The perfect age gap for partners is revealed in a recent study.  Find out how you and your significant other match up here…

The perfect age gap for partners is four  years and four months but only when the man is older, a survey has  found.  A study of 2,000 adults showed that just one  per cent of women believed the ‘ideal relationship’ was with a younger  man. Men were also reluctant to be a toyboy, with  just two per cent saying they would rather be with an older woman. The majority of respondents said an age gap  was preferable, however. Forty per cent said three to four years was  the ideal age gap, while thirty per cent said five to six years.

Celebrity couples with a four-year age gap  include actress Gwyneth Paltrow, 40 and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 36, who  have been married for nine years and have two children. Paltrow defied  convention by choosing a younger man.


The Queen, 86, meanwhile, married Prince  Philip, 91, five years her senior, as did model Kate Moss, 39, when she wed  musician Jamie Hince, 44. The survey, by, found that many  women would be happier with a larger age gap, with one in three saying they  would date a man seven years older.

Despite this, more than a third said they assumed when they saw a women with a much older men that he ‘very rich’, while one five assumed ‘it wouldn’t last’. A quarter said that they viewed women with  older men as ‘gold-diggers’. Those in favor of an age gap said the main  benefit was that ‘you can learn from the different perspective of the other  partner’, while four in ten said ‘the youthfulness of the younger partner rubs  off on the older partner’.


The survey found that people’s favourite ‘age-gap’ celebrity couple was actor Michael Douglas and actress Catherine  Zeta-Jones, who is 25 years younger.

Hollywood actor Harrison Ford and actress  Calista Flockhart, who is 22 year his junior, and Australian actress Deborah Lee  Furness and X-men actor Hugh Jackman, who is 13 years younger, also featured on  the list.


Counselor and relationship expert Julia Cole  said:

‘Age gap relationships are becoming more and more common because of the  greater acceptance of the diversity of couples and families. Couples can make loving relationships across  ages and genders, but age gap relationships can bring with them issues that are  not often considered when the couple first start seeing each other.

‘If the age gap is fairly wide – more than  ten years – and the relationship grows into a commitment, it is important to  talk about attitudes to money, expectations of family life and what parents,  siblings and friends will think about an older partner in their life as well as  yours.’
