If you have ever heard the popular saying that goes; ‘age is nothing but a number’, then you just might as well agree with me that this might be the reason why we have very older men finding the younger ladies appealing. Or perhaps shall we say that is the reason why the younger ‘chics’ see nothing wrong in dating these men. Whatever the case maybe, it all boils down to the fact that preferences differ.
But, for just how long would the preferences of these younger ladies continue to be at variance, you just might wonder? I once heard the story of a 30 year old lady who had been dating a man of 55 years. In the beginning when they started; it was just the case of ‘you be my concubine and i shall be your money bag’ kind of scenario. But few years down the line, the old dude thought it was time to make it official since he could no longer put up with the incessant pressure being mounted on him by the lady to come make it official at her parents’.
So, in no time at all, they were married and so this chic became wife number 3. Could this be the kind of marriage she wanted for herself from time immemorial, or is she yet another loyal student in the school of materialism? Well, your guess is as good as mine! These were some of the questions that were raised in the hearts of all and sundry who knew them both.
Now, back to the subject of the day. Whilst probably she must have been so genuinely in love, couldn’t she have found a younger guy with whom she should have settled with? The subject of a lady marrying a very much older guy didn’t just start today; after all there are celebrities like Victoria Ekanem -now Victoria Danjuma who have continued to keep her older man of nearly ten years.
Truth be told, whether you be a man or woman, the choice of marrying either a much younger girl or a much older man solely lies with you. After all the saying’ that goes ‘different strokes for different folks’ just haven’t faded yet.
The million dollar question for you guy or lady therefore is; can you marry a younger girl or a much older man?
