Well it is most common for the guy to be older than the wife, but many times thats not the case. Khadijah was older than the prophet Muhammed :sl: :j:

 

Personally for myself, I would prefer the guy to be older than me. I think it would make me uncomfortable if he was younger than me. If however he was a good muslim, and only maybe a year or less younger than me, than I would insha'Allah not pass him up.

You made the poll very straightforward, so I had to choose the first choice. :no:

 

I would prefer that he's a few years older, just because women mature faster. However, I would marry a younger guy if everything worked out, and Allah :sl: knows best.

Alhamdulillah my fiancee is younger than me, but i polled for "yes i would marry woman older than me" just because Rasool Allah(SAW) did that and married Khadija(peace of Allah be upon her).

was salam.

yes.

 

the physical age of a person relates poorly to their actual age (knowledge, wisdom, generosity).

 

 

peace and love. :sl:

saalam.

 

it is a western trait that "cougars" (older women) chase younger men. young men have always sought the knowledge of older men, and the sexual knowledge of older women. however, men a little older than the woman works.

So i supposed Hasrat Khatijah displayed "western traits" when she married the prophet? Someone i dont think so!!

 

In eastern enviroments men are usually a lot older then women so they can more easily control and dominate them.

Peace,

 

I have a +/- 2 year policy, anything outwith that bracket makes it less likely they'll get my jokes.

Allah(swt) is the best of planners.

 

As marriage is the engagement of the 2 families,making stronger bonds within the Ummah,

forming a companionship,and completing half your deen,if its written for me by Allah(swt) I would marry someone older then me.

 

Preferance would be someone younger though.

 

Buut voted for the 4th option.

 

For marriage and other important decisions,my heart is my primary source and my mind is my secondary source. :sl:
