Testing their predictions on a sample of 173 women, all involved in a romantic relationship, the study's authors compared those in AGRs (with a nine-year or larger age difference) vs. The AGR women ranged from 18 to 53 years old, with partners, on average, 17.3 years older than themselves.

Using standard questionnaire measures, the research team asked all participants to rate their attachment styles as well as their relationship satisfaction.

For example, according to this Huff Post article, at ages 50-54, there are about equal numbers of single men and women.

From age 60-64, there are close to 2.3 single women for every single man. Now, I’m not saying that women my age need to adopt a cougar mentality.

Similar stories are triggered by the (much less-common) pairing of a younger man with an older woman, as with 39-year-old French president Emmanuel Macron, and his wife, Brigitte, 64.

The rarity of such weddings make them novelties, but not fodder for the same type of speculation.

After the wedding of a celebrity husband and his much younger wife, media coverage invariably focuses on the inappropriateness of the age gap.

According to the attachment theory perspective, people’s adult relationships reflect the way they were treated by their caregivers.Some women complain that men in their 60s are only looking for “a nurse or a purse” (actually, preferably both together!) Others say that older men are only interested in dating women one third their age.An age difference of up to 10 years is generally not looked at askance by anyone who knows how old each partner is, but as that gap gets closer to 20, things start to look a bit more off balance.Once a man is literally old enough to be a woman’s father (or vice versa, for older women), public opinion starts to shift from acceptance to skepticism. Mary’s University’s (Halifax) Sara Skentelbery and Darren Fowler examined the phenomenon of “age gap relationships” (AGRs) from an evolutionary perspective, noting that such pairings have benefits in terms of species survival.

Beyond physical characteristics, there is another reason that women in their 60s might want to consider looking for a younger man.
