Dating a guy 14 years older than me
From my hiding place behind the door, I was frozen with revulsion and disbelief.
Not only at my husband’s betrayal — but because our marriage was nothing like the one he had described in such prurient detail.
That said; the positives of marrying someone older have been rapidly lost in a world where “young love” is often touted as the best kind. You’ll always be the “young one.”After all, she’s old, too.
And by that, I don’t mean “you won’t ever have financial trouble,” rather, when you do have issues, he’ll probably be stable enough from maturity and that he won’t freak out.
Sometimes a significant age gap makes a relationship impossible.Every boy has pined for an older woman before, and every girl has pined for an older man before.It’s your classic teenage fantasy; whether it’s a celebrity crush, or maybe one of your teachers.The girls were shocked at my reaction to the media “scandal”, telling me “don’t become like him, Claud. The two girls made it sound like it was so repulsive to think of dating a ‘cougar’, to think of falling in love with somebody.In some ways they might just be thinking practically: a 10 year age difference in a marriage, according to Emory University, Atlanta, has a 39 per cent chance of ending in a divorce.
