jpcmc....A much discussed topic of conversation, but an interesting one. I would have been comfortable 20 years ago to marry a man that much older than I. I think it has much to do with what particular age you are at the time the opportunity presents itself.....When both individuals are between 40 and 60, I see no serious concerns with marriage to one another in these decades of life.
One the other hand, a woman in her 20's or 30's, probably wouldn't be making a realistic decision to marry a man in his 40's or 50's. I suspect you follow my reasoning.
I am married so I needn't wonder about this....but hypothetically, at my age now...I wouldn't even think of marrying someone 20 years older than I am.......Simply because I do not have a license in Geriatric nursing............lol
