If you’re not married at 26, then you may want to stop reading.
H&R Block did a survey to determine the “right” ages to reach significant life milestones, and I can assure you I’m way behind on all of them.
A lot of people set expectations for big life events to happen by a certain age and we all know that it isn’t likely going to happen, however, this survey is what the majority of people “think” the milestones should be.
Getting Married – 26
Start a family – 27
Buy a home – 29
Have a second child – 30
Reach financial independence – 32
Build a forever home – 37
Retire – 63
Now if you haven’t even come close to reaching these milestones by that age, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. The survey notes that 49% of respondents say their financial issues have kept them from reaching the milestones by the ideal ages.
