The usual trend I''ve seen among university/college students is that (keep in mind, I'm talking about the girls) they're aiming to get marry, if they even talk about that, after knowing that they are secure and successful enough in their job. I usually ask them what's their definition of secure and successful.
The usual answer is "Having my own house/ car or have significantly supported my parents,"
And being me, I sometimes had blurted out
"Unless you're making big money, that will mean a long wait before you settle down,"
And that, apparently came out as an insult more often than not.
But its a bit different from my course-mates, well the ones I'm nice with. They don't set certain goals or a certain age. In fact, most of them (pervy lil kids) wants to be marry off asap. Okay, just kidding. Not asap. But, perhaps in the next 4 years with us being 21 now.

"Hanis, are you crazy?"
"Are you're going to throw your studies away?"
"What's the matter with you???"
Geez gollywhizz people. Its not happening tommmmorow. Or even next month. I'm still looking for the future daddy, remember? Marky Mark AND Hugh Jackman is unavailable, sadly.
I've forgotten the point of this post. Again. But I know it has something to do with different ways of looking at a situation. Or something. SO what do you think of my post? Am I crazy for already having a list of names for my 4 kids (2 of each) or is this just normal?
P/S: I get dibs on Alexandria, one of my future lil girls would be named that and called Xandria. Wooohooo.
