If you're with someone they see you all the time, so you both will change gradually and, if it all works out, still find each other attractive and fun to be around however far down the road you go.And quite frankly it never occurred to me to consider my body becoming an issue. I wouldn't be against dating someone with that age gap again but in my own head I'd just think this wouldn't be something long term. My current BF is 3 years younger and we get along fabulously. But I went on a date with someone 14 years younger than me, and that felt like I was being kind of creepy. we had to get married in the 11 th month of his 12 month holiday for residency! We are peers in the relationship and respect each other, which is what we both need/want.

In the earlier sources the rule had a different interpretation than in contemporary culture, as it was understood as a formula to calculate suitable age for the bride, instead of a lower limit for the suitable age.Generally though, as long as they have a similar level of maturity, no worries.
