Did you get married young? What benefits do you think came from it? Or are you planning to get married after 30? Are there any health issues following it? Read on to know more-
Marrying age is one of those topics that get people all troubled as one is supposed to increase one’s responsibilities. With the times changing, not getting married until you reach thirty seems to be the new norm. The times when people got married in their early twenties are long gone apparently. The societal pressure of getting married late is undoubtedly a boon, no denying that. But, there are more than one reasons why getting married early is not such a bad decision after all. While waiting till you’re well settled before you marry makes total sense, tying the knot earlier has its own benefits.
Your Body: At an age prior to 30, your body is ready for pregnancy and its demands. Fertility is high and the risk for complications, such as hypertension or gestational diabetes, is low. Researchers say that the younger a woman is when her first baby is born, the lower her lifetime breast cancer risk is. Younger women are less likely to have premature or low-birth-weight babies than women in their 30s. You're also less likely to have gynecological problems, like uterine fibroids, which often become more problematic over time. The risk of miscarriage is also far lower: It's about 10 percent for women in their 20s. Miscarriage risk jumps to about 34 percent for women in their early 30s
The Baby: Unfortunately fertility rates for women start to drop around 30. After 35 they decrease more dramatically. So, getting married earlier provides the opportunity to conceive younger. Experts say the average woman's fertility peaks in her early 20s. Also, a younger woman's eggs are less likely than an older woman's to have genetic abnormalities which could lead to abnormalities in a baby. So, from a strictly biological perspective, the best time for conceiving and carrying a baby is before being 30 years old. ”The younger a woman is, the younger her eggs are, which means they are less prone to chromosomal mistakes," say Doctors. As a result, your baby's risk of any chromosomal abnormality (1 in 500) or of Down syndrome specifically (1 in 1,250) is relatively low.
Your Maturity Level: Besides the physical advantages, there are other pluses: "You're more flexible in your 20s, which is good for your marriage and for the transition to parenthood," says Researches. When people get married later in life, instead of "our way," there is often "my way" and "your way," which can make marriage and parenting difficult, they say. You’ll have an easier time having kids, increase their chances of being healthy, and be better able to keep up with them. While modern advances have allowed folks to postpone having children, the reality is that both men and women have a biological clock and having kids get harder and riskier the longer you wait.
These simple reasons prove that marrying before the age of 30 has a lot of plus sides. So plan getting married before the age of 30!!
