4 years and 4 months. These figures were codeword to the ideal relationship between two people. It is this difference in age preference for the majority of respondents (40%). Of 2 000 only 1% of women was a lover of men younger than themselves. In men as much as 2% is considered ideal companion older. However, psychologists assert that a difference of 3-4 years is better if the older man in the relationship will be. This recommendation, however, do not follow the successful 40-year-old Gwyneth Paltrow and 36-year-old Chris Martin of Coldplay.
Only a third of the women said that she would like to meet a man for 7 years or older. On the contrary, more than a third of respondents at the sight of couples where the man is much older, think relationships are held exclusively on the financial condition of the men, and the fifth part altogether convinced that such a relationship for a while.
This stereotype oppose such stellar pair as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas and Deborah Lee Furness, who is 13 years older than his chosen Hugh Jackman. Family psychologist Julia Cole just throws up his hands on such a counter and advises couples with a big age difference discuss tete-a-tete plans to further not only the family, but also financial life.
