It also depends on the country, in Europe people get married much younger than they do in the States. 22-23 years old is fairly common. I'm single and almost 35, at that age I have people trying to convice me to enter the priesthood.

i understand that, and every situation is different. you are correct DTop.. but one of the hardest things is marriage and the military. It takes a very....... VERY strong woman to handle moves, new schools, deployments... etc and getting married young is tough in those situations.

My vote is enjoy life... marriage will always be there for you if the person is the right one. Don't rush into something you question already.

And for some... marriage may not even be in the cards. A lot of opinions today would say, only get married if you are planning on having children. Not sure I agree with that, but today's generation is more ME than US.

I agree, and that is sad. A marriage isn't about "me," and many people don't even realize that. They think it's cute to have a ring on their finger and dress up for a day.

I think with growing as a society and all of the wonderful things that have happened in the last 100 years or so we have sacrificed many things. I believe young marriages used to be able to hold on - in the past more so than this day and age. Now days it is to easy for many people to just get a divorce. (Divorce has it's own time and purpose, but now it's just becoming another fashion statement). I think many young marriages are not aware of what they are getting into and are not mature enough to see their vows through. I do believe there are special people who are able to see marriage as a sacred trust between themselves and God and they will weather it - and this goes for young and old marriages both.

So I agree with a few other posters, it depends on the people entering the relationship.

I agree with everyone who said after you get set in your particular career. Marriage should come after you are secure in what you do, and are ready in every way for it.

I guess my Wife and I really messed up. We were 18 and that was almost 45 years ago. But, I wouldn't advise anyone to do the same just because it worked out for us. I really do believe it is a generational thing, at least in America, so I'll go along with TI on this one.

I feel like I've done life backwards, lol. My bf and I are all settled down, but now I'm wanting to pursue a career which means me leaving, and having to sell my horse, give away our dogs and cats, etc etc etc.....it makes me really sad and makes me think that maybe pursuing a career is selfish.....?

CC ive learned in the last years you cant worry about everyone else...if you try pleasing everyone youll just end up frustrated...so follow your dreams and if your bf is worth your time he'll understand and wait if you decide to do this. and i understand about selling your animals...ive got 2 horses and a lil dog that was a stray (bc ppl cant seem to stop dropping off animals past my house) and it would kill me to have to give them up for any reason...oh and i might be getting another horse....hope this helped
