I have tried to post some insightful questions that avoid my personal doctrine or my self serving drivel to little avail. There are some things that I want to know others opinions, thoughts, doctrines....

But this question and other leading questions that are intened to lead us back to the same answers are way beyond ridiculous and cannot be real.

The only answer to this question can be 'yes' if you are legally allowed to. So, if this is real, go pay a lawyer if you cannot figure this out yourself, and God help that girl since you aren't man enough to keep this amongst yourself or your close friends.

Genesis 38:11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, Remain a widow at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren [did]. And Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.

SURE you can

Samuel: I do not see a problem in your statement.

I would, however, place a slight warning: If the four years mean you are 18 and she is 22, there may be a problem, not directly due to age, but because in those years people may change very much

If both of you are not at an age where much is changing in your character, then it would seem OK

Only adults should marry. If you are interested in a girl four years older than you, then you must be a young boy. It is probably illegal for you to get married anyway.

Wait until you are an adult and you have matured. When you are a man the question of marrying a woman four years older than you is not important.

samuel, it depends upon how old you are, how old are you?

And why would you be asking this question because 4 years isn't much of a difference in age differences...so you must be either 1) a minor? 2) and she must be an adult?

Are you asking, can I, a minor, marry a girl (adult) 4 years older than I? Please give us more facts before we continue to give you wrong responses and just say yes to you. Thank you.

Better to marry a woman than a girl. But, if you are both adults, age should not matter.

As long as the other varibles are correct, (i.e. all biblical, legal and even moral laws are correct and you are old enough to know what you are doing ), the age difference is of minor importance in your case.

Yes you can, Not a thing wrong with that.

Seriously? you can do what you want as long as both parties are ok with it, & both of you are equally yolked in God. My first husband was 8months younger then me, then my now & last husband is 4 yrs older.I always say as long as you are not breaking teh law with age, it doesn't matter.

Why not, if it's true love based in Christ? :)

Depends on how old you are.

If you're thinking about marrying a girl (as opposed to a woman), you are probably both too young for marriage.
