i really dont see the connection with age and getting married. some friends would say that one should get married when you are at the age of 25 or so but what if your not yet ready for that big commitment-financially, psychologically, mentally, spiritually and physically. would you still get married? your views are highly welcome... cheers!!!

I would never think of getting married. I do respect family values, but as you said you need to be very well prepared for such a step.

Because my parents divorced ,one of my uncles did it twice and so did his mother.I've seen what marriage can do to some people.I know there are good ones too ,but I haven't yet seen any. Plus I'm still kind of young :)

I dont think there needs to be a connection with age. You should get married when you feel your ready. Some people might get married in their early 20's and be ready for it. And i know some people arent ready in their 30's. I would never get married until i was ready. Im already married though. But i was completely ready for it in all aspects.

i'm with you in that point. your readiness is what matters. if your not ready then why marry, ayt?

you are absolutely correct. Age is not the only matter to get married. I do not think it is right to marry unless you are ready for it mentally, financially etc.still most people , mainly parents see as the age increases taht you should get married at any cost, but they never think that it can land their children in great crisis in later part of life.

your very correct there.. i just wish parents won't push their children to get marry. their children know what is best for them, right?

Marriage is about being mature enough, not about being young. A person can say she/he is ready, when he/she feels emotionally secure, when they can tell they found the person they can work out with. It does not have to be rushed and be done by some age.

I would say: Get married if you want to get married and when you want to get married, no pressure. I know some people in their 40's who's still not emotionally ready to get married and I know people who's 18 that shows all the signs of maturity and piece of mind. I think it's not an age thing, and I would never get married unless I am 100% sure it will make me 100% happy and that it was with the right person.

age doesn't matter as long as your ready for a big commitment and you think he/she is the right one for you. and also being mature in both couples is also a must when getting married
