Stephen Fry, 57, and his partner, stand-up comedian Elliott Spencer, 27.The pair, who have a 30 year age difference, got married yesterday afternoon in Norfolk.
Dating someone 20 years old
She explained to FEMAIL: 'In case you haven't noticed, we feel the same as we get older as we did when we were young, on the inside at least - it's only when we look in the mirror we see the signs of ageing.
'Psychologically, having a trophy wife on your arm gives the same effect as flash cars and watches - admiration and significance, it's almost as if having this young partner quantifies how successful they are.''It is well known that men and women reach their sexual peak at a different ages (men early 20s women late 30s early 40s), so while a young toy boy may well be able to satisfy an older woman an older man may leave his younger wife feeling unfulfilled.
But younger men buck the trend, with those aged up to 30 preferring to date someone older than younger.
Between the ages of 20-29, many men indicate a preference for a partner 3-6 years older than themselves.
The website's psychologist Sam Owen believes that men aged 20-29 now looking for older women pver a younger model is largely down to the change in gender roles in modern society, with far more equality between the sexes nowadays. The couple are now married and have a one year old daughter called Carmen and recently announced that they are expecting their second child together Sam Taylor-Johnson, 47, with husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson, 24.
