I'm 27 and there is this woman at work who I thought was in her late 20's or early 30's and I was thinking of asking her out. But before I did I managed to find out her real age which is 39! Which was surprising because she doesn't look or act 39. After finding out I decided not to ask her out. (Also I don't know if she has been divorced or not. Since she is that old I kind of figured that might be the case.)
My question is how old is too old? (Does the Church have any sort of position on this?)
My grandmother was actually nine years older than my grandfather (both devout Catholics)and they were married for 58 years!!! I also recall from reading history that Prime Minister Disraeli of Britain was married to a woman who was 12 years older than he and they had a long happy marriage.
My thinking is that if she is old enough to be my mother than that is too old...ha. So the lady at work was 12-13 years old when I was born and most girls start having their peroids around 11-15 years of age so she is right on that line.
