Do you think that a relation between a old woman and younger man can resist?

Why people like to acuse if woman are older as man...and never blame a older man who are involved in a relation with a younger girl? Can a relation like this, when he is younger to resist along the years? WHY DO YOU THINK THAT A YOUNGER MAN WANT IN HIS LIFE A OLDER WOMAN? DO YOU THINK THAT THEY CAN BE HAPPY, IF PEOPLE ARROUND WILL BLAME THIS RELATION?

It depends on the strength of the relationship.. A relationship in my opinion between a older woman and a younger man is the same as an older man with a younger woman.. It just seems like society will allow one way but not the other.. Its wrong.. If the couple sits there and listens to what others have to say; and continue to there is a good possibility the relationship will not last.. But if the couple just ignores what other say and just live life there is a good possibility that it will work out..

A woman must protect shes son, a man must protect his woman.If a man need a woman protection , maybe is better to have just his mother protection

Any relationship can stay alive for long years if they both have mutual unnderstanding, I heard younger men likes to go for older woman because they are experienced in all ways also they think that woman will be very supportive for them. But I do not like people getting married with such long gap in years. just 2 to 3 years are fine.

I think I would have to agree. I think that people need to look 10, 20 or 30 years down the road. Isn't one of the joys of marriage "growing old with someone". If you marry someone so much older than you aren't you robbing yourself of the "growing old" experience? I once had a man that was 20 years older than me pursuing me for a serious relationship. Although he was a wonderful man and could have made me happy for a time, the truth was that he would always be 20 years older than me. Consequently when I turn 50 and am still active, he would be 70 and slowing down. Age is just a number but its a rather important number in most cases.

Relationship between an older woman and younger man rarely happens. I don't exactly blame the young man for falling in love with the older woman because of some reason. Maybe the young man needs the security of love that only the older woman can give. Or maybe it's all about financial security. But if they really love each other then who are we to judge them?

If the couple love each other, I don't see any problem. I wouldn't care about people's opinion.

This is one reason I never tell my age, there is too much judgement upon women and their age. I have never looked or acted my age my whole life, I have always enjoyed being around younger people, I have people around me about the same age mothering me, I believe if you think too much about how old you really are you will be that age...think young,fresh and positive and you will be young...if a woman is young in the mind and heart there is nothing wrong with having a younger man...some of the younger men that have been in my life have seemeed older than me in many ways, they have looked older, and have been older within them selves...age is just a number and it is about time people stopped judging people by that number...we are what we let ourselves become...

I know of several relationships like this that worked out, and many that didn't. It just depends on the people involved.

I've noticed that too. I really don't know the reason why but like them I don't like a relationship with a younger man than a women.

As far as my opinion is concern. I don't see something wrong whether you are younger or older to engage in a relationship like that. What if you are younger that your wife or girl friend? What if they blaming you love that woman? Think about this my friend. Those people around you, are the one responsible for that marriage? Are they the one who live with that women? Isn't that you, who love that women to live with her? Yes! You can be happy to live with her, even she is older than you. The important things on this, is that you love each other. Not what the people say around you?

I don't think age matters at all in a relationship. It is how they get along and whether they have similar interests that makes for a lasting relationship.

I know a lot of people who has a older man as a partner rather than an older woman.I do not think this makes much difference to the relationship until other people comment about their age and make an issue of it.I would be thinking on the terms off in ten years time would he be looking for a younger person.Happy Mylotting.

I think they can be happy as long as they love each other. They should not let others tell them it can not work they are the ones that can only tell if they want to date each other or if they want to get married. They need to follow their hearts and do what is right for them.

Well, scientifically it is believed that a woman is mentally older than a man the same age that they are so that is why women marry older guys. But I think if two people are committed and love each other, their relationship will work out regardless of whether they are disparities in age, religion or ethnicity.

No. can t resist, and i will try to explain why. Younger man all time will be sure that he is more bigger as advantages, because he offer his age. And older woman will think that every day, every second he will find a younger woman, and usual this is the result. I will say that a younger man don t deserve a older woman, because will come a dy when for sure he will offence she, in a way or other. A younger man don t know to protect his woman, he wait protection from she...and don t forgot that she is woman, younger or older, she is woman and wait from shes man love . carring, protection...AND A YOUNGER MAN IS VERY SELFISH, NEVER KNOW TO OFFER ALL THIS, HE WANT ALL THIS, WHEN CHOICE A OLDER WOMAN.

I"ve actually heard negative comments on both sides of this. Personally as long as they are both adults then I think it should be no one else's business whom they choose to date.

I know a couple who's like that,. And that's true, that kind of relationship existed. Love is love, you can blame them but you can't separate them. They're happy with each other and nothing can change that.

we have this trend in the family. My mom is older than my dad for just a few months. My brother is married to a women 3 years his senior and my sister is married to my brother-in-law who is 2 years younger than her. It seems that the women in our family is older,lol i don't know if this will be applicable to me as well:)

I've known of a few relationships like these and most ended in the younger man being unfaithful and eventually there is a divorce. I think it depends on many factors such as how many years difference, health issues and if there truely is real love involved. I am seeing someone two years younger than me and we get along better than my soon to be exhusband and I did and the ex is 7 years older than me!
