when i was still single, i used to plan on getting married at the age of 25, and have baby at the same age. But i was married at the age of 24. 1 year before planning to get married. i thought that being 25 was the right age of marrying and one is mature at that age.. but when i get to the age of 25, i as not quite sure of getting married, but i do love my husband. i just think of other youngsters who are not yet married, i think that the best time to get married is at the age of 28. it's not also good to get married 30 years and above.

When I was in my teens, I thought that it would be ideal to get married at the age of 23. I didn't want to have a huge generation gap with my future children. However, things change. As I grew older and as I lived my life, I came to realize that there are just so many things that I want to do, places I want to see, and people that I want to meet. So right now.... 32 might be a good age for me to get married.

having a huge generation gap with a children is one of the disadvantage of late marriage, it's okay to get married at the age of 32 as long as you decide to have children right after marriage, take your time and be happy... happy mylotting

According to my point of viewa girl should marry at the age of 23 and a boy should marry at the age of 27.More than that after marriage dont go for study.Because we cannot able to study properly.Before marriage we study hardly but after marriage we want to look after our partner,our child etcc.

you're right, study first before getting married, or else, you'll have had a hard time focusing on two things instead of one. having a baby and at the same time studying is a very tough job, once cannot focus on the other.

I plan on getting married when I'm 18. Umm...well, that's mainly because I'm 18 and my wedding is in two months. :) And I know what you're going to say (the same thing that everyone else says) that 18 is too young and I've got the rest of my life, etc. But we're both more mature than most 18 year olds, we've been living on our own for 9 months, which may not seem like long, but we've got experience paying bills, taking care of ourselves, working hard. It's certainly further than anyone else in our graduating class has gotten so far. And we think we're ready, so that's all that really matters. ^_^ You can tell us at our 50th wedding anniversary that we got married too young.

Well, I am planning to get married at the age of 26 but I don't think it will happen since I am already 25 now. I think it depends on fate and you know I don't want to think about it since I am afraid something bad will happen to me like losing my loved ones, and being lonely. =(

hello you know for me no particular age to get married, except for the age of 18 becuse that is the age allowed according to law, any ways you know its not the age its on how you handle your relationship to your partner, the important is you love each other no matter what age you get married!

perfect!love is the reason of marriage, one can't get married if they don't love each other,if a couple gets married without love, it would be a mess and it won't work out in the end.

It depends really If I found a rich beautiful loving girl then I would get married now since we would be wealthy and I wouldnt have to worry about supporting her lol. But since thats probally not going to happen I say I would get married maybe anywhere between 25-27 wich I think is a good age. Dont know why so many young people are getting married today.

Hi xannebull, I plan to get married at age 25. I need to collect money first and find the permanent job. Now, I'm still study, and this is my last year. I do hope to get experience of life as a worker man before I used to be married. I also need to support my family first and lighten up their burden because I'm the second child between my siblings. By the way, if I'm ready and have enough money, for sure I want to married early.

that's right daftarbaru, you have to save first before getting married and help first your parents. you will be showered with blessing if you help your parents first. don't be rush in getting married, you will find someone out there without searching.

I am still single and am at the age of 24 but I do plan on getting married when I'm 28. Which means that in less than 4 years I have to find someone I am attracted to, fall in love, get engaged and get married. Let's see If I can pull that off and make this a possibility. Any tips for a single guy?

just make sure that you'll meet someone you've dreamed of in a guy, like being nice and had a good family background. and make sure that the man is capable of feeding a family which will you have someday and that is very important. coz love alone can't do the work.

I want to enjoy my single life as long as i can. I'll get marry around 30 i think, but first i need to find the groom. I dont like to rush think up, i believe only need to marry once in our life finding the right man/woman must be really difficult.

yeah you're right, enjoy first for being single. it's better to be tied up with anyone that you are sure enough, and make sure that you are both stable financially and emotionally.

My gender is male, and i got married 5 years age at the age of 27, when my wife was 23 years old. We live very happily together after marriage. In my opinion, as long as the couple loves each other sincerely, age is not an important matter. May all shall be well, and may Jack shall have Jill!

i will marry when I come to 28 years. Currently 20 years running. But, if I dont have success at that moment, then surely I will delay my marriage to more 2 years coz I dont want to spoil my partners life.

I always thought I would be one who would get married quite late. I met my boyfriend 3 years ago and we two have very pleasant relations. Now I am 27 years old and we are planning our marriage next year. So just a coincidence with your suggested age of getting married ^_^ But I don't think we will have a baby soon after our marriage, maybe two or three years later. By the way, do you have children now?

In my best opinion, at least 30 is the best age or perhaps 32. It is good to have lots of financial stability first and a sort of independence. But sometimes people get too comfortable in their own right to settle down.
