Dear Auntie Abena,
I am a silent follower of your noble page and I appreciate everything you and your fans are doing.
I am a lady in my early 30’s and a single mom. I have read stories on your page about age differences in marriage and one that I will never forget is the man who found out later after many years of marriage that his wife is 6 years older than he is. I admired such stories until I find myself in one recently.
There is this guy who is seriously proposing marriage to me except he is 6 years younger than me.
Yes, I couldn’t believe it. He is okay with my age and within just this short time that we’ve communicated, he’s already started helping me improve upon myself. He’s helped me start a side business aside my regular work and promised to be there for me and my son. He is also there for me spiritually as I’ve declined a bit.
Auntie Abena, I know I am supposed to enjoy this but I am scared of the age difference. He’s promised not to let his family interfere after I asked if his family will be okay with me. I don’t know what to do.
I always knew I would be okay with a younger man who proves without reasonable doubt that he’s matured and capable of leading his family but this is harder than I had anticipated. Please let me know what you and your fans think and please notify me when you post.
