Some of them feel late marriage is better in order to complete higher education as they believe that marriage creates disturbances.

Some delay marriage as they wait for their elder brothers or sisters to get married.

Some of them don’t think of marriage as they feel it is the responsibility of their parents.

Even some feel marriage is not prerequisite for better life. So they might not think of it.

Very few delay it due to their aversion for opposite sex :-).

Advantages :

      Majority of the people are saying getting married at a later age than getting married at an early age. Later age people has more of a maturity and understanding. Again I believe in astrology matching in marriage a top priority. That's where the nature of the understanding and agreement between the husband and wife come from. But the down side of this is when the husband or the wife begins to have an affair with someone else, and that just flushed the successful marriage down the drain. The important thing is, when the husband and wife is getting along great, then why devalue the marriage by having an affair or doing something else that would ruin it down the road. In our East Indian culture the divorce rate is through the roof. When are we going to get out from the fantasy world and get back to reality? In the olden days our East Indian people had followed the traditional astrological way. and back in the good old days marriages last forever. Back then, parents, the guy or the lady accepted the way you are, wether you were disabled or not, fair skin, light skin, big or small, skinny, fit or plump. Dam, where the hell did those days went where people cared as much. Back then there was a thing call, "True Love, and Unconditional Love."

      One other thing I would like to express about Astrology matching: is that when your getting along with that person, and the understand level is perfect, then that mean the relationship is in a comfort level, to where having an affair with some else is a waste on time. My brothers and sisters, by having an affair with some else also brings that other anger out in to your "main" relationship that your with. So in my personal opinion why brother with an extra marital affair, or if some of you people have boyfriend and girlfriend, just be faithful to that person. And build up the love, emotion and trust with that person. Sadly today not to many people follows the astrology way. Astrology signs shows us how we are different from each other. From what we have in common to how we can get along and move up to he next step in life. I hope and pray, that break up and divorce rates will go down some day. Good Luck & God Bless you folks around the whole wide world.

      Well, I believe that what ever in life is suppose to happen will happen, in the subject of marriage. For me, I've been studying astrology and looking at some married couples that have been married for a while. Some of the couple who had married a partner the opposite of the horoscope sign, tend to be with that person forever, it also depends on the religious and race of those couple. Astrology signs that are compatible with the couple, the marriage should last forever. This subject matter also depends on the couple, are they getting along with each other perfectly, in which the don't need another person to have each other needs met, or are they agreeing with each other enough that they don't need the opinion of others. I personally would like to see the divorce, and break up rate go down. And I would like to see people loving each other forever, being faithful to on another, and mot importantly being with the same person in sunny and rainy days. I strongly believe that an astrology matched couple will take their relationship higher to the next level up. Astrology signs doesn't only tells us who are we compatible with, but it tells us how the relationship will be. I am East Pacific Island Indian, and this is how we arrange marriages in our culture. Originally it's done in this way, but our today's culture and young generation now doesn't follow that way. Ever since the 90s divorce rate is sadly high, because nobody cares of doing things the traditional ways. Yet, even sadly some not all perfect arrange marriage doesn't last forever, because of negative influence from outside. Or some perfect Astro match doesn't know what they have is very, special, rare, and genuine. And that's how my brothers and sisters, is the the foundation of a well balance marriage lies in astrology. I strongly encourage couple who's astrology matching perfectly or some what matching to give them another chance and work things out, before its to late.... I hope by posting this message, I had made a difference in someone's life or even by someone reading this will save someone' relationship or marriage. May God Bless you all, and Good Luck to you all.

      Early marriage is more better than late marriage because there is an adage which says:-make hay while d sun shines
