Sometimes lfind it difficult for me totrust what people say, that a man must always be older than his woman. what if you found someone you love and happens to be younger than you. Can you let the true love goes just because of what people believes.

I have had both older and younger men in my life. I can't really say one is better than the other. Each has it's own appeal. I have to say the younger men tend to break my heart more. Maybe they're more carefree, or careless, depend on how you look at it.

my mother in law is 20 years older than my father in law and they have been married for over 20 years, my father in law was only 19 when he met her and took on 6 kids and may i say they are happy. age does not matter it depends on the people and if they make it an issue.

The norm is a man either has to be a bit older or the same age, but even one year younger raises eyebrows. Why? That's how people wanted it to be, but two to three years in a relationship wouldn't matter, which means the man being younger two to three years, more than this is an exception. When that is the case the man might not be the top bread winner, but as the number gets higher it's better if the man is older. A fifty year old man and a thirty year old woman could just do fine, but when it's the other way around, it could work too, but it's not the norm.
