Men are getting into the trend of leaving their aging wives and opting for younger women. Some even order their wives through mail, and others put ads in magazines and on the internet. Many divorced and widowered older men prefer young women. Young men are not marrying as fast as they once did, so, many young women are choosing older men who are mostly settled, more mature, and often financially secure. Viagra has renewed the confidence of many older men, too. Middle aged and older women rarely get married these days because of this trend.
Some of these marriages seem to work, but some disadvantages are that the young woman may be a golddigger, she will likely be widowed early, and the aging man may require professional medical help and end up in a nursing home in his last years. There have been many cases where the discarded aging ex-wife had mercy, intervened, and took care of the ex-husband in his last days of illness. So, the old men had to jump across bridges that they burned. Beauty is a pretty flower. It will wither and die.
I deeply admire the aging celebrity couples, and the less famous, who still love each other and remain together even though the flowers are withering. That is true love, the only kind that lasts.
