Parents are always telling their kids to wait to get married but did they? how old were your parents when they were married?

I think about 25 is good because you have time to get through college and are still plenty young enough to chase around kids!!!

Boy have you got that right. I have 2 kids one 5 and one 10 months. I could not immagine raising them being much older. Thanks

I think somewhere in your mid to late twenties is a good age to get married.

I picked 22 i think it was teh right age for me...Some people are ready at younger ages some at older ages so whatever workd for each person is different..When your in love and cant picture growing old with anyone else and the person you want to marry feels the smae .Then is the right time..

well these days parents have left things to the children as they have realised that they are sensible enough to do things on their own! As per my thoughts, i reckon that one should marriage when he is stable with life and when he thinks now is the right time i can support someone and make a family

Think there's isn't any standard range of age to get marry as long as you are both ready for the commitments, financially stable and well prepared the it should be consider as apprpciated age to get marry.

I think about 27 / 28yrs is probably more realistic.
