I really don't care about the age - and I don't think there's one "perfect" age. It depends on your personal situation and of course when you find that person you'd love to spend the rest of your life with. This could happen at 18, 25, 40, 55, 60, who cares? I also agree with you in a sense, though, that people should be financially secure and independent from their parents before they get married - but that's more of my own personal opinion. But it of course depends on your personal situation and job situation.

For me there is no such thing as an ideal age for getting married. As long as you feel that you had found the one then why not marry? When I was younger I never dreamed of getting married. I only want to earn a lot so that I could buy all the things that I imagined to have. My own house, car, jewelries and to travel around the world. I thought that I would probably be in my early thirties or late thirties when I start my own family because I really want to enjoy being single first before getting hitched. I just got my license as an engineer when I met my fiance. Just started a job and only owned a cellular phone I bought from my first salary. I guess things really don't work out the way I planned. But I know that I have done the right thing because my fiance do loves me a lot and I love him too.

In our times, we usually say after graduation and after finding a good and stable job, is the best time we can finally say we should settle down. But is you are asking for the right age I would not answer it since it really depends on your maturity level and readiness to jump into it then you can do it. In legal terms, I guess that would depend on the area where you are living. There are countries that they accept as early as 18 but in many countries 21 is said to be the right legal age to get married.

It is only the law that states the exact age when you are legally getting married. Beyond that depends on the person itself.

The perfect age for me to get married is thirty years old. Not too young and not too old either. By this age, a person is already mature and financially stable to start a family.

There really is no "ideal" age for getting married in general.. Your ideal age would be much different than my ideal age, depending on how financially and emotionally stable you both are. Age is just a number, truly. However, I do feel I made the mistake of getting married too young at 22.. I divorced by 26 this year. So, with that in mind, my advice is to just make sure you are happy with where you are in life, and feel confident that the two of you can depend on one another in good times and bad.

Hey, Well I don't really know, it all depends on if you are mature enough to get married, and if financially you have the resources to sustain yourself. I think that the age which is about right for marriage would be about 23 or 25, something like that. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!
