QOTD 2/21

By the way, if anyone has a good QOTD idea, please feel free to post it before me whatever day you'd like Smile

What is the age difference between you and your DH/SO? Has this ever been as issue?

Hubby is 4.5 years older than me. We met when I was in my late 20s and him in his early 30s so it wasn't really a big deal. Had it been 10 years sooner it probably wouldn't have ended so well. Blum 3

My DH is 3 years younger than I am Blum 3 We first met when I was 21 and I didn't want to date him LOL But he made me fall in love with him Smile People never really say anything about me looking older, supposedly I look younger anyway. His ex had something to say about it when we first got together though. Hah.

My DH is 3 1/2 years older than me which isn't very much, but we met right before I turned 17 so it was a HUGE deal at the time - especially to my parents. Once he turned 21 and I wasn't close, it was a bit challenging because his friends wanted to go out and I couldn't, but we made it work obviously and were even married for a over a year before I turned 21 (at which point the "small" age difference didn't matter anymore). Sounds silly but when you are underage and your spouse isn't, it's surprising how often the issue comes up. Now almost 10 years later, it's funny to think about.

Hahaha.. reminds me of me and my DH.. but then again he wasn't a big partier/drinker. So it was ok and I pretty much ended my partying days when I met him. Before then, I was hardly ever home Thursday-Saturday.

DH is only 18 months older than me, his best friend and I grew up together, so we had known each other for a long time before we started seeing each other. We had only been together about 3 months and we were engaged, we started dating in April, were engaged in July, and married in June the next year. 12 years later, we're still together!!

Dh is 3 years younger than me. It's weird thinking he was a freshman when I graduated. It works because he's always wanted to settle down and never once touched alcohol so no urge to party. His cousin was born the same day as him and he's still partying lol. I will always have a designated driver

DH is 2 1/2 years older than me. He seems to think that that make him have so much more life experience than me. Whatever!

I am one year and four days older. Those are always the worst four days!!! He teases me a ton. The very worst was when I turned 30 and he was still 28 for four days. Ugh!!!! Smile

I always thought I'd marry someone older because I'm just generally drawn to older people. Most of my friends are 5 to 10 years older than me. But we just work, I guess. Ten years this summer, so something must be going right!

DH is eight years older. We started talking when I was 17 online, and met in person shortly after I turned 19. It hasn't really been an issue. DH had already gotten his partying done with, and I have just never had an interest in it much.

DH is 7 months older than me. We met in 10th grade and dated for like a month and I looked him up on FB when I was going through a divorce with my first husband...just to see what he was up too. I used to think about him ALL THE TIME. My best friend always joked on me that I was meant to be with him and I needed to find him. Well, I did find him...and he and I met at his moms house for him to change my headlight. He kissed me and I was DONE. As of yesterday, we have been together 3 years.

DH is 3 years older than me. Not a big deal at all Smile
We went to the same church during high school. Obviously THEN it would have been weird for a 15 year old girl to be with an 18 year old boy (at least for me, I know sometimes that happens and I have nothing against it, but it would have been odd for me personally). By the time I was 19 and he was 21, we actually got to know each other rather than just as acquaintances from church. We started dating when I was 19, dated for 2 months, got engaged, and got married 5 months later, 2 days before I turned 20.
