What Does the Bible Say About..Spousal Ages?

Should the male always be older than the female according to the Bible?


It is neither biblically approved or forbidden to marry an older woman. The Bible does not address the issue at all. Generally the Bible says nothing about the ages of the spouses so we donít know if any man in the Bible was married to an older woman or not. Even if there is such an example in the Bible it says nothing about approval or disapproval.

I hope there is nothing wrong with marrying an older woman, as I did so 36 years ago.
