You may have a lot of friends that have already tied the knot, and if you don’t have a serious girlfriend or boyfriend, then you’ve likely been asked far too many times by now when you’re going to follow in their footsteps. Marriage is not something that everyone is crazy about, though, and while some people decide to get married in their early 20s, others do it in their 30s or even when they’re much older. At the end of the day, it’s all up to you and your feelings, but if you want to get an idea of whether you’re going to get married when you’re younger or older, the following signs may indicate that it’s the latter.
1. You Barely Know Yourself
Whether people do really change with time is open to debate. But the fact is that when you’re in your early 20s, you don’t know yourself well enough to commit to a relationship that’s going to last the rest of your life. So if people keep saying that you need to grow up and become more mature emotionally, then it’s a good sign you are still learning about yourself and should keep it up. It’s only when you truly know who you are and what you want from life that you’ll be able to find and marry the right person and share a wonderful life together.
2. You’re Not Financially Stable
Money makes the world go round, and no matter how much you would say you’re in love with someone, at the end of the day money is still a very important aspect in any relationship. Yes, you may act confident and feel ready to go to the ends of the earth for your significant other just to see her happy, but when life brings financial hardship, it can be a nasty slap. If you find yourself without the means to get the basic things you need, it’s clear that you’re not ready to financially support yourself and your future family.
