Early Marriage Tips

09 December 2014, 13:01

Reasons Why You Should Get Married Early. In fact, there are certain plausible advantages of getting married at a younger age. The belief that early marriage comes as a burden and an incomprehensible commitment, is not really a standard that applies to all. So, here are some reasons that explain why marrying early can be a good decision.

#1. The perfect age saga marriage is more about the ‘perfect person’ than the ‘perfect age’.

Many argue on the necessity of being prepared for marriage. But in reality, you can never be prepared for it whether you are in your 20s, 30s or 40s. So, if you find your prince charming or dream girl at an early age, then there is no point actually waiting for long to get married. It is all about spending the beautiful moments of your life with the person you love. So, think about finding the right person rather than waiting for the right time to arrive.

#2. You get more quality time with each other

The young couples usually do not have the pressure of achieving parenthood immediately after their marriage. In fact, they get enough time to know and understand each other before the biological clock starts ticking. So, when you get married early, you have a lot of time on your hands before you indulge into family planning or saving money for future. You can enjoy your life with your partner without worrying much about these things. You can see the world together and steer your life the way you want it.

#3. More harmonious relationship

You are more likely to be a companion and a friend to your partner rather than just being a husband or a wife. While you would be learning to live life as adults, you would be more flexible with each other and more open to compromise. Also, you will have enough time to adjust with each other’s temperament, and understand one another before you delve into more serious and deeper responsibilities of life. This way, you are likely to be more compatible than the couples who get married late.

#4. More lovemaking time

You will get to experience those beautiful moments of cosy lovemaking with your partner more frequently as compared to those who get married late. It surely will help you to feel strongly connected with your partner emotionally as well as physically. And since you do not have the pressure of having kids right after your marriage, there is ample time to thoroughly enjoy this time with each other. Also, many researches show that after having kids, the couples usually experience a dip in their lovemaking activities due to reasons like low energy, lack of time etc.

#5. Sharing each milestone

The milestone of achieving parenthood is of course one thing, which every couple experiences together. But when you marry early, there is a lot more that you achieve as well as celebrate together. Whether it is buying your first car, moving in to your own home, achieving success in career- the happiness increases manifold when you have a partner by your side to share these amazing experiences of life.

#6. Being a great parent

As you would have spent so much time together, you are expected to share a really strong bond with each other. This level of understanding between the two of you is one of the key requirements of being a great parent. When you attain parenthood in your twenties, you are all the more excited as well as energetic to spend time with your child. On the other hand as you grow old, you might be burdened with issues like financial well-being of your family or your own health. This will take away the time from you to be with your child. Furthermore, seeing your child become independent before you retire is an achievement in itself. While you become a proud parent at the right time, do not let it take away the charm from your married life.

#7. A second chance

Although this is not at all desirable, but if at all things go terribly wrong in marriage, the younger couples get a slightly better chance to bring everything back on track. Since they would have already shared many ups and downs together, they would know how to handle each other during tough times. Surely, an early marriage is no recipe for success. But, it is necessary to understand the nuances of a marriage to make it an accomplishment. Getting married by mid-twenties is a great option and with the above reasons, we hope you know why.
