I fell in love at 15….with a 25 yr old. Most times, this would not work…but for us it did. He understood where I was in life. He added to my life rather than take away. He let me learn and experience life as a teen…wisely knowing all I still had to learn. With this freedom, I was able to grow and love freely. With this, he also quietly taught. I was living a grown up life at 15 with the freedom to also be a teen. It helped me grow into a strong independent young woman. So we dated for the next six years before we married!
