Dating age difference formula
After analysing 3,000 people, it found that couples with a five-year age gap are 18 per cent more likely to split up than those of the same age.
Interestingly, that figure rose to 39 per cent for couples with a 10-year age gap and a shocking 95 per cent for those with a 20-year age gao. Contrary to popular belief, researchers believe that the sweet spot lies in just a one-year gap between spouses who have a much smaller chance of separation at just 3 per cent.
With an age gap of 25 years, Macron, recently spoke out about the international obsession with the age difference between himself and his partner.
“If I was 20 years older than my wife, nobody would think for a single second that we couldn’t be legitimately together,“ he told Le Parisien.
A really interesting analysis (and quite sophisticated - maybe done in R?
Based on the formula, a 21-year-old could date someone as young as 17, an 18-year-old could be with a 16-year old, and a 16-year-old with a 15-year-old.
Having a partner who is much older or younger has become somewhat trendy in today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, perhaps even more so among young adults.
And that means I can date a woman who is 16." From where did this ridiculous rule come?
You can date someone as young as half your age plus seven years? It's no wonder that so many women feel that men their own age are too immature.
