I used to say 25yrs too, but then i married at 22 because i had met the right guy and managed to get through it financially. There is no right age, as long as you manage to meet the right person whom you feel sure you can spend a happy lifetime with.

i can understand how you feel as i went through that time too. i prayed a lot because i felt very lonely and sad at that time. i wish you luck, but never stop hoping and doing your best to reach your dreams. where there is a will and a dream there is a way.

Hi, drshav. I think there is no a right age to get married, of course. People can decide when they get married, and sometimes you just know that it's the right time. Some of my friends get married soon after they graduated from college, which is about 22 or 23-year old. They think it's ok and they look happy. So to me, I wish I can get married at 26. ^^ Wish you find your dream lover soon.

Thats good that your friends are happy eventhough they married at a very young age. I guess when you feel so ready and you know you can take the responsibility then there will be no problem getting married. Goodluck to you then and i hope youll marry the right person when the time comes that youre already 26.

I think there is no "right" or "specific" time to get married. As long as you are ready emotionally, mentally and financially, go ahead and get married. But some may disagree with this... Biologically speaking, women should marry and bear children in their early 20s because that's the ripe age for childbirthing where children born to mothers at that age range are more healthy while men's ideal age for marriage is in their 30s though there is a saying about men that goes, "life begins at 40." Just take a step at a time. Don't rush into marriage because it is a commitment. It's not a joke that you can retract everything you've said. Take the time to know your partner if he/she is the right one for you.

Thanks for your advise i really should take time then because getting married is not a big joke. I dont want to marry someone whom im going to regret having him in my life. I want to marry who i can surly grow old with.

i believe marrying before 30 and having couple of kids is a very good idea

I agree on that it will be really nice building a family on your own before you became 30. If i have met the right guy then i would absolutely get married before i reach the age of 30.

Hi Drshav, I don't believe that there is a right age to get married either. I am 20 at the moment and I have to admit that for me it feels like the right time now, because I am in love and visa versa, but for other people it can vary. Before I met my partner I didn't like the idea of marriage. The younger me found it abhorrent and couldn't comprehend settling down or tying the note, I wasn't that sure about having children either. But when I met my partner and we started a serious relationship the idea started to feel natural. And not just marriage but the whole package: family and children. That was a turning point for me and if things work the same for you then maybe you will have that moment too where things just feel right in your mind and heart and you just know. And that could happen at any time, before or after the age of 25 :) In the end I think that only you can know when the right time for you to get married is, but be patient, you don't have a sell by date All the best and good luck finding the right guy in the future.

Well, the legal age to get married is i think 17 or 18 so i consider it the right age. But i'm still not married and i'm 25 so i'm gearing for 30. It's really hard to choose who you're gonna be with for the rest of your life cuz, well, you're gonna live with that person for the rest of your life so you really have to choose wisely.

I think the legal age is 18. I guess it really differs on what age we really prefer to get married. And choosing the right partner is really hard especially nowadays.

if you feel that your ready to get married then go ahead. and if you thing that if your gf is already ready then why wait for long. but before that even if both of you are already ready emotionally you must also take into consideration about money matters, if your salary is stable enough to support your up coming family.

for a girl that should be around 25 to 28 and more than it consider late and about a man it can be later a little bit it can be around 30 to 35 because a man need to build their own career first before they want to have his own family it is just what i think .

I think its fair enough to get married around late 20 or early 30's. I said so because at these age you will still be able to see your kids grow and enjoy their lives not to mention to guide them in their daily lives too.Its better that we will be the ones molding our kids future and be able to help them understand their environment and give them a peace of mind all the time.Im glad that your thinking about these kinds of stuff already my friend god bless and enjoy your day
