Age factor
Hi guys,

I'm inlove with my boyfriend :). Sadly though he has an issue with my age. I'm 32 and he is 28, we have a cute boy (2yrs) and on Saturday he decided tho tell me that he has an issue with my age and doesn't know what to do.
I do want to share my life wih him however he feels he still need to be independant and find himself before commiting. At the same time he doesn't want to let go. Well i suggested that the only solution is to end the relation and move on. I have thought thoroughly and can't find a better solution.

What are your views and how best to handle the sagga

As your boy is 2, this guy has presumably bee with you for at least 2 years, and NOW he has an issue with your age ? How unreasonable --- does he generally think as slowly as a glacier ? The actual age difference is trivial. By 28 he should already be independent and should have found himself without resorting to missing persons. I suspect he is wanting to sew some more wild oats, feeling cautious about committment, and the age issue is simply a smokescreen . If you do decide to part, make sure you go through the Maintenance court aso it requires him to pay proper maintenance for the child
