A Home For Rare Gems

Friday Friyay!!

I was with my aunt earlier this week and we spoke about getting married and the challenges that come with getting married late or early. She got married in her very late twenties and she spoke about the pressure she was put under by family and friends.
Out of the blues she asked if at my age, I was ready to get married. I hadn’t consciously thought about it before because I always targeted my marriage to be in the next four or five years which to me is a very long time๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š.
So I’m like “eeerrmmm, I don’t think so”

And she asks why.
I stated the age factor and that I wasn’t financially and career wise stable yet. She countered age wasn’t exactly an issue (I’m in my very early twenties btw ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—) and that a person could always balance a home and a career. She capitalised on the age factor, and adviced age was just a number and maturity was the main deal. I feel sometimes maturity is birthed from experiences aquired over time which I believe comes with a certain age.
So what do you guys think?
Is age a factor? If I got married now, would yall raise a brow?
What’s your idea of the ideal marriage age for both genders?

  1. Well, maturity like u said is an important factor and its a function of exposure and not necessarily age,there are a lot of guys and ladies in their mid twenties that are far more mature than those in their thirties, the moment a guy or lady is matured in the area of finances, spirituality, mentality, he or she is ripe for marriage ooooo.
    Achieving some degree of financial and career stability is also important before marriage but it shouldn’t be the foremost,maturity,love and trust should be.

  2. Sheโ€™s right. Itโ€™s about maturity. To me, this includes spiritual and emotional maturity. And of course, when you find someone who aligns with purpose and you can grow with. Knowing you, Iโ€™m pretty sure youโ€™d want to have all these grounded already before marriage so should you give me an IV today, youโ€™ll surely see me grooving at your wedding ๐Ÿ˜.

    1. Awwwwwwww๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. You’re a 100% correct.. All those and more have to be in place before the talk of marriage. Thanks so much B.
      Cheers to owambe’s to come!๐Ÿท๐Ÿท

  3. Age a times could in a subtle manner tell on one’s maturity. Nevertheless like you rightly said, maturity stems from the level at which one is exposed and how “unnaive” and street wise such a person is.
