For years, maybe centuries the older man - younger woman has been an accepted couple. Why has it taken so long for women to achieve this same status? The name is not the best description, as it gives the appearance that the woman is on the prowl. More times than not that is not the case. This ype of relationship fills a need that she can enjoy but not be tied down by. Women today are more empowered; we are more in tune with our bodies our minds, our goals.
