From what I understand, it wasn’t very uncommon for older folks of that era (say post Civil War) to marry young wives. That “tradition” if you can call it that, could have carried on in the early 1900’s, making it unusual by todays standards, but not when you consider that Tyler had his children very late in life making the generation gap not so severe.
