I am half way through a masters now and I just can't believe the number of people who got married over the summer/this fall. I know a fair amount from both my college and my high school.
What do you think? Is it a good idea? Even assuming you were with your love, would you want to get married right out of college?
- Yes, getting married right out of college is fineVote A
- No, I would not like to get married right after collegeVote B

It's a personal decision. My personal preference? I'm very happy I didn't get married right out of college. I feel lucky about the experiences I've had and things I've gotten to do while still solo in comparison to my friends who met their match at 18 or younger. The people I've met, dates I've been on, decisions I've made. All things I've had the luxury to do as an adult that they didn't have.
HOWEVER, I'm saying that as somebody who didn't meet their soul mate at a young age. That was good for me, but not good for everyone. I'm sure not all of them are really with their soul mate, but for those that are, I'm sure I'd feel much differently if I'd been in their shoes. They got to grow up and spend the rest of their lives with the one by their side, who can hate that?
I'm finally to the point where I feel more of a drive to find that person and settle down after a lot of growing up, fun, and changes regarding my career and love life. That was right for me, and it just simply means I'll do best finding a man who also needed some solo time before meeting me. I don't look down on anyone who made a different decision as long as it was for the right reasons. Those who settled out of fear, I feel sorry for.0
