When my wife got married previously, she was 23, and he was 35. Now she's 65, and he's an old geezer

This thread has no real point.

I mean... people grow up, make decisions in their lives, and make compromises as a result of their life decisions.

uh huh.

Had to ask each one how the heck did you end up with a 3-5 yo old at your age and everyone of them had a story about the younger 2nd or 3rd wife.

Being newly divorced I decided then I would not date anyone 8 years or more younger but more importantly anyone who could still reproduce.

Worse than having a wife 10 years younger is having a kid that's 50 years younger.

Hell no.
Haha, no divorce but my husband has a kid at 45, my brother has one at 47. These kids will be taking care of us in nursing home. Maybe. Both wives are 8 years younger.
My husband maybe old, but he’s the energetic one in the marriage.

And there is a specific chat thread in this forum for stuff like this when you just want to post random musings or observations. Stating that life sometimes has unintended consequences isn't something many people would consider a discussion, with the give and take of varying opinions and an exchange of information and ideas.

I'm currently dating a lady who's 58 (7 years younger), she runs half marathons with her daughters and we work out together.

Many good benefits for a slightly younger one that stays in good shape and active.
I just hope I can keep up with the challenge and her needs.

Very good benefits.
