20 year old dating 35 year old disgusting
I'd say, pray about it, seek Godly counsel, give the Lord time, and then act as He directs. I immediately said we couldn't see each other any more. We talked about this many times and here we are, 1 1/2yrs. I really think it is sick, but I would be keen to hear other opinions. Sheesh - some of you guys on this site should write a book on statistics because that's all you seem to ever quote!
Amen Dee, I have several examples of younger men marrying older women (15-25 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 differencewhen people are not hung up on age or concerned to please others age is never a differenceit 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) ...maybe because women chronically complain and men rarely complain Opinionated. If we lived by statistics, then faith shouldn't even factor in to our lives! We are extremely happy and both share an undying love for the Word and for the Lord.
In this year and age age is nothing but a number it has nothing to do with maturity.
I am a Christian woman, and totally celibate for years. If there is mutual love and respect, why wouldn't it be okay? I know of none at all that are the product of an older father, although I'm not saying there arn't any.
I can tell you life is short and uncertain and I would marry someone up to 10 yrs younger than Iyounger than that and I would enter the "mother/son" mental rhelm and that would get odd for me Only you can really answer that question. My big question is, is she like a mother figure or your best friend? That is were I think the real answer to your question lies. What is difficult to understand with this statement?
Moderator, please make sure that by "It isn't natural" you really don't mean, "I don't approve of this." Believe it or not, there IS a difference. If most people used common sense and wise counsel before getting married, as moderator suggests, there would be a whole lot fewer marriages happening, regardless of age.
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. I was the young woman who married a man in his 40's. Now it seems women are willing to marry man much younger sometimes as much as twenty years.
This topic has come up on numerous Christian sites. While it might be a lot of fun and all that but once they get older, their man will be much younger.
It is not wise to wed outside one's era, but that marriage is not automatically going to fail.
If you disagree with this, please do some research and tell if you find anything different. It takes a lot of guts ,patience and understanding to deal with these type marriages, years down the road. There is nothing in scripture that forbids someone from marrying much older or younger, for either a man or a woman.
I wish I knew what causes this evil thing to happen. God does caution us not to be yoked together with unbelievers. Whether or not it would be a good match should be a matter of prayer. By the way, the answers to questions 9, 18, & 22 on the dating & marriage quiz are incorrect. And as for procreating being a mandate, if that were an absolute, then infertility wouldn't exist and everyone would be commanded to marry.
18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Follow your bliss and God will show you HIS will in this, oh, and then do what HE says to do.
Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen, they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind. Our cultures are different and his maturity was amazing. Why is everyone talking about Down's Syndrome and children???
