Time to Find Yourself...

Your early to mid twenties are a time for you to discover who you really are and where you see your future taking you. Take time for you; explore different hobbies, create your own business, and make a name for yourself. This is one of the surefire reasons not to get married too young; you don't want to start a family when you still need time to grow up yourself.


More Chances to Travel...

If you love traveling and finding new places, then this may be a reason not to get married too young. Getting married doesn't mean that you won't travel, but when you buy a house, a bigger car, and start growing a family, traveling expenses get put on the back burner. Travel together as much as you can and see all there is to see before making the choice to say, 'I Do.'


Often, your early twenties are a time of exploration, growth, and self-discovery, which can sometimes be easier to navigate without the commitments that marriage brings. Think about embarking on solo trips or traveling with friends to destinations that challenge your comfort zone and expose you to new cultures. These experiences can contribute significantly to your personal development and can impact your perspective on life and relationships. Embrace the freedom to wander and let your curiosity guide you—you may just find that these adventures enrich your life in ways you never imagined.


Learn How to Depend on Yourself...

It's nice to have that feeling that someone is there for you, but you don't want to take advantage of them. Be in control of your life; a reason not to get married too young is so you can learn how to depend on yourself. In the future you won't need to call up your spouse when the sink is leaking, when you need to hang a photo on the wall, or if there is a mouse running wild through your house! Learn to be a Do It Yourself kind of woman.


Being Okay with Being Alone...

Are you someone who jumps into a relationship right after one has ended? If you hate being alone and just want someone to want you, well this is a very good reason not to get married too young. Along with learning how to depend on yourself, you need to learn how to stand on your own and be okay with being alone. A marriage isn't going to fix what's wrong inside, seek counseling if you need someone to talk to and listen.


Strong Career Woman...

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. You shouldn't put yourself or your spouse in a place of feeling guilty or feeling alone because you are working at the "office" late at night or on the weekends.


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.


The Baby Stork Paid You a Visit...

There are too many girls who don't realize that this is a reason not to get married too young. They actually think the opposite and believe that if you end up pregnant out of wedlock, then you should definitely marry your baby's daddy! Having an accidental pregnancy with someone doesn't automatically make mom and dad compatible, it means that you weren't thinking. Don't make the situation more difficult by jumping into a loveless marriage.


You Are the Caretaker Type...

Do you always look for someone to take care of or look for someone who is damaged and needs help? If you are the caretaker type who gets taken advantage of, then this is a reason not to get married too young. Don't rush into marriage because this person "needs you." Marriage should be about two people who are in love and respect each other.

What do you think, ladies, are these on your list of reasons not to get married too young? Do you have other reasons on your list?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I used to love this app but its just not for me.

I def. agree with number 7 ... I'm 21 have a 2 year old and have been with my boyfriend for over 6 years and the one thing I would ever do is rush into a marriage bc I have a baby ... So many people around me have gotten married just for having kids but that is one thing I will never agree with

Hadn't this already been an article?

I don't really agree with these reasons. I'm 22 and I got married last year. I was with my husband for 4 years before we decided to get married. I got my bachelors degree and I wanted to have a baby so we got pregnant. I'm not saying that all 21 year olds should get pregnant but that was my decision. We have traveled and I wouldn't change a thing bc I'm with my soul mate. I think it's everyone's decision with when to get married. Just because you're married it doesn't mean that you're tied down it just means you found your "one". I don't feel like I missed out by getting married young. I've been through a lot and I'm more than happy with my decisions. Ladies do what you feel in your heart and not what others say or think. It's your life.

In my personal opinion I think some of these are excuses. You can do almost everything listed with a spouse. If you know you've found you're soulmate and you're mature enough to handle a serious relationship then go for it! If you're unsure of yourself then duh don't get married..anyone at any age.

Me and my boyfriend have been together for a little over a year now we're not married but we live together and I have a three year old son from my first serious relationship. I'm 21 and he's 23. Although we're not married living together is still a big commitment but I do feel like we've had to go through a lot of maturing before we met each other and maybe things will work out for us

Couldn't agree anymore! They don't realize it's hard work! especially all these babies having babies thinking their Mature and not even finish with HS lol.

I can see the advantages of not getting married too young. But I don't care how do-it-yourself independent woman I am, if there is a mouse running thru my house I will burn that sh*t to the ground and run away screaming xx

You can't tell the future. You just have to take each day as one. Regardless if your 20 or 26 if you find that person who makes you happy but still challenges you you have to be willing work through the good days and the bad days. You don't have to be single to "find yourself" when you get married you turn into a family and become one you change your mold as a person and you start a new life full if endless possibilities.
