As long as it's legal, I don't care how old two people in a relationship are.

I mean, I couldn't be with someone old enough to be my dad or grandpa or anything but that's my opinion.

Quoting Babiee Miller:" I understand that parents or friends o family disapprove of there kids or whatever being 16 and dating ... [snip!] ... saying two adults of different ages cannot be together. I could see if someone was 14 and dating some who is 26 that is wrong, "

I think after the 18 mark, it shouldn't matter on age if they are older. I mean if there 16 with a 20+ year old, then just be careful with the age gap, but if its legit and they are happy, then who cares on age. My parents are 14 years apart.
When I was 17, I dated a 26 year old.
When I was 18, I met my husband who was 25 at the time.

I see nothing wrong with people having a relationship with someone who is older than them. My dad was in his early thirties when he married my mum and she was 20. As long as both parties are of age, it really shouldn't matter.

I am thinking the same thing, like I could see if you were illegal age and dating someone who was legal. like someone who is under the age of 18 should not be dating someone in their thirties for one it is frowned upon and two they think dfferent. that thirty year old might have kids and a job ad the 15 year old culd be living with her mom n in school. where was someone who is me and I am 21 years of ge ad he is 32 we have oiur dfferences sure why not were still happy I am a good mom figure to their boys and we are pregnant with my first nd his fourth due june :)

This is the same age difference between DH and me. The people close to us know and accept that we get along great, really love each other, and truly are compatable. If we're talking strangers or someone insignificant in my life, I hardly notice or pay attention. I made sure before I got commited that it wouldn't bother me, b/c I couldn't live with an insecurity like that. I honestly don't see that much reaction/critisism when we go out. Or maybe cuz I'm ignoring it? ; )
