    well, since I got married just after turning 23, I don’t think waiting until 25 is the best choice for everyone.

    But I do think you should at the bare minimum be out of high school. Preferably, though, you’ll go to college, live on your own for a while, get a little life experience before getting married. {engagement I don’t care as much…since a wedding could always be a ways off}

    I don’t know about 25, I was 23 when we got engaged (turned 24 about 20 days later.)  My thoughts on the appropriate age is a) you need to finish college and get a job or b) have a job and know you can support yourself if you ever need to.  Thinking about these things really makes you consider what marriage is. 

    And FYI, Rachael and Fin do not have either of these things.

    Depends on the circumstances – you can be 25, unemployed, no degree, not settled down at all. Whilst you can be younger than 25, just finishing college, getting ready to be in a full time job, etc.

    I despise Glee, but I think you placing an age on being ready to get married is wrong. Someone younger than 25 (20, say) can be more mature than some 25 year olds and more stable.

    I don’t think they are too young because of their actual age but because of their emotional maturity.

    Hmm I think “too young” is really dependent on the individuals themselves rather than just their age.

    I will say that in this fictional case yes because it is clear that Rachel has hopes and aspirations that she wants to see through before I think she would be ready to settle down. For her I see marriage as something that might hold her back from taking the risks that her dream lifestyle might require.

    @mtnhoney:  Hahaha! Exactly. You don’t even know who YOU are at that point. And that’s coming from someone who got married fairly young (23!)

    Ok, so this is what I think of glee, lol:

    However, yes, if these two characters are still in high school, then they may be too young!  I have been 5 different people since I was a teenager, you know?

    I agree you need to be a certain stage in life where you are settled, this is not a specific age – but definately when you have your own place, pay the bills, earn a wage and are in a happy relationship etc etc

    In high school my hormones hadnt even settled down yet.. let alone settling down into marriage haha
