Age difference for dating common sense and alicia keys dating
Age is the vehicle by which we experience common milestones in life.
These milestones give us the ability to relate to one another.
New research shows that, at least for the Sami people of preindustrial Finland, men should marry a woman almost 15 years their junior to maximize their chances of having the most offspring that survive.
Marrying an older woman or much older man proved the most detrimental to reproductive success.The span ranged from men marrying women as much as 20 years older to women marrying men as much as 25 years older; the average age difference between husband and wife was three years.Marriage customs or the availability of reindeer to support a new family (the Sami people are reindeer herders) might be the reason that more Sami marriages did not display the optimum age difference, Helle says.All that said, I do have one (admittedly hypocritical) rule when it comes to dating much older men.To weed out the creepsters, I always ask if they generally date women as young as me.
