Does Age Matter in Relationships?

Age is just a number but love is eternal. No matter the difference in colour, language, region or religion, two people can live together as long as they have a selfless love for each other. But what if the difference is their age? Can two people with a substantial age gap live together? Will their relationship stand the test of time?

    Gee! I'm starting to doubt myself after reading these comments. I was always of the opinion that a man would never be interested in an older woman (one that is much older) mainly due to the physical changes that occur with ageing. On an emotional level I can see a younger man with an older woman, especially when they enjoy similar activities and share similar opinions but physically? I have always thought it a bonus for a woman to have a younger man but not the other way around. When I constantly hear comments such as Age is only a number I immediately think it's just a term that men use to get a woman's interest. Comments please. Maybe I have been wrong all along.

    Age is just a number I am 16 years older than my husband and we have been married for 37 years. Cougar married her toy boy and we are still very happy. Lol Love, respect and being each other’s best friend is what we have.

    Well alruistically it should not matter But in reality a largish age difference will matter. Some say a person's life changes markedly about every 10 years. So possibly if the age difference is around that , problems may arise. But real love is a powerful phenomenon so good luck to all those who love whatever the difference.

    No, I am 11 years older than my wife and it has never been an issue, I think that we both forgot about it within the first week of our relationship. As others have said, it is about your attitude towards each other and your shared experience through life and family.

    Sometimes life experiences, shared experiences or values cover the age gap and build compatibility.

    If age matters I am confused. My first wife was 26 years older than me. We were together for over 20 years. My second wife is 14 years older than me. I have been like most couples happy and not too happy.
