Ideal relationships between men and women should have about 10 year age gap


I think it's that males should marry women 10 or more years their junior. I also think women should shoot for this too(older men). I don't think it's an accident that for much of history, that was the norm. The benefits are myriad.

1)Odds are that generally, a women 10 years jr will remain competitively attractive to their hubby for the duration(with obvious exceptions).

2)Men tend to be less established younger and so, women benefit from marrying a guy who is more "set".

3)Whether people like it or not, men are generally considered attractive BY WOMEN at later ages than is the reverse. Women get pissed about this fact as if it's some male conspiracy but men aren't the ones deciciding that it's typically attractive to 25 year old women. Women are doing that. And, I don't think that's an accident either. I mean hell, VERY few 35 year old women even find someone like Justin Bieber interesting. Meanwhile, tons of 25 year old women ogle the frick out of 45 year old actors.

Just look at this site. Post a pic of 40+ actresses that actually ARE attractive and many young guys in here go....."meh". The reverse aint true!!

4) Men mature at a much slower rate than women, so going for girls about 10 years younger is about "right".

So if I wanted to get married at 25, I should look at high school sophomores. No thanks.

I am 15 years older than my wife and I think that age difference has really helped our marriage through some things.

re: Ideal relationships between men and women should have about 10 year age gap


Disagree. I wouldn't go past 5-7 years younger than myself.

I'm currently 37. Marrying someone in her mid-20s isn't a good idea. Maybe for me, but not for her. One problem is she's going to want children. As much as I would like that, I would be a first time father at 40. So I'll be in my 60s and have kids in college. When the last one graduates high school and leaves home, and we finally have the house to ourselves, I'll be close to Social Security age. That isn't fair to her.

Best thing to do depends on the man's age. If he's in his 20s or early 30s, someone close to the same age is best. If he's still single in his mid to late 30s, he should find someone a few years older because it's too late for children.

As far as the young guys saying "meh" to hottie actresses, this IS the OT. Everyone here kicks Victoria's Secret models out of bed.

Just used 25 for effect. I'm 22 now, and there's no chance I'm giving this life up in 3 years.

I think that was covered in my #2, but yeah.

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.

I think 5 years is a perfect gap. At least it's been perfect to me.

I actually disagree with pretty much every asserion but most importantly, I'd say the point of marriage is for it to last and my assertion is that some age gap helps that.

And, my assertion is that BOTH parties are more likely to remain attracted to each other for longer.

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.

I agree with this, though I think 10 years is a little much. 5 years is a good length. And then men should have to wait til they are 30 to marry. I think 30 is a very acceptable age for a man to marry, but a 20 year old woman isn't quite ready.

Have a buddy get married a second time. First family kids are 23 and 21. Second family, 1 years old and he is 50.

My Grandpaw was 37 and Grandmaw was 16 on my Moms side.

The wife is 3 years younger then me.
