17 dating 37 year old older woman dating younger
Jason Whitlock of had a great take on the situation during Wednesday’s .
Newsworthiness is judged by the expected level of interest, and people will be interested in this story, even if their interest initially was heightened by the unspoken impression that Sanchez would be spending time wearing orange instead of green.
In fact, the idea that older men are more financially stable is flawed.
As The Frisky points out, an older man might make more money, but he probably has to pay alimony, child support, college tuition for his other kids, and stash away some cash for his imminent nursing care.
Other studies show an even larger preferred age gap between men and women.
A 5-month study by a dating site which buys and sells first dates found the preferred age gap to be 6 years.
That’s hardly reflects the increasing age gap preference! As Psychology Today points out, women today have more career choices and are getting closer to equal pay, which means they are feeling less pressured to get married in order to achieve stability.
Sorry, but the sad truth is that women are attracted to wealth.
You Tango phrased it a bit more nicely by saying “women choose men who offer resources and stability.”Don’t believe money has something to do with it?
Just consider what this study found: This doesn’t mean you should assume that every woman dating an older man is a gold digger.
And the official story of Sanchez and a 17-year-old girl, which really doesn’t do anything other than provide enough detail to prove fairly convincingly that the relationship occurred, explains early in the narrative that Sanchez broke no laws. Well, if the age of consent in New York were 18, it would have been a Lawrence Taylor/Mary Kay Le Tourneau-type case, with Sanchez facing jail time due to a legal system that provides an artificial barrier to the ability of one human being to consent to sexual relations with a sufficiently older person.
Even without the specter of criminal misconduct, it’s a story because it involves the highest-profile player on the highest-profile team in the NFL.
