Studies show that relationship satisfaction reported by age-gap couples is higher.
These couples also seem to report greater trust and commitment and lower jealousy than similar-age couples.
Over three-quarters of couples where younger women are partnered with older men report satisfying romantic relationships.
Counselling psychologist Benjamin Zulu says advises that it is okay for women to date and marry a younger man than them as long as he is not below 30.
“In Africa men mature slowly. They get ready to settle with one woman when they are 30 years and above. Although there are a few who marry below and settle the percentage is very small,” he told Joyce Omondi on TV.
“Let the lady be any age but not below 25 and the man is above 30 years.”
A 10 year gap is very nice but preferably let the guy be older.
The life coach went ahead saying that a guy who is 40 dating a 25-year-old is right but most senior bachelors have a reason they are doing that.
“Make sure the season is a safe one as most will give a safe narrative but they were victims in the former relationships. If they stand telling you that you are the only one who understands them in the whole world, that is a red-flag and so run away because you could be their third baby mama.”
He adds that the only safe reason is if there was a genuine relationship and something happened and he became the victim in the relationship like death.
“One of the danger of dating a senior bachelor is that they think they know everything. If you date an older woman, you become their son. She will age ahead of you and you will end up cheating”
