The Grounds for Saying No to Early Marriage
There are still many who hesitate when it comes to marriage even if they are now at the ideal age for it. However, there are many benefits of marrying at a young age. On the other hand, it is not for everyone. Why it is more advisable not marry if you are still young for it?
You are not ready for a lifetime commitment. Not yet! Marriage is a lifetime commitment and heavy responsibilities come along with it. It is not as simple as getting married instantly and with just few quarrels with your partner, you immediately file for divorce. This is not something you would like to experience to every relationship you go with. In the end, you grow tired of it just because you got married without thinking over it a hundred times.
You will miss out what else you should enjoy being single. There are a still lot of things that you must experience and have fun with during your single life. When you marry early, the worst part would be to feel envy with your single friends who are still have time of their lives.
You are still immature in making decisions. If even at the smallest things you make childish decisions, definitely you are not ready for marriage yet. As stated above, marriage comes with responsibilities and it must be taken with maturity from you and your partner.
You are not sure if he/she really is the right one for you. If you are still unsure with what you feel about your current partner and if you don’t see your future being with him/her, then this could be a sign that marriage is very unlikely. You may find it on your next relationship if ever.
Building a family is still not on your mind. A home spouse, kids, your lovely dog, and picket white fences may sound dreamy for you. However, this is something that you still have not come up with realism. If you are not ready to build a family, why marry?
You still rely on your parents to your almost everything. If you are still dependent to your parents, how can you stand on your own feet and be a good partner and parent yourself. When you decided to get married, you are not only expected to be prepared mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You also have to be financially stable to support another life especially if you are the husband. When you enter marriage, it is not just about you anymore. You are expected to be the breadwinner and getting this role at a young age is not a walk in the park.
