My point is that if the answer to these questions still points you in the direction of courtship, don’t allow the age gap to become an unnecessary hindrance.
The key to a good marriage has nothing to do with age.
Because the idea of dating someone in their teens makes me uncomfortable, I’m gonna go ahead and round that up to an even 20, which seems…
still pretty young to me, honestly, but I guess 5 years isn’t that much.
While a man certainly has the role of leadership in a marriage, as head of the home, he still has to be able to regard his wife as his equal in dignity and in worth.
When we see the awesome design that God has for marriage, it is absolutely transforms our lives.
(You can read more about this if you go to the above reference I have given to the question I answered on my website called “Too Young”.) One caution I do make, with regards to age difference is that you ensure that you and she are both be able to view yourselves as equals.
If you live this time of courtship out, storing up your treasure of physical affection for each other, the blessing of physical intimacy in marriage will be all the greater!
The joys of the total gift you make of yourselves for each other in marriage will be beyond comparison!
