Ideally though, I would like him to attractive, funny, and smart, but those are just my prefences. 23 to 25 years old is the ideal age for marriage, in my opinion. I think this because you will most likley be out of collage and have a job. However, it all depends on your circumstances of your own life for when you should get married, because there is no definined age for marriage.

But I do think marriage is very important to people as a symbol of having made it in life and part of having a successful personal life. Most young Americans still want to get married, but they do it only when all the other steps to adulthood are in place—when they have completed their education, when both themself and their partner have jobs, when they have saved up enough for a down payment on a house, or even have had children together, etc. Marriage is a big step and stage in people’s lives.

For example – as marriages were a crucial part of family honour, prestige and not to mention political alliances and economical partnership it was essential that a father find a suitable groom and the only way that was access to vast finance for a dowry as it was seen the larger the dowry, the better status of marriage. The more female offspring the father of family had, the more likely the money would run out and no more dowries could be afforded and therefore the daughters had two options – to become nuns or prostitutes but in most cases this was both. From thereon they were just dumped in convents and most of those nuns didn’t care for
As a banker he had no time to do what he wanted or have a social life, he was getting up at 5:30am and getting to bed around 10 every night, he claimed, “Everyone thinks its glamorous, but it’s not that glamorous.” His girlfriend wanted a camera for her birthday, so he got her one, but shortly after they broke up and he was left with the camera; he started playing around with it, and realized how much fun it was.

Elizabeth’s rejection of Mr. Collins is the way she shows she wants to have a choice but women shouldn’t in that society. A women’s value is to get married one day with at least a husband that is the same or higher position than her family.
