Is there any restriction in Hinduism that female partner must be younger than the corresponding male partner for marriage? If it is there, why?
According to Hindu texts, is there any restriction on the maximum and minimum age gap between the marrying couple?
- Some people say that women have more maturity than men at a particular age. Hence to balance them a difference of 4-5 years is recommended. My mother had told me that men's life expectancy is less than woman and they start getting health problems earlier than women. So in order to match their these periods, it is done so, so that both can tackle all problems together.
- There is no such rule for age gap. In medival times, adult men married child girls. (That's wrong of course). But the age gap must not be much, +ve or -ve
