When age difference actually matters in a relationship
29 June 2016, 21:09
Nairobi - Age should not really interfere with your
relationship. It actually should not matter but the thing is, there are a
couple of things that when you are rushing into a relationship you forget
Picture this, an older man who already has
had a family and a young lady. Or a very old lady whose biological clock is
ticking but the young man is not ready for the relationship to get that
serious. Do you know the reason that Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger (not
saying she is an old lady ) broke up? She was ready, he was not. Same thing
happens with such unbalanced couples unless you both come together with no one
changing their mind that you will not have children. If one of you does; it
will come up and destabilize the relationship.
has the baggage?
If none of you do, perfect because in such
relationships what happens is that one of the parties is trying again and if
they are not- what is with them that they have never settled all this time?
Those are the questions people ask.
Will you be able to handle your partner’s
baggage because your relationship will not work as simply as for most couples.
What am I even saying? It is not that big of a deal come to think of it. People
are siring children left and right these days so it will not be that big an
issue. The only problem you have is why they haven’t ever settled.
insecurity issues ever crop up?
If you are planning on being a long term
couple you need to have that conversation.
It is very hard t be in a relationship with a person you have to keep
reassuring-are you ready for that? It goes both ways by the way, not just for
the aging one, the younger one may at times feel out of place as well with
their partner’s mature associates.
