A difference of 1 to 7 years is fine. But more than that is too much. Eac age level has different concerns, thus the more difference in years would imply that the levels of interests varies thus, causes unstability in the relationship.

It can depend on the individuals. While I'm hoping to find a special lady from 47-57 I couldn't in honesty consider someone below 40. Not only could there be a moral gray area there, but the simple fact is that once folks are more than 15 years apart in age, they have essentially grown up in different generations. Physical attraction goes only so far, then what happens when a couple's world-view and social attunements differ too much?

It all depends on the lifestyle. To me, 5 or 6 less or 15 or 20 more.

i was engaged to another 2 year old when we were both 2 years old. Zero difference, born in the same month in the same time zone, of the same state, New York, the Catholic Charter. Then my parents moved to another state. Oh well.
