Age Gap Relationships: The Perfect Age Gap is Four Years and Four Months Age gap relationships are growing ever more common, and although the age gaps seem to be getting bigger, it is thought that four years and four months is the perfect age-gap.
There was one strict rule that emerged and it was that the man had to be the older person in the relationship.
Only one in a hundred women said that they think the ideal relationship is with a much younger man.
Despite most women believing that the man had to be older, women admitted to judging other women who dated much older men.
Over a third of women believe that if a woman is dating a much older man, he must be very rich and 18 per cent believe that the relationship won’t last.
Maybe not so unbelievably, a quarter of women said that if they saw a younger woman with a much older man, they would tarnish them a gold digger.
Women admitted that they are more financially dependent on men, with 55 per cent saying that they couldn’t afford to pay rent or a mortgage if they were on their own, compared to only 24 per cent of men.
This financial stability was one of the biggest reasons that women often went for older man when choosing a partner.
Other reasons for women choosing older men are that you can learn a different perspective from your partner, as well as your youth rubbing off on the older partner.
We were a little shocked when we saw that Marc Anthony, 44, and Chloe Green, 21, were wandering round Disneyland arm in arm.
The singer, who was married to Jennifer Lopez and has two children with her, was seen cuddling and smooching the Topshop heiress whilst on a trip to Disneyland in California.
Things must have become pretty serious as they had taken Marc’s two children along with them, with Chloe even carrying his little girl on her arm.
