Ladies, are any of you feeling pressure to get married because of age (late 20’s)? Most of my friends are either married/ engaged but dating or finding the right guy is so hard these days. Thoughts?

Married at 23, divorced at 25, married again at 34. After I got that first one out of the way I felt zero pressure to be married in 20s. I cared more about finding the right person. I also LOVED being single. It’s so fun. Dating is fun. Being alone is fun. You have a lot more control over your life and time. Being married with kids is also amazing, but one isn’t better than the other. Go at your own pace and enjoy every phase you are in while you are in it.

I used to be before but recently have been feeling more relaxed about this; marriages can also lead to divorce and I’d rather wait to be with a person who is a good fit, even if that means I wait a few more years :) have seen people be together for years and break up and I just want to make sure that I’m the right person and that I’m with them for the right reasons :)

I definitely am feeling the pressure and I know only one couple that is getting engaged 😅 I think we all need to remember that you’re still figuring yourself out in your late 20s and everyone’s path will be different. If we set these expectations to follow your peers/society’s expectations you could be setting yourself up to settle for someone not worth your time and the rat race will never end.

Don’t do it! Who cares! You be you.

If you get married, you'll feel pressure to have the first kid, when you do then it will be for the second or a house if you don't have it already... so on and so on. These expectations won't go away, you need to block them.
