Age gap and relationships

The older partner already has family commitments
from a previous relationship, which can cause friction
with their current partner. On a similar , the possibility
of starting a family may lead to tension where the younger
person would like to have but their older partner
has a family from a previous relationship, and doesn't
want to have any more .
Partners in relationships with large age gaps often find
it difficult to relate to their partner's friends,
sometimes finding their older partner's friends
boring or their younger partner's friends immature.
Even if this is not the case, their partner's friends
often leave them out of the group, either consciously or
subconsciously. Similarly, partners may have different
ideas of fun places for dates.
As with any relationship, insecurity is of the main
issues which can destroy a happy couple. When in relationships
with an age gap, partners often find themselves worrying
that their other half will run off with someone their own
If the relationship is meant to be then the partner will understand any issues, and be willing to work towards resolving them. Many people in these relationships, particularly the older partner, make the mistake of bottling up their feelings, assuming that their partner will not
understand due to the age difference, or is too immature
to want to change. Communication is of particular importance
with regards to future plans for marriage and family.
Some relationships with age gaps simply won't work,
as with any relationships, however by talking things through
and making the effort to respect your partner's needs
you can increase the chances of making the relationship
work in the longer term.

Easy there, buddy - someone might accuse you of using your intellect on this site

I've been in a relationship with a woman 15 years older, and I think the age gap will catch up with everyone eventually.

Hey Goodbuddy, your blog is quite interesting.
You do a good job of informing blogland with relationship advice It reads almost like a public service announcement or podcast.
Curious, what is the intent /goal of your blog posts? Are you a psycho therapist or life coach seeking clients here? : )
