Life in campus is interesting,topics in girl's dorm are always changing as we are getting older and older(which is annoying) When we were fresh,topics were mainly focus on the study,teachers,new classesmates,and also geek we saw on the roads. A year later,we switch to loving things,like "some guy in the next class has a crush on some girl","i saw a good-looking guy today in the library",etc.kind of gossipy, When it came to junior,internship issue became popular,and of coz,love still accompanied.At the same time,"how time flies" was quoted more often. Final,as senior students,we are no longer youg.Topics are more about Job hunting,when to marry,when to have babies,future life. Is constellation or astrology reliable? Coz my roomate was searching online last night,trying to figure out when she could marry and what kind of person she's gonna be with.And the result turned out to be between 30-33,which made her frustrated.Don't wanna be that late.lol. As i am concerned,most girls don't want to make it later than 30,and they also wish that their husbands to be rich,or not poor at least.Guys are feeling pressure on it. Buddies,when do you want to get married? Why not share your ideas here

Honestly, I think you're wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong or weird or undesireable about getting married after 30. And I have a really big problem with judging men by their income. It's unfair and greedy. When I was younger, I had no intention of getting married until after I was 30. As it turns out, I met the man I want to marry and I'll be married at 21, something I NEVER thought would happen. My fiance is NOT rich, or even well off. He's a standard "starving" college student and he was raised in near-poverty level. He never really bought me gifts, especially not expencive ones, never paid for me, nothing like that. And he'll never be rich, either, he's going to be a teacher and I don't see what's wrong with that.

Public teachers make very good money, have GREAT benefits and get 2-3 months off per year, many holidays ($50,000 to $60,000 entry level in California). They generally work without a boss bothering them about bottom line profits. Also they are well-respected in the community. The only issue is undisciplined students. Anyway the last thing you have to worry about is poverty, which i know you arent concerned about in the first place. good luck and bless your marriage!

I don't know where you live, but out here teachers make a p*ss-poor living. We can't even get teachers to be teachers and our schools are suffering horribly, we're one the the lowest ranked school districts in the nation with one of the highest student populations. We're so hard-up that they're actually lowering the standards to become a teacher so we can get more bodies in the schools to at least alleviate the over-crowding. Not to mention the rapidly rising cost of living. Also, with his intellect and education field, he could concievablybecome well-off if he were to choose a different career, but teaching is what he wants to do. His parents gave him sh*t about it his whole life, "Why would you wanna be a teacher when you could be rich".

Personally I hope to be married in the next 2-5 years (willing that I have a good man). I'm 22 now and 5 years from now i'll be 27. In all reality I wanted to have my first child when I was 25 but I am almost positive that that is not going to happen because before I have my kids I want to make sure I can afford them and have a stable and loving home for them. I don't want to have to depend on anybody in order to take care of my kids. I actually though of having a child in the next year or two but that's not gonna happen cause I am not at a point yet where I feel 100% comfortable bringing a chils into his world. At this time I am about 90% sure that I could have a child and care for them well but I don't want to unless my child has a father they can depend on like I did (and still do). For me I want my child to grow up in an environmet with two parents. So overall as soon as I find that right man I will be ready to get married and have kids.

I got engaged at 22 and married at 23. My husband was also 23 when we got married. I think it was a good age for us. We have been married almost 8 years now and have 4 children. He's 31 and I'll be 31 tomorrow (Dec. 13). I can't imagine if we had waited until we were this age to get married. Of course, we say, if we hadn't had the kids we probably wouldn't have stuck it out as long as we did. Not that we don't still love each other but we just don't along most of the time and if we didn't have kids we probably would have given up and gone our separate ways.

I'm still 17 years old. But I already have a plan to have a marriage with my current girlfriend when we reach 27 years old or later age. We will just save some money to start our own life. Anyways, It is still far from the present day, I'm just wishing the best for us. ehe =)
