Men can have children at any age...without viagra...that was done all the time in the 19th century when a 50 year old man could marry a 20 year old woman and it wasn't a big deal.

If I married a 20 year old there would be no problem with me having children...if a woman over 50 married a 20 year old man I really don't think she could have children...that's just reality, I'm not trying to create ill feelings here...

In the 19th century the average man did not live past the age of 40, so I don't think he was marrying a 20 year old, much less having children with her.


IF, and that is a big IF, you married a 20 year old, being over the age of 50, there is a greater likelihood that you and your spouse would have a much harder time conceiving. As men get older they have a decline in testosterone, and therefore a decline in fertility. This also creates a greater chance of fathering children with chromosomal problems. So just because a man can make sperm doesn't mean that it's high-quality sperm. Children of older fathers are at a MUCH greater risk of learning and behavioral disabilities, such as autism. No ill feelings here...just facts.

This seems a bit low for developed countries. Is this figure life expectancy at birth (which would be affected by infant mortality, which was much higher then than it is today (if you exclude abortion)) or life expectancy at age 18 (or higher)?

I may regret jumping into this conversation, but I don't think its only men who act so irresponsibly. I won't defend the men that chase illusions and I find this type of behavior lacking of moral integrity. At the same time, the stereotypes and subsequent biting remarks seem venomous and uncomfortable to read. The comments are a bit intimating and there's a terrible bitterness here that makes healing difficult. As Christians we are called to forgiveness and the practice of the presence of God in our daily lives. It makes me sad how men can be selfish and as a man I feel ashamed. Nevertheless, as someone who feel they've been hurt by a woman in a so-called mid-life crisis I pray for patience and guidance. Some of comments here seem to come from a place of great pain and it just saddens me a lot. I am praying for these men now and all those who've been hurt by them.

If sexual attraction is so important to you now, it will still be when you are married for 20 years when your spouse may no longer be sexually attractive (since you say you are only sexually attracted to women 20 to 40 years old). There are two parts to attraction needed for a healthy marriage, according to John Paul II in Theology of the Body, sexuality and sentimentality. The lesser of the two, in a long lasting marriage, is sexuality; sentimentality is what holds the marriage together, not sexuality. In regards to your statement that you will remain married for life, unlike those who have not. What if your spouse files for divorce from you? We are a "no fault" country and there is nothing you can do about it but sign the papers. I agree with your statement that if you do divorce you will not remarry as according to scripture we are married to our spouse until death do us part. I am glad to see that you have opened up your search to include women closer to your age and hope that God puts a desire in your heart to be sexually attracted to women in that age group. Blessings to you.

This is why I think it is so important to actually put some effort into remaining sexually attractive to your spouse. It is a ongoing project.

I think I had my crisis the night of my twenty fifth birthday. I lied all night staring into the ceiling thinking half my life had passed by and I'd achieved nill, nada, nothing... That was then. Now I like growing older leaving the insecurity of the youth way behind me.

My dad was born in 1904. Life expectancy at birth for him was 45.
