By “much younger women” I’m usually talking about VYW, which I define as women between the age of 18 and 23.
It didn't work out between us, but not because of the age thing. I didn't care what anybody else thought, and neither did she.What everybody else said - there's no legal reason why not.....be warned, there's a little more potential for punctured ego because there's just a little more chance that instead of 'Ummm...The older man / younger women stuff also generally applies to any man who is hitting up any woman of legal age who is more than 10 years younger than he is.
(Since men hitting up women within one to nine years younger is considered “normal” by society in most cases.) So in a way, a 45 year old man working with a 26 year old woman would apply here, even though she’s technically not a VYW.
If all your dates are 10 years younger than you, there's maybe more going on, but if this girl does it for you, and she doesn't live with her parents ( ), go for it. Just that you don't remember the same Saturday morning cartoons (except the various Bugs Bunny shows of course). If the maturity levels are too far apart, well, you'll find out on the date. My sis at the tender age of 18 married a 35 yr old. The worst that can happen is she'll giggle and say somethin like "oh my heck!
A quick question, how would you feel if the age difference was the other way round? The fact that they are divorcing has nothing to do with that (well a little bit but not pertinent to this discussion).
Using Sua Sponte's Rule of Seven (and he's a lawyer so you KNOW it's true) you figure out if a person is old enough for you by taking your age, dividing it by two, and adding seven. We'd both been previously married, both had children and were both the wronged parties in the break ups of our marriages. (Cough..lesbian...cough, cough) It was fine for awhile. She was really, really hot, though, so I had to at least see what she was like. And I did not even come close to breaking any laws in the whole process.
so, 32/2 = 16 and 16 7 = 23 so she's too young for you. I was initially concerned about the age difference but it has rarely been an issue. Originally posted by dropzone Using Sua Sponte's Rule of Seven (and he's a lawyer so you KNOW it's true) you figure out if a person is old enough for you by taking your age, dividing it by two, and adding seven. I guess that would violate the divide age by 2 and add 7 rule.
He replied ' As if you're making a deal out of my age, that all goes out the window past about 16/17. I always get really emotional when splitting up in relationships, imagine if it progresses and then ends, I would be crying on to a 18 year old boy.
