P (age 5): “How old is Grammy?”
P: “How old is Grandpop?”
P: “Grammy is bigger than Grandpop?!”
G (age 7, know it all): They love each other. That’s all that matters.
We’re talking 6 months here, people.
What is it with little girls (especially) desiring that the man in a relationship should be older? Why is that such a big deal? Are little boys obsessed with this as well?
I’m sure, as a child, I probably assumed that men should be older than the women they married, but I don’t think I lost much sleep over it. In fact, I think I married a younger man (my ex-husband didn’t have a birth certificate, so we really don’t know – really long story about being born in a village.) If I had any age difference issues I suppose I got over them.
All my life I have preferred older men, yet, here in my forties, I think I would be cool with a younger man, if that were meant to be. Not too young, mind you, I have no desire to be with a man who has a significantly smaller amount of life experience than me; that’s bound to turn out bad.
But a little bit younger wouldn’t be too bad – I’d just make sure not to mention his age to my kids…

Haha, that has come up in our family too! I am a whooping six months older than my husband and it might as well be 100. Funny thing is that it is never brought up as anything but fact. Maybe somewhere in our DNA we translate older and taller into provision and protection?! Praying you’re having a great day!

Thank you! 🙂 And I’m glad we are not the only ones “struggling” with this.
