How Different Age Gaps Affect A Relationship

Roughly five years difference is ideal

Research has found that the bigger the age gap, the higher the chance there is for divorce. In fact, couples with a 20-plus age gap face a 95 percent chance of divorce. That being said, I don’t necessarily believe that being the exact same age as your partner means the least chances for divorce. Five to seven years difference seems to be a sweet spot for most of the long-term couples I know, who’ve enjoyed multi-decade marriages. This age difference lets men feel they’re dating someone younger (which, hate it or love it, they find attractive), and gives women a partner who is mentally and emotionally their equal.
