We are in modern times and while this analogy is usually used for the wrong reasons but the advent of technology is probably the best example of the good part.
Actor Mona Jaswir Singh got married to Shyam Gopalan in December last year at the age of 39. Having gotten married at this age, she opened up on the same to Times of India, she said, “We are living in a new world where there is no age to get married. I was in no rush. I feel this was the best age for me to get married because a person is more evolved, experienced and has seen his/her share of ups and downs, and you know that this (marriage) is important and this should stay. You get married now because you want to and because you think it is time to get married.”
When asked about the biological clock ticking, she said, “I have frozen my eggs and now I am free. I did that at the age of 34. Because I have gotten married now, I want to chill with my partner and travel the world with him. I haven’t done that yet. I have always travelled with my family or friends. I want to do that with my husband now and it is a different feeling now -- going for walks, getting all the attention, keeping Karwa Chauth vrat – all this is so nice. Even though I love kids, if you ask me now, I am not mentally prepared to have one. Later in life, I would definitely think about it."
Indeed a novel and modern way to look at it.
