Still, this news caught my eye in a way that word of a male TV news anchor marrying a younger woman wouldn't. Indeed, it led me to bring it up to all of you in this blog. Why? We label women who date younger men "cougars" as if they are fierce, aggressive, wild animals. These couples throw us off balance. Even some women are guilty of looking at fellow women who date younger men with suspicion. Now, Couric, the first female to anchor the nightly news without a co-host, might actually marry her younger man.
I say, "Good for you, Katie Couric." She deserves love -- and all its richness and joy -- again. Does it really matter if it's with someone 17 years her junior? As long as a couple is happy with one another and the life they can make together, then no one should deny or judge them in my opinion. But not everyone agrees. What do you think? Is it fair to judge older women who marry younger men?
