Marrying Young Isn’t Just For Rich Old Guys Like Donald Trump

The older a man is when he gets married, the more likely it is that his bride will be significantly younger — even if he’s poor — according to new Stanford University research. Men in their 40s tend to marry women who are an average of seven years younger; for men in their 50s, there’s usually an 11-year age difference; and if a guy’s in his 60s, his wife will be about 13 years younger. “In first marriages, men are typically a couple years older than women,” said Paula England, co-author of the study. But, “the older men are when they marry, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s a first or a second marriage, the more years they marry down.”The researchers note that part of this can be explained by the fact that women tend to be less concerned with their mate’s physical attractiveness — “they are not judging people as much on looks,” England said. I say, who wants an ugly husband? [Mercury News]
