35 Reasons To Justify Not Getting Married Until 35

And even though they are a night of absolute debauchery, there’s a reason you should postpone taking the leap until at least 35 because you’re just not ready. Actually there are 35 reasons. You know the age old saying, “You could either marry a 23-year-old now, or you could marry a 23-year-old in ten years…and if you’re lucky you can marry another in 20 years.” At least that’s what my friend Dale says. He’s a sick puppy, but damn it if it isn’t the truth.
