Gone are the days when marriage was solely for an older man and a
younger woman. Love is taking front seat and age is relegated to the
back seat. As they say, age is nothing but a number, isn’t it?
in a society where women are meant to be seen not heard, the men are
expected to be muscular, stronger, husky and older. There used to be
stigma attached to being married to younger man. Well, nowadays the
stigma is fast fading away.
