Actually around 65% of women who marry in the US don’t marry until 26+ according to an article I read over the summer. I think it’s just that almost all of my female friends (usually dating a little older) are getting married earlier than 21 at moment, and it seems to have warped my mind into thinking it’s normal.
I don’t hate on those who marry early but I just don’t understand why. I don’t even know where I’ll be after college. I don’t even know if I wanna still be in Texas.
And why rush? I mean obviously you don’t want to wait 6 or 7 years, but I’d rather be engaged for a while and save up money for the wedding I’ve always dreamed of, and not worry about living paycheck to paycheck. I want to be financially, mentally, educationally, and career stable, even if that means I end up engaged for four years before the big wedding.
This is just my opinion of course, and if there are alternative circumstances I understand. I guess I just don’t want to rush what will eventually come.
