Dating a older woman
If he's married to a 60 year-old woman, he's married to someone who, on average, is physiologically ten years younger and thus likely healthier and more vigorous, physically and mentally.If you'd feel more comfortable growing old with someone in similar shape to you, consider an older woman.
