Interesting that the social stigma is finally wearing off for those who wait to get married after they have begun to lay out a solid foundation for their individual lives. We are very pleased to hear this, & also agree that you shouldn’t have to choose between furthering yourself/your education or getting married.
This is probably the most important piece of info to us from this article:
“The study also shows that well-educated women (i.e. women who get married later in life) are less likely to get divorced, owing in part to the fact that young marriages demonstrate an increased likelihood of ending.”
While we agree that it’s common in society now to see young couples wed and after a few years go their separate ways, it’s still possible to marry young and make it work long-term. We are simply thrilled that our more experienced brides are shedding the stereotype of being past the “marriageable age” that was common not so long ago.
