    I was just wondering how many brides out there are older than their grooms! I find it interesting that it is occurring more and more. It seemed to be that the men were usually older than the women, but times are a changing. When I first started dating my FI and people would find out about the age difference, there were a lot of people that were surprised.

    I am 3 years older than my FI. My FBIL #1 is engaged to a woman that is 4 years older than him, FBIL #2 was dating an older woman, but not anymore. FBIL #3 is engaged to a woman that is 3 years older than him, and a very close family friend of my FI's is living CL with a woman that is 3 years older than him (and they have twin boys). FBIL #1 was with an older woman before his current FI as well. I think she had 6 years on him!

    As you can see this is becoming something of a norm in my life! I always tell people that women live longer than men, so this way I get a few extra years with him!

      I am only 3 months older than my FI. Not much of a difference, but he teases me about it occassionally.

      Most of my friends are in fact older than their husbands, widest age difference is I think is 4 years.

        Funny, my Mom is 2 years older than my Dad and I'm 6 years older than Mark. People have no idea until it comes up in a conversation, then they're a bit surprised. Demi Moore, made it easier for us. :)

          My mom is a yr older than my dad. i'm 3 yrs older than fi. We are from different towns, so no one really knew until about 2 yrs into our relationship when fi was making fun of me. otherwise people thought i was his age or younger. fi constantly teases me about it, but it's all in fun.

              I'm 4 years older than Brian. It's really never been a factor, except when we first met I was old enough to get into bars and he was a few months off from being 21 and would get so jealous that I went out a lot without him. But that's it!

                I am 9 months older than FI, but I didn't know I was older until after we were dating for a bit. He looks older than me so I assumed he was. Both of his brothers married older women as well. One has a 10 yr age difference and the other is only 1 yr.

                    It is pretty common! Funny thing is, I was intoxicated when I met my FI and was actually playing match maker with him and my friend. (Thankfully that didn't turn out! LOL) I looked at his ID under a street light and could have swore his birthday was Aug 28, but in fact it was Dec 8. After dating for about a month, and thinking he was 20, we were at his cousins wedding and he went up to get a drink. When the bartender jokingly asked him if he was old enough, his mom was standing there and vouched for him saying he was going to be 20 in Dec. I almost choked on my drink. It didn't make mush difference, but still, I was dating someone in their 'teens'! LOL. Once I got over the shock of him being 19 rather than 20, I would bug him about being a teenager. Now he bugs me about being old!
