Dating a man 20 years younger
I didn’t plan on pursuing this kind of relationship when I was in my 20s.
I wasn’t a gold-digger out looking for an easy marriage and quick buck.
More often than not, the differences between younger women and older men are too vast for the relationships to survive. When I started dating my husband, I was 28 and he was 48.
He was divorced with an ex-wife his same age and 18- and 16-year-old sons.
They were the best men at our wedding and hugged us and congratulated us when we told them we were expecting our first child together.
Today, they are amazing big brothers who are adored by my sons.
We realized we were different than common portrayals of May–December relationships, and we didn’t have to live up to any stereotype.Bob’s mother, an 80-year-old devout Catholic who struggled deeply with her son’s divorce, participated in our wedding and cried when we showed her our son’s first sonogram picture.The grace and acceptance with which our families approached our decisions allowed our wedding and the birth of our babies to be truly joyous occasions with little drama or conflict.You always have the choice to experience our sites without personalized advertising based on your web browsing activity by visiting the DAA’s Consumer Choice page, the NAI's website, and/or the EU online choices page, from each of your browsers or devices.To avoid personalized advertising based on your mobile app activity, you can install the DAA’s App Choices app here.
