The world has changed a lot and it keeps changing. The past was far beyond the present. And the changes are quite obvious.

Older Woman, Younger Man in Marriage

Centuries ago, men normally searched for women at least in their age or mostly younger than them. This is due to the norms in the past, making women subject for men. Men in the past ruled and dominated, making them the authority at home as well as in the society. At that time woman’s opinion are rarely accepted. And mostly, they are rejected and taken without importance.

Since people evolved in their way of living, concepts, views and approaches also transcend. The present turns out to be the total opposite of the past at times.

Today, relationships and even marriages is assimilated adversely by most conservatives. And one of the issues which are commonly misunderstood is the marriage between an older woman and a younger man.

Unavoidably true, man nowadays tend to look for woman older than them. A few contradict but the trend is unstoppable. In America and in some parts of Europe, the case is not already taken as an issue. Recently, a few in some parts of Asia embraces it.

Among them, thousands of couple are believed to be successful. It proves that huge age gaps and age differences between spouses doesn’t really affects the success in marriage.

How many old people act immature? How many older husbands pass their burdens to their younger wives? And how many marriages turn out happy even in the huge differences? It’s the understanding and love that matters not the said differences.

Perhaps, the world has opened its eyes and consider things even if it’s far beyond the norms. I for one agree that age doesn’t matter but the maturity of the person does.

My thought is always that if two people mesh, the number that they carry as an age indicator does not matter. Can you get along and do you care about each other? Nice piece. Take care.

In the good old days men were considered the head of the family and the provider. Today, they depend more on the woman to provide for the family while they enjoy life so why should the women not be acknowledged as the head of the family and obviously there should be no objection to the head of the family being older. Nice write though!

I'm 6 1/2 years older than my partner, Brian. Women generally live 5 years longer than men, so it does seem reasonable for older women to date/marry younger men, but as mentioned above, when you meet mr/mrs right, who cares what the age difference :D Excellent article.
