  • Would you marry someone the same age as you?

    How much does the age factor really affect your decision when considering someone? would you feel awkward marrying someone your age?

    Nope. Isn't that normal?
    Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

      most sisters I know would prefer someone elder. but the brothers that I speak to don't seem fussed. . . So, you wouldn't prefer someone younger?

          Not really. I wouldn't really look at age, unless she's old enough to be my mother.

          I think sisters says that because they feel younger men are immature. That might be true, however, many young brothers have a good head on their shoulder. If he is pious, then he'll be mature and know his responsibility. :insha:

            But Women I think mature quicker than men so it's better for a woman to marry someone who's older dunno..

                  Exactly what I think!!!! But would that be a sufficient reason to overlook a propsal without even getting to know the person?

                    ^People mature at different ages.

                    Me personally, age isn't such a big issue. But I know for others if the dude isn't 2-4 years older than they are they turn them down before even getting to know him, which is quite silly to be honest.

                    Do not think of minor sins as insignificant, for mountains are made out of pebbles.

                      Old wifes tale i tell youuuu!! I work with brothers and sisters in the 20-25yr range.

                      The brothers marshAllah are much more mature in comparison.

                        doesn't matter the age really as long as she can do sparring with me

                          I wouldn't mind, I don't see a problem with it. I'd have much more in common with him that way, as we grew up at exactly the same time.

                            When I was younger (late teens-early twenties) I used to have a strong preference for someone older. like at least 5-10years older. Now I really don't care much about age at all. I would consider someone, older, the same age, or younger. I think a lot of it depends on the maturity level of both people and what they are looking for.
