Does Age Really Matter in Relationships? Generally, it doesnt. A couple can have a strong relationship as long as they love, respect and care for each other. Having a partner, who is a few years older than you, is considered normal but when the age gap is too wide then it may look unconventional.
Is an age gap in a relationship a problem?
Over time, in couples with a huge age gap, the marital bliss declines compared to those who are married to spouses who are similar in age. Many age gap relationship problems arise just because the time-zones in which individuals have been raised are different. The age difference does affect the relationship.
Is it OK to have a 15 year age gap?
Romantic couples with a large age gap often raise eyebrows. Studies have found partners with more than a 10-year gap in age experience social disapproval. But when it comes to our own relationships, both men and women prefer someone their own age, but are open to someone 10-15 years their junior or senior.
