Age-gap in relationship and marriage

Age difference in a relationship is simply taking into consideration the ages of both partners in a relationship. In relationships/marriages, many people dispute if age should really be taken into consideration. Why want to stop loving your heart desire just because he or she is 10, 20, or 30 years older than you? Should it matter that you are both 20 and feel ripe to tie the knot together?

What about when the relationship or marriage does not work out; is there an acceptable “age” for divorce? Although this may be personal issues to which there’s no wrong or right answer but one can still garner some wisdom from studies and other people’s experiences.

Society myths about age difference in a relationship

The society at large holds a negative impression regarding age differences in a relationship which makes people be obsessive with it. And, that is why individuals start developing feelings for people outside their age brackets as individuals think their feelings are wrong. If you both are on the same level of maturity, never allow the attached age number impede your decision. Just like spouses who are the same age, if you are not on the same page, things will certainly appear difficult.

Also, society expects all individuals to age and develop at the same rate not just judging dating outside our ages. It is often said that “with age comes maturity”, which is a mere myth. We experience maturity after several experiences we came across in life as you don’t just automatically become mature on your 25th birthday. Maturity can occur at a very young age, or maybe, you never actually mature.

Furthermore, society makes us feel that we have lived and are continuing to live incorrectly if we haven’t discovered ourselves by our mid-twenties. We all have several plans to achieve a certain thing by a certain age, but the reverse might be the case as we tend not to achieve those goals at that particular time.

Most people do say, “Act your age.” As we all are expected to leave behind our childish behaviors at our grade 12 classes and be grown up “adults.” That is not the case for everyone, though, because we all are different human beings with our natural paths.

Age difference in a relationship among couples

A study by the New York Post deduced that the bigger the age difference, the shorter the marriage. Its dispute here is that couples from different generations have several values and cultural reference points, opposite choices in music/film, very different approaches to their sex life, and very different sets of pals. The article concluded that spouses with a 20-year age difference are 95% more likely to divorce than a spouse with only a one-year age gap.

Does the age difference in marriage bring about divorce?

According to the Institute for Family Studies Blog, they dispute that the longer you wait to tie the knot, the better; but not too long. The blog deduced that young couples under the age of 25 stand a higher chance of experiencing divorce than couples who married in their late twenties.
