So I came across a tweet, by one @preshi__ asking who made the law that the wife must be younger than the husband when it comes to marriage.
Well, Africa, was my first answer. In my own opinion, that is a very poor mentality, using age to define marriage. Let’s get this straight. That you as a man is older than your wife, neither means your marriage will be perfect nor she will respect you. Even our parents who followed this so-called “Mental law” still quarrel and fight, and if you go deeper to know the cause of the quarrel, nothing concerns it with their age or so whatever.
or tell me, have you seen your mum who is younger than your father, saying: “it’s not because you are older than me” or the other way round a man to his wife: “I’m older than you”. So then, why do we define marriage with age? I stand to be proved wrong.
I am not saying that it is a bad idea or belief, all I am saying is that it is a matter of choice and option. That as Male, you married someone older than you doesn’t make you less sensible or an outcast. We should get rid of this poor mentality, besides, I have dated girls, and all of them so far are older than me. Age was not a problem.
A very short story: I was having a one on one discussion about relationships with a lady, She was gisting me about her current relationship, and she loved the guy so much, and so on and so forth. But, then had a problem with him, when he asked for her hand in marriage, and she declined. I asked her why, and she said: “because he is younger than me”
I was like W*F, but you have been all smiles and enjoying the relationship, the way you talked to me about it, I wished I was in the guy’s shoe. She didn’t know what to say. The only thing that came out from her mouth was, it’s just age.
Hey, you reading this post, will you choose not to marry your happiness and joy and then opt for a lesser option just because of age? Drop your comments.
