I googled "dating a man eleven years younger" and the threads are hilarious! Apparently the chemistry in the bedroom is the best they've ever had. I have a feeling that what I've I've read is going to be true in our case, too. (He's a plumber and worked in construction before that.) I love cooking and baking, and he loves to eat. Anyway, after I'd lived here a couple years, I'd noticed quite a few marriage licenses betwwen younger guys/older wimmin. Driving a junker, living in an apartment & being broke all the time, did not cut it.
He's got master energy when it comes to plumbing and repairs. They even published who bought a new car, in that smalllll village! He said the attraction was: The wummun usually had equity in a decent house(via a prior marriage), and a nice car(via a steady job), and the studly guy, burdened with back child support and a bad credit history due to unstable employment, needed to raise his standard of living & have a little security.
Further investigation revealed that my co-worker was right on. You can deny it if you want, but that is usually(there's your loophole)the way it is. I had a friend, who while born in the US, was from a very traditional Filipino family.
His father married a woman 11 years older than he is. He really did not "qualify" for a high-maintenance, pretty young wummun, either.

Where this has been a problem is when she signed up for Social Security. (the higher wage earner) is 62 (in 2017) before she can receive a higher amount based on his S.

Just wondering: If age doesn't matter, then why are you kids making an issue of it? I don't see any threads here, where you ladies are discussing how much LESS your husband weighs than you. After I moved to the hills, I continued to subscribe to the newspaper, and read the public records page, like I did in that littlebitty town waaay up north. I asked a co-worker, who had lived in the area quite awhile, (though originally from KC)about it. He retired as early as he could and it still annoys me that he beat me at that game. If I'm not paying attention I can find myself falling into a Mommy role that I don't like, but that is something I have to control on my end, not an intrinsic flaw in the relationship. I dated a man 12 years younger than I until one day we were looking at magazines and there was a Look magazine, JFK assasination memorial edition and he said 'I remember reading about that' (as he was not born yet when JFK was assasinated) and I thought 'I remember it'. Maybe as he matured (he was 22 at the time) it would have gotten better but we went our separate ways. My husband is 5 years younger than I am but we were older when we married and it works just fine. My sister was 7-years older than her 3rd (and most recent) husband, and they were married for 30-years.
Her mom always said (and to me, too) that women should marry someone five years younger then them, since the men will die earlier, anyway.his dry sense of humor kills you, and dang those eyes!
