Attention All Men, Are You Really Ready for Marria

Contributor


If you are a guy who is considering marriage it is worth your while to read on.  Most men have heard of a woman’s “biological clock”, but did you know research says we have one too?  recommends Sheila an expert on East Indian Dating.


 


John Malloy, author of “Why Men Marry Some Women and Not Others”, conducted a research study that offers proof that men do have a schedule when it comes to marriage.


 


Mr. Malloy surveyed 2500 men and the results might surprise you.  His study found that age and education level contributed to our “biological clock”.  Men with college degrees were most likely to begin thinking of marriage at age 26.


 


Out of the same men polled, the peak of desire for marriage was between ages 28 and 33.  He also noted that for men with graduate degrees marriage became important between the ages of 30 and 36.


 


Ashok, an expert on Indian dating do's and don’ts suggests for men; age and education levels are reflective of maturity and attitudes toward casual dating versus seriously considering marriage.  Men who were pursuing their long term career goals also looked at relationships with women differently.


 


Signs that a man is ready to contemplate marriage


 


· He no longer has the time for, or the interest in, the singles scene.  For him, meeting women at bars is more of a turn off than a turn on.


· He has established his career and financial independence.  This points to achieving long terms goals like buying a home or other investments.


· He realizes that starting a family is important to him.  This relates to his age and desire to become a family man.


· He knows what he wants in a woman.  He is a man who has determined that shared life goals and values are perhaps more important than good looks alone.


 


However, even if all the signs are there you still need to be cautious.  Dr. Neder, author of “Being a Man in a Woman’s World” makes this wise statement, “…there are not too many divorces, there are too many marriages…”


 


Think about this one guys, by preparing for the commitment of marriage in advance, you reduce the chances of divorce later on.


 


While statistics have proven that most marriages end in divorce, it does not mean yours will.  Knowing you want to be married is step one and step two is finding the right person.
