If you are still in your 20’s, you probably shouldn’t be thinking about getting married yet. Marrying young like the older generations used to may sound like a good idea but it truly isn’t practical for this generation. Even though the 20’s can be the best time for some, the majority of 20-something year olds just aren’t ready for this huge commitment. Here are some of the main reasons why you should wait till you are at least 30 years old to get married.
You don’t know yourself well
When you are in your 20’s you still don’t know yourself very well. You still need a few more years to understand yourself before you can commit to be with someone else for the rest of your life. Most people start understanding themselves as they get close to 30 years and that is why you should wait till then. When you get married to someone when you fully understand yourself, the chances of you having a much happier marriage are greater.
You are still exploring life
When in your 20’s, you are still exploring what life has to offer. This is the age where you want to enjoy life fully, partying if you want to, trying and failing in different things before you find what truly inspires you. You do not want to spend your time stressing about marriage and raising a family at this crucial stage of life .
You are not financially stable
There are a few people who are financially stable before they are 30 years old but majority of them are not. Being financially stable is not just about earning a lot of money, it is also about properly managing what you earn. You need to be good at managing your money because not knowing how to do this can cause rifts in your marriage.
You limit your progress
Every one of us has his/her dreams and ambitions. You want to achieve your goals at a certain time and getting married might slow you down. Even though some people may say that it is much better to achieve your goals with the help of your partner, it is also a good idea to achieve some of these things on your own.
Chance to have the best wedding
With most of your friends getting married in their 20’s, you will see enough mistakes and learn from them. This means that you have the perfect opportunity to have the best wedding that will leave all your guests talking about it for months and years to come.
