IS IT WISE FOR A WOMAN TO DATE A MAN THAT IS LITERALLY 16 YEARS OLDER THAN SHE?
DO YOU THINK THERE WILL BE TRUST OR INSECURTIY ISSUES?
Really age is just a number. It all depends on the compatibility of the two people. If they have common interests and get along well then it can work. I know because my parents were 16 years apart. Unfortunately my father passed away, but they did have a happy marriage. Trust has nothing to do with age. A person earns your trust, same with insecurity issues. Age should have nothing to do with it.
As long as you are aware of the differences you have, and are able to accept them, then you should be fine.
It depends on her age. If she is young most likely not , however I am 45 , my husmand is 63 , 18 years older yet we have plenty in common,
Both like travel, same music, camping out ,snorkeling, cycling,,,, and more even think alike on a lot of things so we are ok but I can see with some there would be a lot of diferences when it comes to everyday life etc so there is a lot to consider even if he will want children and other things.
I married my husband who is 18 years my senior when I was 18. We have 2 children and 9 grandchildren and are as much in love today as we were the day we married.
It only matters that both are committed to the relationship.
16 years in my opinion is too large a gap, if one is looking for a long term goal of remaining married for ever. Many psychological and physiological nuances are there behind such a relationship. If the woman is say 28 years old and looks young and attractive, her man will be 44 years old and he may look middle aged. If the wife is an extrovert and mingles easily with the opposite sex, the husband may turn envious and start mudslinging at his wife.
If the wife is, say 42 years old and still has interest in sex, and if her 58 year old husband fails to perform, she may get highly irritated and the husband may suffer emotionally.
If the wife is 60 and her 76 year old husband dies, she has a long widowhood to face in her live without a supportive companion.
My ideal age gap is 4-7 years.

You can't say it is a wise step. But age does not matter in making serious relationship. Instead you should compare the qualities of an older person and assess it with a young person. If the older person grades high, definitely he can be a good choice for dating.
I dont know if he treats her right then nothing esle should matter
It's it wise for a woman to date a man that is literally 16 years older than she, well it depends on how old this person is ... if you are 14-16,
i am not for it, (against it 100%) but if you're 20+ more power to you.

I was born and raised in one area and then after getting married have lived most of my life far away from my siblings. It has been hard to keep the relationship going, although it really was never that close to begin with - how about yours?

Would you allow your child to date someone 10 years older than her/him?I have a friend who has a 16 year old daughter who is currently dating 26 year old guy. If you're the parent, would you allow this?

Would you marry someone 20 years older than you?

Would you rather date someone ten years older or ten years younger?Obviously your own age is going to affect your answers, especially if you're in your twenties (haha).
