As I sat on my chair this afternoon I began to think about marriage....I couldn't give an answers to some questions that jept roaminating my mindπŸ€”.

At what age is it right to get married?

Is the age consideration the same for both genders?

What are the risks that could affect those getting married outside the appropriate age brackets?

Why do we have an increasing number of the unmarried person in the society?

What are the possible reasons for so many unmarried people? and alot moreπŸ€”πŸ€”

In our society, family seems to be the most important part of anyone's life achievement, followed by a job. Or vocation through which one can gain a means of livelihood and finally, a roof over one's head. Men ought to be hardworking and earn enough to cater for the basic needs like food, shelter and clothings of the family members.

The society expects them to provide a permanent residence for members of their families, depending on their medium term goals. Apart from job, the most germane of all these achievements is marriage, Once an individual has reached a marriageable age.

No matter your achievements in life, whether the level of education, career productivity, the quality and quantity of properties gathered, as well as the type of house you live in, the highest point of evaluating one's success is your spouse, your children and your relationship with the extended family.

There are too many marriageable unmarried men and women in our society today, with their number increasing daily. The reai for this differs from person to person as well as from gender. It is unacceptable in Africa for a woman to approach a man for marital union. Only men can ask for a young lady's hand in marriage, there by making it more difficult for the unmarried women to wait until when a young man shows interest in them.

Can't a lady propose too?πŸ€”πŸ€”

Even our tribal and religious sentiments have complicated the issue by creating a form of unwarranted segregation among us. I feel that some of our religious organization have not helped matters in this regard. Some of them allude the current trend of marital disparity to spiritual problems.

Please at what age should we now get married? Don't wait till you are old , do the needful now...

It might sound clichΓ©, but if it feels right, it probably is. "You can tell you're in love when it feels right,". "It's when you feel comfortable and can both be vulnerable with each other, and don't take advantage of each other's vulnerability. "You can accept each other's shortcomings and still love them. Listen to your feelings, and similarly, if you feel worried about the relationship, there's probably a reason why."

In marriage age is not the gauge, there was no an age standard entering into a married life. It depends on ones maturity about marriage. The maturity of a man varies, others at young age matured already and there are those who are old enough but still irresponsible even they reach the age of retirement. The foremost is maturity and and capability to handle any situations that comes into a marriage. For marriage is not like a food when swallowed hot it has to be spit out. As christian we believe what is written in the bible: For what God has bind together let no man put asunder. Married life is not a play or short story that end happily ever after. It is for real, forever with happiness and sadness, sometimes good and bad, richer and poorer, and healthy then got sick. We must be ready with all of these, and how could anyone face these if not matured enough to look for a solution, to be brave and never give up. The reason of unsuccessful marriage is the immaturity of what real married life is. Thinking that it is always be with bed of roses. Yes, it is with bed of roses but with thorns.
One gauge of entering marriage is real and true love for each other.

Good day ADEPRETTY, it's been a while since we met. And I am happy to read this here from you on the read.cash home page. Good article with a thoughtful question. At what age should a lady get married?

As a councellor and teacher of the Bible view about marriage, I will always State that there is no set age for marriage. The only right time to get married is at the time you stop being a child. This can happen at any age, childishness is not about age so do marriage. As at the point you start being responsible that's the time your childishness stopped. That's what people called majority. People usually think about getting married when they are financially stable, good as this may seem, it's by no means the least reason to get married. You can get married and become financially stable after all. The only valid reason related to this is that you need to have a job before getting married as a man, but as a woman it doesn't matter. I usually tell young folks to get married early, yes it is good to get married early. Once a young man have a job, next is to get married as quickly as possible to be able to focus on building a great life. In all the best time to get married is to marry early.

Hmm so that's why we have to exercise patience... Before going into any marriage, close one eye and the other opened.. What do I mean by this??? I means close eye on any behavior you aren't supposed to get furious about and open your eyes to know the kind of life time business you are jumping into...look beyond love
