    Twenty-six is a fine age to get married.

    I waited until I was 29 and never had children (yet). I am now married, happily going on 3 years and have 3 wonderful step-children that I call my own. I don't believe there is a specific age to marry, but I think you should be well adjusted to life and somewhat financially secure before taking the big step.

    26-30 would be a good age to get married. Reaching maturity around that age.

    no matter what your age, i think marriage is completely overrated. you could be 18, you could be 50. chances are, it's not going to work out anyway. sooo, i'd say never smile

    Whenever you are ready.

    I was single at 38, married at 39 and had a family of four at the age of 42. I only have one regret I will not be fit enough to keep up with my children six to eight years from now.

    On the plus side I make better decisions being older and that is good for my children.

    When you are mature enough...None knows for sure, but if you fell into the swimming pool you will swim wink

    But if you want to start a family I think 35 is the max especially for women.

    I think "never" is a good age smile  What's the point?  I mean, is it really necessary to be "legally" bound to another person?  The bind and relationship should be between you and the other person. I don't see a need for the government or religion to be involved.  At the end of the day, you can't turn to the government to help you resolve a "marital" issue smile

    Once you've found the person who makes you happy of course.  There's no way to predict anything else and age doesn't mean a thing because each individual is different. They say if you get married too young you are still finding yourself and change happens quickly and so do your wants but they also say if you wait too long your pickings get slim and so does your patience and your list of criteria.

    No such thing as a best age.  There is no set age for maturity because people mature at different ages.  When anyone gives you a particular number or a range when you should be married, they don't know what they are talking about.  Or they have no idea on marriage and what it's like to have this type of a commitment.  They are merely following the crowd and all the spoon fed romance crap.  In reality, it is so easy to bail when a marriage goes south.  I was married at 28, divorced at 42 and re-married at 49.  My attorney told me that when you marry for the second time, you know what you're getting.  No kidding.  Don't let anyone tell you when marriage is the right time for you or what is the best age is for a man or a woman to marry.  You decide whether you stay single or go at life with another person.  You have choices.  I wouldn't wish a divorce on anyone, but if you have to bail, you bail.

    There is no best age to get married. When you are emotionally, financially and physically ready, go tie the knot and have a blast.

    I do not think there is a best/right age to get married. One should get married when he/she is ready for it. and when you know you are ready to spend your life with the person you love.

    As soon as you feel that are ready. Age and maturity cannot be confined to a particular age-group. It varies for different people.

    For me there's no such age to dictate when you will be married. As long as you are ready and their is someone whom you think worth to spend the rest of your life with, then you got get married. Age, does not matter. Maturity and readiness in handling the situation so.

    The best age to get married is when you and the other person feel it is the right move.

    The BEST age to get married would be after you're through with post-high
    school education - and you've got consistent multiple streams of income
    coming in from your job or investments.

    Married is NOT meant for immature people - and money constitutes
    a significant part of marital stability as well. Most marriages break-up
    because of the financial burden, and selfishness.

    I married at the age of 19 and have had no problems. It depends ALOT on your maturity and the person who you want to marry.  I personally matured at a young age. I also am a person who wants to experience life with someone special to me. That is what I have done, and I am having the best time in my life!!! My husband and I also kept our virginity for marriage, and that is something very special for a marriage. And just by the way, marriage is NOT over-rated.

    The best age to get married is at any point in adulthood when a person is spiritually and emotionally mature.

    When they know and have practiced basic relationship-maintenance skills (like learning safe driving before getting in a car) and when they have realistic expectations about the reality and incredible benefits of the kind of healthy, long term relationship, that we were designed to be in as human beings.

    I got married at 23 which was ideal for me. 24 years later and I am still married. Good going in this day don't you think?

    Maturity plays a great part in knowing whether or not you're ready. People mature at different age. Some at 18, while some matures late into their 30s or even 40s, lol.

    Also making sure you are spiritually and emotionally ready for the roller-coaster of joining your life with another. And don't forget, the 'money part', don't get married unless you're ready to take care of 'the bills'.

    Marriage takes 'WORK', so if you're the type who bails out easily, or expect the other person to do all the work, then you may be better off with your parents, living in their basement, permanently. Because marriage is not for the lazyboy type.

    So I'll say, marry when you know you can take the heat. It's a lifetime commitment.

    I got married at age 22 and looking back I think I was too immature. I feel that I wasn't mature enough at that time to understand the complexities of the female mind. If you and your spouse-to-be are both mature enough to handle the responsibilities that marriage brings then you may be a good candidate if indeed you are both in a positive financial situation that allows you to do so without straining the relationship. A lot of people's marriage has endured the problems associated with a younger aged marriage. If on the other hand, you feel that either one of you is not fully matured or financially secure and able to handle the complications to come then you both should consider waiting. If you are truly in love and need to wait until you are both mature and financially secure, then waiting won't be an issue. The opposite holds true.

    Most younger adults believe they are mature and are not mature at all, if you know what I mean! That is why it is best to speak to mature adults that have no affilation with you, your spouse-to-be, and have nothing to gain or loose or any interests in either on of your lives and speak to them about this. Speaking to a professional family counselor, Pastor, or even a Pychiatrist may be  a direction you may take just to make sure there is a neutral party.  You don't need someone leading you in a direction which may be for there own benefit and not your own.

    depends on your culture.. many cultures marry off at  age 12 or 13 and those married couples live long healthy marriages.

    I honestly believe between 25-27 are the best ages. You go through so many changes before then and it is nice to have learned who you are before adding another person to create the person you are with them. At this age too, you've given yourself a chance to be independent and that goes a long way.

    I think against my will , the right age to get married is around your 20.

    Some people who think about money first and higher standard start around 40 or less...

    But i don't think they're happy.

    You can't be called a Woman completely if you haven't experience bearing a child..
    and having a family..

    Kids makes your life complete ..
    And that is the way the circle of life should be... cause in the end it's not really about in material things like our false beliefs ..
