Prime of his life

Was chating with a close friend the other night when the talks of relationship came into mind. He's happily married to his boyfriend for about 2 years by now while mine still maturing at 8 months. Both of them are in their 20s, him 25 and his boyfriend 27. Us on the other hand, are 13 years apart.

So our conversation drifted to the future when we were talking about 10 years from now. And then it hit me. I'd be erm, 30s and he'll be in his 40s. Somehow the figure just appeared so... old for me. LOL.

And I said something pretty selfish, that I would be in my prime in my life then, while the beau's getting older, and we're this old married couple and life's getting boring.

Then my buddy whacked me.

"He's also in the prime of his life at the moment, and he chooses to be with you. You ever thought about that?"

I'm such a selfish guy! I promise to see things from both sides from now on...

There's this ex-Malaysian Chinese guy from my uni. He's in his 40's now and been married for 25 years. I've never seen his partner, but from what I've been told, their age gap is 20-30 years. I don't see a problem.

And one of my closest friend is 19, and his partner's 40. It seemed a bit odd at first, but when you really think about it; what's wrong?

Ageism is a bad thing...
