In Asian culture, most women would prefer marrying a man older than them. It\u2019s extremely rare to hear a woman say, \u201cI dream of marrying a guy younger than me.\u201d It seems like a woman marrying someone younger than her only happens unexpectedly. It isn\u2019t something that would sound ideal to most women.\r\n\r\nJust like my parents, my mum is two years older than my dad. My mum never planned to marry someone younger than her. In fact, before she met my dad, she swore she would never date a guy younger than her. But look what happened in the end, they fell in love and nothing else mattered.\r\n\r\nHere are some of the good and bad things you may face once you marry a younger man.\r\n\r\n\r\nThe good things\r\n\r\n \tMarriage life can be more exciting \r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re married to an older man, he may be more serious and would keep things mature all of the time. Being married to a younger man may spice things up a little more as he can be more adventurous compared to an older guy. Your dates may still be able to involve fun activities like hiking or going to concerts which are less likely to happen with someone older.\r\n\r\n \tYou feel younger when you\u2019re with someone younger\r\n\r\nSince they are more adventurous, they\u2019re able to bring out the more youthful and vibrant part of you. When you\u2019re older than him, he\u2019ll see you as a smarter person and feel the need to please or impress you. This also applies to the fact that a younger guy will have more stamina and you\u2019ll be able to feel younger even in the bedroom.\r\n\r\n \tLess baggage\r\n\r\nThe younger and less experienced a man is, the more open he\u2019ll be in a relationship with you. While you may bring your former boyfriends with you when you enter a new relationship, a younger guy is most likely to pack less. Like my own parents, my mum had one boyfriend before she was with my dad while my mum is my dad\u2019s first and last girlfriend.\r\n\r\n\r\nThe bad things\r\n\r\n \tLack of financial security or stability\r\n\r\nYou may feel a little insecure when you\u2019re already successful and established while he\u2019s still getting started with his career. Or worse, some women end up more of a mother-figure instead of an equal partner. As some women would describe marrying a younger man as, \u201craising a child\u201d. Some men may not even feel okay with this as he could not accept the fact that he is unable to provide for you.\r\n\r\n \tYou might feel like he doesn\u2019t understand your problems \r\n\r\nWhen he\u2019s younger, he may appear to be a little childish when you\u2019re expressing the problems you face to him. There are chances where you\u2019ll feel as though he doesn\u2019t understand you when you confide in him. He may be comforting you in his way, by taking what you said to him lightly in hopes of cheering you up but that may not be what you need.\r\n\r\n \tDifferent goals\r\n\r\nDue to him being younger or from a different generation, both of you may see things differently. You may want certain things in life while he wants something completely different. For example, you plan to have children before you reach your 40s but he doesn\u2019t seem to be ready for a baby anytime soon yet.\r\n\r\nFor more similar articles, please visit Motherhood.com.my.
