17 dating 37 year old
I find his age of 19 to be more of a concern than the age difference.
If he were 30 and you 49, then he would be an adult with likely enough life experiences, personally and professionally, to know what he wants in a life partner. I would enjoy the moment with him as he is with you.
I can't believe the ways I've learned the things I know about mself. Back in the day, people married for life as teenagers.
I would be afraid of taking her away from her youth. If he's ready and understands how you feel and you openly express that, I don't see why it would be a problem.
Having her lose the relationship experiences that we all have as we grow older. Incidentally, our relationship didn't end because of the age difference.
And then there’s also the concern about one’s looks.
One woman, who is married to a man 14 years younger, said the only time she feels threatened by her age is when she looks in the mirror.
