Oh, that's what I remember (the not being married by 30 comment.) I don't look at 27 as young to get married at all, but I guess it does depend on the area. And if that was her attitude (marry a guy off the street at 30!) I personally don't see much to envy in her.
If 27 is young for your area, then you have lots of time!
Get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. -Muhammad Ali
