It used to be fairly common for a man in the higher levels of society who is nearly or even over 30 to marry a 17-18 year old gal. In fact, in the "classic style" romance novel, that was the norm. That was because a man had to be a proven success before father's would let their daughters marry a man. Also because it was expected that a younger man would do some "sowing his wild oats" in his youth and be ready to settle down and start looking for an heir about then. Girls, on the other hand, would be wanting to have their children while they were still young. So, while it isn't as common as it once was, it does still happen, but now they call those sort of women "trophy wives."

If I am going for a sincere and serious relationship, I think I can go for dating a girl who is about 10 yrs younger than me. But the thing is, she needs to be mature enough to match my maturity level. If we dont stand equal with brains, a relationship can never survive! Physical thing comes afterwards. But anybody more than 10 yr younger than me, I think I would avoid such a relationship. It doesnt appear good to me.
