Come with me as I make my opinion known to you in this article.

Is there any standard to follow in regard to age differences among couples?
Does age really change anything or affects anything?

Yes, you are right by saying God created the man first and He made him the head of the family.
But may I ask you to tell me the age difference between Adam and Eve.
