Dear Mona, What is the average age difference among couples?
My partner and I are 28 years apart, so I’m sure we’re an outlier, but by how much?
And is it different between heterosexual and homosexual couples (we fall into the latter)?
Thanks, Seth, 32, Dallas Dear Seth, The average age difference (for a heterosexual couple) is 2.3 years, with the man older than the woman.
In 64 percent of heterosexual couples, the man is older.
In 23 percent, the woman is older, and in the remaining 13 percent, the partners are less than 12 months apart in age.
This data comes from the 2014 Current Population Survey (CPS) and is based on information provided by 31,075 male-female couples.
Those surveyed couples are supposed to represent the estimated 70 million heterosexual couples who live together in the U. It doesn’t matter whether they’re married or unmarried, parents or childless — all couples are counted in the CPS, unless they’re gay.
So, I’m sorry, Seth, but these numbers just don’t properly represent you.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
