Dating a woman 20 years younger
You guys might be happy right now but she’s going to know her entire 20’s as a mother and a wife, and I have a feeling she’s probably going to regret this as she gets older.
It’s also hard to ignore how easily it is to manipulate younger people especially if she believes she’s in love with you.

You started dating your girlfriend when she was 19 and you are/were currently raising daughters in the same exact range. When I was 11 my parents got divorced and shortly after my mom (then 38) introduced her new partner - who was 19 at that time.
It's very unlikely this is a balanced relationship (that would be an exception to an exception to an exception), and you've said no word of the opinion of your daughters. You're right, you're both consenting adults. However, you began dating her when she was a teenager. Is she independent or does she defer to you on decisions? We're from a small town as well and EVERYONE got freaking mad about it, even people who we initially didn't even know.
All of this makes dating more and more complex as we get older. Still, most of them fail miserably, for the exact same reasons that I think Penelope is suggesting.

But now that I’m older I have a lot of regret and resentment and wish it never happened.Whenever I see these posts with dramatic age differences, especially when one party is so young, I just hope they make it to a point where they can appraise the situation for what it is one day.There’s probably a lot of things that she wants only because you want them, and she doesn’t know the difference between that and wanting things by herself.There are times when these relationships work, but I feel like it is a rare occurrence.
So an eighty year old Jewish man goes to confession. Tell us about any non-violent conflict you have experienced; give us both sides of the story, and find out if you're right, or you're the asshole.
