with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
While driving to work yesterday morning I heard about the former LOST actor (age: 51) who married a girl (age: 16). All together now: EWWWWW.
I mean, really. THIRTY-FIVE years apart in age? In the article it states that the girl’s father is younger than his new son-in-law. I can see why the husband is in for it (Duh) but why would a sixteen-year-old girl want to marry him? Why would her parents sign off on the marriage documents? HOW DID THEY EVEN MEET?
I’m locking my daughter in a tower. STAT.
The craziness of the story aside, I don’t think that people have to be the same age to be compatible. Back in the day I dated guys three to five years older than I was. A friend’s husband is seven years older than her and they have been married for ten years, with three kids, happily. I have family members who have an even greater age gap. But nowhere close to THIRTY-FIVE YEARS.
As for my husband and I, we are two years apart in age. Three school grades, as I skipped third grade. Yes, that’s right. I am older than my husband. I find it humorous to tell people that when I was in twelfth grade, he was in ninth grade. He’d rather I not mention that little detail.
How about you? What is your age difference?
