Does Age Really Matter: I Am Madly In Love,Please Help!

Hello Lively Stones,

I’m a 26 years old lady. It took me seven years of writing jamb before I gained admission into university. During the years of waiting, I avoided relationships and close interaction with people. I had some few proposals for marriage but the thought of entering marriage without anything (no skill and certificate) made me reject all.

When I finally gained admission, I decided to wait till after year one before entering one. But as fate would have it, I met this young man whom I became friends with. Initially, I felt it was just a fling but as time went on, he proved me otherwise.

Along the line, I found out I was two(2) years older than him and I wanted to quit but he pleaded that age does not matter. Seriously, I agreed to continue because he was in final year then while I was in 100 level and I felt that after one year when he leaves school, I will end everything.

He graduated last year and promised to marry me in three years time which I know that its not possible.

Recently we had an issue and he broke up with me. After the break up, he started flaunting another girl online. Sincerely I was hurt but I had to move on. He came back after two weeks saying that he cannot live without me, begging and crying that his heart belongs to only me and that he doesn’t connect with the other lady.

To be honest, I love this guy so much, no guy has ever treated me the way he does but I’m just confused. I’m 26 and hoping to get married in 3 years time and this guy who is 24, who has not even gone for youth service will not be ready by that time.

Do you think I should accept him back? Do you think love is enough and that I can be patient to wait for him for the next five years considering his age.

Talk to me please

  1. Hello,

    For me,I think its not much about his age but about his integrity. You both broke up and within a short time,he moved on to someone else?

    So,my question is: why did you break up the first time? Was it age related?

    My next question is: you want to get married in a couple of years…is he ready by then as well?…he even said its not possible so why waste your time with him?

    Your answers to the above questions will help you arrive at a decision.

    Be true to yourself. Do not let your feelings cloud your mind…be careful,think before you agree to anything.

    Pray to God and He will guide you.
