This is an important topic and I highly agree with all the points you said here.
In relationships, age (and I'm talking about chronological age) is just a "number," and I'm a firm believer that maturity doesn't come with age, but experience, which is also shaped by a person's psychological state. Relationships can definitely last if both parties are emotionally mature enough regardless of their age. Society may hold a negative stigma about this, but love doesn't care. I'm happy to hear the story of how you and your husband overcome it :)
This was an excellent piece. Thank you for pouring your heart out and sharing this relationship lesson, Besty :)
