Does age really matter? According to researchers, in a recent study, a 5-year difference between the couple could mean an 18 percent increase in the chances of divorce compared to couples who are the same age.
The study of more than 3,000 couples also suggests that a 10-year-old difference increases the chance of divorce to 39%, and if the difference is greater than 20 years, those chances may rise to 95%. The difference of only one year represents a 3% chance of separation.
Not everything is a rule (still good) and everything also has the good side. Experts say that the significant age difference between the couple can be very good in many cases. In fact, the authors of the study later admitted that although there was a correlation between age difference and divorce, they could not definitely predict a couple’s risk.
In fact, it’s still possible to believe that being 20 years older than your partner can be an advantage. According to experts, one can bring vitality and the other balance and experience.
If you get along well, have communication and problem-solving ease, and if you love each other, that is far more important than your ages. And if other people see problems with the age difference between you, that’s their problem.
