marrying woman 5years older


Nigerian men have speculated a whole lot of things about marrying women of their same age brackets or even a bit older, it has been a trend between the Naija males. While some have even taken it up to the ‘am not interested in marrying her if she’s up to 30’ extent.


Male preference for younger females with specific age of around 25 years implied that:

  • ·       Reproductive investment. Fertility was a stronger ultimate cause of mate preference than reproductive value as data suggested that fertility peaks in females around mid-twenties.

  •        She will not be wrinkled in the next 5 years compared to a 30+ woman.
  • ·       Someone who he will easily intimidate and command respect from easily. They prefer plucking these young women who are inexperienced in relationships and life matters from their parent’s homes and their comfort zones, these girls who does not yet have a steady source of incomes to support the man in the marriage.



This syndrome has also extended to the females who also have preference for older and specific males. As they are the higher investing sex, females tend to be slightly more demanding when picking a mate especially younger females. At younger age she will also insists on only dating men based on what their career is or according to his achievements. “He’s a lawyer” “He’s a doctor” “He’s an engineer” “He’s Successful, etc.


It is good to be ambitious, even better to break the glass ceilings, but at what price?
