    It's probably the mid to late 20s on (average) these days. Even then most people aren't really (prepared) to be married at that age.

      That would be among the lower and less educated classes. Among the upper & more educated classes,people are marrying on the average in their early to mid-30s after they've completed their education, have a career, &  explored relationship opt

    People don't seem too in control of their maturity these days, so I would guess late teens to early twenties.

    I would say among the lower classes in America, it is the late teens to middle 20s.  Poorer and less educated Americans have the habit of marrying very early and having children before they are educationally, financially, psychologically, and emotionally prepared.   Also conservative and/or religious Americans tend to marry very early i.e. the teens to middle 20s at the latest. They have stricter, more narrow attitudes as far as lifestyle/relationships options and explorations go.

    More affluent Americans, on the average, marry in their middle to late 20s at the earliest and by their 40s at the latest.  More affluent and educated Americans  believe in experiencing life and being prepared educationally, financially, psychologically, and emotionally before having children.  They believe in bringing up their children in the best of circumstances and with the best of opportunities.  Also more liberal and less religious Americans tend to marry later because of their more liberal attitudes to relationships and lifestyle exploration.

    It's about 28-29 for men and 26-27 for women. In several European countries it is over 30 for men. The U.S. is moving in that direction.
    People in the U.S.are choosing more often to live together because they cannot afford the afford or do the traditional responsibilities of marriage. Like France, they're even having children together without getting married until they have a better income.
    In some U.S. ethnic groups over half the population does not get married.
