EarnTheNecklace.com, a revealing and engaging web site containing articles written by women who exchange their stories and confessions about being in a relationship with much older men, has released a statement responding to recent comments made by Xerox CEO Ursula Burns, who said that, in order to be successful, women should marry a man 20 years older.
Speaking at a conference aimed at helping women succeed in the workplace, 54-year-old Burns said that she tells young women who ask her for advice that one of the keys to her success was marrying a great man 20 years her senior, because “he had already gone through this ‘growing up’ stuff.” According to the CEO, marrying an older man allowed her to leave her young children at home with her retired husband and focus on her career.

“While Burns’ rise to the top at Xerox had more to do with her ambitious personality and brilliant mind than anything, it’s important to remember that who you choose as your life partner can significantly impact your career and future,” says Bianca-Marie Coventry, EarnTheNecklace.com’s content manager. “Having a mature, older partner who has experienced life and is willing to split responsibilities can be a vital element in a successful business and relationship.”
“We can’t have a perfect work/life balance every day, or even every month,” Coventry adds. “It’s about being flexible and having balance over longer periods of time. And being in a relationship with an emotionally secure older man who understands these dynamics certainly helps.”
