Salam,

Allrightey here's a question for the sisters. I read somewhere that most people meet the people they're going to marry by the time they're 25, whether they know it or not.

Thoughts?


True or False??

I really just can't wrap my head around this one.

haha! I do that with most of my posts here and end up posting nothing. Smiley

In reply to the original statement, I guess I disagree with that. I know many couples who came to know each other much later than the age of 25(where mostly one of them was older than 25).

Oh !!! Ive just turned 25 2 months ago!!

I dunno how true this statement is though, lots of people marry later in life without ever having met their partner before.

Meaning... ppl tend to meet a lot of people during high school/college etc family friends. Then they tend to stay in the same social circles. So you'd at least be acquainted with/know of someone who later on you'd be interested in/set up for marriage.

I'm thinking this is like 90% of ppl who marry.... after 25 like who are you going to meet new? unless you go on a matrimonial or something??

Is this question specific to the west? coz in India, you don't meet who you're going to marry, ever! You won't even know who he/she is and that you're getting married until your parents tell you and maybe slam a photoshopped picture in your face Tongue

Of course this analysis cant be general. More than 50% of our sisters in Nigeria marry before the age of 20 and among the rest only a handful cross 25 without getting married.

True, in my case... I got married at 26, and it was arranged.

We met once when I was 4 and once when I was 18....

There's no adventure, there's only ridiculousness, at least in our part of the world.

btw, photoshop should be banned Tongue A few weeks ago, I went to get my pp picture taken for some forms and the studio guy photoshopped even those. He made me look like a caucasian lol

Thank God we have nothing like photoshop here. But I agree with you, those people should be banned.

I think on average according to my own observations, most married couples met at university so between the ages of 19-22 after that it gets more difficult I reckon, as social lives are then limited to friends you've made (typically at university), at work most people are married or in relationships.


And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186
