I just heard that a childhood friend and neighbor of mine was engaged to a guy I don't know. It's been a loooong time since I last saw her or even thought of her. What caught my attention was the fact that her fiance' is 20 YEARS OLDER THAN SHE IS!!!
I really wonder sometimes, how do people actually do this? it's not as if they knew each other for a long time and that they love each other to the point that they feel this difference isn't gonna affect them. I mean come on, you don't know this person, and there's a 20 year difference between you in EVERYTHING!! Oh well, I just wonder.
In my humble opinion, in the best situation, a man would be 3~7 years older than his wife. I know this is a very wide generalization, a lot of people are very happily married to people 15 years younger or older than thet are, and I know people who are very happy with their older wives. This is perfectly normal as no 2 people are alike, but in the "default setting" I suggest a difference of 3~7 years, the man being older.
What do you think?
