Age dating difference
" While it's fairly common for a woman to marry an older man, the reverse isn't as much of a social norm. Travis and Leah, who have been married close to 20 years, met while attending the same six-week missions organization training.
"Telling our story never gets old," Leah says, smiling.
In August 2010, Michael Dunn of the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff completed and released the results of a study on age disparity in dating.

Movies and TV shows are also showing women that dates don’t have to be older.
But if money and dating go hand-in-hand, then would (eventual) rising rates in women’s wages lead to less of an age disparity in romantic pairings?Which means that I can date anyone from 38 years-old to 20 (yeeeesh.) and still be considered normal.What I appreciate about the Dating Age Range Formula is that it gives me a nice, 18-year span to dabble within."It feels like it wasn't that long ago." When Leah, a national of Singapore, first got to know Travis, who was 10 years her junior, she was attracted to him, but "I tried to tell myself it wouldn't work because of the age difference.I fought those affections like crazy." But as an undeniable connection formed, Leah finally made a bold request: "I told the Lord, unless I hear Travis say, 'The Lord has laid it on my heart that you are to be my wife,' I will not move forward." The night before the two gave a group presentation together, they met to pray.
