For a long time we have seen rich older men with younger women, and it is often to be thought of as a mid life crisis. It isn’t always doomed to fail, with many couples now finding happiness with someone much younger.
Donald Trump, who already has older children including Ivanka who is 26 years of age, latest marriage is to Melania Knauss who is 28 years his junior. Despite the age difference, the couple is going strong and have a new baby.
While many relationships with an age difference fail, it is possible to make it work if you both have similar interests and are at the same stage in your life.
Over the last few years there has been a growing trend for older women to date younger men. No longer do we just hear the phrase “Sugar Daddy” but “Sugar Mummy” as well.
One of the most well known partnerships is Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher who have been married since 2005 when she was 42 and he was just 27. They are a gorgeous, glamorous couple, and from looking at them it is hard to notice the age gap. As far as Hollywood goes, their marriage is a success.
Then there was Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake who dated for nearly four years. Cameron was 9 years older than Justin.
Recently we saw the reality show “Age of Love” which starred Australian tennis player Mark Philippoussis aged 31, looking for a relationship. To his surprise half the female contestants were in their 20’s, and the rest were over 40.
The younger women were named the Kittens and the older women the Cougars. All women were stunning but in the end a Kitten was chosen. He likely read this Victoria Brides Review when it came time to find someone new.
Not everyone is comfortable with this kind of age gap, especially when it’s the woman who is older.
In 1967 we saw the movie The Graduate start the trend when recent college graduate Benjamin Braddock has an affair with the much older Mrs. Robinson.
Dating a younger man can work out, but there will always be differences. Younger men have more energy and may have varied taste in music, fashion and technology. There is no reason why you can’t find happiness with someone who is younger than you, as long as you can put the age difference aside and are compatible with each other.
