hi there! I don't think one can really say what an appropriate age for marriage would be. I believe it depends on the couple and their individual situation and love for each other. I do believe people should be at least 18 years old though. But after that, I think it is entirely up to the couple. Some people are very mature at 20, while others need more time to grow up before getting married. There are a lot of things to consider before getting married. I think it is very important that man and woman are sure they really love each other and have already established good communication. That is the key! It is important for them to really know each other - likes, dislikes, morals, values, ... I got married when I was 24. I think that was a great age for me. Notice I say for me. I was ready and I truly loved my husband. I had no doubts. At 24, I feel I had some time before marriage for myself. I was able to finish my bachelors degree, travel, and live on my own a little. This time to myself helped me grow and learn more about what I wanted and didn't want. I highly recommend that someone has some time to themself before marriage for this reason. so, no, I don't think you can really say you have to be ___ age before you can get married. It just depends on the person/couple.

By responding to this question you make me to think that I become older again with one more year in 2007.I cant say if is a good age or a bad age but some are calling this age a good one.At this age you are able usually to think more mature than others which are younger,but also you can be in the crisis of this certain age.You have to have a good family and maybe children.As for me at this age I have a family ,a driven license which usually you can afford to have at the age of 18 here in Romania,I have a job but I do not have any children yet.I would like to have and I think is the best age to be already in marriage life.Some says that the best age to be married is around 29 years old but this depends from country to country.If you can guess what age I have it is very good and if not I will tell you that I am 37 and I am thankful to God for what I have and done till this age!May God bless you all even if you are old ,young ,married or not married!So if you can calculate the year of my born you will see that I was born in 1970!

There really is no correct age. As long as you are over 18 and you feel like you are ready it is up to you. I was 25 when I got married but I have had friends marry at 18 and are still together after 15 years. So it is up to the inviduals when they feel they are ready
