Younger Wife = Happy Marriage

According to experts,  the secret to a happy marriage for men is choosing a wife who is smarter and at least five years younger than you. They found that if the wife was five or more years older than her husband, they were more than three times as likely to divorce than if they were the same age.

If the age gap is reversed, and the man is older than the woman, the odds of marital bliss are higher.

Dr Emmanuel Fragniere and colleagues do say that men and women choose partners “on the basis of love, physical attraction, similarity of taste, beliefs and attitudes, and shared values.”

But they say that using “objective factors” such as age, education and cultural origin “may help reduce divorce”.

  4. I agree. I am almost 7 years older than my husband. I am 30 and he is 24. He has a lot of growing up to do and dropped out of college. Everything is my fault. I want to try and make us happy.
