Women dating younger men statistics
But I’ve noticed a new strategy among my set of female friends—lovely, intelligent, independent women—to combat the grime of the online dating world: date up. More and more women I know are dating men twice, yes , Anne Hathaway stands with Robert De Niro and a bunch of young male colleagues in a bar and draws a harsh comparison: “How in one generation have men gone from guys like Jack Nicholson and Harrison Ford to . I see what Hathaway means: Why put up with Tinder when there’s a whole generation of men out there who wouldn’t dream of using it?There have never been more advantages to relationships with older men, precisely because Tinder and its ilk have made dating feel impossible to those of us who don’t want to participate in the battle of who-cares-less.According to a Canadian study, "Divorce rates are lowest when the husband is two to ten years older than the wife or when the magnitude of their age difference is extremely large." And still others say a man should marry a woman about 15 years younger -- at least if he wants to make sure his kids survive.All of which should make boomer and senior men happy indeed.Men in their 40s tend to marry women about seven years younger, men in their 50s marry women 11 years younger, and men in their 60s marry women 13 years younger.Still, the optimistic outlook for May-December marriages may be masking the mortality issue; who knows how many might have ended in divorce if hubby hadn't died first, notes a 2005 government study of United Kingdom marriages since 1963. Although more research is called for, a preliminary finding of that same U. study may offer a ray of hope -- there doesn't appear to be any strong association between age differences and the probability of divorce.Researchers don't say why, but perhaps it's for the reasons researchers Caron, a professor of family relations and human sexuality at the University of Maine, and Proulx, a marriage and family therapist, of the 2006 study discovered -- society just isn't ready to accept December-May marriages as easily as it does May-December marriages. Robinson out of our mind, or maybe it's because there just aren't that many of them.
A Stanford study confirms what they already know: The older a man is when he marries after age 40, the greater the likelihood his wife will be a lot younger -- whether he's rich and educated or not.
It’s all pretty inconceivable in the long term, and yet it’s happening all the same.
That’s how badly women want to escape the Tinderverse.
Still, despite all the Miss Cougar contests, cougar cruises and cougar how-to dating books, more older women seem to be dating or hooking up with younger men than actually marrying them -- most likely because the women are divorced and aren't too interested in saying "I do" all over again.
Although men still skew much younger when looking for love online, most of us tend to marry someone close to our own age.
