What you can point out, though, is what you’ve observed in the younger man vs older man dynamic that I’ve missed.

My personal view is that age isn't anything but a number.

However, I do see exceptions; for instance, if a guy ends up with an older woman who doesn't want anymore children because she has her children and the guy does want children, that could bring up some problems (and vice versus).

The much touted idea that women peak sexually in their 30s and men in their teens does not enter into it -- most of these couples are beyond both those age periods.

But what about the notion that men are "hard-wired" to seek a smooth-faced, curvy receptacle for reproduction and thus are drawn to younger women?
