Nowadays there are an age gap between children and their parents, because there are myriad of men and women who hold the view that delaying marriage has a lot of advantages. I am a staunch believer that postponing marriage will be useful for fathers, mothers and the next generations. In the lines below, merits and demerits as long with my opinion will be explained.
To begin with, formation of the family in the third decade of life has a positive impact on the financial planning for the family. In other word, not only having enough money will help them to define their future goals but it may provide them with the flexibility to take the decision to make investments, savings and financial insurance strategies. This is exemplified by an article published in The Guardian has shown that around 88% of the successful family life is among the couples who have not taken a decision to getting married early although they can secure the marriage cost. Thus, this example shows that if the young generations get married early, they could provide a life of luxury to their offspring.
Nevertheless, despite its merits, some people believe that their will be a generation gap between parents and their children. To illustrate, this gape will make misunderstanding between mothers and fathers and their offspring, but I totally agree the contention and refute the previously mentioned opinion because the young generations, who married, when their age below 20, did not hold the responsibility of taking care of children. For instance, this has been proven by a research paper conducted by Faculty of Education, Cairo University, in 2017, which has shown that the divorce rate is among 70%-80% between newly married couples in the age between 20-25. Hence, the youth should think carefully before taking an early marriage decision.
In Conclusion, after providing the ideas above, the parents should be eligible to take a serious life decision, I still hold the view that the delayed marriage has a great effect on the financial decisions and the parents' mental decisions.
