These days, I have many friends who are constantly wondering, Who am I going to marry? When will I meet someone special? I am constantly telling them to go with the flow and not worry about it, but giving advice is a lot easier than taking it. Feeling worried and anxious about finding someone to love is very normal, but seeing statistics like these make show that it is better to wait, take your time to figure out if the relationship is right and settle down with the right person.
Statistics show that 1/3 of marriages end in ten years, and over half of adults over 18 are married. That alone makes marriage seem scary! On top of that, “getting intimate” only two to three times a month definitely seems like a nightmare. This infographic also sights gaining weight, which is every females worst nightmare. Marriage is presented in a very unglamorous light, and making single life look like a cake walk.
While being in love and living happily ever after is the goal, this infographic reminds us that it is best to be sure. Waiting will help you know that you are with the right person and keep you from a dwindling sex life, weight gain and inevitable divorce. Dating for four years seems like a while (A Fell), but as a 21 year old I am in no rush to tie any kind of knot. So all of you singles, perk up, get yourself out there and buy an ipad or 80.
