Perhaps it has something to do with women ceasing to be considered sexual the minute their last egg drops.
Which is pretty ironic, given that older women seem to have a certain new currency in the online dating world. W hen I joined a normal dating site a few years ago, I was startled by the amount of attention I got. My inbox was suddenly awash with handsome young men who actively wanted to meet older women like me. And I loved it. And outside the tired cliches trotted out by Bolsanaro and the like, you only have to look around to see that age-gap relationships are becoming the new normal.
Increasingly, middle-aged women are choosing to date men much younger than they are — Kate Moss is currently going out Nikolai Von Bismark, some 13 years younger than her, and Sam Taylor-Johnson seems to have made quite the success out of her marriage to British actor, Aaron, who was just 18 when she met him in her early 40s.
Modern older women are financially and emotionally secure. Today, we look after ourselves more than we ever and we have high expectations for life to continue to be stimulating and exciting well into our 50s and 60s. So, why limit our relationships to those who are the same age as us? Open Preview See a Problem? Details if other :. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page.
And it is, if marriage depends on a constant stream of romantic emotion, or even on copious amounts of time or money. Thank the Lord, none of those are necessary.

Sort order. Jan 07, Brooke Fradd rated it did not like it. The author states in the early pages of the book that each of the vignettes are tru The book likes to compare itself to The Love Dare — based on the Movie Fireproof. The author states in the early pages of the book that each of the vignettes are true, however they lack an air of authenticity. Some of the situations praised are disturbing, others are downright dangerous! She respected him, allowed her mother-in-law to babysit, and the child ended up in the hospital requiring stitches because she was allowed access to a knife.
Another was the story of a husband who constantly forgot to do his chores. Allowing your heat to get cut off and one of the children was an infant is God approved family building behavior? I hated this book. I only finished it because I felt as if doing otherwise would taint my ability to properly review it.
Bottom line: Check it out from the library IF you want the urge to hurl a book across the room. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. Jan 27, Renee Hood rated it it was ok. I did not find this book to be well written or helpful. There were some good points through the 40 dares, but many had little to do with respect. It's like the author ran out of material for a full 40 days of dares and just squeezed some other "good Christian principles" in to fill space.

Some of the stories are silly and seem completely made up instead of accounts of real couples. Skip this one. Sep 22, Stephanie M.
This book has been amazing in helping me grow my relationship with God and become a more godly wife. I would definitely recommend this book to any woman who is married or even engaged. I love that the focus is getting your relationship with God right first. There is a new edition coming out on December 10, I can't wait to start a group and go through the book again!
Nov 28, Genna Evelyn rated it liked it. I guess what I was hoping was that the book would give an idea of something different I could do each day that would be a blessing to my husband for that day and would, in turn, help us to develop a natural habit of respect between us as a result. What the book actually does is give a different respect-related principle I preface these comments with the disclaimer that I DON'T currently have a husband What the book actually does is give a different respect-related principle to keep in mind for each day which begins to be a little on the overload side after a few days with some specific suggestions here and there.
I kinda get the feeling that Nina only used that format to sell books because its popular right now — and I can understand that since the only reason I picked up this book was because I was hoping for a practical guide to 40 specific days of different specific ways to show respect to my husband. The Respect Dare isn't perfect in it's direction or message but I found it to be very helpful and filled with more good advice and observations than not. Each Dare chapter offers the author's insight, a short story, questions, and a personal Dare for you the reader to complete.
Each Dare is loaded with biblical reference which I love that gives credence to why the author is suggesting us wives to respond to our husbands in this way. I found the biblical reference really helpful. I would take The Respect Dare isn't perfect in it's direction or message but I found it to be very helpful and filled with more good advice and observations than not.
I would take the reading an extra step and go into my bible to investigate deeper into that reference. It really is fascinating to read how some things just remain relevant no matter what times we live in. I feel the need to explain a little about myself. I started this book because my marriage can be tricky at times. My husband is a great, hardworking man that isn't big on talking about or being demonstrative in his feelings.
The Respect Dare: 40 Days to a Deeper Connection with God and Your Husband
I on the other hand am very much into talking about and showing my feelings which has always left me feeling unfulfilled in my marriage. I just didn't feel loved and often questioned whether he really loved me or not because he didn't "show" it. This book helped me so much. One of the biggest things this book helped me to realize was that my husband shows his love in so many ways, just not necessarily in the ways I expect him to. The cool thing is the author doesn't just write that out. Through the Dares it revealed itself which I think is so much better.
I'm really comfortable with my husband being the head of our household, but there were a couple parts that I just couldn't allow to happen. The author illustrates a story as to how she is not comfortable with her mother in law watching her little one because she is showing signs of being forgetful or less than engaged. The husband says it'll be fine and the story pretty much says that even though in the end their child got hurt because he got a hold of a knife since the grandma didn't watch him closely enough that the wife was right by deferring to her husband even though she had true fear of their child being harmed.
This I couldn't do. If I truly saw warning signs that my child would not be properly cared for I couldn't just drop my kid off and cross my fingers because my husband refused to see his mom's declining mental status. I know God loves our children even more than we do, but we bear responsibility for our children and that does not mean putting them in a potentially dangerous situation.

I mean I trust God when it comes to my children without reserve but I wouldn't just let my kids play in traffic because I know God loves them and has them. Plus when it comes to our parents it can be hard to admit they are getting old or slipping.
