Many men in this world dream for a woman who has a perfect waist, age-gap, slim, tall/short, white tone with attractive features. Mainly it’s a visceral, physical thing although some men may value a younger woman because she is more likely to look up to him if only because he may have advanced more in his career.

Most often a younger woman will always be energetic, naughty and attractive. The younger woman will be more conscious in maintaining their figures and involving themselves in fun and education and focus less on a career.

A younger woman might be assertive in a carrier only after marriage. Before marriage, she might depend on her parent’s income and she might work only to save some amount for her or filling her wardrobes with cosy shoes, dresses, accessories and make-up products, etc…


Some men may prefer marrying a woman older than him because of the following reasons.

  • Maturity- A older woman might be bold, wag and courageous than a younger woman. She might be shrewd in the decisions she makes.
  • Trust- A younger woman might be attractive to the money and appearances than the older woman.
  • Honesty- A older woman will me most honest in her carrier and in her husband’s carrier. But a younger woman might only focus on her carrier and job because she might be lazy and playful.
  • Parenting- A younger woman will feel exhausted by pampering and growing her children. But an older woman requires maturity and equanimity consistently to set limits but not excessive ones, remain calm, and collaboratively solve problems with your child. 
  • Contribution- An older might contribute more money to the family income because of her experience than a younger woman.
  • Motivation- An older woman might motivate and ensure that her husband is taking the right decisions.
  • Expectations- An older woman might expect fewer travelling and shopping than a younger woman.
  • Health and sexual compatibility- An older woman might have more experience and might follow a good routine to keep her body hail.


Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam married Khatijah(r.a) who was older than him. They had an age-gap too. But he lamented for Khatijah9r.a0 lots after her death, too. Because she was loving, supporting, trustful, nourisher, and honest lady.

She used to climb the rocks of Al-Hira to serve food for Prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alayhi wa Sallam. Angel Gabriel would pass Allah’s greeting to Khatijah(r.a) and because of her efforts, she is also ranked as 4 great Muslim women in Islam.



An older woman might be less fertile than the younger woman.

She will look old after she delivers her first child.

She will sound bossy and involved in the decisions you chose.

People might think cheap about me in marrying an older woman.

She might not be playful. 

It does not matter whether you marry a fair, a spouse with the less age-gap, rich, educated, young and fresh girl. Because marriage is all about understanding, love, and trust.
