Rule dating younger
In an interview after his release, Dixon told The Oprah Show, “Freedom is great.
It’s unbelievable that I’m finally home after 14 months.
And it’s not just for celebrities-according to a 2008 AARP poll, almost one-third of women between the ages of 40 and 69 date men who are 10 or more years younger. What will Madonna have to do to make sure her relationship lasts longer than , for some advice. “The assumption that a younger man will inevitably cheat on an older woman is part of the historic nonsense by which women are made to feel fearful, valueless and undesirable,” she says. Judging from, infidelity is by far the biggest issue cougars face.
Look at Halle Berry and Eva Longoria, who ended their relationships when their younger men allegedly strayed with younger women.
According to the rule, the age of the younger partner (regardless of gender) should be no less than seven more than half the older partner’s age.
Martin, then, shouldn’t date anyone younger than 26 and a half; Lawrence shouldn’t go above 34.
So, I'm proposing this “8-year rule” in dating as an absolute.
Here are four problems you'll likely run into if you break the 8-year rule: I once went out with a woman who was under the impression that Lauryn Hill was made famous by being in “Sister Act 2.”Now, there are a few reactions you can have to this.
One is, “Well, it a good movie.” Two is, “God, people already forgot about The Fugees, huh? ” If your answer is either two or three, then we're on the same page.
It doesn’t help that women have been wired for centuries to equate their worth with youth and beauty. “It is often the limiting thoughts a woman has absorbed that can create problems for the couple,” says Winter.
“If she is fearful, insecure and doubting her merit, she will never be able to accept that her younger man loves her.” Winter adds that media reports about Demi Moore’s obsession with looking young are “the perfect example of how the ideal of youth and beauty can torture even the most lovely example of a modern-day woman.” The idea that one must maintain an illusion of youth to keep a younger partner is illogical. “It's an up-front buy that he's willing to accept, because he values the totality of who she is and what she brings to his life.” Talk about family planning.
Then there was Ashton Kutcher who stepped out with a 23-year-old, leading Demi Moore into a whippet-induced 911 scandal. “In the hundreds of cases I've researched, the couples I know and with whom I've worked, there is love and fidelity,” she says.
