For me the best time to get married is around 26 years old so I'm not that old enough to hang out with my kids when they starting to grow so I could teach them all kids of sports and hobbies, without having problems concentrating or moving keeping tract with your kids. When you decide to get married later than 30 years old you might have problems taking care of your kids because of your age your body is starting to aged and the functions of your body will start to decrease in time that's why for me the best time to get married is around 26 years old. What do you think?

Hi friend! It depends on one's own choice as to which is the best time for marriage. You want to marry earlier 'cause you're afraid of getting old to nurture up your kids. Actually, the strength of the body depends on one's own habit and personal practices. There are many people who have still been able to preserve their youth even after being old. Talking about me, I'm 36 and still unmarried. I'll marry next year (2011). I've the faith on myself that I'll be able to rear my kid in time. Have a nice day!

i think people mature at different ages, so i can't speak for everyone what's the appropriate age for marriage. I personally would want to get married now or anytime now, but I DO NOT think I am actually ready for this. I have one child, but the responsibilities of a parent are not the same as those of a wife. For women, ideally, if they are planning to have kids they should do it before the age of 30 because of the biological clock ticking away which is not the same case for men.

55 maybe. I can't imagine getting married any younger. Perhaps by the time I've 55 I'll feel different. ALternatively, maybe I'll be even more happy single by 55. Who knows.

For me the best age to get married is in the late 20's and as closer to 30 as possible, because it is when you have enough maturity, before that you are constructing a career, you are just getting out of college, many people go to graduate school, law school or medical school. Also in my experience I have seen that my guy friends start to feel the necessity of look for a life-long partner during his 30's.

getting married is not with the age, but how ready you are to face those responsibilities ahead as a mother/father and as a wife/husband. before when I was younger I wanted to get married at the age of 28 or above, but now that I will be turning 28, I guess, I still have things that I want to accomplish before settling down.

I get married when i was 24, and i am very happy with my wife and kids. I think most important than age is love. If you both love each others, that's a good start but you must have the basis for that change. Finish your College at first, get your own house, buy a car if It's neccesary but you can live without it, a proffesion or a job in a solid company or at least get your future goals very clear. You can play with your kids and teach them all kind of sports for long time, you have to take care of your health to be good when you get 40. So, be worry about love, some material things and a good living job o proffesion. If you are on University, finish it first. Then you can talk about marriege. There's 3 basis life's time you have to enjoy, fisrt is Single Life, the second is with your wife and the third is with your wife and kids. Answering your question, i think 25 is a good age to get married and 29 is a good age to have kids.

I would say that 25 or over is better or even 30 is a good age, my mother got married when she was 22 and that was around the time she had he first child, my big brother, and had her last child at the age of 39 so she did pretty good my parents were married throughout all of her pregnacies, but when they got married they had good paying jobs and they were ready mentally, and emotionially, and financially. So really it depends on the person and how mature they are.

as long as im financially stable and net all my goals, thats the time to settle down and get married. why keep on fooling around?. having a family is more happy and exciting than that.it would do you no good, and maybe God would punish you someday.

For me, the best time to get married is when I am stable enough. When I already have my own house, own car, business and savings. I am 24 and i'm not yet done with school. I stopped for two years because of my ailment but i am going back to school this june. i am excited yet nervous. on thursday, i am going to get the copy of my grades and present it to the dean's office... i hope and pray that they will re-consider my appeal. pray for me :)

i agree with you. i plan to get married around age 25 or 26. i want to put all of my goals in place first before i can really settle down and think of having kids. also i believe in having children in wedlock. i am also family oriented. i want to give my children everything that they truly need and can really be there for them. To me getting married around 26 is quite comfortable because my then i will can more than afford and maintain living on my own and rising a family.

Well, I'm already 25, so that gives me just one year to save for my marriage.. hehehe. I think you're right about the age, but there are still other factors, like financial stability, which is really important. Another is emotional stability and all other kinds of stability. Hehehe. I wish though that I would get married before I'm 28, or when I'm 28... and not any later than that.

I strongly agree with you. i also wanted a young married arround the age of 25 years if i was ready. I do not want when i have kids i wiil not get along with them because of physical limitations of old. I think it would be very happy when the relationship father and son as a friend because i still look young.

I think what you are saying makes sense, although I do know quite a few people who didn't have kids until they were in their 30s and things seem to be working out fine with their families. I think the age factor becomes more important with grandkids.

Hi there natjohn20! FOR me at the age of 24 was the best age for me to get married. But marrying at the age of 24 years old was such a very much regret for me not because I am young, not because I am not ready, BUT BECAUSE of the man i get married into is not yet ready to have a family and not yet ready with the responsibilities to take to have a family. When in fact I should say that he is already in a marrying stage, he should me mature enough than me. So, even how prepared you are at that certain age and all plans for you seems to be all perfect but if you will be meeting and marrying the wrong person still its not worth it and not working that well.

age does not guarantee a person's readiness for marriage, which mainly is ready deal with mentally marriage itself. Many examples of people who get married at a young age can maintain her marriage until old age even though many are also examples of divorce due to marriage at an early age

The best age for me is when you are already 25 years old and over. In my family, my sister and brother got married when they were 23 years old and I have one sister who isn't married yet even though she's already over 30 years old. I totally agree with you when you said that if you get married when you're 30 then you wont be able to take care of your kids very well because your body starts to weaken. It was also my goal to get married at 25 years old and for me, it is one of my greatest achievements.
