Moderator - Not a good idea as that isn't natural.
To each his own. Some like 'em old, some like 'em young, and some like 'em the same age- whatever floats your boat. Now having children could be another issue, for may be more difficult for an older woman to go through a pregancy than for a younger and woman. This topic has come up on numerous Christian sites.
Is there anything in the Word of God that says it sinful? Are there any verses that say it is permitted but not necessarily beneficial? It is fine for people to have opinions in this area, but that is all they are, an opinion. Some consider themselves the age police, but as they have no Scriptural ground to stand on, they need to cease trying to impose their own defintions of norms on others.
I'd say, pray about it, seek Godly counsel, give the Lord time, and then act as He directs. Amen Dee, I have several examples of younger men marrying older women year age difference who married, had children, and are still happily married 40 years later 87yo wife and her now 49yo husband I've found age is a difference when one has to ask if age is a difference when people are not hung up on age or concerned to please others age is never a difference it is interesting to note young women who marry older men usually complaining 20 years later with their "old husbands" I have yet to see this happen with men complaining about their "old wives It says in Colossians: Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen, they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind.
Two years ago I met a wonderful man in Turkey. He was a godly, funny warm and wise. Our cultures are different and his maturity was amazing. I thought he was around 35 yrs. He thought I was about I eventually saw his ID card.
I was shocked to find out he was I immediately said we couldn't see each other any more. He couldn't understand why. He said he knew that I was to be his wife. I was his first girlfriend and first love. We have not married as this gives you time to separate infatuation from real love.
He is kindness itself. He has no interest in using me for a visa in case you are wondering and I am not rich. I was the young woman who married a man in his 40's. But it is getting worse now, by the day. It was good for a long time,though. It will backfire in the longrun.
Stop it before it gets out of hand. It really depends on what they want.
In this year and age age is nothing but a number it has nothing to do with maturity. I can not see being 14 and 18 or round about that age.
If it is more than 20 years It's a big decision. People can not always let wht others think or say hinder what could truely be a blessing in this age. It is no different than a 40 year old man and a 20 year old woman. I know the ups and downs in this cause I am currently experiancing the same age differance minus a several months to But I do not want to marry him.
Our companionship is enough at the moment! In the Old times in Mexico and other countries girls married man who were much older. This was due to the believe that the man would be well established and could take care of his wife. Now it seems women are willing to marry man much younger sometimes as much as twenty years.
While it might be a lot of fun and all that but once they get older, their man will be much younger. Troubles begin when jealousy comes into the picture. And most of the times it does. No ones seems to care what happens in the future but I think before they marry someone very much younger they should consider even the children when they start growing up and you cannot do much with them.
But I see nothing wrong with age. I am 38 and I had a baby last year and he was normal and his father is 18 years younger than me we have been together 2 years SEE it can work out. The woman writes to everyone telling of the marraige in his name not hers and yet he does not admit it to family memebers, takes off his ring while on net-cam etc I really think it is sick, but I would be keen to hear other opinions.
Perhaps I should just butt out! Sheesh - some of you guys on this site should write a book on statistics because "How to marry a 40ish old woman in 90 days" all you seem to ever quote!
If we lived by statistics, then faith shouldn't even factor in to our lives! Hear me out everyone: Remember Sarah and Abraham? Hello and God Bless each of you for your faith and devotion to the Lord We are extremely happy and both share an undying love for the Word and for the Lord.
While I admit that the age difference does add some challenges to our lives, I have finally found someone with the wisdom and spiritual maturity to put up with me. My wife and I both have had children from previous marriages and the question of procreation is no longer valid however the love that we share is deeper and more spiritually and emotionally intimate than either of us have had before. Same thing with me and the apple juice. Why is everyone talking about Down's Syndrome and children???
And why isn't it natural? If they were 10 years apart, it wouldn't be a big deal, would it? I am a Christian woman, and totally celibate for years. I think it is indeed fine for a younger man, even if he's half her age, to date a much older woman. I'm a normal person, with normal attractions. This is great, especially in today's age. If there is mutual love and respect, why wouldn't it be okay? I work with Downs Syndrome adults. I know of none at all that are the product of an older father, although I'm not saying there arn't any.
I know of one 17 year old mother of a Downs baby. There are different kinds of Downs Syndrome where it is not always the same chromozome that is affected. This might be the reason for there being no hard and fast rule.
The same information is on web sites of organizations dealing with Down's Syndrome. If you disagree with this, please do some research and tell if you find anything different. It's ot only older mothers. I wish I knew what causes this evil thing to happen. Not a good idea. In a few more years you may regret your decision. It takes a lot of guts ,patience and understanding to deal with these type marriages, years down the road. Been there, done that. When older women have children, there is an increased chance of Downs Syndrom and hence mental retardation.
But the same is not the case with older men fathering children. Would the moderator define what is natural then? I have friends where he is 26 and she is mid 50's and God put them together. There is nothing in scripture that forbids someone from marrying much older or younger, for either a man How to marry a 40ish old woman in 90 days a woman.
God does caution us not to be yoked together with unbelievers. So, yes, according to God, it is OK.
Whether or not it would be a good match should be a matter of prayer. I guess that is what most people are trying to say by "wise", "natural" and so forth. By the way, recently we have met a wonderful couple at the church we attend. They have an obvious age difference. She is crippled with arthritis, but one of the most joyful people you'll ever meet.
He is much younger and treats her like a queen. They are both always happy and joyful. A Christian may divorce for another reason besides adultery.
