Why is it that the majority of African men have a problem dating a woman who is either older than them or who is considered "old" by our cultural standards.
I recently took a poll among African men and asked at what age is a woman considered too "old" to be considered as marriage material and to say the least, i was astonished at the results. 70% of men considered women over the age of 27 too old to be married, while only 10% of men thought otherwise. i was shocked with the results because upon getting their feedback, when asked why they thought 27 was too old for marriage no one could give me a concrete answer backed by facts or numbers. Most of the men thought the way they thought only because it was something they heard in passing, something their parents mentioned to them or its just something that everyone thinks.
I believe, among other things, that this is one of the major problems among our culture, but before i give my opinion i would like to know what others have to say. please comment below your opinion.
