It’s such a topic of conversation that we’ve created a whole lexicon to describe these “May December” romances–see?
Even I’m using the lingo—with websites devoted to facilitating them, porn devoted to fetishizing them, and fake and “real” reality shows ( Courtney Stodden.
That’s hardly reflects the increasing age gap preference! As Psychology Today points out, women today have more career choices and are getting closer to equal pay, which means they are feeling less pressured to get married in order to achieve stability.
The increase use of fertility treatments also probably has something to do with it too, since women don’t feel as pressured by the tick-tock of their biological clocks to have children. It might have to do with the fact that many divorced men have children and alimonies to pay, something which younger women might tolerate better than a woman in the man’s own age bracket.
If you have these things in common, then a few years (or decades) won’t matter.
You’ve been in the work world ten times longer than I have.Recent stats show that marriages are within a small age gap. A study published in found that divorced men are much more likely to remarry a much younger woman. It also might be because the men are looking for someone different than their ex wives.Or maybe they are scared of dating women their age after being out of the game so long…Other studies show an even larger preferred age gap between men and women.A 5-month study by a dating site which buys and sells first dates found the preferred age gap to be 6 years.
I’ve been on a lot of dates of late, and in spite of the wide parameters I think I want, and the results of that flimsy formula, I’ve found that my “sweet spot” was smaller than I thought.
