Me not old, okay?

Note: Suanie beat me to the punch on this one. As I have already wasted precious grey matter on this dunnowhatsit, might as well post it up.




Anyway, I get asked this question a lot nowsadays. I mean really, really A LOT.

“So, when are you getting married?”

Why? Why? Is it because I am OLLLLDDDDD?

This impending spectre of doom led me to wonder (empty noggin and all). What is the appropriate age to tie the knot and get hitched?

I am sure we all have our own opinions, based on our own personal experiences.

Let’s find out shall we?

Here is an extract taken from the United Nations’ Population Division Report issued in 2000 based on various censuses taken.


[SMAM – Singulate mean age at marriage]

The population and housing census conducted in 2000 by the Malaysian Department of Statistics revealed the following:

“A comparison among the three main ethnic groups at the Malaysia level showed that the mean age at first marriage for males is highest for Chinese (30.6 years), followed by Indians (28.8 years) and Bumiputera (27.8 years). This pattern of age at first marriage among the ethnic groups was similarly observed for females whereby the highest was recorded for the Chinese (27.0 years), followed by the Indians (25.4 years) and Bumiputera (24.5 years).”

Wow. Malaysian’s are tying the knot much, much later than I expected.

So, for all you people out there: Don’t ask me when I am getting married! 😦

I am still YOUNG. I am still fucking YOUNG. I. Am. Still. Young.
