    I take it that you are a dude. For her she needs to lock it down because her window is closing.

    Things for you to look at is you are going to be prepared to have children in the next couple of years.

    But if this person makes you happy, and you can see yourself spending the rest of life with her why not

      I think she does want kids pretty soon too. Now, I wonder if it's me or the kids that she's interested in. Shit!!!

      Kids. Way stronger biological desire for that than finding someone to cohabitate with for 60 years.

      Because relationships can be complicated, especially as everything changes with time. You know, younger people may have different expectations and older ones, a bit different. So, does it work out well in the long term?

      6 years is not that much. I'd say two people 6 years apart are still from the same generation.

      6 years is not that much. Consider that women marrying 10+ years up is pretty 'normal'

      Also pretty dependant on your ages. 40-46 is much less difference than 20-26

    i think it’s question of whether you’re ready to get married not the age of your partner...

      We refers to whom? Brides are sold in Eastern Europe. One of my American friends chose to pay for a Cambodian virgin bride than marry an American, not that he married her because of money but because he didn't like the values of American women. Not sure which values you are referring to.

      you and I, you and a lot of europeans. People who for whom material things are no longer the top priority. you can buy whomever you want, but that’s a failure as a man...

      Would you marry a partner who is rich enough to get you rid of the Perl scripts or a partner who would chug along?

      And for the most part, they don’t use sunscreen, don’t do cosmetic treatments, and no makeup to cover it up. Just wham and you’ve got that sad, hollow, sagging man face. At least the ladies are more likely to take some degree of preventive measures. Age is a b*tch. Everyone wear sunscreen.

      Are you saying you’re... NOT a Chad? I don’t even know who you are anymore. This is too much. Just put the lipstick on and pretend to be him. Just for tonight.

    No. This is how it will go. Baby soon after marriage. She will go part time or quit. You will be single income and fully domesticated. You will be going to lots of baby parties where the other moms will be much hotter than your wife. Your lust levels will differ significantly. Some women do not age well, especially if they spend too much time in the sun.
    There is a reason most wives are younger than their husband. Tread carefully.

      I don't wanna cheat after marriage and satisfy all the list, before. Would you just move away from a woman you like just because of her age?
      May 8
    • New / Consultant time_pass
      I would not. But if she is the one for you, and you know it, then go for it. If you are just going along because she wants to get married and you are ambivalent, then think it through.

    Less than 10 years is not that big of a difference imo

    Reading your answers, I would say No. And if your partner is also reading, would recommend her a Big NO.

      You sound like a rejected girl. Just confirming.
      May 8
    • Microsoft / R&D pr~
      Ok. I should have been more polite. If you are confused, in dilemma, I would recommend move on. Settling down is more of a emotional dicision and most comes by heart. You know your answer yourself and I feel that are you trying to find reasons to justify it.
      My recommendation is go by your heart, that will be the best for both of you.

      My reaction was more based on your thought process in replies.

    I know quite a few people who have had really long successful marriages with the women being 6-10 years older. Go for it. Dont think about the age.

    Why did you tag FB, Google and... Expedia on this post?

      Uhh ok. But then why Expedia?
      May 8
    • Hotwire zyxwcba
      OP
      For no reason in particular. Random. Was thinking of whether to tag or not but did anyway. I guess, maybe because I think Googlers are intelligent and Fb folks are social. I work for Expedia so gives much variety of opinion.

      26 and 32 isn’t that bad, honestly

      but if she plans to have children she will probably rather go sooner than later, so i guess that would be on you

      Yeah that gap isn’t really a huge deal. Wife is 5 years younger than me.

    If she is 6 yr older, i would expect a shit load of experience in the of maturity level, a complementing nature to mine, and good financial standing.
