People often don’t believe me when I say that me and my husband have been together for almost 14 years and married for 12 and a half of them. It’s mainly because they don’t think we look old enough to have been married that long as I am only 31 (32 in January!) and my husband turns 34 next weekend. But we did get married at a young age, I was just 19 and he was 21. We then had our first baby the year after.


Getting Older

My husband as been feeling a bit down about his birthday. He really can’t believe he is going to be 34 already he keeps saying ‘where have my 20’s gone?’. He is even looking older. He has wrinkles around his eye, which I put down to drinking too much alcohol. His metabolism isn’t as fast as it used to be and he has got a receding hairlineย and a bald patch at the back.

Hair Loss

Out of these things it’s his hair loss that worries him the most. It started receding when he was around 22. And his dad was bald by the time he was 40, so looks like my husband might be too. Which he is not looking forward to at all. He likes to keep is hair very short, so you can’t notice as much, but he says soon he will be shaving it all off.

Does it Matter

To be quite honest. I am not bothered about his hair. I don’t care if he has a bald patch, if he shaves it all off or even if he dyed the hair hes has left bright blue. I love him for who he is and I wish more than anything, that on his birthday, he doesn’t mind that he is a year older. Just that we all love him and he loves us and will are all happy. As happiness is all you ever need.

  2. You both look amazing, but to be honest yes its something I worry about now as a single mum to 6 aged 37 in January I do think where have almost 37 years gone. My eldest will be 18 in 4 weeks so yes I am feeling old.

  3. Getting older can feel really scary – my partner worries about it more than me which is frustrating as I’m the older one by seven years and it sometimes makes me feel ancient!! I love your attitude towards your partner getting older and I’m sure you’ll have many more happy years together ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I worry about getting older, I still feel 18 but am 30 in two years, my partner is 42 this year and when he turned 40 it was literally like the end of the world he was really depressed about it, I told him he’s as young as the woman he’s feeling lol xXx

  5. Getting older can be hard. I started going grey very young – it just makes you feel like “it’s all over”. All psychological though!
