Age differences in soul mate relationships are quite common. Many people are shocked their soul mate is either so much older or younger than they are. Previously they were only attracted to, or got involved with, people in their own age group. Then out of the blue, and much to their surprise, they discover a soul mate connection with someone with a huge age gap between them.
Relationships with an age gap have their own challenges, but when you add the soul mate connection it can bring even more difficulties. This does not mean you shouldn’t be open to a soul mate relationship where there is an age difference. Society still smirks and looks down upon relationships where there are significant age differences. Of course it goes without saying , society judges these summer-winter relationships less when the man is older than when the woman.
Many of our callers worry about the age gap between themselves and their soul mate. If you and your soul mate don’t mind, who cares what anyone else thinks? If it works for the two of you, why listen to other people’s opinion? You are both adults and do not need everyone’s approval. It would be nice if friends and family were supportive, but you do not need their support to be a happy soul mate couple do you? As long as you do not let their lack of support hurt your soul mate relationship, they cannot affect it.
Some friends and family may mean well. They know statistics for relationships with age differences are just expressing concern. Others may want to run your life or feel they know what is right for you more so than you do yourself. You know how your feelings for your soul mate. They don’t. They may never have experienced the connection between soul mates, so how could they? People may see relationships with an age difference as risky. Aren’t all relationships a risk to some degree? If you are going to take any relationship risk, wouldn’t you take it for a soul mate? Regardless of the differences in your age?
One of the challenges relationships with an age difference has is having a family. One partner may feel they are too old for children or already have children. The same could be said for couples with little age difference. It may be more common in large age gap relationships, but it is not exclusive to them. It can be an issue in any relationship. Another challenge in relationships with an age gap is being labeled a gold digger or having one’s intentions questioned. Many people believe the only reason a couple would be together with such an age difference would be money and lifestyle. As long as the two of you know the truth, you don’t have to constantly prove yourself to others.
The main thing, however, to truly consider when it come to age differences, is that souls are timeless. The connection is not truly between bodies but between souls. When souls truly connect, time and space don’t seem to matter, neither do age differences. Don’t let the age difference between you and your soul mate concern you. The universe put the two of you together for a reason. Remain more focused on your connection, because, after all, age is just a number.
