there's no right age to get married. right sense, yes! the couple should have sense of resposibility. that includes financially stable, just to make sure they can live independently w/ their growing family; emotionally stable, to make sure their true feelings for each other; spiritually stable, be able to put God in the center of their lives; positive & stable mind, just to make sure the couple is sure of what they're getting into. i know some who enter married life at 21 yrs old & above but failed. it's because they are not ready yet for the responsibility of being a wife/mom & a husband/dad & they still think immaturely.

i think the right age for every person to marry is when he or she reaches the age of maturity which is at age 18 and in some countries at the age of 21. This is because when you reach your age of maturity, you are already mature, mentally, emotionally and physically. well of course in rare instances some individuals continue to remain immature even after traversing this age. in any desire to marry, what the concerned individual must bear in mind is his or her maturity level, financial capacity, emotional capacity and of course love. age is only important in the legal and emotional sense. legally because marrying outside the right age is null and void. emotional because marriage is a contract to be entered only by mature thinking individuals.

Well for me.. the right age to get married is when you have a stable life. you know, getting married means a lot of responsibilities. it involves having a child.You should have a steady source of income to bring up your family. Parent wannabees should always consider if they are ready for nourishing their family.It would mean giving off something in place of your family's welfare.

Hi! My husband and I have been together for 11 years and married for 6. I was 20 years old and he was 22 when we married. We have been together since I was 16 and he was 18. I think that it depends on the couple. You will know in your heart when you are ready.

What I can say is;it is more better if they are already prepared for a married life,they should understand the consequences and the better side when they are already in that kind of responsibility,they should both understand the real meaning of a lifetime partnership,that there are ups and down,trials and depressions.They should be oriented too about the period of adjustment.there are some couples that after the period of years there came the situation that they need to blame each other because it is already late when they realized each one of them could not stand each other's character.In a married life woman is the one who sacrifices more and the fact that this is really a part of responsibility being a wife.

by the way,the better age of getting married is 23 to 25,perhaps this ages both of them already understand each other's part on how to handle this husband and wife relationship.

For me it would probably be at a time when youre both financially, emotionally and mentally ready to have a life together. The financial aspect is a huge factor, you both or at least 1 of you must have a stable job to ensure income. Emotionally you must be prepared and must be sure that your partner is really the one that you would like to spend the rest of you life with. Mentally- since getting married is not just about weddings and living together, problems will evetually arise and you have to be mentally prepared and open minded to think of solutions to emerging problems.

for me there is no exact age on getting marriage as long as you both are matured enough and ready to face responsibilities! Some, at the age of 30plus get in to married but still not contented and unhappy because they're immature. Some, at the age of 18-25(in to married) and they're satisfied of what they are now, ready to obly resonsibilities and focus their mind and attention to their family!

To me, as long as both are financially and emotionally stable, age doesnt matter. Though this may happen at age 25.... or maybe a lot later for some

I think physical age doesn't matter as long as you're mature enough, ready to take responsibilities on your shoulders and handle complex situation, and of course you should be financially stable for you to give bright future to your children

For me, the right age to get married is at the age of 25 to 27. As long as the couple is financially and emotionally stable. The only thing with this marriage is that when the couple speed up things and jump into some decisions that can bring discomfort and problems in the future. So my advise is that when getting married, plan ahead of time. It is much advisable to be prepared a year before the proposed time. This is to be fully prepared on the planned date. I am planning to get married at the age of 27. lol!

In my opinion, there is no right age for people to get married. There is only a right time. So, when is a right time? IMO the right time is when you both feel that 'let's get married' is the right thing to do. But of cos some planning is required. Where i stay, there are some common thinkings that we must first get our own place before we get married, be able to host a wedding celebration for friends and relatives and be able to go for a nice honeymoon (optional). This basically means that we are financially prepared to get married.
