i think it all depends on the maturity level of the 2 people who are getting ready to get married. So it can be 18-what ever age. It is a commentment that should be entered when you are both ready to take that step.

I think a person should be atleast 23 or 24 when he/she wants to get married. By then that person will be both emotionally and financially ready for marriage. Marriage involves a lot of preparedness for adjusting with the partner and also to shoulder the responsibilities and the burden. I think you better wait for a couple of years.

That's not easy to do with out money, you know my Mom always said things happen for a reason. I married the man always love and we always want a big ceremony, guess what we ended with a small family and close friends wedding because that much money we had that time. My brotherinlaw paid for the food and cooked, I made my own wedding dress, and this not happend to long ago. Just follow your hart and things going well.

Wow your thinking of marriage at the age of 19? i was no where near thinking of marriage and raising a family at that age. I think i was too busy enjoying life and hanging out with friends at bars, dancing and having the time of my life LOL ...the choice is really yours but i would wait if i were you. If you cant afford to wed, then wait until you can - its best you fund the wedding than have others faulk out for you (but thats just me)

I think that every country and culture thinks differently about marriage. Our ideas about marriage have certainly changed over the years here in the United states. Even the age at which we think someone is old enough to get married has changed. My mother and her two sisters were all married when they were 13 years old. Now if you married someone 13 in the US you would probably go to jail for child abuse. I think that 19 is a nice age to get married. It is not necessary to have a big wedding. It is size of the love two people have for each other that is important, not the size of the ceremony. Kust remember, the Bible says that when you get married you are no longer two people, but one. I wish you happiness. Albert

My daughter was married when she was 20 I thought she was too young but it was her decision so I stood by her decision. She was married for 5 years and is now divorced. I'm not saying everyone at 20 is too young to get married but in my opinion I think you should be a little older when you get married. BUt everyone is different.

I think the right age to get married is about 25+

it is when you are already certain about what you want in life and are ready for the responsibilities.

I think the age a person gets married should be based on the level of knowledge they have. Most couples get married with out taking the time to discuss the important issues that will keep them together in the long run. You shouldn't rush to get married instead you should get to know yourself alittle more so you will already be complete and have more to bring to the marriage
