I do not know others',but my parents do.maybe because of my age,this year I am twenty-two years old and actually,I have a boyfriend,but because we are still students in university,so we all think we should delay our marriage.but,my parents worry about this very much,they all think they have achieved their responsibility after my marriage.so sometimes,I am scared of ringing to them in case discussing the matter.so I want to know how about your parents?thank you for your sharing here with me!

Nope, they just waited for me to get married. I married on my late 20's and it is really okay for them. Because I improved myself first and alleviated my financial status. When I felt ready already the right man came along.

I don't think that you are too old to get married.take your own time complete your studies ,go ahead in your career & then at right age marry whenyou are fully mentally prepared.try to make you parents understand that.

Yes, my parents have been bugging me also to get married for quite a couple of years already. And it's not actually them who's pestering me but all my siblings and relatives. I find it funny because several years ago my father and mother wouldn't let me even have a boyfriend for fear that i might get married early. That's because i'm the eldest in the family and supports in the schooling of my brother and sisters. But now that i'm free of this obligation, this topic is always raised on every family gathering. Sometimes it makes me feel irritated never having to hear the end of it but i know my parents are just concerned of me. Oh well, i guess this is something i have to deal with for as long as i'm single.
