I am a 38 year old woman with a problem. My 21 year old boyfriend and I are in love, he wants to marry me, but, I am afraid that our age differences are against us. Other than our age difference, we are very compatible.
Do you think it is possible for a 17 year age split to work in a marriage?

Dear Undecided Bride to Be:
The short answer is YES, I think it is possible. I must say though, you WILL have your work cut out for you. I believe as long as he shares the same interests as you, you have a very good shot at making it.
Sure, people will stare, wonder if he is your son etc., but as long as you can handle the criticisms and the age difference doesn’t bother either one of you, I say Go For It!!! Good luck.
