I am more shocked about all these men stating "women age faster especially after childbirth" abeg stop that rubbish.

If a woman takes good care of herself (exercise, eat healthy and emotionally sound) childbirth will not age her. I have carried two pregnancies and I look better than most women who have not given birth. I take good care of my body. Everyone I have met do not believe I have children.

a pictorial evidence would convince me. every woman says this: "i look good, i look fit." i have a feeling that someone like you is about 22 stones at least. grin cheesy

Yes, women prefer older men...

from this thread alone you can see it's not all women.


But it depends on boys your age you meet... maybe boys your age in your neighbourhood are certified jerks.. my cousin is 26, women his age and younger feel intimidated around him...

your cousin is one in many.

I for one, all the ladies I have been with recently are older, funny thing, they don't know my age, they don't bother to ask...

that's to prove that not all women prefer older men


Another thing,most women my Age I know are too needy, talk to them today, tomorrow they start saying "I love you" and thinking marriage...

I don't know what to make of this. Are you saying older women are better?

The reason why women Basically marry older men is because older men are invariably more successful especially financially...

one reason. Among many others.

Funny thing is, once you are established and responsible, they assume you are more matured...

but if you aren't,with a little time the immaturity begins to show

Dis age thing is funny, I'd agree with the man who said it is just a number....

sometimes

My Dad was just one and a half years older than my mum cool cool you can't always help who your child will marry.did i also add that I was born into a Muslim home(not that my husband converted me) but my parents would have definitely preferred a Muslim guy.
Re: To Marry A Man 10years Older by Nobody: 9:38pm On Sep 05, 2014
Personally,I dig older guys lets say from 4 to 10 years older...For a person of my kind,I wouldn't tolerate my age mate because I know the kinda shows "they" run at the supposed age...



The thing is,I like someone with experience,someone I can learn from (I'm not saying there's ntin to learn from my mates but I want more) and not the regular "xkuagtdagmtjpa" we see these days.

10 years isn't that bad but I prefer someone closer to my age, 5 years difference is perfect for me.


This women age faster than men talk doesn't hold water anymore, it's been long I saw a woman that looks older than her husband, some men even looks so old that you wonder how that pretty young thing accepted to marry them,oh..the pocket I guess.

alutacontinua: You might wanna give you's age-ranges to get a balanced analysis.

e.g. a 30 yr old lady and 40 yr old man -95% workable
19yr old lady and 29 yr old man - 55% workable
16yr old lady and 26 yr old man -0% workable (child abuse aka pedophollia).



Older men rock though kiss

Dey there cheesy
I was once in love with a guy 12 years older, cut him loose cos he messed up sad but I loved him like tomorrow no dey embarassed . When I told my mum about him, she just went on and on about the age difference-in my mind, I was just laughing cos with the way I loved that guy, I knew she wouldn't have been able to stop me. The woman prays too much though, maybe na her prayers make the guy mess up like that sad


Anyways, buky buky, if your daughter is in love, na chill pill you go swallow tongue

This is for Buky Buky and others:

In this day and age if your daughter brings home a prospective husband who is 10 years older than her you will tell her she can't marry the person? And you think she would dump him because of your opinion? I think not. Do people still choose spouses for their children?

Can I ask why it is such a taboo for you I.e the age difference?

I kinda see the obvious apprehension at a certain age I.e my 18 yr old dating a 30 yr old BUT I have come to realise that these things are not cast in stone. I have friends who married as age mates and are divorced, I have ones who married that age difference and are also divorced.I know of peers who seem happy together and also that age difference who are also happy together.

I feel the most important prayer is that they choose the right one who will complement them to be who God wants them to be and will treat them right.

It's the basic reason and not one reason among many orders....


And age is no sign of maturity, look around you, you'd see a lot of men your age or even younger who are very mature, you would also see a lot of older children.... maturity is not measured by number of years lived....

It is called preference.

If God made an older man for me, the first thing He would have done is change who I am to fancy an older man. Asking me to marry an older man with my current mindset is martial sucide

I do not know God's plan for my kid and I am willing to accept in the end. But naturally, hell no!

A 30 yr old that comes to look for my 18yr old wants to be castrated.

I also know that age difference has nothing to do with martial success.

I just like them young grin

P.S.: If I married at 25 to a 37yr olf man (12yrs) our kid will be 2yrs when he ll be 40. The older the diff, imagine the age of hubby. @50, he will be going to PTA meeting in primary&jnr secondary when his mates are celebrating their children's matric/convocation.

If a man is to marry young and maintain such difference, them we are talking pedo.
