Soham Shah said...

Aahhh!!..Tht's a bit harsh...I got married at 24 and half!!!

Deepali said...

Ah not bad - haha that definitely would be the correct age range for when both would be at the same mental maturity level.

APOO said...

I am fine with the girls being 18. But am sure all girls will object with the guys being 37.

BTW, nice pic! Are you 18?

Crimson Feet said...

Aristotle was probably subtly defending his marriage to an 18 yr old, while he was 37, under the garb of political lectures...

Moreover, he had studied and enhanced almost all subjects/fields of knowledge present during his times. now i am sure he thought this was more important than marriage. and i guess it takes some time (20 odd years :)). Now sounding like an MCP that he was, if women are to marry at 18, it seems they don't really need to gain any knowledge according to him!!

knowledge is endless, so i agree with him and would like to take it one step further.

"There is no appropriate age for marriage in men and women."

...lets just stay in school and make out baby ;)

Crimson Feet said...

and you are looking sooo pretty!!... come back to india soon and i promise i'll sweep you off your feet! ;)

Keshi said...

Was Aristotle on drugs when he said that?

LOL Nirmal yes I want someone older than 37 for sure!

Keshi.

@ Nirmal,

Realllllllllly? What about girls who are 18? Do they like 18 year old boys?

Solitaire said...

@ Veens,

What is that supposed to mean?

Solitaire said...

@ Alok,

What's soooooooo funny?

Solitaire said...

@ Hiren,

When in doubt, find the average!

Solitaire said...

@ Busy Writer,

What's soooo funny???????

Solitaire said...

@ Anjuli,

Hahah!! Kyon? Bechara!

Solitaire said...

@ Soham,

Go yell at Aristotle!! Maybe he thinks you married too early, and your wife too late. Dunno what he is going to say about me!

Solitaire said...

@ Deepali,

My first thoughts too!

Solitaire said...

@ Apoo,


Hahah! Do you think I am 18? Thanks for the compliment!

Neeku said...

Pretty Pretty picture :D

Pavi!!!! said...

OMG!Aristotle..must hv been drunk!

I wld love to say age doesnt matter for marrg..but it kinda does in reality.

18 is too young for a gurl and 37 is too old for a guy!

A said...

did he consult floyd for this flawed observation?

Solitaire said...

@ Crimson,

Hahah!! After all that analysis, the last statement was the best!

Thanks for your compliment. Sadly, me not coming to India any time soon!

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

Are you serious? How old do you want your guy to be?

Solitaire said...

@ Neeku,

Thanks dear!! After all, I am only 18. :p

Solitaire said...

@ Pavi,

You really think age matters in a marriage? How so? I understand that people should not marry until they are mature but is there a ceiling too in your mind?

Solitaire said...

@ A,

Now pardon my ignorance..but who is Floyd?

how can an 18 yr old gal marry a 37 yr old one and live happily ever after?

The Gamer said...

I wish my dream man comes to life someday..agar abhi aa gaya toh meri shaadi pakki , abhi ke abhi. agar vo sapno se haqeeqat mein nahi badalta toh merko shaadi nahi karni.

Solitaire said...

@ Tq,

Then you should be married for 20 years by now.

Solitaire said...

@ Carolinagal,

Aristotle is in trouble!

Solitaire said...

@ Pavi,

Meet me on YIM. Wanna talk to you about something else anyway.

Solitaire said...

@ The Keeper,

:)

Solitaire said...

@ Samby,

Haan cos you are 17 years away from the "ideal" age.

Solitaire said...

@ Ria,

Hahah! I hope no 37 year old man is reading this cos they are going to start feeling "old" even if they are not! And 18...I do know of a few girls who have been married at 18. And as for your age to get married, I am sure parents start pestering after a certain age, whether you like it or not!

Solitaire said...

@ Invincible,

:)

Solitaire said...

@ The Gamer,

Is your dream man 37?

Solitaire said...

@ Satish Bolla,

Maybe they can. Someone here should volunteer to try and let us know.

Solitaire said...

@ Sougata,

Hahah! Good one Socrates.

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Solitaire said...

@ Elusive,

Alok said...

Men reach their sexual peak around 18 and women reach theirs around 37. :D
