It is hard to set the age one should marry or get married. In some communities 18 for girls and boys is the limit, but the necessary time is when the two (man & lady) feel they want to get married. It will be okay to get married when one has reached some psychological maturity and not just body growth. For the body will be ready by age 17, even though psychologically at that age an individual is not stable. Hence, no age can be said to be right for all people. Maybe you can shed light on whether individuals are psychologically ready and only the age remains a factor.

Marriages are basically based on cultures and traditions by many countries. We have different culture about marriage so different rules have to be followed. Here is our place, 18 years old is the legal age to get married for both girls and boys but since maturity comes late in boys, most get married at 21 or older. Girls who got pregnant before reaching 18 are not forced to wed her boyfriend and has to wait until she's 18 and the child retains her mother's name as dictated in our family code.

The right age would be the time they are mature enough to face the responsibilities of a married life. The maturity of a person is what is more important than the number itself when deciding to get married. There are people who are old but have the maturity of an 18 year old. Priorities are also a consideration when a person decides to get married. 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. Both my husband and me married at 25.

Age is but a number.. marriage is for whenever you choose to be married.
