You can get married at any age: typical female mistakes

Statistics on marriage 50+

Every year it becomes more and more popular to get married or remarried at the age of 50-60 years. According to statistics, the percentage of such unions is increasing; in 2013, more than 60% of weddings were recorded among people over the age of 50.

Experts have found that men and women have different views on relationships after 50 years. For example, among people who divorced their first partner or were widowed, men often move more easily to new relationships than representatives of the fair half of the population. After a long relationship, it is much more difficult for women to take a step towards a new life.

Experts have found that beautiful mature ladies are less active in searching for a new partner than the stronger sex, but at the same time they are no less in need of a partner. There are many advantages found in personal life after 50 years.

Alla Pugacheva Maxim Galkin

Maxim Galkin is the fifth husband of Alla Pugacheva. When fans learned about the romance between the Diva and the showman, no one believed in its longevity. The 27-year age difference seemed an insurmountable obstacle. However, the artists have been together for 19 years, almost nine of which are officially married. On September 18, 2013, the surrogate mother gave birth to a pair of twins - Lisa and Harry. Maxim Galkin calmly discusses the age difference with his wife:

“I have been living with Alla since 2001. Therefore, talk about the fact that I love the elderly - I have heard it all many times...

I don’t like older people sexually. I love one person, I fell in love with her, I was 25, she was 52, we have a difference of 27 years. I fell in love with Alla. I don't care how old she is. I love her not because of her age, but because of who she is. We feel good together, and between us there was everything that is beautiful between two people who love each other. And we had children, because children could only appear in love,” said the TV presenter in 2018.

What are the advantages of getting married at 50?

Experts have noted many advantages in mature relationships among people aged 50+.

  1. Couples who entered into a relationship at a certain age do not harbor unnecessary illusions about the union and life in general. The happiness of such couples lies in the fact that they strive to share the best emotions with their other half.
  2. Living together makes life easier, allowing you to cut down on expenses. According to experts, dating someone interested in economic issues at the age of 50 is not so bad. The cost of living at this age is very relevant, and together it is much easier to cope with all the problems. This is beyond romanticism.
  3. Official certification of the relationship gives one and the other partner the right to help and make decisions in difficult situations when one of the family members is unable for some medical reason.
  4. But the most important advantage is romance, which inspires people and gives them a lot of energy, strength and happiness.

Love is available to a person at any age. If there is a person with whom you want to be close, he is reliable and always provides support, then why not, age is not a barrier, but another opportunity.

What you need to be prepared for in marriage after 50 years

Relationships in adulthood require a special approach, experts say. Psychologists have given recommendations that will help make the union more favorable and successful.

  1. There should be no tension between partners; you need to approach with an open heart and soul. Then happiness will reign in the union. You shouldn’t be afraid of yourself, you should always be who you are and express your thoughts more often. Honesty is essential in love.
  2. A partner's independence is as necessary as other qualities. Marriage is not a reason to deprive a person of a piece of him or free creative flight. Relationships at this age should be more free, since over the years certain preferences and even a schedule have already been formed.
  3. At this age, you need to enjoy what a person has. You need to live every day like it’s your last, having fun and enjoying each other’s company. It’s worth starting with new experiences that unite.

At the moment, there are many examples of how people after 50 years found their soul mates and became happy, despite their age. Marriage at 50+ can be the beginning of a new life.

Married after 50: does a grandmother need a personal life?

1. Couples who marry after 50 no longer have illusions about aging and the end of life. Their marital happiness lies in a conscious desire to share the best and worst of everything that awaits both partners.

2. Most living expenses decrease dramatically when two people start running a household together. Here's what Ramani Durvasula, a psychologist in Los Angeles, says:

Marrying for economic reasons is not a bad idea. Marriage is a utilitarian institution that our culture has over-romanticized. Issues such as insurance, retirement income, household expenses, and even general Social Security benefits are important and pressing issues.

3. A formal marriage is the easiest way to get permission to visit your partner in the hospital. It also gives you the right to make medical decisions if your spouse is unable to do so.

And, of course, no one canceled romance! Love can overtake us at any age!
