Just Ask Sooz



Dear Sooz:

I’d like to voice my opinion in your column if it’s OK? You see, I am married to a man who is 18 years my junior. I know, everyone calls me a cougar, but I must tell you, the marriage has worked fine now for over 15 years.

I am 56 and he is 38. We met doing laundry one day when he was only 23, I was 41 at the time. When people see us holding hands or kissing, they call us sick. Usually, they describe me as robbing the cradle, but I am here to tell you that we are both very much in love.

I have always liked older men, and I must say, I consider myself a very young looking 56. Even though the’re others out there who criticize us, we are both glad we decided to get married and become lifelong partners.

I just wanted those out there who would consider me someone taking advantage of a younger man wrong. Thank you for letting me air my voice in your forum.

P.S. The sex is amazing.

    I have never understood this type of person, the sort who feels the need to make sure that everyone knows they don’t care what you think… because of how desperately they care what you think.

    To each his own, I suppose. What happens in another twenty years when she really begins to look old? No one can stay young-looking forever unless they off themselves when they start to fade, like Marilyn Monroe! (I wouldn’t recommend that, however.)

      If her looks are what matter after 15-35 years…. You don’t make 15 years based on physical attraction alone. No the ugly sad thing about that is that she will probably die 10 years or more before him & he’ll probably find himself alone with no children at 70.

        That really would be sad. Maybe they can adopt.
