Hey there, future husband! As you’re gearing up for another day of bachelorhood, we wanted to give you five reasons why you should consider getting married in your twenties. Now, we know what you’re thinking: “marriage is sooo expensive/boring/time-consuming.” But trust us, there are plenty of benefits to getting hitched in your 20s.
YOU’RE MORE LIKELY TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE ABOUT MAJOR LIFE DECISIONS.
You and your partner have probably seen more of the world by the time you hit your 20s. You’ve experienced more, grown more, and changed more than you ever thought possible. And all those life lessons have brought you two closer together.
Sure, you might have some disagreements about small things – but when it comes to the really big questions in life, you’re on the same page. You’re both ready to make a commitment, start a family, and embark on this next chapter of your lives together.
YOU’LL HAVE MORE ENERGY TO ACTUALLY ENJOY YOUR MARRIAGE.
You’re young, you’re carefree, and you have plenty of energy to actually enjoy your marriage. Plus, you haven’t had time to rack up a bunch of annoying bad habits that you’ll have to break once you tie the knot.
You’re also less likely to be bogged down by student loan debt, mortgage payments, or pesky kids. In fact, you may not even have started working yet! All of this means that you and your spouse can actually enjoy each other’s company without constantly having to worry about money or logistics.
YOU’RE LESS LIKELY TO GET DIVORCED.
When you’re in your twenties, you’re still young and carefree – you have yet to experience the stresses of mortgages, children, and career changes. This means that you’re less likely to get divorced since you haven’t yet put your marriage through the wringer.
Sure, there are exceptions to every rule. But as a general guideline, waiting until your thirties or forties to get married usually means that you’re more likely to get divorced. You’ve been around the block a few times, and you know what you want (and don’t want) in a spouse. Plus, by that age, you’ve probably accumulated a few more bills and responsibilities.
YOU’LL HAVE MORE TIME TO FOCUS ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
You know what they say: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” Well, the same goes for a marriage. If you’re reading this, chances are you’re in your 20s, which means it’s not too late to tie the knot.
Sure, you may have other things you’d rather be doing – like watching Game of Thrones or taking cool Instagram pics at alluring locations. But if you want a successful and lasting marriage, it’s important to start off on the right foot. That’s why marrying in your 20s is a great idea. You still have plenty of time to focus on your relationship – and you won’t have to worry about pesky things like kids or mortgages.
YOU’LL BE ABLE TO START YOUR FAMILY SOONER.
You’re young and you have your whole life ahead of you. You’re still figuring out who you are and what you want out of life. Marriage can help you figure that out.
So if you’re thinking about marriage, why wait? Tie the knot while you’re still young and carefree – before the realities of life set in.
