What is the age difference between you and your significant other? I'm a decade younger than my FH and many people are surprised when they learn this. How many years apart would you consider a true "age gap relationship?"
FH is only two years older than me, but to me it’s more about maturity level than how many times you’ve circled the sun.
My FH is 7 years older than me. But everyone thinks we are around the same age.
There are 3 years between myself and FH – I am 3 years older than him. I would consider 10 years or more an “age gap relationship” (less if you were talking about people in their teens or 20s, maybe even 30s, because there tends to be such a huge difference in emotional maturity and just where you are in your life at those points)
My boyfriend is 5 months, and 9 days older than me. but overall I would say as you get older a 10 yr gap is fine.... a 16 and a 26 year old SHOULD NOT be together until they are older.... but a 21 and 31 and up is no problem

My brother married someone 20 years younger than him; I consider that a true age gap relationship. I agree with others that it's not really about the number (as long as both are consenting adults!) but more about the maturity level. Unfortunately my sister-in-law is super immature for her age. So, while she is 30 and he is 50, they seem MANY generations apart in how they act, view the world, make decisions, etc. It's honestly kind of painful to witness.
But the age gap between couples is never something I think much about or have opinions on when I meet a couple in general. Only if one or both of their behavior/actions makes it noticeable.
There are two years age difference between me and my fiance. I agree with previous comments, I think 10+ years age difference would be considered an age gap relationship. I don't think there's anything wrong with having an age gap though.
FI is about 10 months older than I am. In my previous relationship he was 4 years older than me, which I considered to be an age gap at the time (we dated for a few years starting at 16/20, but he was immature for his age so it evened out).
As an adult, I would probably consider an 'age gap' to be 5 years apart and up.
My FH and I are a month apart. I did date some older guys and was actually surprised I ended up with someone my age. I think the stereotype of the rich older man and the trophy wife colors a lot of people's view of great couples with big age differences
