Im dating an older woman with kids
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.

I don't believe age is very important at all, I think what determines a great relationship is that both partners are of similar emotional maturity.
If he's married to a 60 year-old woman, he's married to someone who, on average, is physiologically ten years younger and thus likely healthier and more vigorous, physically and mentally.

My rule of thumb is, if the person im with could technicaly have concieved a child the same as me then they are too old and if I, by age, could have concieved a child the same age as the younger prospect then he is to young.
