    Is it better to be married young (teens or 20s) or wait until at least your 30s (or even later)?

    i find that it is better to wait because you never know when a relationship will fall apart i wanna be good and ready for my first and hopefuloly only marriage, but i do believe having kids in your early 20's is a good idea because by the time they hit 19 you will still be able to have a drink with them. smile

    I think the teens or 20s is too early. There are lot many practical things involved there. Whatever said and done, I would say that a person doesn't start completely maturing till the age of 24-25. At least it is rare as the priorities in late 20s will be different from teenage and early 20s. Any step before that would usually be a childish act.

    However, waiting for too long (late 30s) just keeps your value as a suitable bride or groom going down. I think the ideal age for getting married is late 20s or early 30s when you can still enjoy the beautiful things of a married life.

    It is better to marry when it suits you.

    When you are ready to make a commitment to another person, to work together in life toward your common purpose and happiness, then it is time to get married.
    You know the saying ' there is no time like the present,'  that is because the only sure time we have on this planet is the present, right now.

    Will the marriage work.  As long as the commitment is there, yes.  Some times it is even the right time to get married in your 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's or even 80's.  I think it is just silly to be getting married in your 90's or later, but I read a story in the local newspaper recently about a couple who did this.  They had lost track of each other when younger, survived the loss of spouses and become reunited years later to be married while in their 90's.

    If its a marriage on earth it will face difficult challenges, but life comes with no guarantee.  So be strong, and in the words of Chuck Berry remember, 'you never can tell.'

    It is best to married when you are in love and are ready. There are pros and cons to marrying later in life and earlier on in life, it depends on the couple.

    There is no set age to marry, it depends on the maturity of the people involved. The best time to marry is when both parities are ready, and when you can think of the marriage rather than the wedding.
