femmenoir agony auntIt's not a huge age gap, because you're in your 20s.

If you love each other then so be it. Marry him.

It's the two of you who must live together and if you know he's the right man for you, then who really cares what others think and say.


You just live your life and do what's best for you and he.

Be strong, be confident, be happy and stop worrying.

All the best.

CindyCares agony aunt Why would you lose the love of your life, - just because your mom and siblings do not like his age ?? If that's the only fault they can find in him... oh come on, I understand being a good daughter and sister, and also taking on board the opinion of people who love you- but that's ridicolous. If he is really so loving caring good etc. as you say, would you really let him go because your family says he's not the right age ??

Anyway- yes, 10 years is a bit of an age gap, but not a huge one. If you were 17 and he 27, I'd tell you let him be, but 10 years later ,..not a big deal, you may very well be on the very same wavelength in emotional maturity, life experience etc.

aunt honesty agony auntNo the age gap does not matter as you are both adults and therefore it is up to the both off you how you want to spend your life. I don't think ten years is to much when you are both old enough to know what use want. Don't listen to your family, am sure they are wanting what is best for you, but only you can decide who you want to marry.
