Growing up, we have this idea about what our future will look like, and a lot of people set expectations for big life events to happen by a certain age. A new survey reveals what most people feel is the "right" age for big life milestones, like getting married, having a kid, etc...
According to a survey by H&R Block, the average ages people expect certain huge milestones to be reached, include:
- Get married – 26
- Start a family – 27
- Buy a home – 29
- Expand family – 30
- Reach financial independence – 32
- Build a forever home – 37
- Feel the most content – 38
- Retire - 63
If you haven’t 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 these milestones by these ideal ages.
