No one can tell you if the relationship is going to last - there's just no way to predict that, regardless of the ages of the people involved.

Whether or not age matters really depends on a whole bunch of factors. Five years is a huge difference if one person is 18 and the other is 13, for example, but it may not feel like such a big difference with you and your boyfriend. You're both legal adults, and as long as there's good communication and you don't feel like the age difference results in a power imbalance, then you're likely just fine.
