Pronunciation: MARY-tu-rent


Directly from Latin.

Why this word?

Some stages in life are natural to the extent of being inevitable. In our early teens we experience our first puppy love, in our later teens we begin experiencing. In our early twenties we learn what love really is, and yes- probably get hurt. In our later twenties, we put everything we have thus far learned into practice, we know what we are looking for, we know what we will surely stay away of. Some of us find it while others take longer…

Mariturient is the exact word to describe those who take longer, but also take longing to a farther extent. When most of your surrounding is coupled, happy and is not afraid to show it, you may find yourself asking why am I not? The truth is that it doesn’t matter. You are whoever you are, and what needs to happen to you- will happen in the right time.

When a desire is too strong, it tends to become blinding and all consuming. The right choice of partners doesn’t seem to be as important anymore, as long as there is a partner. And this, in too many occasions, turn out being that individual’s biggest mistake. Perhaps knowing this word will prevent some from this mistake…

How to use the word mariturient in a sentence?
