When we got married, I was 25, my wife was 18. We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary this year, and we have two lovely girls - 20 months and 2 months old.
Sometimes the long-shot odds work out.

My wife and I have the same birthday. Same year too. I was born in the wee hours of the morning in Philly and she was born in the evening in Tulsa, so I am about 13 hours older. We celebrated our 14th anniversary this past July.
The youngest I ever dated was when I was 16, I dated a girl 14.
The oldest I ever dated was a girl 1 year older but that was a one month vacation thing. The oldest long term girlfriend I ever had was one day older than me.

My wife is younger than me by about 4.5 years and she was the furthest from my age in either direction. We were 15 & 19 when we started dating officially, but we had gone out as friends during the previous year.
*edit: Don't do math in your head, kids. It's usually wrong. I meant to say 3.5 years. ~8>)

The oldest I've dated was 35 years old and separated. His wife left him for a woman and took their two children with her. I was 23 and fascinated so much that I failed to realize that he was a loser and his wife might not have been all that crazy to become a lesbian.
But alas, I love men and got a man-child all of 21 for my next boyfriend. I was 24 then.

Originally posted by John OrquiolaWhen I was 24, I dated a girl who was 18. On the flip side, when I was 28, I dated a woman who was 34 (which I found out later on. She didn't look 34.) So I've got a 6 year gap on either side.
Of course, if I were a Muslim, the ideal woman would be half-my age + 7. Which means, being 30, 15 + 7 = 22. I should find me a 22 year old.
14+7=21. That's it. I'm converting to Islam.
The oldest gap I've had is I was 25, she was 38. Didn't look it.
I'm 5 years and 9 months older than MRS. When I was 26-28 I mostly dated young ladies in the 19-23 age range. The only "issue" I ever had was the "maturity thing" (coupled with friends asking me if I was taking dates to Chuck E. Cheese).
University of Kentucky basketball isn't a matter of life and death, it's much more important than that.
When I was 20, I dated a girl who was 16. That was the biggest difference in age I've had with a girlfriend. All other girlfriends have been within a year or two of my age either way, and my wife is 2 years older than me almost to the day (her birthday is the day before mine).
I commute via bicycle 6 days a week, 5 miles each way. It takes anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes depending on traffic through Harvard Square. No gasoline, parking is free, and I can do tune-ups in my living room.
