I have a friend who got married at the age of 22. Getting married is a big decision and having your own family is a huge responsibility. For you, what is the best age to get married? Or does age really matter?

I dont think age really matters. I got married at the age of 21. I knwo some that got married even younger than that. So age is not an issue as long as you are in love and nelieve that the person is the one that you are meant to spend the rest of your life with. That is my opinion especially since there are a lot of marriages that end in divorce these days. i know a couple that have been married maybe a year or less. They have been on the verge of divorce two different times already.

Well, Love really is the answer to everything. But how do you know at the young age that you really love your partner? How do you know that he/she is the one?

You know i can't answer that question. I think it is different for each person. i know that I just could view my life without my husband even with any ups and down we might have. Plus the fact that we had been seeing each other for two years and four days before we got married. w had also lived together for a while. That gives a person a chance to see what the other person is really like. Because when you are just dating soemone they can put up a front and just act any certain way but when you live with someone you are able to see them at their best and worst.

Well The best age to marry is allright matter but now a days you cant marry any girl if you are nothing like in money vise. First i would like to stand on my own to atleast feed her something lol. THen i would think of getting married, I dont want to take responsibilities on an irresponsible baseline with just saying " yes i can " knowing it'll be hard in future.

yup, I agree. Its good to be financially stable first and have enough savings before you get married. Once you get married and have a family of your own, expenses wont stop and bills will already be coming every month.

In my opinion ,there is no standard of best age to get married fitting for anyone.People who are able to made a living by himself may get married anytime.Pelople who can't look after himself very well will meet with trouble afer getting married.

I guess being mature is more important than age. You can be mature even at a younger age. Also, financial stability also is a big factor. Once you get married, you have to stand on your own feet already for you and your family.

After 25,I think. 22 is too young ,at this age ,we haven't had enough experiences to deal with problems we may meet.

Having experiences really is important so that you will know on what to do specially when problems arise. Experience indeed is the best teacher. But I guess, experience doesnt come with age. You can be 20 but already has experienced alot in life.

Hi there! Personally I think age shouldn't be the question when marrying rather it should be "are you ready to give up the freedom of being single". Single life is far different from a married life. When you are single you still get a lot of freedom. In married life, you would be having a lot of responsibilities, being a mother/father and being a wife/husband. You also think less of yourself once you're married but more of your family. If you're ready to give up that freedom then I guess your ready to get married. Ciao!
