Dear Miss Dela,
I recently turned 30 and feel the pressure to get married. I have been with my boyfriend for two years now but we have not discussed our future together. I am happy where I am right now but at the same time I feel like maybe it’s time for my boyfriend and I to take the next step. What should I do?
Honestly, if you’re happy where you are and do not feel the need to talk about marriage then don’t bother to bring it up. There’s always going to be someone that will question you on why you are not married. The divorce rate is still 1 in 2, What’s the rush! There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being single at 30. Nowadays, women are waiting until they are in their late 30’s or early 40’s to get married. It’s not the 1960’s!. We are in a progressive age where women are more independent than ever. Times have changed. Keep enjoying your life and focus on the now. When you and your boyfriend are ready to tie the knot, you will have that discussion. For the meantime there’s no need to worry.
