What's the rush?

The State of Utah has the lowest average age of marriage in the U.S. 

I know well over 20 people who I grew up with who are now engadged/already married/have kids.  

So what I want to know is... What's the rush?

One answer I get over and over again every time I ask this question is, "Why wait?"

I personally don't believe that after knowing someone for hardly a month or two, you know for a fact that they are the one and only person for you and you must marry them as soon as possible... honestly now. What ever happened to getting to know someone before "taking the plunge"? I don't think you can know enough about a person to take said plunge in such a short amount of time.

So here is my reply...

Live life slowly.
Live life deeply.
Live life lovingly,
live life knowingly.

If you're "meant to be" with someone, they'll stick around. Just enjoy getting to know each other better. There is no rush on love. And if there is then you have a problem.

I want to see the world before I settle down. I want to take every adventure that comes my way before I continue on to the next chapter in my life. I want to know who I am and what I need before I get to know my someone else.
