As a woman in her 20s, I am entering the phase where people from my graduating class get engaged. 

It can be a bit daunting when you see those first few social media posts of the girl you used to share candy with in elementary school, flashing her diamond ring and holding hands with a fiancé you’ve never met.

In the digital age, it’s hard to run from the sudden influx of engagement announcements that come out when you’re in your 20s and 30s, and it can get really stressful to see, especially if your love life hasn’t been something out of a movie lately.

But you know what? Something important to keep in mind is that there is no reason for you to feel like you have to hurry up and get engaged. You shouldn’t worry about what your peers are doing and focus on yourself. 

However, if the engagement pressure is still getting to you, here are a few reasons why you should wait to get engaged.

Weddings are expensive

If you’re someone who isn’t interested in a traditional wedding, this reason may not seem very important to you.

However, many people out there don’t want to get married without a beautiful ceremony and exciting wedding reception in their venue of choice. If you ignore that want and get married without your ideal wedding, you may live to regret skipping it.

But here’s the thing–  weddings can be extremely expensive and add up. That’s why it’s a good idea to start slowly discussing marriage and saving your pennies for a few years before agreeing to tie the knot.
