Do you ever get pressured for marriage when approaching 30?

When you over 25 but not yet 30, do you ever get pressured from society or even your friends/family to settle down with someone? Would you rather be single and happy or unhappy but have a partner cuz you don't end up finding the right one?

  • I got married really young and regretted it almost instantly. Now I'm divorced and you can bet I'm not about to rush into marriage again.

  • Nah my parents and friends don't really talk about it. I think they know that I don't need to be in a relationship or married to be happy. They would support me if it did happen.

  • I know girls who have dated and even married because they just thought they would rather be with a jackass then be alone. Of coarse i have no right to judge them but thats a shitty way to live life. I would never date soneobe just so i can be with soneone, but oh well. Everyone has a right to live their life how they want for better or worse. I suggest you do want YOU want to do and fuck what society or what other people think.

    • Im looking at these other responces and i can say with a lot of cobfidense that i deserve mho.

  • Well, look at it this way. Your options start to diminish when you hit 30+. So if you aren't finding the guy now, why would you find him in your 30's with less power/options?

  • It's funny, I've never gotten a single "hey pal, when are ya gonna settle down?" from *anyone*. Not ever.

    Do I feel any pressure? No, not in the slightest. I'd ideally like to have kids in the next several years, or at least be on the path toward that, but I feel zero immediate pressure.

  • I get asked when I'm getting married sometimes, it doesn't bother me. Other people can't put pressure on you unless you let them.

  • At the moment I'm just asked where's my girlfriend. I wouldn't be surprised if I was constantly asked when I'd settle down with someone after 25.

  • Lol I've been getting the marriage question since I was 18. My hometown is in this bubble where apparently the average age of getting married is 17-21. So at 22 and having decided to go to college instead, I'm an old maid haha

    • Yikes! That's an early age range to get married. Your not an old maid. Lots of girls get married in the early thirties nowadays. :) by the way which hometown are you from?

    • One in the midwest lol

  • lol, my mother use to tell me I needed to settle down a decade ago. which is extra of because I wasn't even dating anyone at the time. luckily, she's given up on bothering me about it.
