Is it wrong for older women to be with younger guys?


  • Michael Castleman says:

    No, it’s not wrong. Far from it. I know a couple, together 30 years. The woman is 20 years older than the man. And you may be familiar with “cougars.” They are older women involved with younger men (“cubs”).

    The main problem with a major age difference is that the two people grew up in different worlds. One says, “Ed Sullivan” and the other has no idea who he was or the cultural impact of his old TV show. Any differences can strain relationships, and big differences—in age, religion, ethnicity, education, etc.—can cause larger strains. But just as being the same age is no guarantee of lifelong happiness together, being significantly different ages doesn’t doom the relationship. It’s all about the two specific individuals and how they get along.
