Blah, blah, blah, put me on your ignore list, or don't read this thread.

Many retirees are married to someone of a different age. This may be if interest to them. It is to me.

Many good benefits for a slightly younger one that stays in good shape and active.
I just hope I can keep up with the challenge and her needs.

Very good benefits.
My husband is slightly younger than me. Good benefits for me too, LOL. Several of my friends with much older husbands are now their caregivers. Works both ways. Not really something one thinks about when falling in love.

Yeah... but real Chicago Pizza is the best in the world.

I couldn't live in Milwaukee or anywhere north of where I am.

I once landed in Milwaukee April 15th in the middle of a blizzard.

Ignore lists are pointless, I'm capable of ignoring people or posts all on my own, lol. A discussion of age differences in a relationship is a bit more interesting than just a general 'life is full of surprises' kind of statement, don't you think!

My wife is four years older than me. I'm hoping neither one of us ends up taking care of the other. Since women typically live longer than men, I'm hoping neither one of us outlives the other, by very much.

She may feel differently

Happily married? Yes. Happy he's still living in Illinois? No.

Especially in the winter, when I send him pictures of Southern California while he's butt deep in snow

Had to ask each one how the heck did you end up with a 3-5 yo old at your age and everyone of them had a story about the younger 2nd or 3rd wife.

Being newly divorced I decided then I would not date anyone 8 years or more younger but more importantly anyone who could still reproduce.

Worse than having a wife 10 years younger is having a kid that's 50 years younger.

Hell no.
66 here, with a 4 and 14 y/o, Besides retiring at 33, moving to Peru, marrying my beautiful young wife, it's one of my better decisions. The only major decisions I have left are "quiting smoking" and "Cremation or Burial" and I have a 50/50 chance of getting those right too!
