new study came in that found a 4.4 year age gap, with the male being older than the female, is considered the average ideal age gap. no word on same sex couples. but 4.4 is too old big for me. i'd say 3 to 3.5 years, with me older than my lady, is ideal. this is for like marriage partner material i mean, no hit and quit material, know what i mean ladies? what's your idea age gap.
