Gentleman's Philosophy

Is There a Right Time to get Married?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide here! To start off, I want to offer my sincerest apologies for not having any articles up in so long, I’ve been incredibly busy with so many musical and professional endeavors which have hindered the amount of time I have to write, but since we’re now in the new year, I intend to hit the ground running with new content on the blog going forward. In any case, I hope you enjoy this article as well as all our other content going forward.

This article will, once again, be an expansion to one of the 15 Rules for Gentlemen to Teach Their Sons, rule number 10 in the case of this article. Rule number 10 states that there is never a right time to get married. Allow me to expand on what I mean by that.

By saying that there’s no right time to get married, I’m not saying that getting married is by any means a wrong decision or that getting married is bad at any time. All I’m saying is that with a decision as big as choosing to spend the rest of your life with someone, there will always be risks going in. Nothing is set in stone, and there can be a multitude of factors that can create problems for both people involved in the sacrament. There can be financial issues, family emergencies, sickness, and not being entirely prepared, just to name a few. While there are risks going in and it’s almost guaranteed that there will be things that will create problems in the marriage, the best thing that anyone looking to get married can do is to simply make the best-informed decision they can make given the time and circumstances. If you know for a fact that the woman you’re dating and looking to marry is a good person who works well with you, treats you with the same respect and dignity you show her, and also knows that she wants to get married, then marrying her could very well be the best-informed decision you can make. Of course, I am no authority on this. I am well aware that every relationship is different. Two people may need more time to date and connect than another two people, the circumstances leading up to their relationship and their marriage may be different. I’m certainly not the arbiter of what might be the aforementioned “best-informed decision”, that can only be left up to the lovebirds. In the words of Parks and Recreation‘s Ron Swanson, “You find someone you like, and you roll the dice.”

So there it is! Apologies if this article seemed a bit more vague and abstract than most of my other articles. This is clearly a very difficult subject to talk about, and I by no means have all the answers. In any case, I hope you enjoyed reading today’s article. Please be sure to share the article, follow the blog, follow The Young Gentleman’s Guide on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, and support us on Patreon. And on that note, this is Max from The Young Gentleman’s Guide, and I’ll see you next time!
