Dating younger girl wrong
But any woman in Africa who has found herself in this stiuation is not with the man because she loves him, but just because she loves what he has Balaam Bahumure, Kampala, Uganda: In business, where does age come into it? A lot of old men have been left crying once their business empires collapsed and these young ladies vanished like mist into thin air Moses Karuhanga, Entebbe, Uganda: It is not wrong at all for young women to date older men. Young men are jumpy and have more than one partner.The older men are more caring, financially stable and psychologically mature.
Young men reach their maximum sexual ability in their early 20s, at a time when they are frustrated by their lack of finances and willing females.There should be a caveat on those below the legal age of consent or marriage Lawrence Atieno, Nairobi, Kenya: It is not immoral for young girls to date older men.What is the age gap - ten years, fifteen years or twenty years?In a typical African setting it is mostly to do with the wealth of the man. Age does not matter in the transactions Abubakar Muhammad; Bauchi, Nigeria: It is absolutely wrong for any young girl to date an old man, despite the situation she finds herself in.Poverty and poor education is the main cause of these sickening relationships Sani Usman, Kaduna, Nigeria: As a Muslim there is nothing wrong with young girls getting married to older men and vice versa Mahmud Abubakar, Jimeta, Nigeria: In my opinion it is good for a young woman to date older men. Let her find another option to solve the problem Malilwe Hamulondo, Mongu, Zambia: It is not immoral for young girls to date much older men, but nowadays most young ladies are after money and not real love.It is only weak and controlling men who date women who are considerably younger than them Ngwani Felix Bawe, Kumbo, Cameroon: Love knows no limits and neither does age affect it!
It suffices only for the older man and young woman to have found love, and they shall together enjoy the relationship like any other couple.
Of course a young woman (as I was when we met) can date and grow old with an older man, I am living proof, but lets not kid ourselves that 'sugar daddies' are anything other than a predatory menace Chris Nnadi, Nsukka, Nigeria: The morality or otherwise of the older man dating young girls lies in the motive behind the said action.
If it is for sex only, it should be seen as immoral, but if it is for marriage, then there is nothing wrong with that.
It is a deceptive relationship and whoever gets into it, whether young or old , is in the wrong Geoffrey Bedan Arinaitwe, Kabale, Uganda: It is quite outrageous for young girls in the African tradition to even propose a love affair to someone their own age!
Then, how permissible will it be for such a young girl to date an old man?
Back home in Cameroon, young girls only use the older men for financial security and as for the men; to savour good sex from their young partners!
