A study by the University of Oxford into the difference in ma­turity between genders has revealed that men mature well into their 40s.

It is often seen that men marry younger women. Is it because they mature later, or women quickly?

I am of the view that men should marry later, when they are in their late 30s. However, they must marry women in their 20s.

This might also help to curb the high rate of divorce.

Some men will divorce their wives only to marry younger ones, replacing the old model with a newer one.

Sometimes they do not even divorce, but have extra marital affairs with younger women.

It is unfair to these young women, as their chances of getting married are reduced. The older men just keep them as trophies.

I have also noticed that if you are a successful woman, men are afraid of proposing – no matter what age you are. It is rare that men propose to successful women.

Many of the men I went to school with come forward to tell me that they were afraid of me, but have always loved me.

It might be that they only now think they are in your league.

Most professional women are divorced.

One of the reasons might be that they earn more than their husbands or that their stature is higher than that of the husband’s.

If men could marry later, this might not happen, because younger women will only be starting their careers whilst the men would already be higher up on the professional ladder, earning more than the women.

If this could be the case, we will have mature men marrying quickly maturing women.

It will also solve the problem of extra-marital affairs often resulting from older women entering menopause and experiencing a lower libido.

My mother and her friends were younger than their husbands and it was acceptable.

I know a lot of people will say I am talking nonsense. However, just sit and think about it. It makes sense and will deal with many social ills.

Women will not have to mother their husbands and children. Husbands will be more mature and settled.

They would have finished playing and be eager to settle down and look after their families, and have the means to do so.

Many people will be happy.
