Now it's seen a lot of such marriages are happening where the groom is younger than the bride. What do you think is a good combination for marriage young man older woman or young woman older man?

The idea of marriage is largely for procreation, that is, if you are straight person and propcreation is only possible within a certain age bracket. Am not being a male chauvinist here, but you can still achieve the cardinal reason for marriage even if an exceedingly old man, say 65 marries a young lady of 20! but the reverse is not only unfair to the to the young man, but is also defeatist to the purpose of marriage.However, if true love is in it and we know that true love knows no boundaries of age or race, then so be it, the parties can go a head, but not with my approval though!

You are right about the procreation part. But i think when there is age difference between spouses there would be inseccurity too.

I can't talk I am with a man that is 5 yrs 9 mos younger then me. We have a 6month old baby together, he also took me knowing I had 2 other children. so the age don't make the relationship it the individual couple.

Well, i am happy that you have a good marriage. Infact i am seperated but courted by a man who is more than ten years younger than me. And said no to his proposal as i am inseccured about the relationship.

I don't really care about whether the groom is younger or older than the bride as long as they love each other.

I don't think age really matters if the love is true. Both combinations have their own advantages and disadvantages. The society has really evolved now, and men rarely make a hassle about their women taking on larger roles, both in life, and in their relationship. I'm sure it does not really matter.

well, it depends if they look good together... i mean what if the man is just 24 and the woman is 60.. oh my gosh... i would never support that.. its okay to have a partner 5 years older or younger than you...

I agree with you.I too would never support such a relationship if there is more than 5 years of difference.

if there is perfec adjustment and love, its not at all a problem if u say the conventional way, older man, younger woman, its we who have made this arrangement. so if anybody go beyond this its still ok i think if they are comfortable themselves. hope my answer is justified.

hi lovelydame whether it's the groom younger than the bride or the bride younger tha the groom, my believe is there will never be a perfect match, because simply, human beings are imperfect. When 2 people come into a marriage, they have to work together hand in hand to build up and strengthen that sacred bond. Whether difference in age gap will play a part to what extend really depends on the maturity level of individuals and what sacrifice each is willing to give.

Hi betshopboy, You are absolutely right there about the maturity level of the couple and how much they are willing to give in the relationship.
