The stereotypical belief that men should be older than women when dating has been left behind in the 21st century. Age has just become a number as many men choose to be in a relationship with older women.
Prince Narula, Karanvir Bohra, and Suryash Rai are Indian actors who married to older women. Let’s look at a few reasons why younger men prefer older women as their partners.
1) Older women are well established and driven
Older women are not dependent on their men for everything. They are achievers and have more experience in the work field. They know well how to divide personal and professional life.Younger men find them attractive because they are both smart and strong.
2) Financially and emotionally independent
Older women are likely to be both financially and emotionally independent. They understand the importance of hard work and even help you out with your career. They are emotionally stable as well and don’t harbour insecurities. Older women are more understanding and accepting of flaws in their partners. They understand the need for personal space and which makes younger men more comfortable in a relationship.
3) They are honest and open-minded
Older women do not beat around the bush tell you upfront whether they like or dislike anything. So a relationship with them is always smooth as there is no need to read between the lines. There is no problem with communication as she will put her point forward concisely and clearly.
4) Highly Supportive
Older women can give meaningful advice and support in time of need. They are sensible enough to handle difficult situations and stand by their partner. They have both experience and knowledge to give valuable advice. Younger men need such support when making life-changing decisions or going through a dilemma.
5) They can face break-ups maturely
Older women understand that relationships can have a dead end and act maturely when going through a break-up. They don’t try to emotionally trap someone or do too much drama around it. Instead, they may develop a lasting friendship with their partner even after having broken up, making dating them easier for a younger man.
Those days are gone when the bride had to necessarily be younger than the groom. However, many Bollywoodactors who married older woman, like Abhishek Bachchan, Shirish Kunder, Aditya Pancholi, and Sunil Dutt, broke societal norms and have proved that age is no factor for a successful relationship.
