Having said all that, though, I want you to completely forget the age difference thing, because, quite frankly, I honestly don't think people care these days. You think they'll be nudging each other and pointing at you in the street, but unless he looks incredibly young for his age and you look incredibly old for yours, it's not that much of an age gap - particularly at this stage of your life. Tongues would wag if you were 26 and he was 16, but that's hardly the case, is it? If anyone does give you a hard time about it, laugh and say, ''You're jealous.'' If anyone gives him a hard time and criticizes you, say, ''You know what they say about older women'' (they're much better in bed). Don't worry about his friends ribbing him. If it does make him up and leave you, he wasn't worth having in the first place, was he? There's no need to point out the age gap to your ex-hubby; it's none of his business anyway. As for your kids, again, I swear they won't notice. If they do, tell them that you really like this guy and don't really think it's important. The older woman/younger man combination works well in lots of ways. Relax and enjoy rather than sabotage this.
