In your forties, you might be more settled in your job, have some money saved for retirement, own a house and have children who are adults themselves. But it does present some challenges that a couple that is the same age may not experience.
A woman in her twenties, even if she is mature for her age, is not going to have had all the same life experiences as someone in her forties. How many years separate you and the age each of you are can be a factor.
For example, many women attend college in their early 20s to early 30s.
You might spend your twenties hanging out a lot with your friends, partying and jumping from job to job.
Other times you're naturally attracted to women older or younger than yourself.

Be sure your social circle includes people of varying ages.
And make sure to socialize as a couple with each other's friends so they can get to know you as a couple. Do you share the same interests, hobbies, spiritual beliefs and values?
