Last time I checked these forum's weren't religiously based, but you can always try, you might get bashed for even bringing up religion though (on a non-religiously fueled topic).

Well ...many followers of that ( bible ) fairy tale believe the earth is only 6000 years old. So if you are looking for any "answers" in that book,

...you may as well make up your own.

Age differences in what?

Let's see: I believe the fairy tale ( bible ) said
Methuselah was 969 years when he died? If he had ANY wives, he MUST have been robbing the cradle.

Catholic Priests in their 30s-60s molest boys in their teens ...and younger.

Crazy muslims think if you kill for Allah, you will get 72 virgins in the after-life. But will they be virgin young girls or OLD UGLY spinsters?

Mormons have magic underware ( but we don't know how old it is, do we?)

Sooooooo many questions....

LOL oh man the replys so funny really that one by bag of bones bout got me down on the floor laughing. But for what its worth I am pretty sure there is no age requirement between men and women in the bible. some same ages some not. Some think Joseph was bout 35 and Mary like 14 or 16? and Tamar in old testament was waiting around for ages for her 3rd hubby to grow up to do his manly duties so he had to be a kid and her a woman. So anyway think its not supposed to matter according to God but to people it does.

it dosen't say anything about it in the bible but some food for thought...If you marry someone very much older than yourself....even if it works out and you stay together....at best....you will still be young when that person is back in diapers

Yeah, but there's a verse later on in the bible that says anyone can be judged, what's with that?

I find it amazing that "Christians" pick and choose what they like out of the bible. Know this comment isn't from the bible but just making an observation. From what I understand Christians are supposed to have faith. If you meet someone you truly love for all the right reasons, who happens to be older than you, then where's the faith that you don't have to worry about the age difference? Not everyone ends up in diapers alot of people are quite healthy as they get older. If you use the logic someone is to hard to be around if sick then I guess if your spouse gets cancer at 20 you better dump them cause it's too hard to deal with. If you really love someone then what happened to in sickness and in health?

Hey man don't know if you won your bet but I been married to my best friend for the past 10 years and still love her like the day I met her. I'm 32 and shes 55 now and she has some health issues and I am there for her but this for real and for the long haul and I'll be there for her no matter what even if shes in diapers like that one dude said. So, love is love no matter what age.

I have never heard of any age requirments but I am sure gambling doesn't please God. God's people should be a holy people and not be partakers of evil works such as gambling.

Gambling has nothing to do with age differences in relationships though. Your taking this off track account void member.

Punnchy if you would read he said they were christians and had a $5 bet on who was right. That is gambling. It amazes me how many people claim to be christians and hold on to evil works of this world. As God's people we are to abstain from the very appearance of evil.

This really got off track. lol. The guy who posted the original comment probably wasn't trying to offend God or gamble. Most likely wasn't thinking and just debating with his friend. NO one is perfect. A christian wouldn't condemn him but help him realize that with another topic on the forum elsewhere(see above to Bag of Bones comment Luke 6:37 "Judge not lest ye be judged") This topic is about age difference between a couple, I believe. Interesting subject since it seems alot of Christians are quite prejudice. I, for one, am not. I am Christian, and a dad. If my son, who is 26 was dating someone his own age and they were immature, had problems, or into drugs, etc. I'd find it a blessing if he wanted to date someone alot older or younger who was a good person with their head on straight. Hard to find good people today. Once you are an adult, and have mature thinking, a person should be with someone who makes them happy, and is good for them, no matter what their age. I have never found anywhere in the bible saying it matters if there is an age difference. However, it does say things about following laws. So, I would imagine, this age difference would only apply to those age 18 and over who are legally adults. There's my 2 cents for the day.:)

Hey joey. Saw your post "true love". I'm so happy you two are still together. You guys really do have true love. I pray she lives a long long life. And that the cancer goes away. She was always good to me when we were all neighbors at plummers. Much love!

"kendra", this is an example of the first category I spoke of earlier. And as far as th "Judge not" argument, I would submit 1Cor.2:14-15. Might throw in 2Cor.13:5 just for good measure.

Has Reader's Digest come out with an abridged version of the Bible that can be read cover to cover in the course of a morning crap?

I see alot of the catch phrases that are so often repeated, but without the backup material to sustain them. Sad, it's a pretty good book when you actually get into it.
