It depend on where you live.In my country,Turkey,20-25 age is ideal for girls and 23-28 is ideal for boys.I am now 29 and still single.It completely depends on your conditions.I am still economically dependent on my family.I can't stand my own feet.So,it is not the true time to marry for me.I feel so early to take responsibilites for love. If you look at villages or where the people have rural life,this number is lowered to 16-20 ages.

I dont think there is a better, best or worst age of marriage, The key is to find the right person, When you find, You can marry him/her when you want.. So the main Point is to Find the right Girl/Boy.

It is not the "age" that matters. It is the maturity of the Couple involved. Do you have a career, Home and Car. Money saved for the Future Children, Do you want Children, Age is not the issue, It is the Question of are mentelly, physically and emotionally ready for a life time commitment. Think before you Leap.

i agree with you, the main point is to find the right parner, if not, that person always will fail in their relationships ;) but i don't agree in relation of childrens, i think that the main principal point is not the future of they, is the love of your parents... because i can save the future of my family for 3 or 4 generations, but if i can't to find the really love, i will never make a family ;), and i can make a family with love, and go saving their future in the time, with my partner

I feel one should get married for the right reasons and the right age depends on many factors. There was a time when child marriages were common. Now legal age to get married is 18 for girls and 21 for boys. I feel that 25 to 30 years is the best time for girls to get married esp. since reproduction or giving birth to child is easier and it's best to avoid complications later in life. While men should get married by 35 if he wants to start a family so that he can support the kids to become good citizens in future. But if you don't want kids then it depends on when you are ready to make the commitment.

wow, in my country the legal age for get married is 18 for girls and boys... but, i don't agree with you, i think that a relationship must be on peoples that have the same years old, not more than 2 years of difference

Are you trying to say two people should be the same age to get married? If so i highly disagree with you.. I think two people any age as long as they are in love with each other and want to get married should.. I don't think age should be a problem with that. To say i am 28 years old i fall in love with a 41 year old man and he does the same to me and wants to get married i would for sure say yes.. Why might you ask because i would want to be with this person not just because he's much older than me just because i would love to be with him and love him for who he is not just a number..

Personally, I feel the best age for getting married for Men is above 28 and for the Women , it is above 21. These are the ages, above which, I believe Men and women have the sufficient Maturity to handle the family life and face all the problems and struggles that may come in the married life. I dont mean, married life is a problem. But if it comes,then the people should have enough maturity to properly handle them.

not forever, the madurity is not in direct relation with the ages of peoples, is in relation with their lives... but i agree with you in the point of madurity, the married must be formed by two people with the sufficient madurity to face the problems, to struggles that may come in the married life and to handle the family life as you say ;)

it's really up to you. if you think that you're ready enough to have your own family and was able to meet your goal/s in life then go for it. for me age is not the basis to settle down.

My husband and I got married at 42 years of age. He had finished with the military. I had finished with BS degree and MS degree and decided against PH.D. degree plus I had worked many years in different places. You get married when you're ready to settle down and not before. If you want to start an independent life, then you do it. Getting married, that may be independent in your country but college, military, or job and living on your own are independence here. I did 3 out of 4 and my husband did the other one. Now we both have jobs. Become your own person, develop your own interests and abilities. Otherwise, if you get married before you are a fully developed person, how do you know who and what you want? Age has less to do with it than being ready and being experienced in life. Some people are ready in their 20s, some 30s, some 40s, I had a cousin who got married in his 50s for the first time. Be what you want first. Find someone who respects that and loves you for who you really are. If you marry before you become the person you will be, then you may decide later, you don't want the other person. Of course, I live in the USA where 50% of marriages end in divorce and maybe things are different where you live.

I think aging more than 22 is the best age for getting married. because I'm sure at least we've got a job in that age so that we can run our life

The right age for female is 23-24 yrs and for male is 26-28yrs... Well somebody can only marry when he/she finds a right person and that doesn't depends on age....

Hello, orfeo1!:-) I think it depends on person to person and on individual preferences. I think that one should marry as soon as he/she feels that it's the right time to get into marriage which can vary for different people even in the same family. One should be aware of the responsibilities that may come in the way ahead and should be prepared to tackle them properly. Physical and mental maturity are the very basic requirements and whenever one feels that he/she has both of them they should get married because it provides a beautiful relationship. I personally think that had I met my wife earlier, I would have married her even at the age of 18. I understand, however, that this age may vary for different people. I actually married at the age of 26 and I think I was late. At the end it's again choice of every individual and no general rule can be made as such.

I dont advice you to get married at such a young age as im also 20 and think that the optimum age to tie the knot is around 27 or 28. Enjoy life my friend. Why are you in a hurry in shouldering responsibilities at such a young age?

hmm i think, 25 years old is the best age to get married because i think in that age you are responsible enough to handle anything but make you sure that you have work already!
