Older man and younger woman relationships-In sickness and in health
Younger women dating older men, no matter how ridiculous the idea may seem to us, are a growing reality of today. People are more looking for what they want rather than what societal norms want them to do. Ever watched ‘Autumn in New York’? It embodies a combination of emotions of pain, anguish yet it displays the beauty and wonder that an older man and a younger woman relationship have to go through. So you might call them the ‘trophy wives’ but they surely are finding their older significant other to be more tolerant, respectful and understanding towards them than the younger men.
In the United States, on an average the bride is about 2.3 years younger than the bridegroom. It is obviously not that women cannot find their age mates, but the majority of the population does want to. The older man with a younger woman is seen to fulfill the needs of each other; where one is looking for a caring, more life experiences so as to learn from them and the financial support while the other is looking for the younger women to bring out a sense of youth in them. Since younger woman dating an older man is looked down upon it and people have a negative attitude about it, the two people have to be ready for the challenge that such relationship brings. But again, every relationship has its share of problems. Although some would believe that age difference in relationships would only exacerbate the typical relationship problems, but it may not be true for all cases. As in any relationship, age can become a matter of figures if ultimately the older man and younger woman are in a mutual consent to be with each other. So people think whatever they want to and let them not stop you from want you want to do. If life is offering you a chance to be with a person you like, then grab it while you can.
