The general norm is the guy being older than the woman, but as the years go on it is more acceptable now for it to be the other way round....what are your thoughts on it?
I totally agree!but as the years go on it is more acceptable now for it to be the other way round....
I am not against marrying somebody older than you. Nothing is wrong if younger guy will marry a girl older than him. It is just a matter of communication and the maturity of the man. Because, he needs to be mature as the husband is the head of the family. Personally, I knew somebody who married a woman 20 years older than him. His wife and his wife used to be a classmate when they were in High school. They a good family and I didn't see any problem at all. Marrying a woman or a man older than you and living together for a lifetime is better than marrying a younger one and ended with a divorce.The general norm is the guy being older than the woman, but as the years go on it is more acceptable now for it to be the other way round....what are your thoughts on it?
Yes, right. If you are looking for a lifetime relationship it should be based with love, respect and commitment and only for the looks. Sometimes, we were fooled with outside appearance and jump into a relationship because we thought that he/she is the right one for us because of the appearance.Its trendy right now for older women to go after younger men. I think its the last phase of the 'sexual revolution'. Its all over the TV these days with shows like 'Cougar Town'. Personally I don't think it matters as long as the two people love each other and neither is taking advantage of the other for any reason. I'm more attracted to women my own age just because I can relate to them the best. I find younger women physically attractive, but if they are immature its a huge turn off.
Yeah it's true, people get lonely and want a partner, especially when they get older. As long as the couple feels that it's alright for them to have a 20 year age gap, and can cope with all the societal pressures as well as family pressure, then I think it is their choice regarding whom and when to marry.I have a relative who married a 60-year-old man, but she was already 40 at that time. Of course, talks and a lot of why's circulated for some time. They just simply answered, "Aside from being in love, who among us doesn't need company, especially when we grow old?"
