Older Men With Younger Women: How Old Is Too Old?

I miss you all on here. Guess who is back to the front-line of GhanaCelebrities.Com again.  After disappearing to the back stage and stepping away from article writing to help with other aspects of the site, I am back in a full force for 2011 as we dream of taking GC to a different level. It feels great to be back on here again…

I am sure we have all come across terms like ‘Sugar Daddy,’ ‘Oluman Boogie,’ and even ‘Aristo’- all used to describe relationships where the man is significantly older than the woman. However, it would be typecasting to suggest that all relationships of this sort are due to reasons other than love, i.e. financial reasons (on the woman’s side), or s*xual reasons (on the man’s side). What if an older man and a younger woman are really and truly in love with each other? Is there really a limit to how wide the age-gap between the two can be?

There are some relationships that have age-gaps which are just preposterous; take the late Anna Nicole Smith’s marriage to the late business tycoon, Howard Marshall- a man 63 years her senior. On the other hand though, some relationships where an older man is dating a younger woman could be deemed acceptable due to the age-gap being quite ‘reasonable’ per say; take Jay-Z and Beyonce (12 years difference), or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (11 years difference).

I’ll be straight with you guys, this topic is of personal interest to me because I am currently dating a man who is 15 years older than me. The relationship is not for any financial gain on my side (I have never once asked him for money and never will as I am an independent woman) or any s*xual gain on both sides; it is purely two people that have fallen deeply in love with each other after months of talking and becoming acquainted with each other.

I’m not going to lie- I had huge doubts in the beginning for several reasons: the age-gap, what my friends would think and what others would think. However, I have come to realise that I can’t live my life the way people want me to live it- I have to do what pleases me.

I have always been one of the most judgemental people when it comes to older men dating younger women; I always used to make assumptions that the females were just gold-diggers and the men were just using them s*xually.

Therefore, it is extremely ironic that I now find myself in the same situation that I was once so critical of. Not only has this taught me not to be so judgemental, but has also opened my eyes and taught me some valuable points. Henceforth, I am now a great believer in love comes in all ages, but maybe I’m just being biased because it’s a situation I’m living at the moment.

I want to know what you guys think (not what you think of MY situation), but just what you generally think of older men dating younger girls.
