    Me and my Fiance have a 15 year age gap and have been together for six years. Neither of us have been married before and when we do tie the knot in April 2018, he will be 40 and I will have just turned 26.

    I would love to hear from other Brides with an age gap!

    Congratulations :-)

    Not much of an age gap in the sense you're asking to hear about, but I'm 2 years (25 months to be precise) older than my OH. Seems to run in the family as my Mum is 2 years older than my Dad and brother is 2 years younger than his wife!!!

    Maybe 2 is a lucky number for you and your family Lindsay! :) Its cool that you all have the same situtation!

    How old were you both when you met Kirstie? Did you or other people have any issues with the age gap?

    Nice to meet you both! :)

    Congratulations!!!

    We have a gap of nearly 14 years, we got married last year on the 10 year anniversary of our first date.

    I'm 36, he's 50. So we were the same ages as you when we met.

    Age really is just a number.

    What was your wedding like Lesa? I see in your signature you got married in Monte Carlo, that sounds amazing! I would love to know all about it! What kind of dress did you have?

    We are planning to get married in Prague :)

    I totally agree that age is really just a number, some people freak about age gaps. I was almost 18 and my Fiance was 32 when we met and while my mother and father were understandably unsure, I told them to just wait until they saw us together. 6 years down the line they both love him and treat him like a son in law already. We have had nasty comments once or twice though, some people are so ignorant.

    Our wedding was the best day of my life!

    We got married in Camden, London. (Monte Carlo was the proposal).

    When we first got together there were a few comments but as soon as people got to know us as a couple then the gap doesn't matter.
    My mum (who passed away a few years ago) loved him, she told me once if I don't Marry him then she would!!!

    I have had a few people (from work, who don't know him) ask if the photo on my desk from the wedding is my dad, and where's my husband. But I boldly tell them, that "is" my husband, and they are the embarrassed ones.

    It's just occurred to me, I posted lots of photos from the wedding on the thread, but I never put any in my photos album on here!!!

    I'll add some.

    Hiya

    OH is 8 years older than me, I'm 29 and he's 37. (Neither of us look or feel like it though!).

    We will have been together for 7 years in a couple of week's time, and get married almost 3 years to the date we got engaged.

    My mum was a little cautious when I first told her about him, but I think it was more to do with the history of a previous relationship. 8 years is a bigger deal when you are 22 than 29 too. Nobody is bothered now, its only when I meet new people that they have any particular reaction, but if you saw us together you couldn't tell.

    There's nearly 7 years between me and my OH. We first met when he was 17 and I was 10! When we get married I'll be 31, he will be almost 38 and we'll have been together a little over 5 years.

    Ours isn't that big of a gap but even if it were bigger I wouldn't mind. Age is just a number :)

    Its so lovely to meet you all and to know my Steven and I are not the only ones!

    Leasa, I am so sorry! I got mixed up. I have had someone ask if he was my dad too, my guy was going for an x-ray and we were chatting with the other patients. While my Fiance was in the X-ray, the man who we had been talking to asked me if he was my dad and I proudly told him he was my Fiance. The man then looked embarassed. Its lovely that your mum loved him so much! :)

    Gosh FutureMrsW! Its amazing that you both met so young! It sounds like there is a story there, I would love to know if you care to share :)

    There is 9 years between my oh and I. We've never had any comments luckily.

    My manager is 15 years younger than his wife and I don't think I have ever met 2 people more in love than them!

    We live in an age where people are quick to judge or form an opinion and it drives me bonkers!! As long as you're happy, noone else matters. x

    Not too dramatic a tale really Celtic, my sister is 5 years older than me and he was in her group of friends at college. Once I was in my 20's we were all mutual friends but had other partners come and go and all that. One day we arranged to go out and with one thing and another OH (mine's a Steve too :) and I were the only ones to turn up - which worked out really well for us in the end! How did you both meet? x

    My OH is 14 years older than me. I'm 43 and he is 57. We have been together for 5 years, and he was still married to and living with his now ex wife when we got together (please don't judge - the marriage had been dead or years and it was for convenience that they were still living under the same roof)

    This is my 1st marriage but will be his 3rd and his last

    We got engaged in November last year and are planning to wed in November next year. Only just started planning, so its all a little scary right now.

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    Oh gosh ladies, I have just had a barrage of women all calling my Fiance a creep on a different wedding board :( Its upset me a bit, my guy is anything but.

    FutureMrsW - I think that sounds like fate coming into play! :) Thats a really nice way to meet.
    I had been hearing about him for a while because we had mutual friends and I really wanted to meet him, so I was walking with my ex one day in my old local town and he pointed out that that was the guy I had been hearing about, so I ran up and literally jumped in front of him and said hello, I think I scared him lol but I jumped into his life. It was an instant click.
    After that my ex was hanging out with some friends in the park and I was with him, my Steven was there and was talking to me while my ex totally was ignoring and being horrible to me. I ended up getting upset and the only guy who followed me was Steven - that told me he was different and we were friends for a while until I asked him out on Halloween. I am so glad I did!

    Oh MaxineP89, no judgement here! :D Third time lucky! It was a case of third time lucky for my Aunt too :D Are you getting married on the same day as you got engaged? It is scary, I am trying to get as much as I can decided before I have to officially have to start planning next year to make it less overwhelming. Have you decided anything for your wedding so far?

    Thank you all you lovely ladies! They were like wolves waiting to pounce on any bone they see. It is awesome that there are so many other age gap brides and the no-judgement has really been a nice thing. Perhaps we in the UK are more open-minded than those in the USA?

    Your support is invaluable to me <3 Thank you all again.

    My friend is getting married in May and they've got 15 year age gap with him being older.

    Best friend has age gap again with her man and being younger of the two by 8 years.

    We all clearly have a thing for older men!!!
