    Re: Differnce in age: What's your view on having an older/younger partner?

    I've developed quite a pessimism when it comes to love. It brings out the worst in people (also the other way around.) I'm only 19, but I feel like the tragic hero of Jungian psych. The Arabic tale of Majnun and Layla (layla Arab. lit. "night") later made into a grand epic by Persian poets, seems to mirror my situation a bit. Majnun ("madman") is driven nuts by his love for Layla, which later turns to a search for God. (Layla - Al'lah.) This became an integral parable in Persian Sufism, majnun is jalal (Divine Majesty) searching for union with layla, jamal (Divine Beauty).

    I'm going to the land of the East beyond the East (India) next spring, for study abroad, but also to scope it out and establish a network of people, (I'll be staying with a host family, and learning Hindi in an intensive course.) I've always had an interest in paganism, which naturally moved into Hinduism. One can never stop learning about all the things Hinduism has developed.. Sanskrit, scriptures, Shyama Sangit (Songs to the Mother Kali), Ayurvedic medicine, art, Tantra. I am particularly interested in Vedanta and Saktiism (Devi Bhakti).

    I'll be in Rajasthan, land of the Rajputs, who were instrumental in taming Muslim agression, and keeping them from marauding and converting all the Hindus. The South Indian Sivaji Maharaj invoked the goddess Durga on the eve of battle and decimated Mughal forces, thus preserving Hindu Dharma.

    Anyhow, I appreciate both girls my age, and older women, but I have a special affinity for older women.

    AW: Differnce in age: What's your view on having an older/younger partner?

    It is simpler than one might think.
    Women reach their sexual maturity at the age of 12-13.
    The older they get, the less probable is a healthy offspring.
    Without modern medicine a 40 year-old womand couldn't give birth to a child.
    So let's say, the perfect woman is between 13 and 25 (in terms of natural ability to reproduce).

    For men it is completely different. A man can "shoot his wad" with equal quality from the age of 12 to 70 (approximately).

    That's why it is natural for a man to have a younger woman as a partner.
    Furthermore, the average man picks his mate based more on appearance, the average woman on the other hand on matters of security (financially, socially).

    My wife is 15 months younger than me. That is partially coincidence, partially based on my age when I married her (I was 23).
    If I had married 10 years later, my wife would probably have been much younger than me.
    It is important for a healthy modern relationship to be in the same generation.
    The difference between 15 and 20 is much bigger than between 55 and 60, obviously.

    You are wrong about this. We've discussed it furthur in this thread: http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=51053

    I'd love to have you read through posts in the thread on teens and having children and share some of your sources which contradict information provided. Also, what evidence do you have that a 40 year old woman couldn't give birth to a child without modern medicine? This is not true either.

    Some women can have children after 40 without medical help. Births to women over 40 use to be more common then they are now. I came across this fact while doing genealogical research. What I noticed is that most mothers who had children after 40 generally did'nt start having children until their early to mid twenties. I have a greatgreatgrandmother who had who youngest child, my greatgrandfather, less then two weeks before her 47th birthday (this was in 1839). She had her first child at 25. My 3xgreatgrandmother had her youngest child in her 50th year (1817), she also having given birth for the first time at 25. 47 & 50 are the highest age-at-birth for mothers I came across, but 40-45 was not uncommon during the 18th & 19th centuries in America. It was in the 20th century that births to women over 40 decline substantially as did the overall birthrate.

    Sexual maturity reached when your body continues to grow for at least 5-7 more years? What exactly are you smoking?

    Obviously I was referring to Drömmarnas Stig's weirdo post. Your reading comprehension is abysmal.
