Katy, there really is value to you, as well as kindness to myself and other readers, in editing down such a long story, to help you recognize the most important points in it.
As I keep saying, diferences in maturity and interests and activities may make a difference within relationships ; mere differences in age much less so. This is well illustrated in the ludicrous comments of his dad about his wife being an "older woman" -one year older than him !
If you potentially want to stay together, see a couples counsellor together and explore whether this is realistic. Both of you sound immature in regard to relationships, and he sounds FAR too firmly under his family's thumb to have an independent and lasting relationship with anyone
