Wow, those men really knew how to work it, huh? :-) Did anyone ever see that "novela" called "Amor Real" from not-too-long-ago? I think it took place during the time of the Independence from Spain and it shows how men in their 50's/60's are marrying women in their late teens/early 20's. I guess men have more productive or "reproductive" years to take advantage of. LOL!

I have you beat with an age difference story. My ancestor Nestor Sanchez, born abt 1827 was married the first in 1847 to my ancestor Maria Gertrudis Cortes, 2 years after her death he married again.. in 1896! That made him over 70 and she was Victoriana Tovar, widow age 34 and they had at least 1 more child that I know of born in 1900! His second marriage record lists him as 50 but we know that wasn't correct so always take those marriage records with a grain of salt until you find a second record to verify.

Also keep in mind that many second marriages were arranged to help care for the man's children from his first marriage. One family member, Eugenio Caldera, 1799 had 9 children when he married his second wife, Maria Crus Losano, age 14 in 1841 and they had 11 more children!

Just yesterday I was at the FHC looking at a film and "accidently" ran
across an entry (not the one I was looking for!) regarding one of my
ancestors.......I made a copy and then translated it into English while it
was still fresh in my mind. The mother (age 23) was registering her two
week old child and gave her husband's age as 80!!!! I could not believe it
but they had clearly shown his age in numbers (80) as well as in word
(ochenta).....I even asked the person next to me to read it and they agreed
I was correct! WOW!!!

One of my maternal great grandfathers, Feliciano Gil Pinedo de la Torre, married for the first time at the age of 21 with a woman more or less his age. The couple had several children, two of whom married two sisters. After the death of the first wife, when my great-grandfather was 49 years old, he remarried with my great-grandmother who was 15 at the time. My great-great grandmother happened to be the younger daughter of Feliciano's two daughter-in-laws...

Talk about a genealogical tree with crooked branches... My grandfather, who was the second-youngest of the second marriage childern was born when my great-grandfather was 66 years old and his younger brother was born when Feliciano was 68!

Arturo......my great grandfather was age 72 when my grandfather was
born....he was the youngest of 17 children from my greatgrandfather's two
marriages.....His second wife (my great-grandmother) was 42 when they had my
grandfather.....then yesterday I found one of his relatives (that I wrote
about earlier) who was age 80 when he fathered a child.....I give thanks
that all this "happened" because I would not be here if it hadn't! :-)
