right age to marry?

What do you think is the right age to get married? If any

from my experience I believe the best age to get married is around 27. Purely because I think at that age you should ideally know what you want to do with your life, in terms of job, house etc. If you're lucky enough to be with the perfect Mrs making decisions could be easier.

I am 27 now and have been with the Mrs since we were both 20, no plans for marriage from me though. She'd like to, but theres no way I'd ask at this moment it time.

I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

People change hugely in their early-mid 20's so I think around 25-30 is probably ideal but there's certainly no rule for it. Some people are just lucky enough to find their ideal partner when they're younger and make it work. I've got friends who were together at 18, married a few years later and are still happy with 4 kids at 40 years old.

You don't have to get married in a church or say anything remotely religious.

Don't do it in a church? I don't like church weddings if the couple getting married aren't religious....it's a bit of a joke.

Same with christenings etc

Ive been with my girlfriend for 11 years, Im 30 she's 29 (we're not married). Our relationship has changed for the better in the last 3/4 years. I dont know why. I think the amount of time you're together 1st is as important as the age you get married. Mid 20s i think

agree with the church thing, i would never do it, and my children haven't been christened.
 
as for marriage, well mine is in 4 weeks and i'm 33. right age for me, mrs is 27. been together over 10 years - I think that is more important these days, seems like a few too many guys get married too quick then separate after a few years. If you've been together 5+ years, then its the right time to think about it IMO.

Yes she was stupid.... But I think after a while it dawned on her that I was just never ever going to ask her...

No right age to marry. I have done it twice. Once in my early 20's and then at 30. The first one felt right at the time although looking back might have been due to rosetinted glasses. After that fell apart I honestly didnt think I'd go through it again ever. When I met my current wife everything just fell into place and marrying her was the best thing I have done. How and when isn't important really its who that matters.

I'm hitting my 30's, and I couldn't even begin to imagine being married and/or having kids.
 
A few of my mates who are 28/29 have just gotten or are about to get married and have / about to have kids and it just seems a million miles off from where I am. For me I think I you're going to spend the rest of your life with one person A) why do you need to get married to do that (although yes I know there are certain financial advantages) but B) if you get married at 27/28 you've still got probably 45/50 or more years of your life left and I think people find it hard to look in to the future and actually try and comprehend that's twice as long as you've already lived for.... so what's the rush.
 
Each to their own of course, but that's my view on it

When you are 100% certain you have met the right person, age is not relevant.
 
Anyway, nothings forever, if you get it wrong you can always bail out and try again.
 
I think it's much more important not to have kids until absolutely certain beyond any doubt you are with the person you want to stay with for the rest of your life.
