I wouldn't be too worried - some women have had children at 46 and 47. My mom was 45 when I was born! But be sure that you are marrying a man who is Christlike, not perfect of course, but who strives toward a blessed three-way marriage - him, you, and the Lord.

Simply wait for God's best; believe me he'll be worth it!!! And trust God he knows the desires of your heart. This is my testimony, I was unable to have children, but have 2 beautiful stepchildren (adults now) & 3 gorgeous grandkids. Thank you for God's choice .. I married in my 30's.

Many of my uncles married in their mid to late thirties, to women in those age ranges, and those marriages have all lasted and been blessed. All have raised families. Better to wait than to rush into a divorce.

You don't need to worry at all.
God knows all of your heart's desires. But also He knows what is the best for you. You just have to trust him. And even if you will not have a family of your own that means that God gave you the best.

And. steve, if beautiful women go for the man with the money, and men with money go for the beautiful young bimbo ... what do yuo think heppens? .... that high divorce rate!

For the young beauty, once she has her rich old man, will now start to look for an exciting male.
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/3/05

, i am just stating what i have observed; men who earn a lot are more likely to get married than poor men are, and beautiful women are more likely to find a husband than other women are.
---steve on 10/3/05

Steve, yes it is normal for a man to be older than his wife (that usually applies to couples who marry in their 20s). Men are about 5 years behind women in maturity until they are in their 30s (speaking generally). If peaking applied to earnings wouldn't you expect all 25 year old women to want 60 year old men, and if they did, what would it be that they wanted them for? Not a nice thought.
---Xanthi on 10/3/05

Steve you do have some strange views.
I know I was pat my peak at age 60 ... and still more so, now
Some women will go for earnings (We call them golddiggers) but most - the worthwhile ones, who will not desert yuo - do not
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/3/05

So acording to steve a kid out of college with a degree is more desirerable then a guy who has spent his life doing some thing he loves and never got rich?[my daughters boyfriend studied computer $$$] I would rather have some one CONTENT with a good life behind him. who was not in love with money!
---Laure5469 on 10/2/05

Steve that is just your opinion, I have never heard it said that a man's peak is based on his earning power. On what is a woman's peak based then, in your opinion that is?
---M.A. on 10/1/05

, M.A., men are not past their peak until sixty. this is because men's peak is based on earning power. it is normal for men to be older than their wives.
---steve on 10/1/05

Steve if you want a woman who is 'not yet past her peak' why have you left it until you are 'past your peak' to try and find someone? I think your opinion of when women 'peak' is not when many of us would say is the case but you have decided this and have created a problem for yourself.
---M.A. on 9/27/05

Why worry, when you can pray :)
---Ulrika on 9/26/05

Steve ... you say women tell you you are too old.
That is because you want someone so much younger than yourself.

go for someone yuor own age ... you might have more success then!
---rself.alan8869_of_UK on 9/26/05

Steve: wrong ,Most women dont want mature men? I speak for myself as a woman,maybe others too,I doo.. want a mature man and I figured that out when Ise around 20,it hasn't changed 9 yrs down the road now.
---Mimi on 9/26/05

It takes 2 mature, comitted people to make a marriage work.

Steve: I have to disagree with you. I don't think I have to marry young or otherwise women will not like me. I think that I will meet the right person when the time is right! I am a good, working and honest man, so I don't see why a woman will not want to be with me, even if I am 35, 45 or 50 years old. I see a lot of negativity in your comments and that is OK! But I am a very positive person, so I must say: "the things that you see, are not the things that I see."
---Alex on 9/19/05

, personally, i think whether people stay together is not a matter of age, but of who the people are, and if they are committed to each other, or should "both be committed".
---steve on 9/19/05

do not rush into marrage. I was 20 when I married and it didn't last, I was not grown up yet. my parents married in late 30's and are still married 42 years later. I think God will bring someone to you when the time is right.
---Laure5469 on 9/19/05

, alex, find a wife quickly, because most women don't want a mature man. yet they often think of themselves as young even when they themselves are old.

Hi.. I am a guy and I am 33 as well! And sometimes I feel the same (due to the fact that I am still single). But I do believe that God has a wonderful person for me, even though it seems that it is gonna take forever for me to find her.

I know that I am still young, but sometimes is not that easy.. specially when everybody around you has someone.
---Alex on 9/13/05

, well, i am in my forties, and all the women tell me i am too old now, so what am i to make of that?
---steve on 9/12/05

, i could say all evidence shows men peaking at a hundred, but that won't change reality. also, women peak at twenty, that's not an opinion, it's just common sense.
---steve on 9/12/05

Never worry and you will never peak until you think about it 20 years afterward.

Those polls are for somebody else not for God's wonderful creation of YOU.

No, there's no need to worry. I have a very close friend who didn't marry until she was 38 (her husband was 40 at the time and it was a first marriage for them both). Now they have two wonderful sons and are extremely happy. I'm 31 and see it this way: this is part of God's way of being sure that, when I do marry, it's to the man He's chosen for me and will last forever as marriage should.
---Heather on 9/10/05

Steve: She came up with it because that is what all the research says. Women peak at 40.
---Madison on 9/10/05

, nvbarb, how on earth do you come up with peaking at forty? name one athlete at her best at forty. name one young man who prefers his dates that age instead of twenty five. you can't change reality just because you are older.
---steve on 9/10/05

I beg to differ Steve. Women are at their peak around 40! Emotionally, physically (if they're healthy)spiritually, and sexually.
Since you have no experience in these matters, other than the fact that YOU feel spent at 40, you don't have a leg to stand on!

, yes. men are very aware of how invisible they become when they turn forty, and women become even more invisible at that age. don't make the mistake too many make, of waiting too long, but also don't marry a wrong guy.

Age only tells how long a car has been on the road not how far it has travelled.
You need to worry only if the
"oil of ol' lady" feels like sandpaper.

Rica, I am 59 years old and wish I was 33. you have your whole life ahead of you. now if you were 80 I would worry cause not many man at that age. Just live your life conformed to God and things will fall into place. Faith that God already has a purpose for you and you will please Him. Don't look at life with your eyes but with God's. Have fun in life and enjoy because time goes by so fast. You are so lucky you were single that all and got to do so much others never did because they got married young.

No need to worry, God knows your desire to have a family and in his timing it will happen. I was 37 when i finally met my husband, it definitely worth waiting on God.
---Stephanie on 8/16/05

I would not worry. I am a single mother of four and I wish I would have waited for God's best. He turned my pain into blessings but yet if I would have been patient and waited for God's best I could have avoided a lot of unneccassary pain. So please wait. Now I have to do this on my own and pray that God will bless me with a husband that will accept my children as if it was his own flesh. Be patient occupy your time with him and when he bless you it will be perfect. God Bless you
---Latrice on 8/16/05

I'm 55 and have a daughter 15. I wouldn't worry, at all, if I were you. It may be a big plus that you're a little older when you have children.
---Greg on 8/16/05

No, no need to worry. My mom was in her late 40's when she had me and she is a GREAT mom! My dad was in his late 50's!!!He died 14 yrs ago, and I miss him a lot, but he also was a great parent.

You have God's permission to worry but it will get you places just like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do. Worrying is the devils way of keeping you from doing the things you need and want to do with God's time.
Make yourself into the best you can be and prepare for the future with or without a mate. Be active, Be enthusiastic,let you light shine-you have no time for worry
---chuck on 8/16/05

Why would you worry? The Lord tells us to take no thought for such things.. when He wants you to have a wife, you will not be able to get away from her, and if not, no one you find will satisfy you. Either way, the time is short befor we are all called home.
---Ron on 8/16/05

Dear realy you are wonderful,don't be panic.Our calling is not to have kids but glorifing the living God.
God bless you.
---Solomon_Asfaw on 8/16/05

Worry? NO, why rush into being married. It is nice to have someone to come home to, but make sure they are also a good friend as well. To often people marry some one over looks or feelings, but are not really friends. Don't rush into marriage, usually ends in divorce, and/or unhappy.
