of course 24 to 28 is age for marriage..... if one become a parent even after 2 or 3 years after marriage, he/she will have earning potential, till their baby get settled in his / her life...I think which is crucial....

i was marriage when i was 26 so i think 24 is just a bit young,but if you both ready why not?you need to make sure and think that marriage is not just for a short term but its forever,everlasting term.you need to ask in your self if are ready in marriage life,for being a wife and become a mother and if can really cope you responsibility and of course a stable job both of you..love is the spices of everthing before you reach this decision,feel free to ask your bf if he truely in love and become a husband and a father of your childrens and stand every challenge in your life as a couple....goodluck

I dont think there is such things as the perfect age for marriage because 18 is a legal age . If you are referring to a marriage that will last it has nothing to do with age but the love the couple share and what they want to achieve .

i think 24 is still young to marry. in this age, you still enjoy and go out with friends. you have to enjoy the single life first to have a successful marriage. don't rush 'cause you might be missing something. settle first with the perfect job for you. i think 27 or 28 is the best age to marry. by then you already have a stable job, has grown weary about going out with friends. then you must be able to find a fiance by then.

I think the perfect age to marry is between 25 to 30. Have a nice day!

Maybe late 20's or early 30's. But you have to make sure that you are ready to face another challenge in life and of course you have to be financially stable. I'm 26, most of my friends are married and some of them already have kids. I'd love to be happily married in the future & have a wonderful family when the time is right.=)

I think that a great age to get married is anytime between ages twenty one years old and thirty years old. Then the lady has time to get pregnant. To be successful at marriage a couple need to have everlasting love and be totally compatible. Marriage can end in divorce when the couple find out they aren't compatible. Divorce and parent split ups can be depressing and upsetting for the children. The kids can suffer greatly greatly in the first two years after the split you see. My parents married when my parents were thirty one years old. Three years later my mom gave birth to my sister. I was born five years after her. My parents parents divorced when I was aged ten to eleven years old. I got married at twenty two years old and divorced six years later. My children are ages seventeen, five and three years old.

I don't think there's an ideal age, as each people mature at a different pace. I wouldn't really advise to anyone to marry under 20, though, because even though in most countries after 18 people are seen as adults by law, but they are still in development soulwise, and they can be a little immature and impatient and not really thorough in decisions. 24 is a nice age, if you feel committed and know that you're not going to give up easily when you're gonna get into fights or difficulties.

I don't think there is a perfect age for marriage. Many have this mindset, that by a certain age they have to be married, which is why it ends in divorce.

Hi shalloo. I don't think there's a perfect age for marriage. I have friends who got married at the age of 18 and they have two kids but they are still happy together. They're just an average family. The husband works abroad and the wife is a stay at home mom. I have known people who got married at the age of 25 and they got divorced. They have great jobs and 2 kids as well. They live in U.S.A but they weren't able to make it work. Some of my relatives got married at the age of 35 but still they got divorced despite being ready financially and physically. If the couples are both emotionally, financially, physically and spiritually ready, I think that's the right time to get married. And if they know each other well and can compromise the imperfections too.

As much as age is an important factor in marrying, I think your maturity and readiness is far more important. You're right, to be in marriage is a big responsibility. You have to be spiritually, financially and emotionally (and sexually?) ready for it. Being attracted and intimate with someone is not enough, there has to be a deeper sense in it, a commitment to a lasting bond between the two of you.

If now I have Stable income, house, and the one I love, I will get married right now. It is not about age,only if we are above 20. Once get married, there is more responsbility on the shoulder. One should have the ability to take this and ready to take. then you are mature enough to get married.

Hi shalloo ! There is no perfect age for marriage. In fact success in marriage can not be measured to on what age you marry. In my opinion, it is on how you are ready or prepared for the next chapter of your life. Married life has plenty of complications, starting with the individual characters, financial stability, the in-laws and many more. Examine yourself first if you are that ready so you can adjust, accept and love the new changes of your life when you marry.

In my own opinion there is no perfect age for marriage but there is a perfect situation. As long as you are ready in all aspects then maybe you are now ready to enter a married life. Even some people think as long as they are loving each other then it it is the right time for them to get married and face together all possible trials that may come.
