Not really. It's two different things. Even if he's mature and responsible, a man in his early 20s is at the beginning of his career and hasn't had time to save up a nest egg.


True enough. That's why I said yeah.

Oh. And I said 10 yrs was ideal. 7 wouldn't be bad.

Not so sure here. I don't want Mrs. Bestbank to be in the prime of her life and stuck with an old man for a husband. It's a bum deal for her


Interestingly, I've found(at 15 yrs older than my wife) that it keeps my arse in the gym. This is likely a main reason for why I'm 46 and typically hover around 12% bodyfat(little better in the summer, little worse in the winter). I can run a mile at about 7:00 and even at only 160lbs, bench around 275. I suspect that if my wife as an out of shape 46 year old, I'd be lazier. That's just being honest about myself.

Oh. And I've a 5 and a 3 year old!!!

I prefer older women. My SO is 6 years older than me. She has had plenty of time to prep her nest egg, which I currently get to enjoy. She looks younger than me, but acts like an adult. The acting like an adult thing is a huge benefit when compared to my previous relationships.

10 would be a bit much. I'd go 4-7 at most.

I could do that 15-20 years ago. Doubt I could now...but I do have more upper body strength and flexibility than I did back then.

My younger niece is 5. I can keep up with her just fine. I could certainly handle kids and a younger wife right now. I'd just be too worried about the future.

maintaining any serious relationship with a women over ~30 is a goof. pump and dump.

prime age is 17-21 (no pedo); by 27 most are approaching the wall; at 30 no thanks jeff.

Dude. While it is certainly true that many women seem to throw in the towel by age 30, not all do.

People on this board have seen pics of my wife(no face of course). She seemed to get pretty solid reviews(except for those that don't like tats).

Your wife at 20 > your wife at 35 --- Only a delusionist would suggest otherwise.

No hate, just truth.

Well, not to be too obvious here, but that was sort of the point of my OP if you think about it.

When I'm 50, my wife(at 35) will still be a hell of a catch for ME.

I mean ya know, since EVERYONE is going to age and this thread is about the age gap helping marriage last.

Oh. And actually, I'd say my wife eat 20 was not > than at 31(now). She was too damned teeny then(weight 97 lbs at 5'4"). I married her at 23 and even then, she was only about 102. But, she sort of found religion as far as exercise goes and her playing weight these days is about 112.

I'm digging the 112 better. Oh, and she's damned sure better in bed now for the record.

But yeah. Her peak of looks plus talent was probably 27.

sounds like you got the right idea and you have an open relationship as I recall?

doubt id ever settle down though, if i did, it would be when im 35+ and she is under 23.

Open? No. Open is, you go frick whom you want, I go frick whom I want. We don't work that way. But you're basically correct.

38/23 here. And, while I admit I think that's the top end for gaps, it's been BY FAR the easiest relationship of my life. I mean, it's not fricking close.

I'm 2 years older than my husband. Works for us.

I hope that continues. Really. I do.

I'm merely asserting that the generality is that an age gap I speak of increases likelihood of both success(lasting) AND happy success.

I hope you both do well, but the reality is that in THE VAST MAJORITY of cases, a 40 year old man is going to be more physically attractive to other women than a 42 year old woman is to other men.

There are obviously exceptions. Many. I'm simply speaking as a general rule.
