I agree with everyone else on the point that there is no “maximum age” (nor should there be). Of course, I’m one of those people who thinks that most of the age-limits people draw for themselves (and others) are arbitrary (note: some of these restrictions are valid, IMO, such as the line where one becomes “too old to have sex with a 14-year old”, but that’s another thread).
Sure, if you’re 107 it may be a little difficult for you to get through a kickboxing class, but:
a) I’m 32 and it would probably kill me to get through a kickboxing class, and
b) how will you know until you try (and you’re never too old to try…)?
But I digress.
Is your SO trying to convince you that one or both of you is/are “too old” to get married? Sounds to me like he’s just skeptical about marriage, which is a whole different issue.
And speaking of different issues, have you really wanted to get married since you were a little girl? Or have you just wanted a wedding since you were a little girl? My guess is that most little girls aren’t running around thinking about 7% mortgage loans and joint tax returns and having a partner nurse her through a bout of shingles…
Maybe you were different.
I’m not saying there’s anything WRONG with dreaming of a wedding as a kid. I’m all for ceremony, and am all for celebration (especially if there is GOOD FOOD). But now that you’re an adult, you might ask yourself WHAT it is about getting married that’s important to you. Then ask yourself what’s important to you about the relationship as it is now.
If the “Marriage” list is longer than the “Relationship Now” list, well… sounds like it’s time for a LONG TALK.
