I think this is true. I wonder if there’s an evolutionary reason why this happens. Did our ancestors tend to marry later? Have more kids over a longer period of time? Need to be able to run long distances at a later age?
By the way, perspectives change when you’re older. I was talking to a young guy last year about some celebrity, and he said, “Attractive? Yeah, I’d find her attractive, but she’s like 40 or something.”
I said, “I’m almost there.”
He said, “Oops.”
