10/22/2020 – Today’s Question of the Day

Is there an age difference between you and your spouse? By how much?

How do you think the age difference has affected (if at all) your marriage bed?

California King Asked on October 22, 2020 in Question of the Day.

I am three years older than DW. We have not noticed anything where the age difference has had any direct impact in the MB. Our challenges are from age-related creaks and groans from getting older!

    My DH is 13 years older than me.

    Heck yeah it’s had an impact on our marriage bed!

    He’s old and wise, and he will always refer to me as his hot young wife, LoL!

     

    Age plays a factor in performance for all involved, but there’s vit V and trt, so we always make the best of things!

    And menopause hasn’t killed my libido like you’d think it was (trt is good for women as well, wink/wink) .

     

    I married him, age difference isn’t a factor, because HE is my love.

      Zelda is half a year older than me. Other than the occasional joke around her birthday (“this is the first time I’ve had sex with someone in their 30s”), there has been no effect on our MB.

      Funny what the kids make of our world though. Our oldest once commented that “most” marriages have the wife being older…kids just must assume their experience is the norm!

        DW is 2 years older than me. Most people are shocked to find that out. Since DW’s personality is more outgoing and adventurous and I’m more reserved, people typically think she’s younger by several years. Plus, she’s just so darn sexy IMHO! 🙂

        The age difference really hasn’t affected our MB too much.

        @Scott+Zelda, Regarding kids– it’s always funny to hear what age our 4 year old thinks we all are. The other day, he told me that he thinks that I’m 6 and DW is 5….and he thinks his grandparents are about the same age as us!

        Same here i96. NO ONE ever thinks she is older than me. She looks and typically acts younger.

          DH and I are very close in age. The age difference doesn’t affect us because we are the same age.

          When we got married, an older lady told me I was very lucky to be the same age as DH. She was older than her husband by several years, and being she was a very submissive, conservative lady, she could not stand the things that people said to her, about it. It had bothered her all their married life.

            11 years difference.

            Impacted MB? I don’t always O but I’m still the higher drive spouse. (But again, I just enjoy the intimacy and emotional connection)

              DW is only a couple of months older than me. I’ve made a joke that I must have been very mature for my age when we were married since most men marry younger women. DW probably worries a bit about continuing to keep me happy in the bedroom as we age. She’s made the comment that if anything ever happens to her that I’ll most likely end up with a younger second wife.

              DW has said she’ll never marry after I die which is hard for me to believe since I’m 11 years older. I wouldn’t commit to that…BUT the longer we’re married, the more likely I am to say that. DW is that good and I don’t think I could find another…or at least one so kind and generous who would be willing to take on such a project as me. 😀

              I strongly suspect at this point I’d probably remarry pretty quickly if the right person came along. I simply love being married, and I’m not one of those who believes there is only one right person for you. Yes, DW has set the bar pretty high, but I like to much about the opposite sex to want to be alone for too long. Hope none of us has to find out for a very long time!

                DW and I are very close in age (a few hours apart). We haven’t found it to cause major issues – except that we both are old lol

                  We are 6 years apart, me being the older. The age difference hasn’t affected us in bed. Like NWNL, I’m the Higher drive.

                    I am 40 days *older than DW.

                    I don’t think it makes any difference in our MB now, but I was much more experienced sexually than she was when we started dating as Srs in H.S.   Factors that do matter are that she has had problems with her back including 2 surgeries and I am more fit and trim than I was 10 yrs ago.   I am the HD spouse but she’ll usually accommodate me for PIV when I want it or give me a rain check for later within the next 8-16 hrs….

                    *Edited to add:  but I was also 6 weeks premature so  we might have been destined to be born on the same day!

                      My husband is 15 months older.  I think the age difference has very little effect on our marriage bed.  The differences we have are influenced by many things, but I can’t think of age differences having any role in that… other than, if he would have been much older or mature, that may have changed how things were handled in the beginning.
