Have you heard the saying, “Age ain’t nothing but a number”? Nowadays, you shouldn’t be concerned about the age difference. What matters most is the chemistry between the two of you and the fact that you love each other. Things tend to turn out the way you believe they will. Erase that thought about his family and be confident in your plans. Take it one step at a time. Tell yourself that should his family be against this marriage, you will go ahead with your plans anyway. And once it happens, make it a bed of roses to prove them wrong.
