5 Reasons Why You Should Not Be In a Serious Relationship With Someone Twice As Young
They say that love is blind, but that doesn't mean love as to be stupid. Sometimes we do a lot of things in the name of love without thinking the whole thing through. We make commitments because of love, we make sacrifices because of love, we may even give up our own lives because of love. But what many blind lovers fail to realize is that love is not a one way street. In order for love to really work, both partners have to be in it whole heartedly, not 70:30, or 50:50, but 100:100. Having a full, honest and workable relationship has many factors associated with it. One of those factors is the age gap. They say age is just a number, but try skydiving at the ripe young age of 90 and you may just end up landing in a pre- dug grave. Age is not just a number, it is a factor which helps to determine the generation gap that is workable when we venture into serious relationships. People marry other people younger than them or older than them everyday, but those numbers may be workable. But what about a man who is 70 years old tieing the knot with a 25 year old beauty queen. Or a cougar being involved with a 22 year old jock even though she has began to use dentures? Do you think these relationships are workable? Or these younger folks are just love scammers and down right gold diggers? Well, for persons who believe age is just a number, here are the factual reasons why you should not be in a serious relationship with someone twice as young.
1. 98% Are Only In It For Your Money
It has been proven time after time that when much younger people venture into relationships with much older people, there has to be some financial advantage. Most if not all younger women who seek older men has already done all their background check on the individual. They know more about their bank books than the person themselves. If the older person was not wealthy, they would not have ventured down that path as there would be nothing there to benefit them. What these older persons must realize is that if the wealth runs out, so will that younger person. This is a simple equation, no money equals no love.
2. Your Health May Be At Risk
It is all good when you are say 40 and the other person is 20. You can go party away, drink all you want, go catch the biggest fish, do all what your age allows you to. But what happens when growth occurs, now you are 50 and that person is 30. That person will still want to do all the exciting things which that person age permits, but you are now entering your tone it down times. The younger person will want to drag you along and just may put your health at risk. Your heart does not get any younger and the older you get, the less strenuous activities you can endure.
3. The Inevitable Cheating
So you believe Viagra is all it takes to keep your young maiden in line? you better think again grandpa. People will always be people, young girls are attracted to some elderly men, but mostly studs which are in their age group. A 75 year old man has nothing sexually over a young 28 year old hormone hog of a man. Not only does the young man have a much more attractive body, he may have that natural stamina to satisfy the lady. In short, the younger person will eventually become attracted to another young person and then your young maiden or stud will eventually cheat on you.
4. They May Do Things To Speed Up You Kicking The Bucket

Can you imagine a child of say age 26 who has to call her father's new wife of age 25 her step mother? Many times a rift develop between family members and even though some will just accept it and move on. Other would reject it and will disassociate themselves from the Union. The reason being is that they believe that the person is too young and is only in it to gold dig, and once they dig enough, they will simply move on. Many of these family members have a right to think that way, because most of the time, that is exactly what happens.
