Average age of first-time brides is now 30
Women are walking up the aisle almost a decade later than their mothers did, as they enjoy more relationships and devote more attention to their careers.

In addition, many couples are choosing never to tie the knot, with the number of weddings is at its lowest level for more than a century.

Experts believe the data reflect the fact that marriage has simply become another ‚Äúlifestyle choice‚ÄĚ in recent decades, particularly for women who have far more options open to them than just raising a family, as they are now better educated and better paid than previous generations. ...

Thanks, and congratualtions on being married 31 more years than myself. My wife and I got married in 2004. She's originally from Indonesia, and I met her at a Christian dating service.

We were both in our early 40s when we tied the knot (first time for each of us), so there's hope--even in the sinful and confusing times we presently live--to eventually get one's life sorted-out & find a mate. With God's help.

Proverbs 19:14

San Jose John,

Congratulations to you as well!

Pr 18:22 "[Whoso] findeth a wife findeth a good [thing], and obtaineth favour of the LORD."

I remember as a kid looking forward to having a wife and children, and providing for them; but by jr. high school it was apparent that women were being trained to be INDEPENDENT. Some of my male classmates even took home economics classes while some of my female classmates took wood-shop and metal-shop classes.

From that point on co-eds seemed like other "men" to me with greatly diminished desire for me, and me for them.

All this "progressive" education and child-rearing evidently swelled the pride and self-esteem of the previous generation ("greatest generation"?) but was VERY confusing and disheartening to me.

Still is.

"Women are walking up the aisle almost a decade later than their mothers did..."

Why marry when you can have the "benefits" of marriage without the responsiblities?

It's sad but in my community I see Christian parents and grandparents encouraging their children to delay marriage and children all for the sake of education and career and at the expense of purity.

Good thoughts. If any women I knew at college were pursuing an "Mrs. Degree," it was not evident to me.

And thanks to our culture's Pelagian idealization of children (i.e., childishness), young men are not encouraged to grow up, so young women who *want* to marry have to hedge their bets & be able to support themselves should their husbands' "inner child" (i.e., inner jerk) become intolerable. Mature men do not have "Midlife Crises."

'Many young people today are still at university at that age."

So it takes almost half of one's life, as a Professional Student, to prepare for the remainder.
