Younger or Elder

Girls like to marry boys who are older than them while boys like to marry girls who are younger than them. Well, is this correct? What do you think? I have asked my friends, both girls and boys, and all the girls answered that they will never marry guys who are younger than them while almost all [not all] boys said they will only marry girls who are younger to them. I told them not to consider the social factor or anything that exists in the community, but to decide for themselves. So, their answers were completely personal opinions. So, what do you think. Do you belong to these majority or do you not? Justify your answer.

  8. That's the norm yes...but thats cos boys like to bully and girls like to hv a father-figure :):)


    In my case, I dun like guys who r way too young for me...cos guys do take more time to mature :). Im naturally attracted to older men like Obama lol!

  10. Nope i dont believe in any of this. Its a matter of personal choice. From a woman's perspective i can say that i wud marry a guy irrespective of his age...the only criteria that he shud fulfill is tht, he shud hav the maturity and stability to handle a serious relationship. I dont like hanky-panky kinda guys!! So anybody who fits the bill is gr8.

    I think this mentality stems from the fact that younger guys r generally immature. Also older men are well settled and more stable in those terms. So my opinion is my own and i dont want to nullify what others say or think coz as i said its a matter of personal choice.

  16. hp,

    Love can happen at any age group?
    So, it is said, but I've never seen girls marrying younger guys except in TV.

    **if u keep looking for love and u r age goes up so u may become a uncle by the time u get the gal of ur choice

    If that is supposed to happen, it will happen no matter what.

    **so i am trying for this love to be felt soon :)..

    May you feel it soon :)

    ***but if its a yong guy i will think a lot even before goin out with him

    You said, it depends on love, then why this partiality now?

    ***Age mattrs sinply cuz s the guy grows up, his priorities n liking mite change

    so,you think priorities of guys older than you won't change?

    But younger guys are immature? I don't get it. I meant guys younger than girls, not a guy who is in his teens

  24. Justify ur answer -lol sounds like an exam qs.
    I guess why many girls like to marry a guy who is elder is because they prefer someone who is more matured than them. I think :s

  25. According to me this is the most weird restriction that one can keep to find a life partner.
    It's just a matter of personal choice & if you're compatible with him/her then age should be no bar.

  26. Hi Annesh...me here for the first time.

    Intresting blog.

    I would like to marry a man older to me coz...Whenever I feel blue, I would want to depend on a person whos more responsible than me.....

    Well to be frank...theres nothing like elder or younger..every man or a woman is at times a child at heart and both need a sense of security and responsibility from each other.

  36. I don't think age is all that important. If two people are in love, they're in love and that's that.

    Personality is the most important to me.

  43. hmm there are reasons why its d normal preference of the people...not just hte social factor...

    they say girls are much more mature than a guy of the same age...so if u look for someone older then it balances the equation and from my personal experience too i support the cause..that girls should marry older boys and boys should marry younger girls

  45. I was thinking about this today!!

    I guess it all begins with the social and emotional maturity factor I guess. Most people believe that men mature less speedily than women and therefore two people of the same age but of different genders are most likely not going to be mature at the same level.
