Who Says Age Is Not A Problem In A Relationship? by Input(m): 3:10pm On Nov 29, 2012
When I was 15years old I dare not walk up to any girl of 20years let alone 25years to toast else I will get some very hot slaps.Then you will hear things like 'you nor get respect?','you nor know your age? n bla bla bla.
But now when the same guy is 25years old and she is 30 or even 40 years you will begin to hear 'age is just a number','what matters in marriage is love','I love him'
Ladies why?

Age is definitely an issue, it makes me sick hearing a 25yrs old girl even dating a 35yrs old guy, in my own opinion i feel the age difference shud be @ least four years angry

Someone reasoning exactly like me.

When I hear of age difference of 10 years,I call it child abuse(not literal though)

People dont even consider the average age at which people die(let say the average man who leaves long die at 7O,so that means the widow will likely remain unmarried from age 60 till she dies.)

You knw one bad thing about Nigerians? We mix cultures a lot...we copy the lifestyle and psyche of Americans,Germans,Chinese...and mix everything together with our indeginuos cultures.Decades ago,the Nigerian psyche on marriage believes in a man marrying a woman he is older than.But due to 'Westernization' (some dimwits will say its Civilization),the common phrase nowadays is 'Age is just a number'. In truth,its more than a number.Its, in most cases, a determinant of Maturity,Knowledge and Skill,all needed for a successful relationship

When you are above 18, age should not matter anymore as you are an adult and you should be able to handle other adults

10yrs is like a generation gap, while a 35yr old man is thinking about growing in his career, a 25yr old girl is likely thinking about clubing, there wont be effective communication as their ideas and perception are different and the worst thing a man can do is be in a union with someone who do not share is objectives.

Na women dey shift the goalpost as they wish

If a 19yr old boy goes to ask a 25yr old girl She would remember the age difference and decline

But 10yrs down the line if both parties are still unmarried the story would change to age is just a number.

At 19-20 you would hear girls saying I cant date my agemates. 10yrs down the line we hear age is just a number

Age is nt only a number. A man has 2 reach certain age range 2 acquire maturity, knowlege, money & skills. A relationship cant survive without all these.
As 4 women marrying people dat r 10-15yrs older dan dem, 4rm my experience; d ladies said dy ll prefer a man who's 10-15yrs older cos he must v passd tru diff phases of lyf hustle, matured & rich 2 take care of dem. Bt honestly I dnt knw whr dy gt dat 4rm.

Age is just an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Her!! Dumbass!!! Abi wife na her again?? Its an established fact its better for the man to die before his wife as older women are generally better taken care of by their kids after their husband's demise.

And even that is a fallicy so we're saying then thats its a given that because I'm older than someone I will die before them? What a stupid statement.

I think age matters alot in a relationship,but people just try to ignore that aspect despite knowing it's the truth.. One thing i love about reality is that it doesn't change. A reality always remain the reality.. Weda na for 1st century abi na 31st century,it will still remain the same..Dem go even tell you say "DUH,THIS IS THE 21ST CENTURY" age doesn't matters again... Some wey even get liver sef go slap you con tell you say "WAKE-UP"

@ xplode, na small pikin talk u dey vibe here. when its time for u to look for a wife, ur story go definitely change. some girls of 25yrs old do think like 35yrs old men. so that means they are in the same frame mind most times.

some women want very matured husbands in reasoning and in taking care of responsibilities. lets not forget that thw prevailing condition of things in the country has made it really difficult for a man to be financially and psychologically ready for a family before he is 30yrs old. unless say them family set wella

other factors are involved too.

Men are naturally babies. The older they get, the better their maturity. Yes the age gab should at LEAST be 4 yrs and at most as old as the woman can live with. Although there shouldn't be bosses in a relationship but the man should be able to LEAD,it takes a lot of maturity to do that. Simple.
