It may predate O'Rell, as he presents it not as his own invention but as a very good piece of advice that he "heard the other day. Never marry a woman richer than you, or one taller than you, or one older than you.

Marry her at an age that will always enable you to play with her all the different characteristic parts of a husband, a chum, a lover, an adviser, a protector, and just a tiny suspicion of a father.
Discussed a lot when Colonel Brandon falls in love with Marianne Dashwood.
Chris Pratt: Andy Dwyer
He is 35 and she is 17, and she thinks that he's old enough to be her father. Her sister Elinor thinks that it is a significant gap, but says a woman of 27 and a man of 35 might be quite happy together. Near the end of the novel, Colonel is still very much in love with her, and the narrator says he had "little to do but to calculate the disproportion between thirty-six and seventeen". But thirty-five has nothing to do with matrimony. Perhaps thirty-five and seventeen had better not have any thing to do with matrimony together.
But if there should by any chance happen to be a woman who is single at seven and twenty, I should not think Colonel Brandon's being thirty-five any objection to his marrying HER. Tom quotes the half-your-age-plus-seven rule, which in Andy's case would be 21 and a half, causing Andy some consternation when he realizes this technically puts the year-old April in the "too young" range.
