His long experience would have given him a wider perspective on the really important things in life, an essential factor in any successful relationship.Perhaps one reason why Jacqueline Kennedy decided to marry the much older but more subdued Aristotle Onassis after having lived as the wife of a very colorful and charismatic but younger John Kennedy.And like with many long-held practices, there are certain advantages to marrying a man older to you.
You missed our wild days and we're settled down now. We've learned a lot from our previous relationships.
It's not like a guy who's five years older than you is going to be taking you out for the Denny's early bird special ever day before promptly going to bed, but odds are those 5 a.m. We can still drink people under the table, we just don't want to do it at some crappy, crowded dive bar. We don't want to be shoving our way through a bunch of sweaty people to get them. You're going to hear stories about "the old days" and wonder why we aren't as fun anymore. All right, so no one knows what they want, but we've got a job, if not a career, and some money saved up, because we already did that thing where you spend all your money and then have no money.7.
The incidence of young women marrying men much advanced in years is nothing new.
In fact the patriarchal underpinnings of society make it easier for older men to have young brides rather than for mature women to find social acceptance with far younger male partners.
This is a huge advantage as compared to younger men who are forever getting jealous of your mingling with other men or expecting their fragile egos to be massaged every now and then.
