life while we can, love each other fully and never forget to say 'I love you' at the end of each day.
