The ideal age for getting married is when you've met the perfect guy/girl! You can't say or put a time on when you're going to fall in love with the right person, because it happens when it happens. If you say you wanted to be married by a certain age and that time gets closer, might a person settle for second best to make their goal? Just be patient and don't rush it. It's one of the most important decisions in someonse life!

That is the real question, and I think the first person who can truly tell you the answer to that is going to be rich! For me, it's like all the nervous energy I experienced when first going out with someone got stronger, rather than diminished as time passed. You get easily distracted from what you're doing by thoughts of that person, and being away from them is very hard to deal with. You love everything about them, even the parts that others would see as faults to you are just part of what you love. If you think how you would feel if they weren't there and it is an unbearable feeling. Hope this helps, but love can feel different for everyone. Good Luck!

i dun suppose there is an IDEAL age to get married. One must know the consequences and expectations of being married. I feel that both parties must be able to handle themselves well in terms of finances and emotions first before they get into marriage. With marriage comes sacrifices of time, energy and sometimes friends. being together as bf and gf is not really the same after you get married. Think carefully before u take the big leap and know that u will never regret doing so. A lot of communication will be necessary. You just have to be matured enough to think for yourself and your new family/partner. Be ready to make lotsa compromises along the way.

For me, I dont have an ideal age for marriage. It's the right person that counts. Why hurrying into marriage just because the biological clock is ticking away? The time will come when the couple feels that they're so inseparable and in love with each other that they want to start a family of their own. Nothing is too late, I know someone who gets married at the age of 40 because she found him that late in life.

I think 26 is a good age, for girls that is. For guys well usually 27-29 is a good age. At least before 30 because you have to think if your kids, if you are 26 and you had a kid when he/she is 10 you will be 36, when he turns 20 you will be 46 (its an acceptable age to avoid Generation GAP) if you marry older lets say 35 imagine the gap (I'm only talking about the FIRST KID). When you get married some couples takes 1-3 years before having a baby, some are immediately blessed. Plus you have to consider how many kids you want. The safest distance of kids from each other is a minumum of 2 years to 3 years. Some have it consecutive but that's not healthy for your wife, because her womb is still resting from carrying a baby for 9 months, "give her time to rest". HOWEVER A Man/Woman who likes to FLIRT and HONESTLY BELIEVE that you CANNOT STICK to ONE MAN/WOMAN... PLS DONT GET MARRIED!!! Marriage is not a GAME, you play it only when you like but when you start NOT liking it, You will just QUIT... THAT's NOT HOW MARRIAGE WORK. Marriage is a DECISION to be with someone for the rest of your life, in good and bad times. Whatever negative traits or short comings he/she has... you have to fill that up for her/him. Likewise she/he will fill up your negative traits or short comings. You help each other and you TALK with each other to resolve issues "In a soft TONE of Voice". Never fighting in front of the KIDS too. Thanks =)

well...i think aideal age for marriage varies from person to person according to his/her financial state of affairs,his/her family situations....nature of living etc...for example for the son of a business tycon ideal age for marriage should be around 22 where as for a salaried person who has to look after his/her retired parents too ideal age should be around 28....so one cannt pin point one year of age which can be termed as ideal for marriage...fir gals ideal years must around 20-24

I think for me i would like to get married mid 20's to early thirties. It all really depends if you are ready or not. marrying someone just because you feel like you need to because of age isn't the right reason to at all! You should never have to feel pressured to marry!

Actually, there's no ideal age for marriage (just not too young enough), as long as both partners know the nature of being married. It is a long lasting VOCATION not just a simple occupation that you can leave if you are tired. Responsibility, stability, honestly, loyalty, matureness, trust, openness and oneness are key factors to have a good married life.
