now I am 28 years old and I still keep single in spite I have a boyfriend.actually,we have been planning to get married for several years,but because we do not have enough money and we do do not want to ask money from our parents,so we may get married after post graduation,then we can depend on ourselves to have a wedding.but then maybe I will 30--oh,too old.so how do you think about this?

There is no "too old". Get married whenever you feel ready to get married. I never really thought about getting married. I never had a "goal age" or whatever, that I've seen a lot of girls have. How long have you been with your bf? How long do you have until you graduate? What kind of wedding do you want that you can't afford? You can make a really pretty wedding for really cheap if you want to.

well i think the right age to get married for me is 23 ofr a girl and 28 for a guy.however it really depends on individual preferances.i had completed my post graduation by that time and i was also working and my partner too,so he thought of getting married.its good to hear that you want to be independent first,however i think if you two really wanna marry ,you can go ahead .even i am doing my studies still after marriage.i think marriage makes one more serious in life and gives more confidence since your partner is there with you always to support you.well my best wishes to you.

thank you very much!I think for girls,it is good to get married at early age,because she has the responsibilit to raise a child in the future!

Why does the responsibility solely fall on her shoulders? Is the man too busy reading his paper and smoking his pipe to help out? Not all married couples want children, either. It's a personal choice, not an obligation.

I think it is an individual choice & deoend on the circumstances & thinking.In your cse you have financial matters concerned so you want to wait.Anyways one should always get married when he or she is mentally & financially prepared for the responsibilitie ahead.

actually there is no preferred age for getting married unless of course you are a minor.but for me if you are matured enough to make your own decisions and if you are finacially capable to get married then go ahead and marry someone that you like but still its better to think about it a lot opf times before you go in to any relationships just to make sure you were making the right decisions and you wont regret it in the end....

I liked to marry later. And finally I got married when I was 28. And I had my baby one year later. Finally I fnished two of important goals in my life before I was 30.

Right now I'm only 17, and I intend to enjoy my youth for the time being, but I hope to be married by 30.

Me and my boyfriend have talked about marriage but I don't want that any time soon. I don't believe I need a piece of paper to tell me that we are truly in love. W e are settled down together but just not married any time soon

There's no correct age to get married, it all depends on what's best for you and how it'll fit into your life. I'm 22 and don't want to be married for a few more years yet. I want to have some fun still before I settle down and get serious...I'll only get to be in my early 20s once so I want to experience that unmarried. I AM in a committed relationship where we live together and sometimes it FEELS like we're married! lol

personally me and my fiance have been together for nearly 3 years now. we want to get married as soon as we can afford it. if it wasnt for our families we would just have a registry office wedding and leave it as that. but my paretns want us to have a big wedding for some reason. i dont know why but i dont really want that

My ideal marrying age is 28. But... i'm now 28 and yet still have no plans for that. Although i'm now is not ideal at his time. The situation just doesn't fit for it.
