I didn't marry until [quite late / I was fairly old compared to the age at which most people marry].

It's said about news that you hear which is shocking.

You find out that your best friend has been arrested for robbing a bank. That (news) comes (to you) as a shock.

You find out that your sister has cancer. That (news) comes (to you) as a shock.

You find out that you have won the Nobel Prize. That (news) comes (to you) as a shock.
