Getting married takes a lot of responsibilities. The right time would depend on the following: 1) You must be financially ready. 2) You must be emotionally mature. 3) You must be spiritually mature. 4) Ready to take on the responsibilities of being parents. 5) Ready to give up your single life. There are a lot of things you must give up when you are married. And there are certain things you can no longer do when you are married. 6) Do your homework about the guy. He is the type you would want to spend the rest of your life with. Is he the responsible kind of guy and does not play around. 7) Other stuff. Like are you compatible, is he the jealous type, is he a good father material. etc...

Yeah you should list it down. Whenever you do decide to get married please first attend a seminar then decide to push thru or not with the wedding. Some couples plan their wedding before attending a seminar which is pretty much illogical. The wedding itself is easy. Its the married life that will take a lot of work. And another think, make sure you are in good terms with the in-laws and love them as your own. This is a source of a lot of fights in the future. If there is no love for them (the in-laws) this would be a major headache in the future.

you should settle down whenever you feel comfortable doing so. i for example am only twenty, but i am engaged, have a daughter, and will be getting married before too long. when you want to get married is up too you. when you are ready go for it. no one can tell you when you should or shouldn't get married

For men, between 25 to 28 is the best time and for women, it is between 22 to 25 years is the best period to get married. One can marry at a later age also, but the intensity varies - becomes lesser and lesser.

in my opinion,if boy and girl love each other ,and their parents agree with them,they should get married.in my country,26-30 are common ages to get married.

i'm 24 and my partner asked me to get married by next year. i said no. why? i'm not ready - emotionaly, and most especially financially. i dun think there's actually a "right time" to get married. c'mon, you're still 21, enjoy life as it is - go out with friends, flirt endlessly, be competive. you won't be able to explore so much when you're settled down. well, at least these are my reasons.
