You know what happens when boys and girls get married? The boy can't handle responsibilities and the girl can't run the home.
The boy may be 35 and the girl may be 30. It doesn't matter, age is not what determines maturity.
The boy is super lazy, has no job and prefers to snore in front of the TV set 24/7. The girl doesn't know how to cook, hates house chores and prefers to gossip with neighbours all day.
The boy can't think without seeing papa first and the girl cries over very minor argument in the home.
The boy doesn't know how to pay bills and the girl knows nothing about raising a child. She prefers to wear a tiny singlet for her 3 months baby on a bone chilling harmattan morning!
The boy beats his wife over a  minor offence and the girl always run back to her momma each time there is a misunderstanding between her and her husband. They had to call a family meeting with the village head in attendance!
Marriage is not for boys and girls, you've heard that a million times. What makes you mature is not your age but acceptance of responsibility. If you can't make anything sane out of your life as a single person, you won't amount to anything after getting married.
Grow up before chasing ladies all over the street. Learn to be a man. Pay your bills, be committed to your job, learn how to treat women with dignity.
If you always run away from chores a single lady, you are not ready for marriage. How on earth can you be a typical Igbo woman and not know how to prepare igbo soup? or you are a Yoruba woman and you don't know to cook "Efo Riro"? And you don't even want to learn from anybody. You hate washing plates, sweeping the floor and keeping your house clean and you wanna get married, to whom? A chimpanzee?
I see too many boys and girls heading for the altar and I pity their future. Marriage is not a game. It is not a joke. It is not for boys and girls. Grow up first and make something sensible out of your life before rushing to the altar. You will be glad you did. 
Thanks for reading. God bless you. Cheers!
