what age do you think is the best age to get married? I'm 27 this year, but I haven't got a boyfriend since I broke up with my college boyfriend after we graduated last year. My parents are worried about my marriage a lot, but I still couldn't find the ONE who is waiting for me, when did you get married or plan to marry? Many friends of mine have got married.

Hi maggiesunjuan, In my opinion the best age for marriage for girls is between 22 and 24.Of course it is circumstancial.Since you had a already had a boyfriend in your life, you are not able to see a good person in any otherman. But how long you are going to be like that. Life is always filled with ups and downs and one should not be feeling low always. It is also your responsiblity to respect and satisfy your parents. If you remove your old boyfriend out of your mind, you can see another good man for your life. So, without wasting much time please ensure that you get married and start your own life. Good Luck.

For me, it's 23 and above. But mostly age doesn't really matter. As long as you're already allowed and are stable financially. You have everything in your life under control and think you can add another responsibility, then go get married. But you also have to take into consideration who you're going to marry. I can wait forever till that person comes. Because you just feel it. You just feel who you're going to marry, it's not something to be rushed. They'll just appear one day. Or maybe they're there already right in front of your very eyes and you just don't notice them.

I believe you decide the age yourself. However 20+ is good. I'm nineteen and have been engaged for almost a year now and i'm still not ready to settle down! You have to ask yourself who the guy would be for you. Not your parents. Assure them that you are still wanting to get married. But that you want someone you see spending your whole life with. Not just someone to be married to for a fashion trend. I'm sure your parents will understand. Or maybe they just really want a grandchild! Most parents want that for their children of which they had when they were your age. But everyone is different. Enjoy life as it comes to you and one day prince charming will sweep you off your feet!

No matter how old are you, if you are able to afford your family, feed your children and you really find the one you love and love you, it is the time to go to church for your marriage. That means the right man and the right time we meet and go to marrige.

I have the similar situation with u, get married when you are ready, now i am 24, I don't think i am mature enough to have the marriage, meanwhile i think the marriage must base on love, without love, without marriage.

I do not think there is best age of marriage. One should marry when he/she thinks is ready to settle down. One should finfd the true love before marrying. Don't get pressurizede by the fact that many friends have got married. May be they found the right person. Parents get tensed, but everything would happen in time.

I personally believe there's no certain age that makes you ready for marriage. Before a couple decides to get married they have to take into consideration all the things they will be sharing as a couple. The two people who are marrying also have to be ready to commit to each other and only each other and be ready to give up old habits. Only after this do I believe a couple is ready for marriage. Marriage is a big step and is suppose to be that one special thing in life everyone strides to do but so many people get married to soon which ends in divorce.

I personally think 90 is the best age then you will have someone to hold your hand when you are dying. Seriously, there is no "best age", there is only the right person. If you marry the right person then age does not really matter. How do you know it is the right person? I don't know. I think that is the bit that takes maturity and maturity has very little to do with age.

For me there is not a best age to marry. Before marry, you should find someone that loves you and that you love. Only in this way could be a best marriage.
