Dating or Marrying Older Women?

#1
Another generally romance question. Let's say both the man and the lady live themselves dearly.

Ladies can you date and/or marry men that are younger than you?

Men can you date and/or women that are older than you?
As I said above, let's believe they both love themselves.
Awaiting honest and practical answers.
Thanks.

OK then, I will take your former contribution as an opinion of both literature student and political scientists.
I am looking forward to the day you will introduce a woman that is 23 years older than you as your bride to be, let's see how your family will "rejoice" over it. Lol.

At your younger age it won't but when you hit 30 every day counts.
The difference in appearance between a 30 years old man and 32 years old man will not be of gap, more likely a chasm.

Great! 
Thanks for your honest reply. 
Sometimes it's a bit "unAfrican" for a man to marry an older woman. 
Thanks.

To be frank I won't marry a woman who is older than I am. Reason no:1 it is not fully accepted by the majority,: 2 women are meant to be under a man, but bcs she is older than u she may not be humble to u. Especially when she is the bread winner of the house. finally she will get older than you, that she may not be attractive again which can lead you to commit adultery. so as a man you are supposed to get married to a girl who you gave up to ten years gap, so that both of u will become of aged in equilibrium thanks

Thanks for your input and opinion.
You are really an honest person.
All your above points is a true marker of the mentality of a typical African man which is very OK in most ramifications.
Thanks.

95% men are in a relationship with women they are far older than. Relationship is all about, LOVE which is the greatest commandment. I personally belief that age is just a number. Your experience, achievement, determination, vision, goal and endeavor is what matter. Folk, let us look at what love can do: love is patient, kind, not jealous, dose not brag, does not get puffed up, does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not behave indecently, does not puffed up, does not provoked, it does not keep account of the injury. It bears all things , believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things and love never fail.

Thanks for your opinion but don't you think there should be some restrictions despite one's attainment in the society... Or are you saying it's ok to marry a woman that is decades older because of your achievements?
Just asking!

If, this question was a public test I could place u amongst the best top 10 students. 60 years old man can marry 18 years old girl no problem with in our African setting but if da woman 8 become an issue. Which I am bitterly against.

It is also not the best practice for a man to marry a woman he is 10 years older and above but that's a typical Africa for you.
This is most prevalent among the people that marry many wives because their religion encourages that eg Muslims.

Your age (appearance?) will match with an older woman in few years after living together?
Are you kidding me?
Don't you know that women grow old much faster than men?

No but I am aware that women tend to grow much older than men, especially after child births.
Be free to ask others about this.

That does not mean there will be no exception though.

I understand ur point
white women dnt give birth like Africans, dey jst av two kids nd forget other tins nd again, dey sometimes use operation wich makes it less painful, so dey usually rhyme wit der younger husband's dan Africans
again, dey engage in less work, African women usually engage in hard labor unlike white pple who suffer less wit der family.
my point is,in our African setting, dat wen u knw wu is older nd who is younger, bt I blive dat d next generation will knw wat is better fr dem

Exactly, plus the fact that our women don't watch their weights. They tend to add a lot of weight which makes them look much older.

Also Western world is not like Africa, no one will cares if you marry older woman but right here in our society people will be talking especially at your back, how you married your mother's age mate...
