The older women are not to be interfering busybodies, but they are to be humble advisors and teachers.
So, the next time Hugh Hefner gets engaged to a 20-something or Buzz Aldrin dates someone 30 years his junior, perhaps we should encourage them; chances are, their marriages won't end in divorce.
And, even if Demi and Ashton don't make it, we shouldn't give up hope on December-May marriages, either; if Hugh Jackman, 42, and his 55-year-old wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, can last for 15 years -- happily, one presumes -- so can the rest of us.
Judgment aside, marriages in which the wife is older than her husband are more likely to be troubled -- and the age difference doesn't have to be all that big.
In fact, couples in which the wife is just five years older are three times more likely to divorce than couples of the same age.
Some studies say if a wife is five or more years younger than her hubby, they're much more likely to avoid divorce.
Others say she needs to be four to six years younger.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.The book of Titus is a brief New Testament Epistle located only a short distance before the book of Hebrews.Titus was the spiritual leader among the people on the island of Crete, located in the Mediterranean Sea a short distance southeast of the country of Greece.In the present lesson, we will look at God’s instructions for those who are younger in the faith.
