Hi.. Well I live in India.. and here the legal age for a man to get married is 21 and for woman is 18.. What do you think should this age be changed because at the age of 21 a person is not well established and for woman its even worse at the age of 18 she would have only passed her school.. so do you think that the age is justified??

Well, if that is your law you should abide it. But for me age is not the issue to get married, as long both of you are emotionally prepared, financially able, and commited at the same time, you can get married right away, but ofcourse you must love each other to have a long lasting relationship.

I would say the age of 22 or 23 will be okay.. After she finishes college, is a good age.. By then she will be well established..

Ya.. I also believe that the age of getting marriage shud be lifted to atleast 22 for woman.. so that she may also stand on her own before gettin married.

Yeah I guess for a girl, 18 is really young and you are right she is not yet finish in her school by that time. 21 would be okay for me but again you are right again in telling that most men are not yet ready to be married. for me there is no right age to get married. One must be matured enough to take the responsibility of getting marriage. That is more important to me and maturity can come in a person at any age.

In China for man, you can' get married until 22; for woman, it's 20. In my opinion, the perfect age of marriage is man 25, woman 23. Because marriage is serious. Happy marriage consises of a lot factor: including physical and psychological mature, financial supply, and so on. Usually You can' get these factors at certain age. Chinese young generation tends to get married late these years especially in the city. That's good I think.

well ,i think the most suitable for marriage age is 24-16 .i mean the woman , in my opionin ,if a woman want to marry with someone ,he must have cetain condition ,including the physical and psychological mature ,and she can be enjoyed the marriage better ,and cannot be said a legal that woman must married when she old enough .it is a fallcy the second factor is related the two sides of family ,the marriage is never be a easy thing ,that complicated thing .if it came a big promble ,you must have a clear mind to solve it ,,, so whoever the man or woman get to the 24-26 he or she can be get mature enough ,,so i think it is the best time to marry with you lover,,
