Why Getting Married In Your 30s Is All The Rage…

Whilst some people can’t wait to marry their childhood sweetheart, others approach the whole “getting married” thing with more wisdom and a more strategic approach, trying to keep a cool head around one of life’s most difficult decisions – ‘when is the right time to settle down’?

The right decision is a personal one, and one only you and your partner can decide upon.

However if you are a 20 something…and specifically a late 20 something…and your starting to panic if marriage is ever going to happen…then fear not….Getting married in your 30s is all the rage!

1. You get to try different things

All your failed relationships have lead to the one that will hopefully last a lifetime, so it’s a good thing to go out there and try out a few things.  Only after realising what you don’t want and what you don’t like can you figure out what to look for in a life partner.

2. Better career

By the time you’re in your thirties you should’ve figured out what you want from life and by then you should also be at a good point in your chosen career.  The fact that you aren’t getting married until later on means that you have had more time to focus on your career.  And you will be able to reap the benefits later on in life.

3. You know who you are

Some people marry their high-school sweetheart in their early twenties and unfortunately end up get divorced in their thirties, why? Because you have both changed!  In your ‘teens and twenties although you seem mature , those are important years to know yourself and understand better what you’re like as a person and what you want out of life, and sometimes that doesn’t happen when your part of a couple.  Married Thirty somethings have spoken about drifting apart from their partner because they never had time to grow as an individual.

4. Dirty thirties

Women (and men) reach their sexual peak in their thirties and forties, so your nuptials will coincide with some of the best sex of your life.  Who said that marriage is the tomb of sex?

5. You have more time to get things out of your system

Want to backpack solo around Latin America? Or spend your weekends learning how to skateboard?    Well, that’s what your twenties are for.  Follow your passions; spend some quality time with yourself and learn to be alone before learning to be with someone else.
