Does Age Affect Happiness In Marriage (Matrimonial Bliss)?

I don't know how to put the topic; but the idea is ; does ones age have anything to do with a successful marriage ? (both gender)

18 years is when u become an adult, so marrying immediately, few years after, or really later shouldn't change anything. Or what do you think ?

there's something called hyperbole, exaggeration. that was only used to drive home the point that maturity doesn't always have to do with age

and i quite agree with that. a lot of factors count: exposure, etc.

whatever the age i think the gap shouldn't be so much.not more than 10 yrs. they both have to reason alike, like ppl from the same century

Unless the person is mentally slow, I doubt a 48 year old would have the maturity of a 10 year old or vice versa. In any case, what is the maturity of a ten year old or a 48 year old. It may be easy to define how they are different, but what is the difference between the maturity of someone 29 years of age and 32 years of age? At some point, everyone is on the same level.

There are no fixed rules in marriage. But considering the fact that a man or woman contemplating marriage must exhibit some level of financial and emotional maturity; it is important to note this and also know that these things are not generally linked to one's age.

I will also mention that due to the country's economic condition, most guys reach financial freedom at later age than those living in developed countries. Just follow your heart and when the time comes, you are bound to know.

well, thats your opinion. If you were saying that in terms of maturity, thats a different matter,cause it is said that women mature faster than men. So marrying someone younger will make them be on the same level. But your reason as per cheating is a matter of principle. If you have a good marriage and are a good man, you wont cheat just cause your wife is aging. Why should a man leave his wife for someone else? Men in the north marry girls younger than they are and we have more cases of divorce in the north than in the south here and it is not because the wife is aging. If youre a cheater, youre a cheater whether your wife is young or old you will cheat. Aging is just an excuse, as is nagging and the rest.

sorry to say akinzo,thats sounds very immature. So are you saying youre getting married cause of looks? You dont marry someone cause they are young and look good. You marry someones heart because they are beautiful to you from the inside and the heart doesnt age,and even if you want to put that into consideration too, if youre a cheater, youre a cheater! Dont use age as an excuse.

Personally, age is no big deal as long as you are with the love of your life.

For a guy, its better to get married to a lady who is quite younger than he is at least 4 years difference reason being that as the couple grows, the lady tends to age faster than the guy. If they are the same age, the guy might be tempted to look someone quite younger which might affect their relationship.

Some 12 years old have the mind of a 24 year old. While some 48 years old have the mind of a 10 year old. So i say marry when you are mature enough. As layi always say : Marriage is not a joke, it meant for the mature minds or summin like that. What am i tryna say.. Marry when you know u r ready. U shouldn't marry becos u r now 18, 21 or watever.
