People also ask, does age difference matter in a relationship?
But when it comes to our own relationships, bothmen and women prefer someone their own age, but are open tosomeone 10-15 years their junior or senior. While there isvariation across cultures in the size of the difference inage-gap couples, all cultures demonstrate the age-gapcouple phenomenon.
Furthermore, is 10 years a big age gap in a relationship? A relationship age gap bigger than 10years often comes with its own set of issues. But at the sametime, I still keep an open mind—a big age gap doesn'thave to be a nonstarter.
Furthermore, is 5 years too much of an age difference?
There's a simple rule for this. Half your ageplus seven is the youngest person you should be dating. So ifyou're 20, you shouldn't be dating someone younger than 17 whichmeans five years is too big of a gap. If you're 30,you shouldn't be dating anyone younger than 22 so a fiveyear gap is just fine.
