If you want to start your own business, are going to school to become a doctor, a lawyer, or something else that is going to take up a lot of your time, then you may not want to get married too young.

6. You Enjoy Ladies' Night...

This isn't to say that married women don't enjoy ladies' night, but sometimes young men get a little too jealous. So if you aren't into that whole, "You can't go out with your friends" jealous rage, this would probably be a reason not to get married too young.

Don't make the situation more difficult by jumping into a loveless marriage.

Do you always look for someone to take care of or look for someone who is damaged and needs help?
