10 Unavoidable Relationship Issues That Couples With Age Gaps Face
The older we get the more commonplace relationships with larger age gaps become. There were always those cool kids at school who had the mysterious older partners. The ones who were shagging the teachers, or their friends’ mums – but that was all very creepy, looking back on it. When one partner is dealing with pocket money and curfews and the other with salaries and mortgages, something jars.
But now times have changed. Everyone is a certified adult and ages blur.
For those of us who are still coupled up with our uni sweethearts, a few months, a year apart at most, we find ourselves curious about the impact an age gap might take on a relationship. Are their issues the same? Are their relationships more harmonious? More importantly DO THEY HAVE BETTER SEX?
We listed the 8 most common relationship issues, as flagged up by relationship coach Donna Lancaster, who runs a couples retreat, and got some helpfully gobby volunteers in aptly age-gappy relationships to comment on how their spanning years make a difference in dealing with them. For better or for worse.
