What is the right age to get married or settle down according to you?

In my opinion, I find the best time to settle down is when someone is done their education and have a stable job but this is not taking into consideration people who are forced to settle down due to their situation.

I think it depends on circumstances, culture and people maturity but I think it's important not to rush into it, earlier than 24 years normally tend to be way to young.

To be honest, I feel it depends on the couple. There's really no right or wrong age, if both people are willing, ready and mature enough to make it work then good for them and go for it. But to ME marriage to me isn't a necessary thing; too much money for one day IMHO. Piece of paper doesn't define a good family dynamic to me, but all the power to everyone else. :)

It really depends on what marriage means to you or how you view relationships. I've always been an extremely loyal person and for me marriage is the declaration of your intent to stay with the person forever and your love for them. For that, there really isn't a wrong age that's legal!

If you view marriage as something different, maybe it'll be different for you.

IMO, people love to tell everyone what makes a marriage work, but plenty of people got married on a bet and are together for 50 years. Yet others are together for 7 years, madly in love, get married and separate within 2 months. You're the best judge of your relationship and your situation, so don't worry about what anyone else thinks!

Your 'best' age to settle down, basically, is whenever you want!

It's totally about what marriage means to you! If it's just a piece of paper, then what's the point for you, so don't sweat it!

That being said, the money thing (while I agree) is not a necessary part of marriage. I spent barely anything on my wedding!

I was one of those people who never believed in marriage, due to my parents past. I from one relationships to another for years only to feel pain. (i had a bad track record)

The day I met my husband was the day I started believing that marriage could work. So to answer your question, I feel that its when YOU feel it's right. There are no time or age that could be set. We actually got married at the worst point in my life. He he choose to marry me anyways. :) It speaks for itself, when you feel that it's the right person. Follow your gut and not worry about age and etc. If it's the right person, you will have a great life to build and make each other a better person as time comes. :)

I think it really depends on the couple. I got married when I was 21, but my husband was 33. Some people would say I got married "too young" and he got married at the "right" age. But that's silly to me. I have known some people that weren't mature enough at 40 to get married, and have known some people to get married in their early twenties that are still together many years later. The couple has to be mutually emotionally mature and understand what marriage really means. You have to be realistic about the hardships you might go through and ask yourself if you're prepared for that. I personally don't think that at 21 I was "too young" to be married, but I also have always been incredibly mature for my age and with a 12 year age difference, there were other factors involved. We were also financially secure enough and had been living together for awhile before we decided to get married. On the other hand, other 21 year olds I have known are nowhere near ready for marriage. I think there's no right age to get married or settled down, but you have to be emotionally mature, financially secure enough to pay rent and bills (don't have to be rich, but being able to support yourself is important), and have to be sure of yourself as an individual before you promise yourself to another person for the rest of your life. Overall, whatever feels right to you is most important. I had to face a lot of cruel comments when I announced I was engaged at 20, but I wouldn't change anything about how old I was when I got married. Do what's best for you and ignore everyone else :)

the right age? on Jun 08, 2016 @ 09:45 pm

For me there is no right age. When love happens it happens. One should never wait and let it pass by. There's always a way to make things work. If one is fairly young, hopefully they will have the love and blessings of their family. If one is old, they should also not let go of what is in their grasp and just be happy whatever comes their way and take a chance at love and being together.

Ideally what you think should be correct. But truthfully the amount of education people need now a days is nuts.
If you wait until you finish school and find a career you could be almost 30'or into your 30's.
I believe if you have a strong head on your shoulder you can definitely get married while finishing school and starting a career .... If you have found love everything else will come together at the right time. I don't think there is a right time per say.
Just follow your heart.

I think it really depends on the couple and when it just feels right to them. Ideally, it would be great if the couple were to be financially stable, but I think for people of my generation that won't happen early, considering how costly education and housing are now.
Personally, I'm 24 and could not imagine being married before I'm 29 -- I just wouldn't feel comfortable. A few of my high school friends recently got married. One couple has been together since grade 9, and the other couple have been together for 2 years. It simply various person to person and I don't think there's a right/same answer for all.
