NOT wrong. your age and motivation are factors. the key is to be compatible enough to become a family unit. better if he's in good shape and healthy compared to you. as you get older, age gap becomes less revelant.

I used to think I would only date/be with a guy between 1-5yrs older than me, but as I grew older n dated a few, I realized I would much rather end up with someone 10yrs and above. Although age doesn't determine maturity but more often than not, as a gal, you are more mature than a guy in ur age bracket.
As a strong willed woman with a quest for continuous learning, an older man comes with a lot of experience, our conversations will be more intriguing. Since he has lived a while, I can look through his track record and easily trust his leading.
Plus, let's face it, there ain't nothing better than good old loving. Older guys are just more sensitive. Just like wine, older is better wink.

It's mainly Nigerians that worry about their kids growing up with them. When I left the shores of Africa my mentality changed for the better. People wondered why my sister inlaw had no child after years of marriage. They asked my mum if all was well, my mum told the few that managed to ask to mind their business. It was strange to me as well, Haba after how many years and they said they were still planning. She was 22 when they got married. When the woman felt like she was ready...she started popping them out like no mans business.

It works well for some and doesn't for others. But please don't say you wanno grow up with your child what happens if you cannot conceive for years after marriage? It's the worst reason to get into marriage early.

Nice one, @ OP
I would only remind you that after menopause, women get this increase is sexual urge due to reduction in estrogen.
When your hubby is already ten years down the line, it could be a struggle to stay satisfied with just him. At least if he was still doing fifties maybe he can manage to perform, but at sixties, I think that's when men see it as something that happens once a month.
So it's not just about love, chemistry and energy for sex matter too.

Well... I've read some comments here and some opinions are good while others are fallacious.
If you ask me, as long as there is UNDERSTANDING, age is not really a barrier, whether the man is older than the wife or vice versa

I would however like to correct something ...... Maturity is not a function of age alone but what you are exposed to, and what responsibility you currently carry. In the days of old, women mature quick because they were given responsibility at an earlier age (managing the home) among others, but it isn't exactly so today.

What makes a man mature in my opinion is how much he takes charge of his life, the leadership trait he possesses as well as being meaningfully employed. and hardworking. This could be any man of adult age. the 26 year old who takes care of his younger ones financially and provides guidance to them is more mature than a 35 year old living off his father's money via inheritance without any responsibility.

P.S. The ladies here opening their craw craw mouth to say that their age mates are immature, most of them's brains are still wearing Pampers, grin tongue and it is even filled with shit. tongue

Abeg make una no vex, as I dey type this post, I dey suffer side effect of my drugs, tongue na why my comments no correlatetongue

Ruthia: Is it wrong for a lady to marry a man 10 years older than her? If yes or no please explain.

Ask yourself this;
Is age more important to you than having someone who loves you?
Whichever answer you have for the above question is solely your choice.
Mind you, small age gap doesn't garrantee a good marraige.

aisha2: Do you love him?
Are you marrying him because you make each other happy or just because he is available?

Is he kind? Is he considerate of you?

Is he a good decent honest man?

Are you only concerned because people will talk? Know that people always talk.

You avoided the most probable reason...He has a deep and heavy POCKET!!!

The person that rekindled my light is 22 years younger than me.

I will walk to the end of the earth for her.

Anyway I guess I'm different. I've rarely been attracted to guys close to my age.

lofty900: considering the fact that women age faster than men especially after child birth, its perfectly ok to marry a man 10yrs older unless u wanna look 10yrs older in 10yrs time

my dear, the love will be strong depending on the guy. Some old guys still have style and good packaging. But a Naija man will want to dominate the wife

It is called preference.

If God made an older man for me, the first thing He would have done is change who I am to fancy an older man. Asking me to marry an older man with my current mindset is martial sucide

I do not know God's plan for my kid and I am willing to accept in the end. But naturally, hell no!

A 30 yr old that comes to look for my 18yr old wants to be castrated.

I also know that age difference has nothing to do with martial success.

I just like them young grin

P.S.: If I married at 25 to a 37yr olf man (12yrs) our kid will be 2yrs when he ll be 40. The older the diff, imagine the age of hubby. @50, he will be going to PTA meeting in primary&jnr secondary when his mates are celebrating their children's matric/convocation.
its not like that.....have u take time to check Obama,Gej and obiano kids? I think what matters is happiness
If a man is to marry young and maintain such difference, them we are talking pedo.

There is nothing wrong in marrying a man 10yrs older. Am 15yrs older than my wife, We love ourselves so much. I treat her like my Baby, she sees me as his Hero. I kw she will still look very pretty and young when we grow old. i kw I will still appreciate her by then

My husband knew he wanted us to get married @ 21; It was just working towards been able to build a home.

He actually wanted to marry @ 25

It is fun when both are very young.

I was never attracted to anyone way older than me. I never did 5yrs self.

Hubby is older by 4yrs.

I am thinking; if 25 marries 35 then@40, his first kid is 4 if God does it immediately

i think that u are getting it twisted here. D issue is d age difference between them, not when d first child arrives. D child arriving at whatever age shud not be part of d equation.
Celine dion is 29 yrs younger than her husband of many yrs.
I am 8yrs older than my wife but she looks much older just after 1.
My dad is 13yrs older than my mum but believe me, my dad is still a guyman unlike my mum who now has dis grandma looks( although she is ) when compared with her husband.
Plus or minute 15 yrs is still okay. My humble opinion.

Atmmachine: You're 32 & your husband is 42.
You had your first child at 34 when your husband turns 46.


Your first child finishes primary school when your husband turns 53.

Before your first child enters secondary school your husband is already dead..

You're very wicked to your child. grin grin grin grin
And what if u were 20 and ur spouse was 22, but to date u do not yet have a child of your own?
