Never Marry A Man Your Own Age

Maybe this is only a question I am asking, and what is written here provides the answer.

Please understand that this is only one woman's perspective, and if you are presently madly in love with someone who happens to have been born the same year, you may well have found your dream person.

I am sharing this as only one human being who has come to this point of view in light of her own experience.

All looks rosy when you are relatively young, but as you find yourself in old age, you may discover that the party tends to change.

When getting up each day brings problems specific to aging, two individuals who are living together find themselves faced with similar issues. What I refer to are memory problems, general health depletion and a multitude of reasons to dread facing each morning.

Naturally, if two people have grown together, their love should be that special thing which keeps the relationship strong. However. that isn't always the case. Many days one or the other of the pair may be so involved with their own difficulties that they have no desire to listen to their mate complain of theirs.

The question that might be asked is whether or not true affection can circumvent the annoyance one or the other may feel, and provide a safe haven for both.

As I indicated in starting this message, I am presently wondering if having married someone one's own age might be a mistake. I have to ask myself whether or not an individual's life would be very different had they married someone who was older, and that seems like something rather impossible in certain instances. For some of us that might mean widowhood and a very lonely old age.

A thought comes to mind that I feel impelled to share. That is the possibility that if two human beings who have grown old together acknowledge that they do still love one another, they can make an effort to try and understand the struggle their mate is facing, and make a concerted effort to regain the understanding they may have lost.

There is always that possibility if the two people take the time to recognize that life would be far worse minus the presence of the individual with whom they live. That would seem to be an appropriate choice for both of them to make, and might bring back the feelings they shared for so long.

Perhaps this has only been a question I have been presenting here. As I write it I must acknowledge the joy I have shared with the man who has been my mate for over thirty years. It seems to me that if both of the pair make a commitment to such an attitude, things may look a lot brighter then they seemed before.
