If you already don’t agree on your beliefs and values you will be lacking that strength in your foundation. This is strictly my opinion, but I believe if there is too much of a difference in age, it invites discord into the relationship instead of strengthening it.But another important reason to date specifically Catholic women is because many times in an “unequally yoked” relationship, one spouse abandons his or her faith for the other’s and you might be tempted to give up the precious gift of your Catholic faith in exchange for something else just to please your spouse.

Why women date older men At every age women tend to be attracted to older men. One reason is that older men have more life experience.
But stay away from the schoolyards, and don’t play with anyone’s fragile emotions.
It’s more likely, however, that you just want to turn the clock back a decade or so and recapture the years that just slipped away in a bad marriage, a career-absorbed spinsterhood or a post-divorce black hole.
Fortunately, that’s changing as more older-woman and younger-man couplings make headlines.
