The guys I knew from high school decades ago are single

After reading those relationship related threads in here lately, it got me into thinking how many people here are married? Maybe you could shed some light for me.

The Somali dudes that I regularly see in jumah and knew from high school are now on their late 20s to mid 30s and are still single, they work so I assume they're already financially established.

I know the fact that parents, grandparents and so on married at young age back then so can someone tell me why are so many millenial muslims today are single in their 30s and onward? I used to think it was easy to get married because parents would just pick a wife for you back home and bring them here for you to marry.

It's just feel weird seeing single grown ups talking and behaving the same way as they do in their younger years (like me :()

No commitment? depression? can't afford the high cost of living? fear of raising a family in a western environment?

I'm in my early 20s and I ain't planning on marrying until the age of 30+ inshallah. I wanna grow as a person then later make life changing decisions.

That’s not healthy though. it usually leads to 1 of 2 things and neither of them good, just saying

Don’t screw the maahmaah. It’s, “why buy the cow when all her products (milk, meat and skin) are free”. How many times did you get married? Don’t let Dabcaseyr be the Somali champion.

I am ayeeyo i have earned the right to screw up maahmaahs lol
