To be honest with you I never thought about the best age to get married. I would like to get married between the age of 25 - 30 but I guess it depends on your lifestyle first, for example are you ready to get married? have you found the one where everything feels right? My mum is getting married this September and she is 43. I think first of all I would need to plan my life out first, make sure I am comfortable and settled with finances etc. Marrying someone isn't on my life list and number 1. If it was destiny it would happen.

I think there are two aspects to this. You might have heard that there were child marriages in some parts of the world. I do not know if they still exist or not. But the society that time was such that, it was a custom of getting married. Now, after some scientific research it has come to know that there should be ages like 18 for girls and 21 for boys which we all know. That is the minimum of course. But there are marriages of boys and girls who are in their late twenties. So, I do not think if anyone is of that age then they are late for their marriages. It depends, but I think as you said 25-30 is ideal.

I think the best age is between 26- 32 approcimately. you are not too young and you lived your live , childhood , teenager years, and your first mature years and you are not too old for marriage and even children. for me personally that is the best age to get married.

Age in my opinion is just a number... Meaning it really depends on where you are at in your life, are you ready to share just about everything with another person, the same person for the rest of your life? It is better to have your career set, and also know who you are, before settling down.. I am not sure what the right age is.. but I know that when I got married I was way too young.. I was four months away from my 18th birthday.. It was fun to share the 21 stage with someone, growing up you can say... if someone was to get married that young the only caution or what not i would say is when you and your other half are maturing, hopefully you both stay on the same path... and if one is growing faster then the other, getting jealous and trying to hold that person back to stay the same.. It doesn't work... To answer your question.. the right age... if i did have to put a number on it I would agree with your age range... not really young, but older, set in your ways and harder/not likely to compromise on certain things...

i guess so but it really comes down to if you are ready to get married. if i could pick an age that i want to marry it could be 23-25. at least your still young and being a woman you're still healthy to have a baby. not too old, not too young.

to be serious i near even have any idea at what age getting married is best..but then as far as my knowledge is concerned i guess the age between 25-28 is the best time to get married...because thats the age when one gets totally matured..and comes to know about everything properly...managing thing ,house hold everything...so according to me the best age to get married is around 25-28

Hi dilip For me the ideal marriage age for the girl is between 20 - 25 and the boys is 25 to 30. I got married at the age of 26years and now I am 55 years old and sick too. My husband too is a sick person. But my sons are now 28 and 24 years of age and they are looking after us well.

I think from 24 to 28 is the right age to marry because that's when we're mature enough to take responsibility for our own life,own decisions!i think we only should get married when we already earn money by oursefl and can take care of our own small family

That is the great ideal age to be married. At that time most of all are finished already in their studies and have their jobs already or I can say that they are mostly prepare for their married life.

I think for me it is not with just the age to consider getting married. I think it is best determined on how well prepared you are in taking that big leap. There are some who married early but still made the best out of it and is still happy with the decision. There are some who we're happier that they got married around their late twenties. So, it is really hard to specifically state an age to get married but mostly people would answer around 25-35.

age is not really the basis for getting marriage, one can get married anytime even at an early age as long as they both stable enough to support their own family, like stable job and stable love for both of them and that no matter what happened they will stick to each other.

The best age at which to get married?.. I think it is when somebody felt they ready to get married... I'm not gonna do a marriages if i don't have a job already... But anyway, perhaps 25 - 30 it's ideal to get married...

Marriage is a serious undertaking. Therefore, one should be mature enough to handle relationship and problems before deciding to get married. Although no age is fixed for getting married there is a typical time for it like when you are adult enough to know how to handle matters of the family. It is also important to earn good income so that you can live independently.

Yes, with marriage, 25-32 is best as maturity , settlement so you can start understanding life with cool head. Especially for having kids this is right range. As nowadays, late marriages gets problem with kids, though technology is developed. But you can get things at right time! Again, it depends on time. Marriage will happen on its own, not as we decide.

I always wanted to get married when I was at least twenty-five. I figured that way I would have my bachelors degree, a car, hopefully be starting my career, and figuring out where I wanted to settle down. I got married when I was twenty four and had one semester of school left. I wouldn't have gotten married if I wasn't really close to finishing my degree and if I didn't feel like I was financially stable. I have a friend who got married when she was eighteen and is about to have a baby. Her husband has a great job and they've taken out loans in order to pay for their new arrival. I think that's great for them, it's just not the way I would have wanted my life to turn out.

when it comes to marriage in my opinion age is not a matter. the important things are if both of you are sure and prepared to the next level of longterm relationship. if you gonna based it in age and the both of you are not ready maybe it would not be a good start for the two of you. it should not be that oh we are both 27 and we are not getting any younger lets get married. it should not be the reason for marriage.

The best age to be married doesn't need to have a number placed on it. The best age for you to be married ideally is when you're emotionally and financially prepared for it. In a more practical mindset though if you're financially set but not really quite there yet then it's up to your partner and you to work towards emotional wellness. I think it's more important to find the right partner than finding the right age as you'll be able to enjoy your marriage better that way
