Islam doesn't regulate age difference in marriage. You can marry the person you find acceptable, as long as he is Muslim. Society is much more accepting of older husband younger wife than the reverse, so social attitudes shouldn't be a problem.

12 years is really good age difference. Since women work hard and raise kids, they usually start looking older than their husbands. I have seen this happening with even the pretty girls who take care of themselves. Mostly married in 30s and 40s are running after girls who are 15 to 20 years younger than them. So with 12 years of age difference, you have some chance at happiness: your husband will remain interested in you for a few years at least.
