Love goes beyond the bars off age, caste, religion and colour. It is something so blissful and words fall short to express it. And when two people are in love, it is quite stereotypical to assume that the man is older in age and the woman is always the younger one. Having said so, in any relationship there are little bit of nok jhonks, and every couple need to work upon them.
Here we bring you some solutions to the problems specifically faced in a relationship where the man is younger than the woman. Read on!

If the woman is older to her husband, the fear of losing him to a younger, attractive and more energetic woman can seep in any time.
The Indian social set up is such that it looks down upon any relation that does not follow the set pattern of marriage where an older guy marries a younger woman. The pressure and scrutiny of family members and the society can be exhausting which may in turn affect your relation.
The age gap between the two partners can make it a little troublesome for both to socialise with each other’s respective friend circles. The topics to talk about and interests differ from one age group to another.
Women tend to mature faster than men. It is because of this reason that generally, marriages take place between younger women and older men so that difference of opinions can be limited and the men are mature enough to carry forward the relation. In the case of a reverse age gap, everything may seem to be going perfectly but differences in expectations can arrive over a period of time.
Have faith in your partner. Don’t let insecurities and jealousies ruin your marriage. Have faith in yourself too and believe the fact that you are as confident, beautiful and lively as the women of his age group. Trust him and have faith in your relationship. Why would he feel the need to cheat when he has a wife as wonderful as you?
Respect each other. Talk more, show interest in each other’s work. Be physically, mentally and emotionally involved with and in each other’s life. Never let ego come in your relation and choose words wisely while in an argument with each other.
You both may be having different friend’s circles. Socialise together but also give each other the space to hang out alone with them. Personal space allows a relation to grow.
Keep your expectations simple and real. Don’t over judge. Live and let live is the policy you both should follow. Don’t expect your partner to change themselves or their social circle for your sake.
People always want something to talk about. Let them enjoy their dose of gossip without letting it affect you. Instead, concentrate on making your relationship a happy one. Prove them wrong by showing them your love.
And in the end, cherish the relation you have got in hand. Be thankful to God for giving you what you wanted. Love each other, respect each other and be there for one another in good, bad and all times.
