Is It Okay For A Man To Marry A Woman Older Than Him?

There is this popular saying that love is blind.

Is it so blind, that a man gets married to a woman older than him?

What age difference is tolerable for a relationship to last longer?

I am asking this question, because there have been cases where older women who got married to men younger than them get over bearing, and the end result is a collapse marriage.

whats your opinion?

There's nothing wrong with marrying a woman older than you. The reasons you're getting married matter more than the preexisting conditions. You might as well get married to someone at least your age mate or younger than you and still have a bad marriage. A lot of people have different reasons for getting married to their spouse of choice, and these reasons differ. You have to equate yours according to what you want, how you want it, when you want, and what makes you want it; you don't have to equate it with what others have been through because, for all we know, you haven't been through the same lot.

If she's older than you, but after close study, she's the best woman for you, go ahead and marry her and don't be bothered about what people's assessment will be. Understand, however, that when you live your life, it's for you and no one else or the same people you long to satisfy will be the first to nail you.

If he's comfortable and she's the right woman for him, then why should age be a deterrence. as long as she's not outrageously older than me i probably wouldn't mind getting to know what she has to offer me.
