HALF HER AGE
February 15, 2017 10:56am CST
Would you date or marry a man who is -say - fifteen, twenty or thirty years younger than yourself? .Some women, from forty-five years up say it is difficult to find a suitable man in their age group. Most are already married or - if single - they seem to prefer younger women, so where does that leave the single older woman? The other thing is - society is never really hard on the older man who dates or marries a younger woman, but if a woman does the the same with a younger man , she is viewed in a different light. What are your thoughts on the subject?

I'm spotting some kids. Who knows. As I'm currently 21. I guess older women dating younger men aren't well seen nowadays but people will be more open-minded. It's only a matter of habit, I think. Such couples aren't likely to have children, but that's up to them. Young men also prefer older women, as long as two people are interested in each other, I see no problem.
I guess I have to disagree to that having children part. I know women in 50s can still bear a child. But my belief is when God bless you with a child it does not goes with the science calculation of age.. There are women who married young but not able to bore a child. It is still under God's mercy and favor. God bless.

I am agree this .Some relationship is created by God itself. So there age difference no matter.Now a days some older women are also dating with younger boys. Man also wants some change and dating with girls of younger ages. I think a main reason is productivity.Men productivity ends with his dying. But women productivity ends after 40-50. Overall charm matters more and love is blind.
I really don't know. But you can't say if its good or not because we all know that Love always works in mysterious ways. I know someone who are 15years older than the man they married and still have a happy life with them. I think the best answer to that is.... Happy marriage is when you marry the right person that God has created only for you.... It is hard to view that when you get 40 they are just turning 25... But as I saw one of the people I know they don't really look older to the men they married they are happy and contented.... Maybe because they are really for each other.

You are right it is considered more acceptable in society for men to marry much younger women then it is for women to marry much younger men. I personally would not want a huge age gap but what others do in their lives does not bother me.

I personally say it is none of my business. If it makes them happy, then they need to do what is right for them. You are right there is a double standard. I personally do not know why so many feel the need that they have to get married in general. There is no law that says we have to get married. That is my opinion anyway.

If both individuals are mature adults capable of choosing, then age is not really a factor, if they love each other. It's their relationship and other people need to mind their own business! Now if the it's children being forced into marriage, that's a completely different discussion.
