    I dont think that there is such thing as appropriate age, I think its when you have known someone long enough that they get on your nerves sometimes u find out there pet peeves and what makes them tick.You also learn how to take all their imperfections and love.them.It is good to know alot about the other person,their passions their dreams /goals,when you feel that they are a part of u, thats when its right.it is just a matter of how well you know them and how much you love them after you know them that counts.Age in my opinion doesnt matter,my mom married when she was 17 and my parents were like newlyweds all the time they were married  and my dad still loves her with all of us his heart, although my mom passed away.He still smiles and talks about her all the time and tells stories about when they met

    It depends more on the society you belong to. It varies with every society. In common its 23 to 28 for boys and girls to get married. Marrying before that could be considered as not very matured and after that would be considered as late marriage.

    This is just my opinion, but I would recommend that people wait until late 20's and even 30's.  This gives people time to get themselves established and have the freedom and space to grow personally before taking on the additional responsibilities of dependents etc.  People who are healthy and well adjusted tend to find and be better partners.  My second marriage is amazing, I was 32.  My first one I was early 20's and not fully prepared or established.  By my 30's I was more mature and infinitely more patient.  Most people in their early 20's especially are not as mature as they like to believe they are.

      so you think, maturity has a lot do with age right?

      In most cases, yes it does.  Age brings perspective from life experience that most young people don't have.  That is why marriages with young people have high failure rates and older people tend to divorce less.

    Before 36 for women and before 40 for men. That is when everyone has stable jobs and more cash, deeper relationship

    It's really not about age as much as it's about being mature, knowing what traits you want/need in a mate in life to choose the "right mate" for oneself.
    The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the marriage that you do, naturally agrees with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least have a mutual depth of love and desire for one another.
    Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys!
    It also helps to be financially sound and have established a career path.
    Being ready finding the right person is more important than one's age. However generally speaking for most people to figure out themselves well enough to know who they are and want they want, complete their education, and establish a career path to support marriage and family it's not uncommon for them to reach their late 20s or early 30s before being ready. Of course it all depends on what level of life the individual wants to live.
    In my opinion choosing to bring children up in poverty crime infested environment is similar to child abuse. One should want to be the best possible position before starting a family.

    I'm not an authority, but my personal belief is that adults experience the greatest amount of change in their twenties until their mid - thirties, and have generally found their final direction in their mid - thirties.
       My first wife and I married in our mid - twenties, and over the course of several years, changed in opposite directions, to the point where we were no longer compatible, as we had been when we first married.
       I remarried at 44, and have been married, very happily for 15 yrs.
