I had NEVER considered or imagined I would be drawn to someone so much older. Do I turn away what seems to be my perfect match because of the age gap? After politely playing 20 questions with Sue about my new boyfriend, I knew this was the one she was getting at.But I wasn’t some gold digger trying to claw at his cash account, or even a woman with daddy issues.
Considering the fact that he teases me mercilessly about my abundance of gray hair, I think it’s about time I get to talk up my great youth.My dad on the other hand never approved in the beginning and 4 years later still can't move on and accept it.We are planning a wedding and I feel like I shouldn't even have the people at my wedding come that never supported the relationship after these almost 4 years.You are concerned that a 15 year age difference may be a "terrible idea" or "setting yourself up for future failure." Are these irrational concerns, or is this your intuition trying to out-talk your infatuation?In my opinion, there is a lot more than just 15 years that separates you from your 42-year-old boyfriend.
