The takeaway Most important in choosing a wife, of course is compatibility: sexually, interpersonally, in values, plus whether they're kind and, of course, that you love each other: You feel great just being in a room with that person, you put each other on a pedestal, and are pleased to do things for that person.
I expand on those in the article, Should You Marry This Person?
Women just keep getting better at head games the older they get, their maturity peaks before pubity, then degrades til 14, then stays there until 65, then they get smart again. But that doesn't make the assertion "nonsense." As I wrote, factors other than hormones determine a good sex life, for example, having had experience.
I don't believe age is very important at all, I think what determines a great relationship is that both partners are of similar emotional maturity.In my marriage my ex way way more emotionally mature than I was (she was also 8 years older) In subsequent relationships I was the more mature, now I'm with someone of similar emotional maturity and it is plain sailing, no drams, no egos, no tension.Current research summarized in a BBC review, suggests this is So, on average, a man choosing a woman five years older is marrying his physiological equal. If an 80-year-old man is married to a 75-year-old, physiologically 70, even if she still loves him, she may feel he's an albatross and he may feel he's a burden.In contrast, if he had married someone five years older than him, they're more likely to be health peers and to fade away together.Even still, his oldest child is 18 and even she doesnt think it appropriate her father date me. So, if I'm...60, and ...he's 38, things might work. If two people are committed to each other that is the most crucial thing.
I knew in my heart that marrying my husband was a good fit.
If you'd feel more comfortable growing old with someone in similar shape to you, consider an older woman.
Marrying an older woman may even yield benefits fairly early in a marriage.
Earlier on life's conveyer belt, the typical 65-year-old man has at least one significant health issue.
If he's married to a 60 year-old woman, he's married to someone who, on average, is physiologically ten years younger and thus likely healthier and more vigorous, physically and mentally.
First of all, 5 years isn't that big of a difference. Its refreshing to see an article like this durring a time period where pubescent girls are used in sexualy provocative advertising.
