many of my batch mates or even friends tied their knots already. some would say it is better to have it early so that your children will like be your buddy but nowadays i don't think that is wise because of the economy.

Well I feel its better to get married early. According to my experience girls should get married before 25 and finish off deliveries by 30. early the delivery less complications or no complications. you become responsible and will have strength to deal will them during teenage. and you will also have strength to look after their children...LOL

I believe there is no exact "timing" to settle down. Some people are ready when they are at mid twenties, some are not. It depends on your maturity and whether you are financially ready. I got married when I was 23 and now I have a baby daughter. Yes, I decided to get married at relatively young age because I want my kids to be my buddies. Not too mention, as a woman, when you reach the age of thirties, pregnancy can be so tiring, and your stamina is not as good as when you're twenty something.

LOL . It's not as bad as you think. It hurts, yes, but no need to worry because our body is designed to do that. Whatever your decision is, good luck

It is really not about the age but the maturity that a person has which matters most when deciding to get married. There are people who are old but have the maturity of an 18 year old. The decision to get married is also influenced by the priorities set by the person. Those who want to have a more stable life for their future family would tend to marry at a later age when they are already settled with their careers and has enough money to sustain a better future for their family. While those who really want to raise kids tend to marry at a much younger age. It is easier to have children when you are younger than when you are older. Still, what is important in any marriages is that it is founded by love and the couples will try their best to work hard to make the marriage work.

I don't think there is a "right age" to settle down; you should do it when you're mature enough and ready to share your life with another person. I also feel that you need to find the right person before you settle down, because you will be spending the rest of your life with him/her. Personally, I am madly in love with my boyfriend and hope to marry him someday but at 21, I do not think I'm ready to settle down just yet.

I got married at the age of 22. At first, we are struggling financially because might be we are too young to have good job in my time. But I am already matured in my mind and responsible of being a dad. I think the right age for a person to get married is when his mind is already matured to handle responsibility

i don't think there is a right age to settle down,it's whenever you are ready,i settled down when i was 17,but that went wrong,not because of my age but because the man i settled with was horrible

When I was in college, I told myself that the best age to settle down is at the age of 28 but time cannot tell, I got married at the age of 23. There isn't really ideal age to settle down, as long as you are financially and emotionally capable then you can decide to tie the knot. Just make sure you can do all the marriage vows.
