one of my old friends from primary school is getting married soon. they're both almost 20.
i personally think that it's a little too young to be married.
what is the right age? i guess there really isn't but just want to know everyone opinion!!

plus them getting married makes me feel old... :( poop

I'm only 19 ( Myles is 18 ) and we plan on marrying sometime before the end of the year or perhaps spring of next year. ^_^- That'll make me 20 and him 19.
My parents were around the same age as well. My mom had just turned 20 and my father was 20 as well. Of course, they had me pop out 4 months later. xD!

One of my good friends just got married. He was 21 at the time and his wife was 20.

It probably depends on who is getting married to whom...

28 is the right age.

My friends sister is barely 20 and she's married and pregnant for the second time. I think that's kind of crazy, but she's happy so it doesn't matter.

Eh, I don't think 19/20 is too young if they're really happy, which all of my married friends seem to be after almost two years. *pokes Cid*

I, personally, would rather wait. I'm not sure why; you'd have to ask BJ about that.

My boy and I plan to get married; if it were solely up to him, we would be married now. I think I'm going to wait until I turn 21 -- I'll be just out of college and either pursuing grad school or settled down with a career. Either way, my life should be fairly stable by then and I should know what I want to do with it. Hopefully. He'll be 23, then. ^_^ I think that's a good age for us.

One of my friends is married, though -- she got married at 18. She's happy; that's a good age for her. However, I know people that are 24 and are not in the least ready for marriage. Whenever you're emotionally ready for that kind of dedication and statement, then it's a good age. And of course, you need to find a suitable person :)

Yeah, what Jojo said. If you're both happily in love and you have the maturity, emotional stability, and the will, then it's right for you. All relationships have rough patches; the true tests are how you handle those times.

One of my cousins is married, he's 23 and has been married for about a year now, if memory serves. Another of my cousins is getting married this July, I believe she's 22 or so. I'd probably wait until I was a bit older, but you never know.

hhmm, as Shlup said; i don't think its too young if their both happy. If i could afford it i'd get married now :) but...i can't, but when i can *shakes fist* :)

Whenever you both feel ready, and agree, and are in a good situation and it's what you both want and stuff. My mum got married when she was about 21..I don't think you can put any particular age on it, just depends on the people.

01-21-2005, 11:44 AM
I'd say like 23 or 24, but whenever the two people who love each other are ready.

Got married at 23, and I don't see an issue for me; however, 20 seems young, because at age 20, I couldn't have supported myself finacially, I was relying on my parents to pay for my bills, and studies didn't leave me time to work.

I'd prefer 20 < marriage < 24.
(That's 20 or more but less than 24 [years of age]).

When you have enough dough to support your wife's shopping sprees, that's when.

01-21-2005, 09:36 PM
At least 24, for me.

01-21-2005, 10:34 PM
I'd say 25 and up. By then your lifes starting to settle down and you know who you are. The younger you are the more likely a breakup in your relationship. If you've lived a long happy reationship for at least a year maybe, you've learned how to handle arguments and to confront them like adults and you trust each other then you're ready to get married. My opinion ofcourse.

thats pretty much what it's like for me. i couldn't imagine having the money for a wedding now. i don't think i will till i'm about 25 since i plan to stay at uni till i'm 23.
i just dunno....they've been together for 3 years but i've always thought that 5 years is the best time to be with a partner before the word marriage should arise...but i'm a grouch! :oscar: heehee
