I am in graduate school. I am 26 years old. I am working on a doctorate.
I just met my favorite girl in the world. Unfortunately, she is graduating this semester and moving away for graduate school. This reminds me of the two times that I left a girl behind to move away and go to graduate school. It makes me wonder, should I have gotten married?
I am at the point where about 80% of my high school friends my age are married, and about 60% of my college friends are married. I am trying to wait for the right girl. Basically, am I going to wait forever? Is it bad that I am waiting to finish school to get married?
I am the only doctoral candidate in my program who is single.
p.s. I don't want to get divorced, I want to do it right the first time.
I say this, because many of the high school friends, about 30% are currently divorced or going through a divorce.
I imagine when I start being gainfully employed my standards will no longer be too high.
