It seems like there are more women older than their husbands than popular culture would have it. My grandmother, for years and years, wouldn't say how old she was, we think because she was a couple of years older than her husband (who died in the 1930s, so not like it was a current issue. And anyway, we knew she was born in 1885.). But by the time she was approaching 90, she realized that her age was something to be proud of, and didn't hide it any more. She lived to be 94.
