When Are You Getting Married?
I'm thirty one, single but in a relationship and I don't get it why my relatives and other nosy people have to ask often why I'm not yet married? As if that is not enough they would give me a litany of reasons why I should be married and should start having babies.
I know that most of those who asked means well but it gets so tiring having to explain why I'm not yet married.
I don't know why there is that extra pressure to be married and have kids once you hit thirties?
I don't want to marry in a rush just because people expects me to be settled at a certain age. People get married because they are financially, emotionally and mentally stable to get into that lifelong commitment.
Although, I'm not looking for a lifetime partner because who I am with is the one I want to spend the rest of my life, there's still areas in our lives that needs to be fixed first before we embark on our journey together.
So for the meantime please stop asking when I'm going to be married.
