That's because marriages in which the woman is much older than her husband often lead to divorce.Not to say that they're not happy for a while -- certainly Demi and Ashton have appeared to be, as well as the eight couples in a 2006 study by Sandra L. Proulx in which the wives were a decade or more older than their husbands (an admittedly small sample).Still, the women in the study admitted to a certain insecurity about aging, which is just never going to be a good thing in a relationship."Since marrying a younger husband deviates from what is regarded as normal, these couples could be regarded as outsiders and receive less social support.This could result in a less joyful and more stressful life, reduced health, and finally, increased mortality."
