Nowadays, people are getting married in their thirties, unlike many years ago when people got married in their twenties. Is this a positive or negative development? Give reasons for your answer and include relevant examples from your knowledge or personal experience.

Years back, marrying before the age of
thirty
was
Suggestion
were
the
trend but
Accept comma addition
trend, but
these days, people are now marrying at
thirty
years and above.
This
, I feel, is a welcome development as supported by the reasons that would be discussed below. The
first
reason why I support people marrying in their thirties is because
marriage
requires maturity and life experiences are what builds
this
maturity in a person.
Therefore
, one has to give
sometime
Suggestion
some time
to gain
experiences
Suggestion
experience
in dealing with people, especially the opposite sex before venturing into
marriage
.
For example
, my elder brother married at twenty five while the wife was twenty one. Five years into the
marriage
, they got divorced. It was obvious they lacked the maturity needed in
marriage
as there was always conflict in their home which they failed to resolve maturely. A
second
reason why it is good to marry at above
thirty
is financial and mental stability, a vital ingredient of a successful
marriage
. The couple has to be financially ready to handle the responsibility that comes with
marriage
and at the same time, be mentally ready. Being married comes with bills to pay, school fees for the children, clothing, feeding and so on.
This
financial stability is likely to be achieved at age
thirty
and above considering the years the person has to invest in schooling. My final reason for supporting people getting married in their thirties is that it gives them time to achieve goals and milestones, which creates a sense of fulfilment, before getting married. A lot of people find that when they get married, they are not able to achieve most of their dreams anymore because of the responsibility that comes with
marriage
and as
such
lacks fulfilment in life. I,
for instance
, enrolled
for
Suggestion
in
a PhD program while single.
Then
marriage
happened when I was twenty five, followed by pregnancy and
subsequently
Suggestion
subsequent
babies. I could not continue the program because I needed time to take care of the children as my husband was always busy. Had I waited, I would have been able to complete the program, get married afterwards, and feel a better sense of achievement. In conclusion,
marriage
at
thirty
and above should be encouraged because of the reasons discussed in
this
essay.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
