Age gap in marriage can be beneficial too

Posted by in Blog, Relationship | Comments Off on Age gap in marriage can be beneficial too

There are several studies indicating that couples of the same or almost the same age are more likely to stay together due to shared personal experiences and common cultural references. But this does not mean that marrying someone slightly older than you is a sure recipe for separation or divorce. In fact, there are many couples who enjoy happy, healthy marriages despite age differences.

Marrying someone slightly older than you may bring about certain benefits. For instance, having an older partner can provide you guidance through his or her experience. Your partner’s maturity can contribute insight to critical decisions and life experiences. Additionally, experienced individuals who happen to be further up the career ladder may be more likely to bring financial stability and security to a relationship or family.
