Why is it so much less common for older women to marry younger men than the opposite?

I think that is crazy! I would love to marry a woman 15-20 years older than me (as long as I was super in to her)... I think it's an incredibly attractive idea on multiple levels.

Updates:
But if a guy is like 25 and a woman is like 45 she could be pretty successful and still be able to have kids, and then there really isn't that much pressure on the guy to be so.

  • Younger women have a larger time table of being fertile.

    Older guys are generally more stable and secure financially. They also tend to be over the girl-chasing phase of their life and are ready to settle down with a real relationship.

  • Women generally prefer older men since they are more mature and usually more financially stable which is good for raising a child.

  • My guess is that most women like older men (I don't mean much older, just older). The ladies here can correct me if I'm wrong.

  • Maybe it's something to do with the fact that marriage is about specifying the guy who is responsible for the kids that a woman births, and old women don't do that as much.

  • Men look for beauty and reproductive ability in a woman.

    Women look for money, power and status in a man.

    With that in mind, the answer is pretty obvious.

  • Because younger women are better for having kids and older men have more money
