Just marry! because you are 25!

You are a women in an edge of 25 years of marvelous experience in life.

You’ve been burden for your parents (some) since 20+ years now, its time to pass it on well “settled man”, c’mon you don’t need to have ambitious life or a choice.

You are ageing and wrinkles will hug your face anyway so, before you gets old and ugly, marry!

Before your unknown/known relatives ask about your age and advice you about marriage. just marry!

Before someone doubt your life, just marry!

Before your life gets mess and questionable because you can’t handle it, just marry! you are no capable of taking care of yourself, are you?

Because your friends are getting married, so just marry!

Because its tradition of womanhood to get married before 25, just marry! before patriarchy haunts you.

You are no worthwhile in 21st century and your legacy of dependency should pass on to next generation.

P.S: May be Not everyone is having this type of mindset but still most percent of people live on this attitude/tradition. By the way this is the reality in most of the patriarchy hallway.

Want to change all these stereotypes but wait I’m I being feminist or rude, arrogant to my parents?

  1. Very interesting and true. This is a traditional mindset. Somehow it is changing now. I’ve known many parents who do not subscribe to that view. They are happy with their daughters’ lives, careers and achievements.
    I agree that the mindset of the entire society needs to change. Very well written

  2. Our parents and elders have our best intentions but sadly, those intentions don’t count our happiness or if we are ready. I grew up a culture where I have to behave a certain way, be someone that I’m not. It’s very conflicting . On one end we love our parents and we don’t want to disappoint, on one end is ourselves with hope and dreams of our own. Personally , I learned to follow my heart because when problems comes to a marriage , it’s us that will solve it , not our parents . Wishing you all the happiness.

    1. You are right, marriage is not just ceremony it’s life long commitment. The place I come from, society just wants to follow their tradition, they don’t care that two lives stand to commit for life long. The sad part is that we are living in the 21st century everything needs to be upgraded everyday but not marriage concept😕

  3. Thanks, Vishal. Whenever I try to break this stereotype, I always get to hear what do you know about the tradition? And they start to complain about our generation standards😅. But still trying to change🙂.

  4. It is actually ironic how your relatives tell you not to have a boyfriend at around 15 years old to 19 years old – something like that. Then you reach 20 years old and up, they’ll be going to ask you why you don’t have a boyfriend still. They’ll be insisting you should get married at that age. LOL.

  5. Amazing post!
    And if they think we’re rude or something like that, not our problem. The important thing is to be ourselves and make our own choices happily and satisfied 💕
    Thank you for sharing it so beautifully 🙂

  6. Awesome post! Also, I know many women who put that expectation on themselves and think that there’s something wrong with them if they don’t marry by that age. And it’s a lie we’ve all been fed. Thank you so much for this post.
