There are plenty of men with much younger women, as sexism in our society dictates that is ok, vs. women with younger men is not as ok.

I don't think it's sexism. I think it's our society's preoccupation with procreation. An older man with a younger woman can produce a baby, not vice versa.

Well you're entitled to your opinion, but I completely disagree. Procreation might be one reason, but most often, the much older man does not want the young woman for that reason. It's in our history of films, media of all sorts, and society's perception of the ideal woman. That's the preoccupation. As opposed to an older woman who is not seen as physically desirable. It's called a double standard, and it still exists.

Whether or not a couple with a huge distance in age is a good idea is besides the point. There are rational reasons why one might not choose someone too far out of your age range. Just thinking ahead 20-30 years down the road can influence many people's decisions about that. But the difference in how the older woman with younger man are looked at by society still is not the same as the other way around.
