'My girlfriend is older than me...'
Dear Diana, I am 29 and my girlfriend is 33. We are deeply in love and are planning to get married soon.
Not that we consider it necessary, but as a step forward in our relationship. Although our parents are aware of our relationship, they don’t know our age difference. Do you think it will pose a problem?
It is only a four-year age difference, so it really does not matter. No one will even realise it, unless you tell them. There should be no problem in convincing your respective folk. There are numerous couples out there where the woman is older. There is no such thing that a woman has to be younger, as long as you have made up your minds, no one can stop you due to the age factor. So banish such thoughts and tell the world.
Diana will solve it!
