Apparently I am sexist and vain..


Today, a person I do know very well asked how old the Frog was. When I told her, she called me a sexist vain man who should be punished for having a relationship with somebody over thirty years my junior. Apparently, according to this self centred and spiteful woman, I should be married to someone within five years below my age, or eight years above it. To marry anyone outside these parameters make me a hypocrite, sexist and vain beyond belief.

I did a bit of research, and found that yes, a man is said to be a hypocrite for wanting someone so much younger than himself. Relationships are to share life with similar aged people, ONLY..

Personally, I was shocked that anyone would have such an opinion - surely it is my business who I like, and our business if we marry because of our love. It has nothing whatsoever to do with some supposedly clever woman, who objects strongly to such a union.

I felt like citing a few biblical men, who had a much greater difference in age than do the Frog and I.

I do not often get annoyed with stupid people, but that woman sure hit the button.

Of interest, she is married to a man, eleven years her junior, having married him when he reached eighteen.

It is your business whom you marry, and it was certainly none of that woman's business how old your wife is, anyway.

Pfft. Idiots. That's all to say about that.

I firmly believe that everyone can live the way they want as long as they don't harm anyone that way.

And having met you and the Frog ... well, what can I say? You very obviously love each other.

Yes, Queeny, you remember correctly. My job made me her bodyguard for a few years and when that need ended, she decided on the relationship.

That was a terrible thing for that woman to say. It is none of her business.

It sounds to me like your marriage was meant to be.

Re: Apparently I am sexist and vain..


I rather think so - I really had very little say in it. The Frog made it clear she would stay with me, no matter what, and would make very sure nobody else female came anywhere near. With so cute a Frog proposing, I could not refuse..

A person we know in one of the local supermarket who had heard the original comment told us a couple of days ago that somebody else had heard the woman and brought up her comment in the church.. The Pastor told her off severely.

I am still rather shocked at the anger she displayed.

Glad she was told off, in church even. That's irony right there. emoticon

I tend to believe that people do things for a reason. So maybe she saw such a relationship go bad, or maybe she was jilted as a girl ... that might do it.

I hope you can shrug it off. People are meddlesome and she obviously mistook your relationship.
