i'm 21, my bf is 20, but my parents won't allow me to marry a younger man...so is there anyway, i can use the idea of general relativity to slow down my aging relative to my bf, so that we both reach 25 at the same time?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

here's what i know so far:

i understand that if i'm one floor above my friend on earth surface, i would observe my time runs faster than my friend: Tfriend=Tme[1-(gh/c^2)], with g being 9.8 and h being the distance between us. this is all i understand so far but i can't relate it to the original question. perhaps i need to move closer to the center of the earth to slow down my aging??

any help would be greatly appreciated.
