Even in my early age(23), sometimes im able to think of marriage life, those dream weddings, being with your someone special for the rest of your life. I often think of what age is appropriate to enter into a married life...??

as for me, there's no specific age by which it is ideal for someone to enter the married life. it though requires a certain level of maturity for one to handle. i guess the age by which that certain level of maturity is achieved varies from person. Normally you emotional maturity and stability comes with age, mind-set and experience. Also, we must consider that before one enters the family life, he or she must be able to carry on with the responsibilities attached to it. it does cost to build a family. it would need for someone to at least be financially independent and stable for one to be able to support his/her family. i guess that's one consideration by which age again will be a factor. you are normally expected to be able to have a job that will earn you a living after you have finished school. that's around your early 20s. For women, it is also a fact that the more you delay your marriage (e.g. late 30s onwards), the more it is harder for you to bear a child). that's biology. that's why when biological clock ticks, some girls gets startled and just plunge into it without any other consideration.

you're right, its a serious responsibility to take..which that would be for the rest of your life. An i think, it needs totale preparedness in everything. Well, it's funny to know but I agree with you..some just plunge easily on it without any considerations.

In my view, a tender age of 18 will do. Even if we say 30 or 40 years old there are still married couple who breaks up even at a later age. I will depend on the companionship of the couple and how they will adapt with problems that face marriage.

i agree..but some people prefer to marry at a legal age or should i say in a maturity level.

I think everyone is different, ready at different ages plus it all depends when the right person comes along, a lot of people marry the first person that comes along and they don't wait for the true love.

maybe we should be patient enough to wait for the right time and right guy for us...before engaging into something serious

For me there's no particular age for marriage, as long as you are ready to face the responsibilities of a married person and mature enough to know how to deal with then you can get married.

hmnnn...yeah, there are instances that maturity is not based on age.
