What is the best age to get married (Males & Females) both?

I think that is up to the respective people though in my opinion late twenties is just nice. You will have experienced wat the world has to offer, had a chance to be financially stable and get to know people of opposite sex. Although I don't fall in the late twenties category, I feel it is just nice as you can do what you feel like doing till that time.

There are some who've married when they were 15 or 16, people whom I know personally. I myself was married at 17 and had kids when I was 18. But if I were to think of it from my perspective, I would find 25 or 26 to be a good age for a woman precisely because she'd be able to experience a little of life, be able to be independent.

As for men, maybe in their late twenties or early thirties probably. That's because most men in my own opinion, ( no offense intended) mature late. As in, they want to enjoy their bachelor state for as long as possible. And that's understandable as with marriage, comes great responsibility. And for that, they'd have to be mature and experienced some hardships I feel. Thus by early thirties, I feel that most would understand and be more mature. Of course, there are a few who grow up fast.

But then again, as I've said earlier, it's all a matter of opinions and the situation at the time.

it is true. in a way you can say that you had to get married because you were pregnant and i bet, during that time, there were things you'd much rather have wanted to do. but having children, i definitely agree with you that you feel glad that you grew up with your children. it was more or less the same for me though i wasn't pregnant of course when i got married. but a great grandchild at 68, wowww i can say you've more or less see what the world has to offer though that's not true cos experiences is never ending. and i definitely agree with you, it's better to have learned from your experiences and loved and lost rather than never loved at all.

I just got married last summer to the man I've been with for the last 8 years. I had my 1st son when I was 19 years old and now at 32 I have a 2 year old boy. I was always afraid to marry probably from seeing my dad married 3 times and mom twice. I was afraid of the complications with divorce. I think there are alot of people that get married too fast and then later regret it. On the other hand I probably could of married much sooner than 8 years later. :)

I like your article.

thanks so much tanyawatson. wow i can't believe you've been with your hubby for 8 years before you got married. i would have preferred to be with my hubby for a few years too but unfortunately it's not really the case or norm here.

i don't blame you for being afraid to get married early. it's understandable given the situation. but i'm really happy for you.

thanks so much for your comment. i really appreciate it.

I think 27 for men and may be 25 for women but then again it depends on the situation.

The problem is that in todays world marriage is nothing but a contract between a male and a female and kinda guarantee that if anything happens no individual would suffer economically.

My grandmother used to tell me about the time when people were more conservative and marriage was more of a binding between two families rather then a contract between two individuals......and becoz of such a big scoop marriage carried lots of responsibilites with it.....The couple knew that its not a relation between them only that would be at stake if anything goes wrong....rather two families are going to suffer.

See in a sense we have become very mean and our society has totally collapsed.....Nobody today in a marriage want to suiffer and give time to his partner......become have become aggressively sensitive to their rights and in that they forgot that society is based on love and mutual respect and ofcourse the relationship goes stronger wen you suffer for somebody and dont mention that and give time to others to straighten their acts.....

Well all in all, I feel that marriage should not be a contract it should rather be a grand relation among families and we should give everything to our married relation to keep it alive.......If we dont be that sensitive to our rights and stop complaining about every small thing.......we can make a great couple no matter what happens......well minor fights between opposite sex is inevitable:)

@johnny i agree with you. it depends on the situation. i understand where your grandmother's coming from. that is still going on back in my country, a conservative country. you have put it simply and nicely. nowadays we think more for ourself, so much more that it sometimes tend to be selfish without thinking about the other. that should not be the case i agree.

@john that's an interesting poll. thanks for sharing. good day^_^

thanks for all your responses.

@maddie32, i think there is no right age to get married personally. most of it all depends on how your society views things. we all have our own opinions and for your research, maybe you could put it that way. maybe you could state your research evidences and then maybe for your conclusion, state your personal opinions. hope you're able to work it out.

Bubbly 4 years ago

I'm 17. I'm getting married in June. The person I'm marrying is 22. Butive known him my whole life. Age doesn't matter at all. It's the people the matter. Love has no age limits. For a marriage to work, both people need to be willing to make sacrifices, work at their relationship everyday, discuss issues, don't let them go unspoken, that only causes pointless conflicts. Both people have to be willing to help each other, be supportive, and accepting. You can do those thongs at any age. Amdof course it all depends on finding the perfect person for you, the one who's personality compliments yours.

i think men should marry at 25age to 30.

and women should marry at 20age to 25 its the best age to get marry.

for marriage both should physically and mental strong and

should have decision making capacity and also have financially strong.

well, i guess when they say it effects your child, it probably means that if you're a little too old, there might be complications to the child but that's not really a guarantee though.

if one were to think practically and logically, i'd say get some income so you'd be stable but it also depends on your situation. hope it'll be solved. good luck

sminut13 4 years ago from singapore Author

it's understandable that your family and colleagues might think you were young. they would still see you as a child. but if you're really serious, then you should make sure you plan properly your future. marriage is not a game. if you're really sure, then ýou have to convince your parents that that's what you really want to do.

do discuss with your fiance, make sure both of you really want this. this is a big decision. but i too got married when i was 17 and my husband was 25. it was arranged marriage hehe.

Destiny 4 years ago

I just turned 22 & my fiance will soon be 23. We are young & in an interracial relationship, double whammy lol. We get married in october & would have been together three yrs in august. We feel life is too short, we are done with the single life & want to experience life together. Our minds are made up no matter what but there are some that don't agree, mainly friends our age. Most of them were married because of a pregnancy. We don't have any children & i'm waiting until i'm married to have sex (my belief), whereas he had experience before me but he respects my morals. I think it depends on a personal feeling. If you feel you're ready & it feels right then i say go for it. :)

jmie19 4 years ago

i'll be 20 this coming august.my teacher once said that its the right age to get married.i really want to have my own family and i love babies!

but i've decided to make myself a better person first,enjoy my youth and independence,make the things that i want to do while im still single and see the world before settling down.no need to rush things and have regrets afterward.

24 for women and 27 for men.men should be 3-5 years older than women.at this age they are emotionaly,mentaly,physicaly and financialy ready.

make your partner your better half.complete each other.

be the best mom/dad to your children.afterall,part of them is 'you'.

focus on your husband/wife and children.you're not on your own anymore,all the things that you'll do will also affect them.

2 every u'v got not 2 b afraid cos marriage is a guarantee.NevaDless,v heard lots laying emphazies on finance,xperience & age respectively all d same.But i think in respect 2 finance u jx dn't need 2 v d whole world,atleast if u r blessed beyond barchelorhood i guess u v no reason nt getin married.Also,i heard people laying emphazies on xperience.By d way a man dat live witout a wife up til 40 wat xperience is he looking 4ward 2?when he's financially ok.Men..... i think he's fooling himself.Finally,in d case f age i think it's proper 4 a man&woman 2 get married on time cos effect(+or-) bounce back 2 ur kids in many way eg. physically,mentally or otherwise.4 me men 25-30 & women 20-25.CHEERS! 2 all contributors.

I think there is no right age for marriage but then marriage is for people who are well matured, who understand what they are getting themselves to.Usually females get matured earlier than man.

nellymonicah1 4 years ago from germarny

am 26 and am getting married next year to a man i have grown to love for the past 2yrs,he is 36,and i just feel he is the man i need to settle down with and start a family,i think maturity is a serious factor to consider while getting married,both of you need to know wot ur getting yourselves into,there is no need to get married at 15 or 18 only to break up at 27 or separate at 30 just becouse you dint take time to really think it over and be sure of what you really want.but i do agree evrybody has opinions,we all have diffrent views about everything and il say good luck to everybody.hope u find wot ur looking for in life.

Today couples do have more then 2 kids then I guess its ok to marry late. Earlier women use to have anywhere between 6 to 12 childrens, I remember my grandparents had kids even in their 40s. What fertile generations they belonged to.
