Is your spouse significantly older than you?

October 29, 2009 at 3:27 am in Family & Relationships, Love & Sex by Nana

My spouse is 16 years older than me.  I’m in my 60th year, and he’s in his 76th year.   We’ve been married for 15 years.  For many many years he’s had way more energy than I had.

He has that certain magnetism that women find attractive even at his age.  The same as I was.

But I’m finding it difficult at this point.  He’s aging and I’ve watched as he’s let one thing or another that he used to enjoy, slip away.

But I’m finding it hard because I still want to go places, do things, that he has no interest in at all.

It’s starting to feel more of a challenge than I need at this point in my life.  He’s become very sedate.

It seems I can’t live with him and I can’t live without him.

A real source of conflict for me.
