I'm 41 and my husband is 58. We've been married for nearly 10 years and have a 6 year old son. The age gap has never bothered me. I met Mark after dating a number of immature men my age and thought a grown up who didn't want to spend his spare time playing video games would be a refreshing change. We're both teachers, that's how we met. We also have similar values and extended family. I haven't noticed many instances of being stared at and commented about when we're out and about. We have a son so it would be obvious to most people that we're a couple with a child. Life is too short to worry about what other people think, love isn't easy to find and some of us love someone who just happens to be more than 10 years older.
