Though there are some people who got married in their 20s and have successful marriages, most of the people who get married at this age end up being disappointed as a result of rushing an important decision.
Here are some of the reasons why it is not a good idea to get married in your 20s:
- You do not really understand what marriage is all about: Marriage is not all about love. There are times when you will hurl insults at each other and considering that you already introduced your partner to your family it will not be easy to get out of the relationship. You may be shocked to discover that what you thought of the person when you first met is not what he or she actually is.
- You are either in school or your career is just budding: if you are a lady in your 20s, quitting school or your job so that you can become a housewife simply because your husband-to-be says so is the worst idea. Though your husband may be kind enough to supply all you and your children want, you will have lost your independence as a woman.
- You will not be able to enjoy your youth: Immediately you get married, you will be tasked with too many responsibilities that will take up much of your time. You will not be able to have fun like the other people of your age and this may make you age faster than them.
If you are in your 20s and you feel that you have met the right person for you, you should not rush to do so. Weigh the pros and the cons of your decision so that you do not end up ruining the rest of your life by making the mistake of either marrying at the wrong time or getting your priorities wrong.
