Age – Just a number or more …

Someone once said – “Behind every successful man, there is a woman”

I believed it to be the entire story for a long time until someone remarked that there is a tiny epilogue to it which says – “… To pull him back” It may sound crass in the first place and I am no proponent of the same. But there are accounts which corroborate the above .

In most cases, it may not be a very explicit ‘pull’ which makes it to the public eye but over a period of time, that force empowers and the bloke succumbs assuming it to be his destiny.

Before I further enrage the female readers of this ‘piece of s#$%’ (yea … that is what you are thinking .. right?), let me clarify that whatever is mentioned above could equally apply to men as well. It is just that some egghead chose to phrase it like that and, as with most other things, it has stuck since then.

Anyways, as must be clear by now, this post deals with relationships – a cobweb no spider can dream of weaving. It is only humans and their so called intellect that can introduce complexities of such nature that it becomes difficult even for them to deal with it, at a later stage.

Based on the above, I strongly believe that individual ambitions and aspirations go for a toss sooner or later when one is in a serious relationship. Anything serious demands time, time which was otherwise spent in pursuit of one’s goals.

But, another aspect which I am not very sure about is the age difference between the partners. There is no set age for maturity. Life itself is the best teacher and it chooses its pupils randomly. Some graduate at a very tender age, some later in life whereas … some never!

Does this mean that age has got nothing to do with it?  And, that it should be only the last concern, if at all?

Oh yes, I know about Michael Douglas and Zeta Jones and also Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Closer home, celebrity couples that come to mind are Tendulkar and wife and the no-longer-couple Saif Ali Khan  and Amrita Singh. I am sure there will be numerous other examples who are not in the limelight.


Kindly do not bother as to where this thought process has its seed sown. Instead, yours truly would appreciate if you could take out a few seconds to answer the poll below:-

Results will be shared before the next post!

  3. you have a point there… in a serious relationship your priorities may change… but then I am no expert on individual ambitions… as for the age difference, I don’t really think it makes a difference… it is all about the matching of frequency of two people..

  5. Kunal, can’t agree more with the frequency logic. I too feel the same but ‘his’ apprehensions don’t cease.

    Sam, I see … But I doubt if the two minds work on the same lines coz the responses to the poll from you two differ 😛

  6. hmmm….I would have really liked to bother about the “seeddb” of the thoughts…but maybe I can reserve that for another day…

    something which I found a bit ambiguous in this post is how rapidly you have moved, covering different areas and finally landing up in the last paragraph about the whiter sex being more mature (aged!). I guess it was deliberately done hinting at something (seeddb) 😉

  7. Mani, ‘seeddb’ is corrupted, no point in trying to diagnose.
    ambiguous … it might be, that is why I posted it under ‘Mumbo Jumbo’ 😛

  9. hmm..
    age difference might matter if its huge, at least i feel.
    I guess 2 or 3 years of difference won’t matter.
    Let us be pragmatic, if there is a gap of 10 yrs.. in such case when girl is 40, the guy would be 30, now it matters, don’t you think?.
    after all we are humans who are driven by their emotions..

    hey one more example

  10. Mani, O yes it exists but it is ephemeral!

    Anon, Thanks for the comment. Couldn’t make much of it, though 😛
