9-11. No fixed answer but generally I'd say 10-ish. Probably as people get older the spread can be greater and younger people should be closer in age.

Age is just a number. But if I may, 5-12 years difference is fine & good. What is essential is that both parties are aware, happy, they get along & make things possible.

Love is love, there are no rules except one: to love. For instance my grandma was 7 years younger than my grandpa and they led happy life together over 50 years. Last year my best friend married 9 years younger guy who proposed her after 1 month. Till now I`ve met happy married couples with max 11 years of difference in both ways and there is about 40% when woman is older!

There is a simple 'rule': minimum woman's age = man's age/2 + 7. Overall, I think that between 5 and 10 years is appropriate.

no more than 5 is the rule, but there can be exceptions.
