There are some people who believe that there's a certain and right age to start a family and get married. They believe at the age 28 is the exact time to settle down. But for me, getting married is not greatly depend on age, it should be in financial, emotional and spiritual aspects. What is your opinions?

Hi care! It is true that till such time a person is financially independent and could take the responsibility of maintaining a family, he should not get married. However, getting married after the age of 30 could be a problem in terms of bearing children. It is always better to get married, if others things are okay, at an early age, say 25 years or so. It will help the couple to bring up their children in a better manner and when their children will grow up and will be of marriageable age, they would still be in their late forties and can manage their grand-children too.

Yeah, you have point. Having a family at 30's could bring problem and complications with pregnancy and bearing a child. And having a family at mid 20's could be ideal, but if one is not ready still it's not good. Getting married should not based on age. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I don't believe that there is such thing as a right age or ideal age to get married. It really depends if the person is emotionally prepared or matured enough to enter into a relationship or lifetime commitment and the obligations the goes with it. He or she should also be financialy prepared since married life will require high "operational cost" than living a single life.

Yeah, you're right, it should depend on the persons readiness to start a family and stability of her/his finances. The maturity of the person in handling responsibility and problems. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Hello Henry, yeah people who get married should be matured enough in all aspects of life. But you know, there are some people who should be matured on their age, but still they are childish and immature. It depends on their upbringing and their environment. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Being pregnant at 17 and loving the man I was with, changed my plans in life fast! I agree you should be financially secure though things don't always work out that way.Though 25 years later our house is almost payed off and our daughter has flew the cope. No regrets just a bit different circumstances which many will have.Though it does not seem to always have a fairy tale ending like mine.

Oh, it must be hard for you having baby at early age, because I have a friend who have baby at age 16. She confessed me all the hardship she undergo not to mentioned with the changes and the huge responsibilities on her shoulder. Aside from financial troubles and difficulties dealing with her relationship. However after 8 years, now when she recall all those things that she been through she just smile. And yeah, like you, she has no regrets. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I think getting married at a right age is very important. We shall be mature enough to become a good wife and a mom(or a husband and a father), in that case, we could handle all kinds of problem. On the other hand, getting married at all age is also ok.

I think that somewhere in your twenties is a good age to get married.
