Looking for One to Look Up To

From your experience, does this sound right?

“Few women will admit the need to look up to their husbands, but few are happy if they cannot. Though Hollywood and women’s magazines would have us believe otherwise, women rarely date significantly younger men. Perhaps they would if they could–if younger men found them attractive–but I doubt it. Most women still look for men to take care of them” (Jennifer Ferrara, “Austen’s Powers” in Touchstone [March 2006], 20).
