Thirty and Not Married!

I took this weird, winding road to where I am now.

I’m thirty years old.

I’m unmarried.

I don’t have children.

Ending up in Master’s Commission for seven years threw a kink in the “normal” life, if you will. A lot of people end up attending college after high school, falling in love with someone, getting to work on a career and having some kids.

Not me.

I took this weird, winding road to where I am now.

I’m thirty years old.

I’m unmarried.

I don’t have children.

I’m two classes away from a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

What really got to me for years?

I wasn’t married! All my friends were getting married except for me. I’d been a bridesmaid about five times (or more…I have enough crappy dresses to prove it). Now, going on 3-0, it’s actually not as huge of a deal to me as it was when I was 24. (Though my current boyfriend might argue with me here. =P Love you, babe)

Why?

My dating life has gone through a radical change.

  1. In some ways you can be very thankful you’re unmarried at 30. While not as young as some of my contemporaries, I still married in my 20s. It didn’t work out. While there are no rules, and I’m sure many who marry young have happy lives, I know I wasn’t mature enough or worldly-wise enough for marriage at that time.

    The trend in society, at least here, is for marriage to occur later and later, I think the median age is now heading for 30. I suspect Christians are an exception to this trend.

    But let’s face it, Christians are keen to marry young so they can have sex. I wonder how many bad marriages resulted from that?

  2. Hello,

    I started dating when I was 31. I suppose I was too repressed, but I don’t mean this is your case.
    From that time on I got married, got children, and got a new job.
    Now I am 43 and I can say I could never imagine what was just about to happen in my life. So, don’t lose your hope.
