I’m currently in a relationship with a fella the age of my older sister.
It has its perks and it has its bummer moments, but I think dating up in age is something that women should do at least once in life, even if it doesn’t turn into something serious.
Meanwhile, US President Barack Obama, 48, and wife Michelle, 45, may have only a three-year difference in age but have been married for 17 years.
But the study may not be welcomed by Michael Douglas, 65, and his 40-year-old wife Catherine Zeta-Jones – the research suggests a marriage is more likely to fail if only one partner has been previously divorced, and Douglas was married once before.
George Clooney and his new wife, Amal Alamuddin, are the talk of the town.
Using the data collected about their age, education, nationality and previous relationships, they found the factors that many of those who broke up had in common.I have nothing against guys my age; I have tried dating them, but I have constantly come across the following:– They're not ambitious enough, or they don’t have a go-getter attitude.– They're not financially stable.– They still want to date around.– They have had baby mama or ex-wife drama.– They don't have their sh*t together.I'm not saying every guy in my age group is like this, but overall, my personal experience hasn't been fulfilling for me.The research, called Optimising The Marriage Market, appeared in the European Journal Of Operational Research, which usually analyses business decisions.Academics including Dr Emmanuel Fragnière of the University of Bath studied interviews with 1,534 Swiss couples who were either married or in a serious relationship.
