    It differs for everyone.  I don’t think there is one good age to get married.

    @CherryWaves:  Agreed.

    I will be 24 when I get married and Fiance will be 29.  Most people think I’m still young, but to me, age is just a number.  I have a good job where I can climb up the ladder if I choose to.  FI has a plumbing business.  We’re both very mature.

    It is different for everyone.  I was 23 and Darling Husband was 24.

    But I personally believe that there are very few 18 year olds that are ready for marriage.  (And the fact that you have to ask if you’re ready is a sign to me that you aren’t).

    To me, I feel like I hit maturity at 23. I’ll be married at 26. My Fiance will be 30. Something about it feels right. I did all that I wanted to do as a single woman. I met great men. I graduated. Traveled. Made friends. Broke up with losers. I got what I want done. And now I’m ready to start phase 2.

    While the odds are against you marrying that young, no one can tell you if it’s right or wrong for YOU.

    No one else can no for sure, but research suggests we don’t reach full adult maturity until our mid-twenties, no matter our life experiences, so that’s something to keep in mind.

    When you are old enough to not feel the need to ask if you are old enough.

    I voted maybe only because there is no black and white for something like this. But mostly, no I don’t think 18 year olds are mature enough to make that choice. You barely know who you are at that age!

    I said maybe.  I wasn’t personally ready at 18 though!  I’ll be 26, my Fi will be 27 when we get married.

    I think if you have to ask you already know. If you honestly knew it was right for you others opinions would not matter.

    I got married when I was 19. I am 21 now.

    It was the right thing for me. Also I need to add that we had been out on our own for almost a year, living together & paying our own bills. You should be ready for all that marriage comes with. Marriage is more than just sunshine & rainbows. You have to be ready to take the good with the bad. You should know how to “fight” fair. You should know how to handle money. You should make enough money to support yourselves. You should continue to go to school and or work with a secure job that enables a great future. You should talk seriously about life goals & what each person wants as in kids, where you want to live, ect. You should make sure you two have been together long enough to really know the other person. There are so many things you should do/know before getting married. Remember that marriage is serious. I know alot of teenagers dream about their weddings & dream about how amazing marriage life is & how many want it. But remember marriage is more than a romance movie. Alot comes along with it. Be sure you are prepared!

    I don’t know alot of 18 year olds that are ready for marriage to be honest. I know this may sound strange coming from someone who married so young. But I am honest to others about it. I will not tell an 18 year old or 19 year old to get married just because I did.

    I did what was right for me! My husband & I was ready for marriage. We had been together 4 days shy of 4 years when we got married. I knew him, he knew me. We knew what each other wanted in life. We want to share that together. We was already paying for our own bills & home. We know how to handle the good with the bad. We had no fantasy that marriage was this perfect bliss everyday. We knew what the real world was. We lived together almost a year before getting married. We prepared our selves. We didn’t just jump into it. I ask you don’t either. Make sure its the right thing to do. If you love this person & feel you are not ready then wait. Be together & enjoy one another with the relationship you have right now!

    Are you two living together already?

    Do either of you have a job that can afford the cost of living? (House, food, bills, ect.)?

    Do you both know what you want in the future?

    Are either of you in school or plan to start?

    Do you have a plan as to where you two will live?
