Don't get married based on children. Children don't need you to be their bestfriend. They need you to show them love and discipline. They will have plenty of bestfriends in their lives, but they will need you to be the parent. That doesn't mean that you can't have fun with your children. Being young when you have your children gives you lots of energy to keep up with them. Children are a blessing, but you need to make sure that you and your future husband or wife are ready for the long term committment.

i have to agree with you. Even if you are young nor old, we should be responsible enough to handle responsibilities for our family.

I was 22 when I got married, and I am glad that I had my son at a young age. I was able to relate to the things that were happening in his life as he grew up. It was rather strange whenever I went to school functions to see the other children's parents so much older with greying hair. I once knew a woman who I worked with who got married at the age of 47 and then had a baby. As the child got older, people used to think that her mother was her grandmother, I would never like that to happen to me. So my answer to your question is, I think 23, is a great age to get married.

hehe,what you think is too more.you even thing of you son and grandchildren.ye,it is funny that you are also young when you have a children,so you can commnicate with your childrens without too many diffrences. i think the best marry age is around 28.in that age ,we can earn some money,and make everything on the right way.so we can marry without worriness. of course ,this is changed as the detailed situation of us.

I would think 28 above would be the best age to get married. By that age, you already have a stable job and mature enough to handle a relationship and ready to take care of a baby.

Hello mylottians thank you for posting your comments. I feel the best age for men 26-28 then only they will be run thier family good because you just think at the age of 25 he is just completed and very difficult to look after both himself and family. For women 23-25 that is best and that happens mostly they will able to treat thier hubby and family very well. Thank you have a nice time keep mylotting.
