The first couple that comes to mind when you think of an older woman and a much younger man as her spouse is Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Whilst the couple no longer is together, their 16-year age gap was quite the talk of the paparazzi for a while. Perhaps the level of experience and maturity the woman brings, along with the calm, composure and tolerance sprinkled in by the man. When two hearts meet and decide to follow a path in unison, all forms of convention seem to blur. A 17 year old girl dating a 31 year old man may raise an eyebrow but a 31 year old woman dating a 45 year old man probably wouldn’t.According to some, you can determine your appropriate dating age range by only dating someone who is within a fifth of your own age.
A 60 year old who is only just approaching retirement may be making plans for tackling all those ambitions that they haven’t had a chance to fulfil while working.Financial, health and economic factors also change as we grow older and these can sometimes make child rearing more difficult in later life.If having a family isn’t part of your future plans then there are examples of many happy and healthy couples who have age gaps of 10 – 20 years.Marrying a woman of the same age or one who is a little older has its own pros and cons too.Such a marriage ensures that the wife belongs to the same level of maturity and shares responsibilities, liabilities and challenges equally with you.
