    Overcoming the Fear of Getting Dumped for a Younger Partner

    Today’s topic came from our audience. We got a message from an age gap couple with a large age difference. The older partner has a fear that the younger partner will leave him for a younger man. The question is how does the older partner get over worrying that his or her younger partner will leave him for someone his or her own age?
    We discuss our experience and thoughts and hope that we offered some value on the issue.
