An AARP magazine survey showed 34 percent of women over 40 date younger men. Cougaring is no passing fancy; it’s a phenomenon that’s here to stay. Many older women reported liking younger men for obvious reasons: more energy, more enthusiasm, and best of all less baggage. Whereas a man in his 40s has probably been married (and possibly divorced) at least once, men in their 20s and 30s have a fresher, less jaded perspective on life. But what the hell do younger men want with older women, then?

Well, frankly, cougars tend to have the same mindset as young men. Women in their 40s and 50s are often over the marriage and kids thing. They don’t want someone to provide for their needs—they can do that themselves. Rather than having to navigate a Byzantine maze of emotional needs, with a cougar you can get right down to hanging out, having fun together and, of course, screwing. Your very own Mrs. Robinson might not want you for anything serious, but who cares? As a man, you’re getting what you want—namely, no strings attached sex.

The good: when you’re dating an older woman, she knows what she wants and generally isn’t shy about going after it. While not in the shape she was 10 years ago, no matter how good the personal trainer, she does know her way around the boudoir more than most chicks your age. Further, she likely has a successful career and steady income. A cougar will almost never look to you for support, financial or otherwise.

In the world of entertainment (and in general) it is no longer a taboo issue for older men to date and marry much younger women. This list of famous men who married much younger women is a testament to how mainstream it has become to act as though age is just a number. There is no such thing as ageism in love.

We salute these men and women for looking past social norms and decide for themselves who they want to be with. We can only hope that the women don’t have ulterior motives and that the men want more than arm candy at the end of the day. Some of these couples have been married for longer than you’ve been alive, and in doing so, are restoring our faith in love.

Nothing in Hollywood is done the traditional way, so why make this any different? This list of men who married much younger women can be seen as either a way to remain younger for longer, or finding love in the most random places.

They call them "MILFs" and "Cougars". many men do fantaize about and pursue sex with older women.
