People say to him, “But what if she can’t have children?” Or, “What if you have to take care of her when she’s older?
I am 41 and my bf is 57 going to be 58 in few months..... But i told my parents they said ok you have my blessings...a week later they acted a fool. Just make sure you are ready for emotional and mental stress ok ? I didnt want to, but after a while, you see your parents true colors and see if they really care about your happiness Remember: Those who mind, dont matter and those who dont mind, matter Well handle it carefully..
Also note that this was not because I had some notion that we would end up together long-term, but rather because I was embarrassed to be seen in public with him because of our age difference. At the time, I thought that people would judge us and stare, or even worse, someone might mistake him for my son.
In reality, strangers hardly know there is much of an age difference between us, and they're almost certainly unaware that the difference is about 12.5 years — an age gap that is taboo in our culture.
It amazes me that even as the world seems to be progressing and we're now openly embracing many life choices, most of us still aren't comfortable with age differences in relationships.
Ultimately, my boyfriend and I have concluded that our love is too deep, intense, and “once-in-a-lifetime” to let it go.
