What is the age gap between you and your partner?

Had a conversation with a friend about how age gaps seem far more rare these days, compared to in the past. People mainly seem to be marrying people within a couple of years of their age. Purely anecdotal. Just made me curious!

Year and a half.

While I have no issue with consenting adults doing what they like, I've always wanted a partner reasonably close in age so we can go through the stages of life together.

What’s funny is DH and I got married at 25. My brother is also the same age as his fiancée and they are getting married this year at 25.

Apparently it’s a good age for a wedding in our family grin

DH is 15y older.

3 months. I was always more comfortable with same age/same life stage.
