Ever heard of saving the best for last? Good things come to those who wait? We’re here to tell you those cliches are the total truth! Here’s why it’s great to be single while all your friends are tying the knot.
1) You can live drama-free. It’s inevitable: Couples have lots of fights about weddings and wedding planning. If you don’t get engaged until you’re older and wiser, you’ll be able to handle drama better and you’ll dish out smaller amounts of it. (At least, in theory.)
2) You can prolong your youth. Married women will tell you that once they tie the knot, they start to feel old. They stay in more and socialize less. So enjoy the opportunity to still feel young—the youngest of all your friends.
3) You will get your money back—and more. Think marriage is light years away? Great! In 2015—or whenever you tie the knot—your friends will be older and more established, which means they’ll most likely be able to afford better gifts. Score!
4) You can save for something big. While your friends are blowing their savings on a caterer, florist and wedding planner, you can put your extra funds toward a fancy vacation—or a better bridal gown someday.
