For example, a man who is 40 is probably going to be more settled down than a man who is 25.
As an aside, I’ve heard the argument against big age differences when the male is older than the female because it doesn’t seem fair for a woman to marry an older man only to end up taking care of him shortly thereafter rather than enjoying a long marriage in which both gracefully grow old together.
From a practical standpoint, I can see some merit in that argument, but I don’t think it should be an absolute.
Also, if children are important to you, consider the biological clock factor.
Bringing biology into the equation is spiritual in nature since God created women’s bodies with the ability to carry and deliver children for a season, but not for their entire life.
We’ve had a couple of questions from people who are concerned that their potential spouse is quite a bit older than they are and they are wondering if they should be concerned about the age difference and the issues and possible challenges that go with it.
