Default IF Statement

I have created a form where a customer can fill their details, and the following is the code i have used to process this form. Currently i have got code that makes sure that all fields are filled in, but i was hoping to change this.

If a customer fills in the date field for time lived at original address and if this is over 3 years then the fields for previous address and 2nd previous do not need to be filled in. Is this possible?

if (!isset($_POST['submit']) || $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] != "POST") {
    exit("<p>You did not press the submit button; this page should not be accessed directly.</p>");
} else {
    $exploits = "/(content-type|bcc:|cc:|document.cookie|onclick|onload|javascript|alert)/i";
    $profanity = "/*** REMOVED BY ADMINISTRATOR ***/i";
    $spamwords = "/(viagra|phentermine|tramadol|adipex|advai|alprazolam|ambien|ambian|amoxicillin|antivert|blackjack|backgammon|texas|holdem|poker|carisoprodol|ciara|ciprofloxacin|debt|dating|porn)/i";
    $bots = "/(Indy|Blaiz|Java|libwww-perl|Python|OutfoxBot|User-Agent|PycURL|AlphaServer)/i";

    if (preg_match($bots, $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'])) {
        exit("<p>Known spam bots are not allowed.</p>");
    foreach ($_POST as $key => $value) {
        $value = trim($value);

        if (empty($value)) {
            exit("<p>Empty fields are not allowed. Please go back and fill in the form properly.</p>");
        } elseif (preg_match($exploits, $value)) {
            exit("<p>Exploits/malicious scripting attributes aren't allowed.</p>");
        } elseif (preg_match($profanity, $value) || preg_match($spamwords, $value)) {
            exit("<p>That kind of language is not allowed through our form.</p>");

        $_POST[$key] = stripslashes(strip_tags($value));

    if (!ereg("^[_a-z0-9-]+(.[_a-z0-9-]+)*@[a-z0-9-]+(.[a-z0-9-]+)*(.[a-z]{2,6})$",strtolower($_POST['email']))) {
        exit("<p>That e-mail address is not valid, please use another.</p>");

    $recipient = "myemail@domain.com";

    $subject = "You have a new order";

        $message = "Order Form: \n";

    } else {
        echo "<p>Sorry, there was an error and your mail was not sent. Please find an alternative method of contacting the webmaster.</p>";
