    Well in order to get married someone needs to love you deeply but seeing as no one does its most likely never

    never, too many gold digggers

    If you fall for a gold digger in the first place it's probably you're own fault, and you are very superficial and materialistic. It's not hard to pick someone on your socioeconomic level to begin with so you don't have to worry about getting rinsed.

    And why is it that nowadays the guys that cry gold digger, mostly these red pill dudes, are the ones have no money or assets to begin with?

    Clearly people who get married at 22/23 is because their parents want to get rid of them and settled, oh what a shame. Are your parents the same or are you being forced to have arranged marriage? How sad

    Plus, how will you be financially stable at 22/23? Oh that's right, benefits 👀

    Realistically, it's true though, isn't it?

    I am 30 now. I only started to think about a marriage in the last year. And I do really want to get married within 2 years time. But it's highly unlikely anyway.

    There will be a loving, intelligent couple marrying at 23 who most likely earn more than you will at 30, so don't assume everyone that age is on benefits. Are you going to be on benefits at 22?

    I used to say 28-29 but with business as steady and solid as it is now I'd drop that to 24/5

    It's not about the salary, I want to have savings and progress in my career. I don't want to get married at a young age and miss out on my 20's. I don't understand how someone is stable at 22 without parental support. Quite sad really. I don't understand how they'll get a mortgage.

    I'd prefer to be financially stable.

    Why did you move out at 18? How were you financially stable to move out unless you went to university accommodation etc then fair enough.

    The way I see it marriage limits options, I want to progress in my career and live my own life. Be selfish and not give up my 20's by getting married and having children.

    Why do you not understand it? Sure if you spend your 20s living out of your means then saving is impossible but when you spend sensibly it's perfectly possible to get a mortgage that age.
