40 year old woman dating a 60 year old man
He is two months younger than my daughter and my family do not know about our relationship.
That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.
But according to TODAY’s “This is 50” survey results, only 18 percent of single people in their 50s said they were dating.

NOTE: For those who might wonder why this article focuses only on straight men and women, it is because many of the issues in marrying an older person relate to pregnancy or health and there are significant gender differences in age-related health and sexuality. Mainly it's a visceral, physical thing although some men may value a younger woman because she is more likely to look up to him if only because he may have advanced more in his career.
But there are reasons men should consider older women as a potential marriage partner.
