My both the sons got their jobs immediately after study and they got married when they were 24 years old. But some of their friends couldn't get married till they attained 30 years.
To many elder people, such things might feel selfish, foolish or bad decisions.
But it is rather better to wait than end up in a marriage full of compromise. Earlier marriages lasted because there was too much focus on compromise. Today Youngsters don't want to live a life of compromises but of individual happiness but elders don't seem to understand that point of view. And neither the elder understand that marriage is not everything for a person to live happily.
If a person is happy it is not necessary to get married. It is a simple thing but Indian value system do not give much importance to individual opinion over family will.

Hence the marriage of such ambiguous youths get unduly delayed. Even if they are married at the late age, they face a lot complications in case of ladies in attaining motherhood.The years ahead are quite challenging in raising their issues. Hence even though they get their careers of their choice, their married lives are not likely to be enjoyable ones.
In old age when a boy or girl had reached his/her puberty parents would begin to get them married at the earliest. There was no such notion of career-building from either side. The boy would hinge on his parents for all post-marriage expenses. But now the time has changed, a boy and a girl will not marry until he/she is settled in his/her life.
In the past premarital relationship between a girl and boy was taboo in society but now it has become common to have a physical relationship between two persons, even living together as spouses are also accepted by our society. It is also the main reason for to delay in getting married.
I think unnecessary procrastination in marriage is not the right decision. A person should settle in his/her married life at the earliest.
Not only the boys but many girls are also very conscious for their career today and they will not go for marriage until they are settled and got a good job. By the time they get a good job they are already crossing an age of 30 which is on higher side considering the marriage age.
This is not a very healthy situation but until unless the career making becomes a quick process and employment condition in the country improves, it is difficult to have early marriages for the young people today
