Well-known Orthodox figure Church of the Eternal Logos creator David Patrick Harry's girlfriend is 22 years old. He's 34. 12 year age gap.
Parents and everyone involved are happy with it - they prefer it this way and are encouraging it for reasons that are obvious to many. I would certainly be very supportive of my daughter marrying a successful Christian man like him with his head on his shoulders. When and if I have a daughter 18-22, I do NOT prefer her marrying a younger man. Late 20s minimum and ideally someone mid 30s.
I'm 34. 6ft. Athletic build. Good-looking. Make a quarter million a year. No kids. No health issues. No criminal record. Loads of practical life experience. Im easily in the top 10% of men. I didn't really feel like I had become a man and grounded in myself until I was 30, and that wasn't for lack of trying. It just naturally unfolded that way. My father and many of my friends also have the same sentiment.
I'm not going to settle for an older woman or career-centered woman, and certainly not someone overweight, with a bunch of tattoos, high body count, mouth like a sailor, a 'masculine/aggressive' attitude, etc. I want maximized feminine qualities. If you don't know what those are or you find it offensive to express them, you're part of the problem! Men and women have different roles!
I'm not writing this to be mean or bigoted or prideful or anything negative. This type of talk should be inspiring and humbling. People nowadays especially need to constantly be reminded of this reality with how corrupted the dating market is, and both men and women are to blame for perpetuating the state of the current dating market, but men as leaders need to step up and stop letting these bad ideas fester in favor of simping/lust.
Women will change their behavior if men have clearly defined preferences and work towards being worthy of them. If you want a patriarchy, act like a patriarch. If you want a brothel, act accordingly. We reap what we sow. Men try as best as you can to mirror Jesus. Women try your best to mirror Mary. These are our icons. Stop looking at celebrities as role models.
My wife doesn't need to work - I want her to focus on child-rearing and homemaking - and she should also want this otherwise we won't be in a relationship. I want an extremely feminine woman willing to submit to me. This isn't up for debate. She will know all this from the beginning. These are hard lines. It's not a matter of me being controlling - she is going to WANT this life or not. It's a prerequisite. Nothing will be forced.
Men in my percentile that are in their peak sexual market value prime are going to get females in their prime also and we can be very picky about our standards.
