Why Older Men ?

And why were they both attracted to such older men ?

I think, because, they were motherless. As young twenty-somethings, they found men their age immature, too unaware of how serious life could be. Too full of optimism about the future, too unaware of how life can come crashing down upon one’s self.

But the older men, they knew. Yet, they dismissed these young women and their concerns as insignificant simply because they were so young.

Maybe it is that in having lost their mothers, the father became more important in their own life, even if he wasn’t able to be as nurturing as their mother would have been.

Somehow, I just don’t feel that the fact that they chose older men, who would end up fathering their child but not take responsibility for it, is insignificant.
