Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

Reasons to Marry an Older Man #6

Lots of visitors have found their way to Shout while looking for information about marrying an older man. To oblige the curious and the thrill seekers, I’m adding reason #6 to my previously published 5 Reasons to Marry an Older Man..

  1. He’s had more time to perfect his aim, which means you’ll spend less time cleaning the toilet or complaining that it needs to be cleaned.
  2. In comparison, you’ll always feel like a young(er) hottie…after all, your silver hair and wrinkles can’t compete.
  3. He’s more interested in stopping to smell the proverbial flowers and less consumed with whining about figuring out what he’s going to be when he grows up.
  4. He’s figured out that passing gas in bed and then pulling the covers over your head is not funny.
  5. He’s better in bed than his younger, more-selfish counterpart. There are some skills that can only be mastered with time and experience.
  6. Your local grocery store most likely offers a weekly senior discount day. During economic uncertainty, the typical five percent is a great savings tool that doesn’t include hassled coupon clipping. It’s also inspiration to prompt your older mate that he should do the weekly food shopping. It’s a win/win for everyone … the only caveat … your adoring husband must admit he’s of age!

    And with this economy … 5% is worth admitting your age!

    Amys last blog post..Manners Teaching Master … not!

  • My husband is 5 years older than me, but he doesn’t qualify for AARP just yet. My parents only recently hit the senior level and they’re not sure how they feel about it so far.

    As per #1, not if he has Pakinson’s. :P

  • My hubby is 15 years older than me. The only one I can relate to is #2 but I’m going to have to try #6. He IS a member of AARP, his aim is HORRID, I’m not EVEN going to comment on the others :)

  • Farting will never cease being funny to me. It transcends all cultures, classes and creeds. There’s a great video we watched on America’s Funniest Videos last weekend featuring a wedding in which the officiant let one rip right as he pronounced the couple man and wife. It got my vote!

    Amy: That’s exactly what I told my husband but I was the one who had to point out to the cashier that my silver-haired husband does in deed merit the grocery store discount. He was apparently too self conscious. Since when is he shy?

    Memarie Lane: Ah geez. That’s not fair. Even I have to give a pass to a guy with Parkinsons. He can pee all over the toilet, the floor and even the walls, and I’d actually promise not to utter a word.

    Heather: Maybe he needs glasses to help with #1 and please do insist on not just #6, but #5 as well.

    Doug: Now let’s set the record straight: I didn’t say that it isn’t funny SOMETIMES, I’m just objecting to the whole turtle in the bed game. Pleeaase!

    Jen: Hah!

  • These are all great reasons – HA!

    Thanks for coming by – nice to see you. Hope to see you again soon – Kellan

  • He should also get the Senior discount on Movie tickets!!! That ain’t nothing to sneeze at.

  • You hit my funny nerve with that one. I have three sons and a husband that I KNEW would never teach them aim. My solution? – I taught them only to sit until they got wise and realized that Mum’s aren’t the ones who determine those sorts of things! Now I just make them clean their bathroom…especially the walls!

    Come on get real. Young women out there actually take this positive spin as valuable information and go after older men hoping for prince charming. They are likely to end up with an old frog once the romance phase ends. Incontinence, ill health, lack of friends willing to accept both of you. You have to take on board all his issues. Life isn’t discovered together. He is looking back while you are looking forward.He might have debts from a prior marriage and responsibilities to older children. Christmas day, Mother’s Day where will he be? You will always be second and may never be accepted by your own and his extended families. As for all this sexual experience, is that with the aid of blue tablets that these guys need.
