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.
But there are reasons men should consider older women as a potential marriage partner.
I will admit I'm biased: My wife is five years older than I am and we've been contentedly married for almost 40 years now. Alfred Kinsey's classic work on sexuality concluded that men's sexual hormones peak at 18, women's in their early 30s.
You may more likely find a wife you'll be contented with long-term if you don't limit your options to people of your age and younger.
I expand on those in the article, Should You Marry This Person?To be honest though, I'm seeing more men date women 20 years younger then them. Maybe thats a bit harsh or "closed" minded but really i put the same belief on women dating men 20 years younger as well.My rule of thumb is, if the person im with could technicaly have concieved a child the same as me then they are too old and if I, by age, could have concieved a child the same age as the younger prospect then he is to young. Some people in excellent health are biologically 10 years younger than their average age peers. Assuming two adults, the older person's age, divided by 2, plus 7.The problem is the older they are, the quicker they hit their sexual peak and the quicker they start declining.It sucks when a woman is in her mid-late 40s and you are all ready to go and she has no interest.
