When age difference actually matters in a relationship

29 June 2016, 21:09 Shakila Alivitsa

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 about.

Family planning

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.

Who 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.

Will 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.
