Do you have a trophy wife?

Today my daughter was mistaken for my wife. Now, I have a trophy wife (we've been married almost 25 years and she's a year older than me) but my 15-year-old has never been mistaken for my wife before. She was not amused.

Have you any age mis-match anecdotes?

This thread is useless without pictures.

I mistook my wife for a hat once. And then somebody wrote a book about me.

Re: Do you have a trophy wife?

I wonder how many men would seriously claim to have a "trophy wife"?

I wonder how many women would seriously declare themselves to be a "trophy wife".

Shouldn't say this since it isn't politically correct, but their trophy wives *could* be special olympics trophies....

Re: Do you have a trophy wife?

I'm not a trophy wife but because dh has been gray since he was 18 he's always looked older. Many times when I was in my 30's I was mistaken for his daughter, there were always the raised eyebrows when the mistake was corrected. Doesn't happen so much any more

I hope that your wife reads this. What a sweet thing to say!

That's a little different than what I asked. But let's count it.

. . . That's 1.

Re: Do you have a trophy wife?

In the spirit of the original post:

I've always looked young for my age. I'm also short (5'3"). Years ago, I was dating a woman who was not only 7 years older, but also 5'9" and loved to wear heels.

So we're on a romantic getaway weekend when a shop owner looks at her and says that she has a cute little brother. At that point, I lean up and kiss her on the lips and say, "You're the best, Sis!"

The shop owner looked mortified. It was classic!

Family values are important. My dad is from WV. He is the black sheep of his family since he graduated from High School and didn't meet my Mom at a family reunion.
