Dating seven years not married
"God brought us together, and once we knew that, the other factors didn't really even matter. The couple still serves together in ministry and has two teenage sons.
Johanna said she found it a bit awkward to connect with her boyfriend, Paul’s, friends, even though he was only three years younger. I felt removed from their age and current life stage," she says. A friend once told me that the acceptable age difference was half the older person's age plus seven.If he had still been a "college kid," I might have had a hard time feeling like we were equals.And while the same life stage can seem to erase an age difference, Willy Wooten, a licensed marriage and family therapist, who has been counseling for over 30 years, encourages couples to think ahead.He had graduated from college two months earlier, so we were both in the workforce fulltime.Even though Kevin didn't have as much life experience as I did, our daily lives basically looked the same.
