Can You Marry A Man Twice Your Age? - See Photos Of Ladies Who Married Men Far Older Than Them

There are may reason why you ladies such as yourself like older men. Most of the time its due to the lack of a strong male role model. A Lot of times its because older men are much more stable than younger men.

Ideally the wife should be 10 to 20 years younger than the husband for them to age together as man ages slowly compared to woman due to hormonal reasons. Also, the popular opinion is to follow the rule of half plus seven. E.g, if husband is 40 years old ,then ideal age of wife should be (1/2 of 40)+7 = 27years.

It’s well known that men tend to marry women younger than themselves, a pattern that leads to increasingly unbalanced male-to-female gender ratios as you move up to older and older age groups. Men also have a lower life expectancy than women, leaving women in the 75-and-up age bracket with fewer and fewer choices of heterosexual partners.

However, It doesn’t matter. Age is just a number. All that matters is that they love each other. A lady can marry a man who’s older or younger than her. A man can also marry a woman who’s older or younger than him. What really matters is that they love and understand each other.

For security reasons and a long lasting marriage, the gap shouldn’t be too much between the man and the woman. It’s always better for the man to be older than the woman, because if the reverse is the case, a lot of factors might not be able to stand the test of time. They might say love is all that matters, but when reality hits, everything will easily fall apart. We should ‘shine our eyes very well’.

The reality is, while an age gap may bring about some challenges for couples, so long as couples work at their relationship, age should be no barrier.

Well, below are photos of couples whose husbands are far older than them
