It is not desperation that a woman wants to get married at the age of 40 or any other age,the reason is they don't want to be a free milk ,so if a man wants milk he has to buy the Cow...

I don't actually know any that are desperate to get married, just ones that desperately want to get unmarried.

That would be true of women of any age. It couldn't have escaped anybodys notice that the instant a woman gets married she starts turning into a cow.

Jazzmin,
I had much the same experience. There was a period of time where I was quite interested in remarriage because being married was what I was used to. But I got through that,and now actually find men who don't want to date me, because I DON'T want to get married or live together.

Why are women over 40 so desperate to get married?

I don't know if that holds true for the women in their 40s (or I haven't witnessed it). However, I knew a few older gentlemen who dates women in their 50s and 60s and they have witnessed a heightened desire for women wanting to get married at that age. In most cases (according to them) the underlying rational for this increased desire was caused by one or more of the following:
- Access to health insurance
- Underfunded retirement accounts
- Cost of living reductions
- Transfer of pension or other benefits in case of death

Oh yeah the free meals. lol!! Who is desperate enough to sit through a meal with some loser just so they save a few bucks?

Oh yeah and the gold diggers. This from guys who have no gold, of course.

oh yeah the third date rule. Who wants to put out just because it is the third time and the guy has spend $20. lol!!

I don't know any woman over 40 who is desperate to get married. Just the reverse. Once they have had their families. are divorced and free, the last thing they want is to be the domestic slave or dealing with his kids from the previous relationship. Unless of course they are really supportive of each other, genuine in their feelings, it is financially beneficial to all and then nothing better.

Exactly. I know more women my age who DON'T want to get married than I those who do. I don't, I'm very happy just living in my beautiful house with my kids and just going out on dates when I feel like it. I don't need to wash somebody else's underwear again to feel "complete". I was married before for 20 years, and I'm good.

I'm sure there are more than a few men that would like the same gig ^^^^. Have some woman take them out, pay the bill, have some sex and then go home, to their own home. Why would a man want to marry again either. Most men feel the same way - been there/done that/have the divorce papers.

BTW, I think it's an age thing with both genders. Both genders are questioning "why marry again?" It's not like someone in their late 40s and beyond wants to start a family, most are content in their living space, work space, head space. Why clutter it up? Personally, I like a shared home and a shared life, but that's just me.

ahh Karma, how I wish I was 45 again and fit!!!!. I would be doing exactly as you are. Internet dating had more stigma than it does now and meeting people was harder than it is now also.

It is my experience that it is the men that want the marriage situation again, mainly I guess they want someone to run their house etc and it is well known that men do not do well alone, as women do. A hot guy with plenty going on can have his pick of women and wine and dine them etc and move on to the next beauty but the average guy really wants some kind of steady domestic set up. Correct me if I am wrong, guys.

I don't relate to those type of men.

I seek like men who do want to re-marry.


BTW, I think it's an age thing with both genders. Both genders are questioning "why marry again?"


...and I answer: WHY NOT!



It's not like someone in their late 40s and beyond wants to start a family, most are content in their living space, work space, head space.


I'm in my early forties and I'd love to have another chance at having another baby (I just don't prefer to raise somebody else's children). I work from home and I'm also a home-maker happily chained to my stove and washing machine. My life is centered around my home and academic life (whether I center it here or abroad). But that's me.

I'm sure you don't relate to those type of men. I was pointing out that many women are happy to date around, have men pick up the tab, have fun, have sex and then go home.....and that many men would probably like the same gig - have a woman take them out, pay the tab, have fun, have sex and then go home. Some women supplement their income quite nicely by having a few dates every week.

So no, you wouldn't relate to this type of men, you're used to being the one catered to and paid for. Just guessing, I don't know for sure.
