So, here we will look at age gap statistics, why women date older men, and whether age really matters.If you were to ask two people from, say, Belgium and Saudi Arabia, what they thought was an “acceptable” age difference when dating, then you’d obviously get very different answers based on cultural norms.Added to this, the younger one's parents will probably be getting bit rocky, too, and he or she might end up with three oldies to look after, as well as teenage children, a bit much for anyone, particularly if the carer is a woman who's going through the menopause as well.It's one thing to marry a father figure who takes care of you, but it's another to end up with a dribbling, cranky old wreck who you have to look after.When you reach your thirties, if you haven't found your single man with no baggage in your twenties, you have to be more open about a man with children.
Turns out, experts say compatibility between two people who just happen to have an age gap isn’t as unusual as we may think.
Indeed, the difference in their ages is even greater than the age of the MP's youngest child, 21-year-old Caroline.
They claim that the age difference hasn't even crossed their minds. But there are enormous disadvantages to marrying an older man.
I’m talking about dating older men 7 to 25 years their senior.
Despite how common younger women dating older men is, it is still a bit taboo.
