In the years since I have had several interesting and satisfying relationships, two of which were with men 13 years my junior. And what about age as it relates to older women involved with younger men? Our connection was excellent. She is 13 years older than her mate. But what about age? No matter what your age, to go forward in life with an eye toward becoming a kinder, more loving person sounds like an infinitely wiser approach to keeping love alive than worrying over the inevitable appearance of laugh lines. In April , they had an intimate beachside wedding in Hawaii, and they now have a 6-year-old son, Marek. When she reached a certain mature age, with her children grown, she and her older husband would part. New French President Emmanuel Macron, 39, has a wife, Brigitte, who is 24 years his senior , while supermodel Heidi Klum, 43, has been dating art dealer Vito Schnabel, 30 , for more than three years. Questions related to aging cropped up, naturally. Nicole Wipp, 45, and Marcus Sutherland, 33, met when she was in law school and he was an undergrad. Now in my senior years I am very happy to have as a partner a man of my own age and background, one with whom I can share cultural references and the medical miseries of ageing bodies; in other words, a peer.
