I Must Confess: I’m a cradle-snatcher!
My hubster is in fact younger than I am – he is my very own “toy boy”.
They say that there are advantages to the “older woman/younger man” scenario:
- Women don’t reach their sexual peak until later in life, so it takes a younger man to keep ’em happy.
- Statistically men die younger than women, so having a younger husband means that you are less likely to be left a widow.
However I wasn’t thinking of any of these things when I first discovered that I was cradle-snatching and dating a (shock horror!) younger man!
Confessions of a Cradle-Snatcher …
I’ve shared our love story before – I initially thought my hubster was about 22 (I was 20). When I realised he was in fact eighteen months younger than me – and had been two whole years behind me in high school – it did put me off a little. The age gap seemed almost insurmountable back then!
Nowadays, we don’t even think about; and if we don’t mention it, nobody else thinks about it either.
And next week, we will celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary :-).
What is the age gap between you and your partner – are you a cradle-snatcher and proud of it?!
Linking up with My Home Truths for another Monday confession.
