Marriage is an important aspect of life and thus decision making should not be done very abruptly. It involves a lot of thinking and mental preparation. As every one around us get married, we too follow them and do the same without even realizing whether we have reached that state where now we have to settle down in our lives and have a family. We merely tend to copy every one around us and since others get married after reaching a certain stage, we realize that we too should tie a knot without giving second thought to it.
Parents, grand parents and all other near and dear ones wish good for us. They want only good things for us and nothing else and thus they kind of forces us to get married. As they want to see their children or grand children happy they are forcing this boy to get married. Our society feels marriage is an end to all sorts of troubles we are having. If a boy or girl are not matured enough and bringing bad name to their families, immediate thought that arises in minds of his/hers family members is to make them settled through marriage. If boy is not earning enough and spending all his valuable time and is getting wasted in addictions, parents think that marriage will help him come out of his addictions as responsibility of family will make him a nice person. They do not even give a second thought that when person is not able to take his own responsibility, how can he shoulder others responsibility on his shoulder.
As every one around us more or less settle down after reaching a particular age, finding partners after reaching a matured age becomes difficult. In young age, we can find and choose from lots of options available whereas as one crosses 30 or 35 years of age then scope for them narrows down and options become very less as most of the others are settled. Thus, lots of pressure is exerted so that one settles down at right age so that he/she should not have to go through the stage where finding a suitable partner becomes difficult. Also, society some how does not take bachelorhood very easily. As every one or say most of them are settled in society, it corners them who are not settled.
With changing time, every thing is changing. Earlier childhood marriage was widely practiced. Once it was banned, early marriage i.e., as soon as a boy/girl reaches legal age of marriage they were made to settle down. Education then was not given a lots of importance. However, today not only boys in fact girls excel in education with their masters degrees and have become career oriented. Not only boys, girls too want to have a high paying job before they settle down. Thus, marrying in early 20's is usually not seen and people usually prefer to marry in their late 20's and some even in their 30's. Finding partner in their 30's is not that difficult today when compared to how difficult it used to be a decade ago.
It is up to the boy to decide when he has to finally get married. If he is matured enough at the age of 22 to deal with marriage and is mentally prepared then it is the right time for him to settle down. If he is having second thoughts about it then he should give himself some time and clear all the thoughts. Pressure from family and relatives should not bother him much because if he marry under pressure without convincing himself with good reasons then he may fail miserably. If he is not ready then talk to family and ask for time in which he can clear all his doubts and achieve that is left underachieved.
