Swedish Men Marry Younger Foreigners?

A survey of Swedish marriages with foreign-born spouses confirms the general belief that older Swedish men marry much younger women mostly from Southeast Asia but also Africa and Eastern Europe.

Swedish women are more likely to choose a partner from the Nordic zone or Western Europe - and someone abut their own age.

The researchers ay more studies have to be carried out to see if this is partly due to holiday destinations where Swedish men searching for the sun run into younger brides-to-be or employment patterns where Swedish women are more likely to look for work in the Nordic region or closer European countries.
