I like my current boyfriend, even though it has only been three months, because I feel safe, comfortable, and secure with him.When I dated guys my age, I had to pay for dinner, and concerts, and their lives.While she may have missed more years together if he had been younger, she treasured what time they had and would have done it all over again.So while I do not believe there is any biblical rule on the proper age gap to get married, I do think you have to look down the road, as you age together.So while I think most people are compatible within a smaller age range, I have met numerous couples like Ruth and Boaz that have proven this to be false.My own parents were 12 years apart, eventually requiring my mother to take care of my father until he died.You have to talk about having children, raising children, raising his or her children from another marriage, etc.Pray and ask for God’s confirmation and trust that this person is the right one for you, wrinkles, age spots and all.
HE SAID: Even though we often hear from non-believers about how much the Bible dictates rules for how we “have to live” or what it says we “can’t do,” there are many things God allows for us to determine for ourselves within the parameters and freedom He gives us.
It’s not weird to me now, but that hasn’t stopped people from giving us weird looks when we are together or affectionate in public.”—Krista, 25 Money Isn't An Issue “I am dating someone who is close to 20 years older than me and one major perk, if I’m being honest, is that he has money.
It’s not new money (or young money) where he wants to go out and blow it on stupid things; it’s the earned life he’s been creating for years. There’s very little fighting or problems that pop up.
I guess that’s because he looks really young still and has all of his hair. ”—Deborah, 34 We Have Nothing In Common “I’m 21 and he’s 33. He has a house, I live in an apartment near campus.
