I am currently age 29. Am I getting late to get married? What is the ideal age for getting married. I am planning to get married within one year. Am I late if I wait for one year?

You are never to old to get married. The ideal time to get married is when you met the man that is your soul mate. The man you are ment to marry. Don't just get married because you have a time line or think you need too because you are getting to old.

I guess I should have paid better attention or wrote the ideal time to get married is when you meet the person who is your soul mate. The person who you are supposed to marry. I am sorry. I guess I just answered it for a lady because I wasn't expecting a man to ask this question. So sorry.

Depends on what you want to do. I don't think you're late. You can still have kids if you want them. I didn't get married until 42, that would have been too late for me to have kids. But we're happy without them. Probably happier. Take care

Thanks for the tips. I think it is good to get married and to have a good family life.

There is no set age for a person to get married. I have seen many people over 30, 40 and 50 that got married for the first time. The oldest I have seen was a family friend at the age of 79 who got married. You will know when it is time for you to get married. You say you plan to get married within a year. If the relationship isn't going that way then don't do it. Be patient and know that the person you are going to marry is the love of your life.

I also think there is no age for getting married and now a days most people marry at young age and also at different age or otherwise at different ages.

The ideal for me is 25 as long as both parties is stable. The earlier the better!LOL! But, I got married at the age of 30 and I have no regret since I enjoy my single like to the max..But if I was ready earlier, I would prefer to settle down at a young age!

I also think it is good to settle down at an earlier age in life.

Getting married  - getting married is one of the important things that we need to think about because a right choice is necessary.
Hello dear ajithlal. I don't think that it is late to get married at the age of 29. Nowadays many people get married after they reach thirty because young people today would rather spend more time and energy on their career than consider their marriage at an earlier time. I also got married in my late twenties though many of my classmates got married earlier than me.

29/30 is not old or late for marriage. It is better to be late in marriage and find the right partner, than ending up with someone you have to live with because you are married. I married when I was 33 and have a perfectly happy marriage. In fact as we grow older, we become more understanding towards life. We have long since removed the rose coloured glasses of life and see it in its true colours. It is then that maturity sets in and we have a truely happy married life. Take your time and marry. Dont go by the does and donts of society. Find your soul mate and dont go for looks, go for a person who is understanding and will keep you happy. All the best dear and God bless.

I think it is totally up to you to decide when and if you ever get married. I really don't think there is a time frame for it. It is up to you to decide when the time is right. I don't think it is ever too late if the timing is right for you. Good luck on your upcoming marriage. Best wishes with it.

Is there a certain age to get married? No one should marry until they are ready. My husband works with a guy who just got married this pass weekend. He is 63 and its his first marriage. He does have a son but was never married. So theres no set age to get married. You should live your life before settling down.
