i met a lady not too long ago. She had an interesting response to my rant, even if she had never actually heard it. She is 39 years old and has never married. She has spend many years getting different degrees and seeing different countries and tracing her family origins. She is not adverse to marriage. in fact, she is looking forward to one day getting married but she advocated staying single until your at least thirty. THe reason was that she felt that by getting married when your young you don't get a chance to know your self. You end up bonding yourself to someone when you just don't know enough about who you are and what you really want. She also said that remaining single gave you the chance to meet many people and witness on a one on one level whereas being paired off too early causes you to only focus on the other person or the people in your immediate circle. I thought it was an interesting point. What do you think?
