The bible and dating older men
Two important questions we must ask ourselves are: Is there any danger in such a marriage where wives are older than their husbands?
What is the role age is playing in making the marriage work?
Cultural Excusesrlt is against our culture and tradition, they often say.
People tend to disagree with such union because it is not an acceptable practice in their culture.
Cultural beliefs may be a major barrier to such a union.
Several relationships where the woman is older than the man - especially in Africa - are facing rejections, oppositions, and mockery because people feel such relationships are against norms, and they should not be accepted. Like I said earlier, this may not really be an issue in the Western world, because of the 'anything goes' kind of life people live over there and the freedom of choice the constitution has given everyone.
But if you think you feel good with such relationship, isn't it still good to wait a minute to count the cost?
Please don't get me wrong; I do not say it is evil for a woman to marry a younger man, but I think it is advisable for both parties to critically count the cost first.
I understand that love transcends all the mockery, rejections and any ugly thing you might face, yet there is need for critical consideration.
