This seems to have been much more common in the past. So many single women seem to be very resistant to dating much older men. Many women won’t even consider dating a man who is more than 5 years older than she is.
One of my friends is 50 and wants marriage and children. He is having trouble finding a nice woman who is young enough to have children. I advised him to look for a divorced woman who has a child or two and who wants more children.
Do you think he is being unreasonable? Is a 50 year old man too old to become a father for the first time?
Generally, yes; but there are exceptions. I think I have some room to talk because I am 53 and my wife is 27…but I’m no cradle robber. I wasn’t looking for a younger woman, it just happened naturally. We met at work, where many a romance has started. I don’t know if was because of luck (bad) or whatever, but my wife can’t have children due to a female medical issue…but we are both fine with it. We have no desire to adopt or have any remorse that kids aren’t in the cards for us. We are both kids at heart, so we are probably too immature to have children of our own anyway…:smileyvery-happy:
But, it can work. My brother re-married very late in life (he is 9 years my senior) and his new wife and he have 2 beautiful kids.
Bottom line: There are no rules when it comes to relationships and romance. If both parties are willing to work at it, almost any scenario can work.
