Marriage, a beautiful word which terms the union of two souls. Every person is destined to one. India, a country with diverse culture is known for its colorful weddings. But that is not the story. Our grandparents got married at a pretty early age, maybe before 20. Then comes our parents. These people are a bit educated and more exposure. So when did these people decided to get married? This is a time where social stigma for marriage age was glamourized, coated and held in high esteem. So let us consider their marriage age not greater than 22. Now comes the super genius millennials. These are crazy people who want the break the glamorous, coated, high-esteemed “social stigma”. These guys will never listen to anyone. They want to achieve high standards in life. This is a generation in which long-dead Bob Marley and Che Guevara became iconic and the cult following started. So what is wrong with these millennials? Nothing. There is something very right. Millennials put forth career in-front of marriage. Marriage was considered final. This is not just that career is utmost important but also, meet an opposite gender and going out as much easier than our previous generations. Hence, they required some time to complete the “career cum dating” phase of their lives. So when do these people marry? I’d say 30. Yes, you read that right. The avg. age today has significantly dropped. What did it cause? Delayed pregnancy. Yes, infertility is on the rise as the normal reproductive cycle is disturbed. Late marriage not only affects female but also male but not to the extent it affects the female. In India, in a highly developed city like Mumbai, the western influence of marriage is very high. Even though marriage is early, the concept of a child has to wait.

Both the partners, mostly working, thrive to achieve a certain level of success in their career. In some cases, it could deviate drastically and be called as “exploring life”. This exploring life is nothing but knowing but each other, knowing about themselves and their life together. What may ever we call it as the concept of postponed parenthood is definitely going to be difficult for most of the couples who discover infertility or inability to conceive due to age. A fertility clinic in Mumbai is a counseling place for most of the couples. People only visit after they discover their inability. But it is always advisable to consult a fertility expert at your nearby fertility center in Mumbai if you are in the city. Pre-pregnancy counseling is a rising concept in maternity hospital to educate and create awareness among young couples post or even sometime before marriage.
