What do you think?

Do you think age matters in a relationship? Friends and lovers? Personally, I don't think so. Friends, why should it matter? i'm friends with plenty of adults that are 30+ years. i can just somehow get along with them. Lovers, also why should it matter. If they are like 10-1 year apart, it's fine. My aunt and uncle are 6 years apart and they still love each other. A few of my friends are dating guys in college and they are happy as ever. What do you guys think?

If both are over 18 that's fine. But problems can arise when one is under 18 and the other is older than 18. It's one thing for a 20 year old to date a 30 year old; it's an entirely different matter for a 13 year old to date a 23 year old.

Depends on how old you are. 10 years makes a difference if your 17 or younger. Example: a 14 year old dating a 24 year old is NOT okay. That just wouldn't be right. However, marriage is different. And when your older your more mature and know how to make smart decisions. as for having older friends, that is absolutely okay, a bit odd, but okay.

Its okay as long as you are not underage and the guy is 18+ because that is illegal and if you get caught he could serve some jail time. other than that.. its perfectly fine. me and my boyfriend have been together 3 months and hes 3 years older than me. i go for the older guys. theyre more respectful and more fun to be around.

In friendship age doesn't matter but in love it matters. If a girl is 14 and guy is 18,19,20 that's not right. Of course when she is 18 and he is 22,23,24 it won't mater as much because the age difference compared to the amount of time the person has been alive. When your 56 what difference does four or five years make? On the other hand if your a teen you don't need to be doing that kind of thing because 4 years is such a big part of your life. Okay that's my soap box for the day.

I think age shouldnt matter. back in Midevil Times 17 year olds were allowed to date 20+ year olds. it should be allowed now. Society is just screwed up. it shouldnt matter to be friends with older people.

I think you can be friends with anyone of any age, but I don't think you should date or marry anyone that's 5 years older than you are. :)

My mom is engaged to someone like 9 years older than her. I think once you're an adult, age doesn't really matter in a relationship. But if they were like 9 and 18 or something.. That's pretty weird. So age could matter when you're younger. As for friendships, I don't think age matters much.

The older u get the less it matters. Take a 30yr old man dating a 20 year old woman, a decade ago he was twice her age, but now he's only a third older. In 20 years he'll b a fifth and if they live to be 100 and 90 there's practically no difference. The older get a headstart but the younger catch up.
