It's at about a zero. Maybe even negative.

I can love and be with someone, but I've never found marriage necessary. Even in elementary school, my second grade teacher would tell me that I'd " come around one day".

I think if I ever did it, it would be strictly because the man I love NEEDS that from me.

Age definitely is a factor. My friends who are my age or older, who want to get married, and are no where near are freaking out. One of my best friends can't stand to see someone announce their engagement on FB without getting a little bitter. SOME women feel like failures if they aren't married by a certain point.

]On a scale from 1-10
Do you think age has an impact on how important marriage is for an individual? 

Yes for me age mattered.
--I married in my late 30s, with a career established so marriage for me dropped from an "8" in my 20's to a "4" in my thirties.  I was growing more comfortable being single for so long and accepting the fact that I could possibly be single for the rest of my life.  Thats when I met my husband.


How long do you expect to get married after entering a relationship?

we got married a year and 2 months after we met.  I think the older you are the more sure you are about who you want to spend the rest of your life with.  I think in hindsight however it probably would have been good for us to wait another year before we tied the knot.

I will when I'm ready

I like your response! But why do you feel that another year would've been better to wait?

At my age,

I'd say a 5.   And each year that will increase by one point.

I think I'll be ready to settle at 25.

I know I want to get married; I know that fact, but the idea of having sex with just one person for the rest of my life is a little off putting. But I do want to get married though. I do see myself getting married within the next 3 years and that shyt is scary; I hope I can remain faithful.
