What’s the Perfect Age to Get Maaarrrriiieeeeddddddd?
Over on my favorite website on the planet (am I just a Marie Claire parasite? Yes! Seriously, yes I am), Maura Kelly asks readers — in light of the Royal Engagement and also how America’s median marriage age is the highest it’s ever been — what everyone’s dream age to get married is. One that’s late enough to have a career but early enough to have babies. Which is fair, I guess, but also is a bit of a downer in its breathless, passive, princessish-ness. Oh, but also 31. And then probably again around 40. And then maybe once more at like 60? If I’m still alive, which I probably won’t be.
