    Depends on the culture as different cultures hold different values.

    Once they have lived a little and accomplished some goals of their own.

    I think probably when she feels it is right for her. It will depend on whether she has met the right person to spend the rest of her life with, whether she has achieved her goals (as pretty said), and whether she wants to get married at all. I have a few friends who are happy living with their long term partner, but don't want the hassle of a wedding to organise (especially with the costs).

      So do you mean that wedding has no much importance in life?

      I think it depends on your own life experience. A number of my friends mentioned above witnessed their parents go through very messy divorces; for them, marriage holds a lot less value. I guess its personal choice, not everyone wants marriage.

      You have exactly ansered to my question by including even the age limits. Good answer.

      However age is not always the best indicator. There are a lot of "immature" people over the age of 27. There is no substitute for (being prepared and mature) enough to take on the responsibilities that come with marriage and family.

      With a lot of people being worldly wise at a young age, a 22 yr old is not so naive. It's the maturity that counts. Around here, in Africa we see a lot of girls getting married at 18, 20 and above and they've kept their homes.

    It's not so much about (the right time) as it is (the right person)!
    The number one cause for divorce in my opinion is selecting the wrong mate.
    One needs to have done the necessary introspective thinking to figure out what it is they want, need, and desire from a mate for life. The next step is to determine if you (naturally) agree on the important things and how to obtain them for your marriage. Ideally you should also have discussed finances and long-term plans.
    "There is no amount of (communication) or (work) that can overcome being with someone who does not want what you want."
    Hopefully they have both completed their education and embarked on marketable career paths. Awhile back I wrote a hub: 5 Reasons Why Men Should Not Get Married. These same five reasons would apply for women as well. http://dashingscorpio.hubpages.com/hub/ … et-Married

      Your answer is a good one and the points included are very useful.

    When she is ready. There is no ther answer as no one gets to decide what another person does.

    Once they meet the right person, fall in love and are ready to take on the responsibilities of marriage, being a wife and possibly a mother. I do not believe in teenage weddings, but sometimes they are successful.

    When she feels ready, no matter how old or how young! Many of my family and friends were surprised or even disapproving that I decided to get married at 22, but my husband and I were both 100% certain that we were right for each other and that taking the step to be together was the right decision.

    Being emotionally mature enough to understand what being married means and the responsibilities which come with it is essential. Finding the right person is a key factor too. I'd never have dreamed I would marry so young - I was just lucky enough to find another person who enriched my life. Marriage was the natural outcome.

    when she finds the one who will provide everything for her because she has decided that she will provide everything for him.

    25-29. At that age I guess, one is prepared mentally, physically, and financially to settle down.

    The age 25-28 is best for marriage. There should be some age left for romance.

    Hello Kevin Peter, very interesting question.. I think the right time for women to get married is when you meet the right person.. It's not about age, its about love and finding the right person - who understands you and respect your feelings.. Kevin sometimes getting married soon without finding the right person results in fights and then divorce with broken hearts.. But I would say that it doesn't mean that we should wait for too long.. There is a right time for everything and we should also follow the rules of nature that is getting married on time to live happily thereafter.

    Once they are matured enough to know what it means to say 'i do'.

    As a twice married woman with a successful and loving second marriage, I believe that a woman - and a man - are ready for marriage when each are mentally and emotionally stable; when both are totally comfortable living a single life; when each knows and understands what is important to them in a lifemate; when they have truly had the chance to get to know each other over the course of time (the amount of time will vary). 

    I don't believe that the achievement of goals prior to marriage is important for either a woman or a man.  With the support of a loving spouse, each can go on to achieve goals and create new goals together.  While money and job security are nice, I don't believe them to be necessary for a strong and loving marriage.
