Do you have a plan when you will decide to get married? In the past I decided to get married later. I think later is better. Then at least at that time I would be mature. Finally I was married when I was 28.

I think it just depends on the individual person. If you don't want to get married until later, then of course I think you shouldn't rush into it, but I also think it is ok to get married earlier if that is what is right for you. I recently got married, and I'm 22. A lot of people think that I'm very young to be married, but I have never been happier in my life, and I am absolutely head over heels in love with my husband. I didn't plan to necessarily get maried this early, but when I was dating my husband and realized I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him, I just didn't see the reason to wait any longer since we're financially stable and both felt ready for the next step, so I really just think it depends on the individual. I know a friend of my mom's who recently got married and she's 65 and it's her first marriage! Then again, my great aunt and uncle got married as teenagers and now they've been happily married for over 70 years! :) I think people should just get married when they feel it is right for them personally, whether that's earlier or later.

I have the plan to get married at 27 years old.I think this age is good for me,because I am enough mature at that time,and at the aspect of economic,we can afford.

I was married when I was 23 years old last year. I decided to get married early because I love him so much and to start a new beginning of life as a couple. And we are financially stable what we waiting for. I'm a mature girl I know how to become a good mother and wife.

I only answered your question because you said later is better. I don't agree. I think everyone is ready at their own time, wether they are 18 or 80. Getting married is a lifetime commitment, and it isn't always easy. Some people are prepared for it younger then others, and i don't think there is a right or wrong answer to this question. I got married at 18, and had my twin sons at almost 21 and just celebrated having my 3rd and last child last month, along with celebrating 5 years of marriage in February. For me things are great but i worked hard to keep it this way. As for some of my friends who are my age, they are no where near ready! So i guess it depends on the people involved as to what they decide is best for them.

My question doesn't have a right or wrong answer. Everyone can share his/her opinion. To me, I prefer to get married later. Maybe I need longer time to find the right one than others:) Best wishes to your family.

Age is really not a factor for me. I just turned 22 and I'm also currently in a relationship of 5 years. I know him well enough and would marry him in a heartbeat, but we both know that practicality-wise, we won't survive marriage -- or at least not smoothly. Until we're both stable in all aspects, financially being number 1 in that list, then I guess we'd just have to wait. Who knows, I might win the lottery tomorrow and get married then! lol. :D

Wish you can win the lottery sooner or later, but sooner is better:)

Yes, I agree with you. I feel 25 or above may be the right age to get married. Because sometimes people get married too early and end up marrying the wrong person and then regret their decision. I think most people reach their mental maturity around about the age of 25 and have the mental capacity to deal with a relationship like marriage and are ready to face the responsibilities that come along with marriage, family and kids.

I agree with you. We do need longer time to select the right one.

Hello there! I am Angel from the Philippines and I got married on my twentieth birthday. I know it is a very young age to get married. My husband and I moved in when I was nineteen and he was twenty-four then. After nine months, we got married. I guess it just depends upon a person's maturity an dthe situation that the couple is in.
