If you believe in your relationship, you believe that you are making the right choice and doing the right thing for yourself, then approaching your parents will tough, but manageable.
They may not like it, but they are more concerned for their baby - you.
Data seem to support that idea: A 2003 AARP survey of about 3,500 single men and women ages 40 to 69 found about 66 percent of men want to date younger women and 34 percent of women want to date younger men.
EXPERTS SAY THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO FLIRT Celebrities like actor and director Mel Gibson, whose partner Rosalind Ross is 35 years his junior, and director Sam Taylor-Johnson, whose husband, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is 24 years younger than her, apparently agree with that notion.
If you are wishy-washy at all about itn then you may be in for a storm. Then whatever anyone says (including your parents) doesn't matter. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY what YOU think about what they think. You are worried about what's going to happen, you are dreading breaking the news... If they don't like it will it tear you apart inside?
People will say bad things and people will say good things. you are absolutely right about being confident in what i'm doing, and i DO believe in what i am doing with him. There really is no way you can know what they will think... Will it tear apart the relationship you believe in?
That they may explode, that they may just adore it. You are in a relationship with your guy, you feel it's the right thing to do, you are not in a relationship with your parents.That said; the positives of marrying someone older have been rapidly lost in a world where “young love” is often touted as the best kind. You’ll always be the “young one.”After all, she’s old, too.And by that, I don’t mean “you won’t ever have financial trouble,” rather, when you do have issues, he’ll probably be stable enough from maturity and that he won’t freak out.It's not at all that i fell in love with the wrong person, because i don't feel he is the wrong person at all, our only "problem" if any in our relationship is the age gap. As a dad, seeing that my daughter brings home a 40 (almost) year old guy... How important is the statement "age is just a number" to you?His parents know about us and they like me, but i know it will be a big issue with my parents. Because you are going to have to solidify your belief in that statement to sell it to your parents.
