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 time😊😊.
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 🤗🤗🤗) 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?
