Servey older women dating younger men
While some relationships fall by the wayside (Madonna and Jesus supposedly split because they had 'nothing in common'), others do succeed (Demi and Ashton have been married for five years, while Sam and Aaron are expecting a baby). The list of female celebrities dating considerably younger men is growing.
As a result, it's becoming more the 'norm'.
"But this can happen between couples of the same age too.
The biggest problem when dating a younger man is procreation."If he wants to become a father, but she's already raised her children and doesn't want - or is past the age where it's possible - to have more, it could spell the end of the relationship.
"The difficulties faced by couples in these relationships are no different to those faced by anyone in any relationship," says Carolin.
"Age is not the problem, but things like different values, lifestyles, morals, even spending habits, could be." These could be linked to age, but they might also be a result of upbringing, family life or personal habits.
