I met my husband when I was in my mid forties, when asked if I was being fussy I used to reply that I would settle for 'own teeth and hair.'. It was pointed out to me by a 'follicly challenged' male friend that this meant I could be ruling out very nice bald men!
I am happy to say that my new husband does have his own hair- but his teeth are 'crowned'. You cant have everything!
