you know, I swear people are just getting more and more nitpicky about certain phrases and their meanings. “Settling down” has always referred to getting married and having children. That’s it.

I do agree, however, that marriage, heck a relationship! shouldn’t be the death of your youth and individuality.

Getting married is an individual choice, if you choose something willingly it’s not the death of anything. Just my 2c.

@wubewe:  I thought it was quite interesting but way oversimplified… 

There are 20 years between getting married at 20 and being alone at 40, and althought many people get married young and are very happy an overwhelming majority gets a divorce amongst other things. 

It’s like having a child very young, sometimes it works out but more often than not it has negative consequences. But between that and ending up hiring a surrogate at 45 there is a happy medium like in marriage.
