The survey found men aged 20 to 29 prefer older women to younger ones, and women preferred a younger man as they age, according to Your Tango.
This contradicts the stereotype that all men are focused on finding a youthful partner, as these singles indicate a preference for a partner three to six years older than themselves.
To me, a boy who is two years young than me is acceptable.
I’ve had Chinese friends back home who’ve been disowned by their parents/cut off from the inheritance for disobeying them or for marrying someone their parents didn’t approve of.
Having said that, I let people be if they think otherwise. All of us make our own decisions and we are all the masters of our own lives.
To call these women “cougars” has a predatory connotation that is not accurate, considering these younger men are just as eager as the women to initiate the age-gap romance.
These women are not mother substitutes either who are “robbing the cradle,” but instead are an example of the modern day woman who knows what she wants and goes after it.
Why can a man marry a very young girl but a woman can't marry a very young boy? Love is not bounded by age, creed, nationality or race. This is based on ‘my own little world’ where love is a prerequisite for marriage and that personal decisions should be respected.
"Of course if is much more common for older men to marry much younger women, up to twenty years difference.........it is quite acceptable it would seem but for an older woman to marry a younger man is often seen as inappropriate....." Me too.A common rule of thumb when it comes to dating is that it’s OK to be interested in someone who is half your age, plus seven years.However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.But for a man to marry a woman who is 5 years older than him, is that inappropriate?do parents usually have objections to this type of relationship?A 2008 study published in the journal found women who are 10 or more years older than their partner report more satisfaction and relationship commitment compared to women who are the same age or younger than their partner.
