Well, I did. If both the boy and girl are old enough to legally marry, there is no reason why they cannot. My wife is 5 years older than I am. We think it should work out OK- we have been married for 45 years.

In some countries marrying your first cousin is illegal. You should check your local statutes on this matter. There is also good biological evidence why this should be discouraged.

Can a girl marry a boy who 10 years younger than her?

The boy must be at least 17 years old in order to get married, (in most places), which means the girl can be no younger than 27. If the boy is at least 17 he can marry a girl who is many years older than him. The girl can marry any boy, (provided she is at least 17, and he is at least 17 years old). As long as both meet the minimum age requirement to be married, the age difference is not important.

Can a Gujarati girl marry a boy who is younger than her or does her religion prevent her from marrying him if boy is not Gujarati nor Indian?

Generally Indian culture does not permit an Indian girl to marry a boy younger than her, nor a boy who is not of the same religion and country. But its up to the girl to decide; she can choose who she loves or she can choose to obey her family. "Gujrati" is not a religion hence the question of "gujrati religion" allowing a girl to marry a younger boy does not arise. Culturally, girls generally marry boys older than them & of same nationality by birth but there is no bar otherwise.
