Nowadays in our society older women tend to date younger men within our world. Society called these women "cougar" and some people remind us that our old folk always say "age is just a number". 

The definition of a cougar: The most commonly-accepted definition of a cougar is a woman 40 years of age or older who exclusively pursues very young men. The onset of the cougar years is hotly debated. Some feel that a cougar can be as young as 35, but women of this age would not be viewed as cougars unless their sexual conquests were no older than 25; the ten-year age difference seems to be an unspoken but accepted minimum between partners.

Typically, cougars prey upon men almost young enough to be their sons. Thus forty-something cougars would be attracted to men in their 20s, and fifty-something cougars would pursue men in their 30s and so on. Some cougars are less interested in a relationship than a sexual conquest, perhaps enjoying the fact that they are physically appealing to men who are considered to be in the prime of their virility.

A cougar may be married or unmarried, and some even go after their daughters' boyfriends.

Although the term 'cougar' comes from the big-game predatory cat of the same name, the cougar connection also may allude to the wearing of animal print clothing by older and more sexually aggressive women.

Is there something wrong with older women dating younger men?

You might find it as a joke but this situation is an everyday life style for someone within your country.

Cougar is an offensive term in that context.  And if men can date younger women then what could possibly be wrong with women dating younger men?

well men can have children in their old age and women can't, and that's a fact. I know men who have had children in their 70's and 80's. By the time women are 35 it's already unsafe to have children.  

It's true that's why men tend to have younger women but why does older women have younger men is that point and topic

Under that logic women over 35 should not get married at all. Not to an older man, not to a younger man.

I personally see nothing wrong with these women. Though I personally would not recommend a marriage with too big an age gap.

My point in that the young man will stay childless even if he is teeming with life. 

I understand, but that is up the man to decide. Afterall, not everyone wants to have children.

I just want to hear what people think about this situation cause many people have different views or point.

Amen  to  that!

SEE the celebrity Jlo dating younger man in his 20's. WHY? They like to be loved and younger men are more aggressive. Some women in their 40's like to date younger men because they feel younger, they want to be more appreciative, or something like their late and if they date an old man age 50's,,well all their happiness will gone.  

Why you all their happiness will gone if they date an old man age 50's? The old man at age 50's might want a younger women.
