He Is Blue Collar and Younger Than You – So What?
I figured I would just kill one bird with two stones. Now I have been searching the bible and looking at the laws to see if it states anywhere that a woman MUST marry an adult who is older than her and wears a suit to work. Why then is this an important thing for many women? Why is it that many women would rather marry someone they do not love than marry someone who is younger or blue collar?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying every woman is to go seeking out men who are younger or blue collared. I am simply saying if this is the person who makes you happy, then embrace it. Do not allow friends or family members to dictate who you spend your life with. As long as this person is an adult and both parties are comfortable then who are we to interfere?
If you are a woman who is drawn to a blue collar man, a younger man, or both then there are a few questions you must honestly ask and answer. Please see my other 2 articles around the subject. Waiting for Mr. Right and the Hypocrisy Around May-December Relationships.
- Do you love him?
- Is he someone you would consider spending the rest of your life with?
- Does he make you happy?
- Is he a good person?
- Are you very comfortable with this situation?
If you answered YES then do your thing without batting an eyelid. Age does not equal maturity. I know many 50 year old boys and just as many 25 year old men. Some of the nicest guys I have met are not sporting suits to work.
Money or the appearance of money should never be the main reason any woman is drawn to a man. Even if the man is okay in that department, what happens if he loses that money? Does this mean the “love” end?
I am not saying the opinions of our friends and relatives do not matter but the final decision must rest with you and God. It should never be that you are walking away because of what friends or family have to say about the matter. If you are walking away, it must be that you believe this is not a good fit for you.
The bottom line is for this kind of relationship to work both parties MUST be very comfortable with this. If one person is not, then there is going to be a problem and it might not be a good idea for obvious reasons. If anything about this bothers you then think long and hard before going there.
