I always say it should be in your late 20s like 28 or 29
Better yet 30
after 30... in this day and age you better enjoy your life, before worrying about 2
You shouldn't just get married because you reach a certain age, but because of true love and shit.
I can understand that as you get older you have a harder time finding love and chase after comfortably, but you probably wouldn't be in that situation in the first place if you had tried to love seriously.
You're never to old to get married
I guess around 35 ? When children are here
Never yikes ...
Asian culture be like: "Get married at 25 and no later than 30 bc that's the expiration date ladies. No man wants an old lady."
Old generation wants everyone married by 20 with two kids by 22, lol.
it still happens nowadays too.
Yeah, no one gets a pass with older generations. Women get called leftovers whereas everyone starts to question the sexuality of the men.
Don't listen to cultural traditions and pressure from society to get married at a certain age. They just want you to conform to their expectations for your life.
Marriage should happen when you love someone whom you cannot live without and they feel the same way about you.
I think older Asians just want the younger generation to get having children out of the way. They’re easier to take care of when you’re younger and have the energy rather than later when you’re older.
Also, it gives them grandchildren and they almost always volunteer to take care of them. It gives them something to do so they feel useful and they love to brag about their grandkids.
However, a major reason people are remaining single now, compared to the past, is money. Rent, schooling, etc., are more expensive and most people cannot afford to get married and move out. So many people in their late 20s and early 30s are living with their parents. Many people are still paying off their student debts and wages are still pretty low in most fields.
Plus, with the competitive job market, many university graduates cannot find work in their related field for years. That's why people prefer to remain single and get some experience before settling down in marriage. Nowadays, it's taking a lot longer to progress than baby boomers for example.
Here's a funny meme about boomers:
I understand. I guess I was trying to point out the difference of cultures. Most Asians live with their parents until they’re married anyway. Some have their parents live with them even after marriage.
But I do agree that the lack of financial stability does affect people’s decision on marriage and family. There’s a cornucopia of expenses most people don’t think about before starting a family. Even with buying a house, there’s mortgage, insurance, property tax, monthly bills. It is definitely daunting especially if one is still paying off student loans.
This is also why older Asian generations keep pushing the younger generation to study healthcare related fields. Jobs are always in demand and depending on what you pursue, salary will be sufficient.
Lmao so true
Sad thing that some girls and because they fear that people will start talking about them and how none wants to marry them end up marrying to anyone and it's like anyone and that creates alot of problems for them in the future and the marriage could be a huge failure
