If you didn’t know already, I’ll just tell you. My husband is older than I am. Now most of you are saying, “that’s no big deal, my husband is a little older than me too” because in MOST marriages, the man usually has a couple of years on their bride. My momma told me it’s because girls mature faster than boys, so dating a guy 2 or 3 years older than you puts you on the same “maturity” level. However, when I say my husband is older than I am, I’m talking about more than a couple of years…let’s say “several years” older than me. At this point, I usually get the raised eyebrows and a “Reeeaalllly?” followed by an “Oh’ and some off colored Anna Nicole Smith reference. Oh, yes, I’ve heard it all. I just give a courtesy laugh and go on. They have no idea how happy we are. If they wanted to know about our great relationship, we would be more than happy to tell them some of our secrets. One is our love of humor. There is not a day that goes by that we don’t smile at each other for some reason or another and sometimes we even find the subject of our age difference entertaining. The following link includes many things Sterling and I have had the giggles over. I hope you do too.
