What is the perfect age for a woman to get married?

    What is the perfect age for a woman to get married?

    My daughter asked me this question and I am not sure what the best age to get married is. What you think? How old should the bride be to be a good wife and mother?

    There is no perfect age. Each woman (and man) is different. (In fact, it depends on the couple.) Is the couple in love? Are they both mature enough? Are they both ready for the responsibilities of a home? And so on.

    I don't think there is a perfect age for a woman to get married. The more important thing is when the perfect match comes along then it's time to think about marriage. A marriage becomes meaningless if one finds a wrong partner and worse if there are children involved. Some people get married when they were mere teenagers, but the relationship lasts more than 7 decades and is still going strong. So I believe the right time to get married is when you fall in love with the one who loves you the same.

    It's not about age as it is being truly prepared for that type of commitment as well as having one's house in order to give themselves the best chance of succeeding. Most marriages fail become people select the wrong mate for themselves. This often happens when one has not figured out who they them self are, what they want, or need in a mate. Essentially they have not experienced enough life or have done the necessary introspective thinking. Lack maturity & discipline. Still want to party like they are single.
    Another leading cause for divorce is getting married for the "wrong reasons". This may vary from an unplanned pregnancy, an ultimatum was given, someone is being shipped off to war, "all my friends are getting married", it's an age goal, or What the hell? (might as well)...etc
    Last but not least having no sound plan for the future often leads to divorce. People get married without having an education or training to establish a career path, start having children before they can afford to care for them, carrying large amounts of debt and hope their parents will rescue them or it will magically take care of itself. Stress on top of learning to share your life with someone is too much to bear for a lot of folks.

    I told my daughter it is between 21 - 30 when she has started her career. The reason is because it is better to have kids before getting too old so that she can witness her kids to be married.

    When she feels ready and if she's really wants to, not because others want her to or think she is 'ready' or because her 'biological clock is ticking'.  Some women are great mothers at 16, some older and some will never be a good mother!

    I think there is no perfect or specific age to get married. Getting married to the right person that you love is the best thing that could ever happen. You get married when you are ready to settle down and have kids but also you have to think if you are able to provide for a family of your own or not.

    My mother always told me to get married when I was 26, which is when she got married. However, I always wanted to get married around 24. I wanted to share time with my partner. For him to be involved with my college life and to keep me grounded in who I was at that time. So far it's worked. But mainly it comes down to their psychological intelligence, time management skills, maturity, etc. Can they handle it? Do they get along with their partner? How do both of them handle stress and arguments? Etc.
    However, if someone does get married their first year out of high school or as a freshmen in college, they aren't ready.

    on my high school years, I remember my teacher said (in her opinion), the best age to get married is 27. But for me, there's no perfect age to get married.

    It's best to get married if you found your love of your life and feel that he loves you as you do.

      lol, I'm guessing your teacher got married around 27?  People who insist there is an ideal age always seem to pick their own marriage age as the best number.  Never fails to amuse me.

    Everyone matures at different rates so you can't really go by age. Some are ready at a young age and know they are in love. I know marriages that have lasted 50 plus years and the partners married in their teens.

    She may be mature enough but is her partner? If they are both ready and feel committed to one another that is the main thing.

    As most have said here..there is no age.  However, probably best to be at least out of your teens, and if you are very young have a long engagement.

    this is a interesting question. actually my college friends wants to conduct a discussion about the same question. in my opinion, the best time for marriage of women is when they become mature both mentally and physically....

    There is a very small window, between the ages of 18 and 112.  It is important that you not miss this short interval or else you will find yourself  an old maid at 113!

    She should be 26 or 27 to get married so by the time she has kids of her own she will be mature enough to cope with her challenges ahead
