Talk To Steph: Ladies, Can You Date And/Or Marry A Younger Man?

Ladies, get in here! Today’s topic is one that is always surrounded by a lot of controversy, but I would really like to know what you think.

Many times, people say things like “Do you know that she is older than he is?”, “She is dating her younger brother’/son’s age mate”, “I can’t marry a man that is not at least 5 years older than me.” I know of someone who refused to continue a relationship the moment she realized she was a few days older than the guy.

Our culture is generally not open to the idea of women marrying younger men and vice versa. The saying “Age is just a number” does not necessarily hold true in this part of the world when it comes to the older woman/younger man dynamic.

Does the age difference really determine whether a marriage would succeed or not. There are examples of women that married older men who have successful marriages today; and there are women that married older men whose marriage did not turn out so well.

So ladies, do you see yourself marrying someone who is younger, or better put, can you marry a younger man?

Please share your thoughts on this.
