    If we're considering that a certain sensibleness and maturity reaches us all at the same age - it doesn't, but this is hypothetical - I'd say around twenty-five.  This way you'll still be relatively young when your kids and even your grandchildren are grown up.  With luck, you might even get to nurse your great grandchildren.

    By twenty-five you'll have got most of your travelling adventures and casual romances 'off your chest,' and will be seriously involved in  working towards owning  a home, having a meaningful social life, and be established in a career.   

    I don't think there is any particular relevance between whether people are from Europe, Africa, Asia, or America.  The point is that one needs to be physically, mentally, and spiritually fit and still improving - and with  dreams of improving further - at an age when one marries.   And of course, we're talking of the optimal age here; this 'ideal' age your asking about.

      25? Wow! Most people I know at that age were either just finishing college or still trying to establish a career path. Very few were in a position to do any traveling & the majority barely had any real dating experience to know what they want.

      Time's HAVE changed!  I was 23 my wife 21 when we married.   My six years in the Navy satisfied much travel and relationships both casual and serious.  By 24 I was established in my career.  Three kids by the time we were thirty.  25 - Great age!.

      Tom, Actually by today's standards you would be "the exception".
      Many kids today at 25 are living with their parents, working McJobs and saddled with several thousands of dollars in college loans debt.
      The military forces one to grow up. smile

    Finding the right mate & being prepared are more important than age.
    Nevertheless maturity and wisdom does tend to come with life/dating experience. Completing one's education, establishing a career, and doing some serious introspective thinking to figure out not only who you are but what it is you want and need in a mate are very important.
    In my opinion the top two reasons why people get divorced are:
    1. They chose the "wrong mate" for themselves.
    This happens when one allows "impulsive connections" and "happenstance" to dictate their relationship choices. They really never had a "mate selection process".
    It's the equivalent of going shopping without a list!
    2. They got married for the "wrong reasons".
    Examples are they had an "age goal" to be married by, all of their friends were married, an ultimatum was given, an unplanned pregnancy, prospective spouse is rich/successful, one person is in the military and about to be deployed, parents are applying pressure, got tired of the status of being "single" and felt the need to have a relationship "go somewhere"...
    A marriage based around (circumstances) is likely to fail.
    The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship 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.
    While I do believe one's cultural traditions and location can effect one's mindset it's important to remember: Life is a (personal) journey.
    You should not get married until (you feel ready) to be married.
    Some people don't find "the one" until later in life.
    It's also important to note there is nothing wrong with never getting married!

      Oh, that we had such patience, discrimination and wisdom, eh?  We'd all be so happy.  But where would be the challenges of learning the values that unsatistfactory relationships provide?

    In your 20s.
    When you marry below the age of 20, you have very high rates of divorce, physical abuse to due poor relationship skills and nearly guaranteed poverty because you haven't finished an education and job skills to earn a living.
    When you pass 30, a woman's fertility drops and her ability to find a decent partner drops due to increased competition (he can marry younger women, she's less attractive).

      From that answer, Tamara, one can deduce an age of around 20 to 29 for women, at least.  And as women are generally more mature than men in earlier life, around  25 to 35 for men - your views?
