Getting into a marriage life is not a game and people should not regret entering into a serious relationship.Most people who marry at young age would end to separation but not all.There are a lot of reasons why we should think first before marrying someone.But what age do you think would someone get married?For me,I will get married when I have a stable job and would be able to provide all the needs that my family needs.How about you guys?

I got married at 21. I met my husband when I was 18 and he was 31. We married two and a half years later. We have been married 30 years. There's been some rough times and some scary times. He had to have a triple bypass in 2008 and I was so afraid I was going to lose him, but he got through it and is doing well. I've got friends that were married at 15 and 16 and are still married. It's all about finding the right partner, having mutual respect for one another and both of you working toward the same goal and love for one another. It's not really the age, it's the mentality.

When I was young i always dream to get married at age of 25 where I am already physically and mentally prepared but when i met my husband when i was 22 then get married by age of 23 everything has been change. Although I am not really prepared during that time but I know it myself that i can make it and i want to live with my husband with the rest of my life. I admit were not financially prepared when we get married but we have enough savings and knowledge to support our needs.

I personally don't believe in getting married. I have lived with my current partner for 10 years and we have a good stable life. My advice would be that, if people wanted to get married, they live together first. Then, if they feel like getting a marriage ceremony, I would make sure I was over 30 years of age, and had lived with the other person for at least 5 years.

I got married at 20 years old. My husband and I will be married 8 years this April. =) We have made it through many hard times and we are still happily married so it can happen no matter what age you are. It depends on your maturity level, that is the biggest aspect to me. My husband and I were NOT financially stable and we still made it through, matter of fact our struggles brought us closer and made us stronger in our bond. You can either turn problems into major headaches and take it out on each other, or you can talk and figure things out as a team. We chose the latter. Plus, having the same faith helps a LOT. We are usually on the same page with most things... Eight years and 3 kids later, we are still VERY happy together! =) No separation or divorce here.

I should be at a marrying age so they say but I can't say that I am financially stable. Or maybe I just have the perfectionist view of being financially stable. I see some people at my age who earned less than I do but still they manage with what they have. They are still happy.

There is no right age to when someone gets married or not. I got married at 21 and some people tell me that is way to young but it's not it's in the norm of when a lot of people get married. We weren't stable didn't have every much money nor a home of our own we weren't even renting at that time but slowly we have made it to our feet and started a life of our own with every little help from anyone but ourselves and hard work.

I always tell myself that I will get married at the age of 24. I sort of calculated it through because I told myself that I don't want to have a kid who is still in school when I am already of retirement age. Then when I reached 24, I realized I wasn't ready. Far from being ready emotionally, financially, physically and mentally. Later at the age of 28, I got married. And I didn't regret that I only married now instead of earlier.

When I was young my ideal age to get marry was 25 and above but now I'm already 27 and still unmarried. My boyfriend's ideal age for marriage was 30 but due to both families' demand for us to get marry so soon he decreased it to 28 and it will be next year ( we just have the same birth year). But we still both financially unstable or unemployed I don't know if the big day will really happen next year we've been together for 9 years. In God's perfect time it will happen.
