I got married when I was 21 years old my husband was 24, our marriage did not work out.

I am 27 years old now when I look back at when I was 21 I was a completely different person, wasn’t sure what I wanted in life. I knew what I really wanted in life when I was 25 years old.

But because of my experiences that is why I believe women should be 25 and men 27 for marriage. To have a baby men should be at least 28 and women
