Age gap marriages.

I'm thinking of Boris & his bride.

When she's the age he is now, she'll still be in her prime & he'll be almost 80.

Age gap marriages - Do they work?

Re: Age gap marriages.

It depends on how old they are mentally I think. I don't know the pair, obviously, but I think they are well matched - and she strikes me as being the more mature one (not a slight on Boris, by the way) but I can see her reining him in if he gets too carried away with his....his....erm.....affable nature

Generally I think large age gaps work if they have things in common and aren't too stuck in their own ways.

When my late cousin was 19 she married a man of 42 - everyone said it wouldn't last - but it did. They were very happy.

Re: Age gap marriages.

I am 9.5 years older than my wife and we have been married for 54 years. It was quite a big gap when we were married but it seems to be closer now. Not that I am getting any younger if you know what I mean.

Re: Age gap marriages.

Well ours has certainly worked. I'm 68 and my wife Annie is 57. I was 34 and she was 23 when we got together. We only remember one person who made a grubby comment about the age difference They quickly became very familiar with the middle fingers on our right hands.
