Is There a Right Age to Get Married?

Category: Marriage

Homer and Marge - Is there a right age to get married?
As what our parents and grandparents used to say, "You should get married at the right age." But when is the right age to get hitched? Long ago, women used to get married when they reach the age of 17 or 18, and when you’re in the middle twenties, people already consider you spinster*. Yeah, a lot of spinsters back then and a lot of teenager moms. But today, getting pregnant as a teen is a really big issue for the society. 

In our modern world today, more and more women are properly educated and the myth about spinsters at the age of twenties is no longer seen as the late age for marriage. Women today would rather finish college, get a job and earn money before getting married.

The Right Time to Get Married

Lisa's Wedding - Is there a right age to get married?
So, is there a right age to get married, then and now? The answer there is a clear NONE. The reason why women then get married when they're still a teen is because of our traditions, not to mention, the treatment and regard for women back then is very little compared to the treatment and respect for men.

These days, a modern woman thinks and decides for herself at her own free will, free from restrains from her parents or guardians, and even from the elders in the clan. Thinking and deciding still includes respect for her elders and parents or guardians, but a modern woman has the power to run her life and choose who to marry and when to get married.

Getting Hitched?

Homer and Marge Wedding Cake TopperIf you’re planning to get married this year or in the near future, make sure you’re physically and mentally prepared for it. It doesn’t matter if you’re still in your early twenties, what’s important is that you understand the path you’re taking, and make sure you finish college. Because in our world today, in order to be successful in your career is either you get a degree or a brilliant brain that even three college graduate Joes can’t match.

It’s you’re decision to go traditional (marriage before getting pregnant or marriage at a very early age), follow the trend, or follow your guts. But remember, these days, a woman's chances of having children decreases the older she gets.

So again, is there a right age to get married? Well, it depends on the person being asked. But if you ask me, I’d gladly answer you with, “none,” as long as you understand the path you’re taking and that you’re physically and mentally prepared for what’s heading your way.

* Spinster: An unmarried adult female.
