There ARE normal, nice people here. Hang in there and keep swinging.
Roy since you are my age here in this thread, I would be interested to hear your thoughts on what I said
I get wanting to have children, but there is no guarantee, for either the younger woman, or for you, to be fertile. Find a Godly woman, be open to women slightly younger, your age, and slightly older (if you go 5 years younger, be brave and look 5 years older), and then let God decide about children for you and your bride.
We all have criteria that are "make or break" for us. I respect your criteria. May you find what you are seeking.
However, fertility is a complex, and the man's health is also an issue. Young people can also have fertility problems. It is not always tied to age. There are infertile men in their 20s and infertile women in their 20s. There are healthy couples who struggle to conceive. There are also women who give birth well into their forties. Adoption is a beautiful option to have a family for those medically unable to have their own. A husband or a wife, both children of God, deserve to be treated like human beings, and not like sperm donors or a womb for hire. Nothing will scare away the opposite sex more than being treated like a source for genetic material.
pretty name. I agree. You said it better than me a few commentaries before. The question is, are women also ready to accept a younger man?
Mark...you mentioned you look at women your age, and younger. And you're defensive that women in their 20's (6-7 years younger than you) aren't considering you,.
What about women 6-7 years older than you? If a woman who is 42 were to contact you, would you give her serious consideration?
I was just thinking the same thing.
