    I totally think its dependent on the person. for instance, my brothers are 24 and 22 and they are nowhere near ready for marraige (though the 24 year old is in a serious relationship) but my husband was 25 (he turned 26 on our honeymoon) and i think he was more ready than ever.

     I voted 27-30

    I voted 27-30.  Fiance will be 28 at our wedding!

    I think, like you said, that it really depends on the person and their maturity level, situation, etc.

    It really depends on the guy. My husband was 26, but was ready for marriage a few years before that. My brother is 30 and not ready for marriage. He’s definitely mature, but just doesn’t want to settle down yet, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

    I voted 24-26 considering Darling Husband was (and is) 25 when we got married. Even before we started dating he knew that he wouldn’t want to get married before he was 25. I don’t think he ever thought that he would be in a 6+ year relationship by that point. We’re both content with the age that we married.

    I voted 24-26. Fiance will be 25 at our wedding. It’s a good number for us because he’s well established in his career, got a good footing in life and he feels ready. It might be a different age for a different man, but him being 25 works for us.

    I voted 24-30. Hubby and I started dating when he was 23, and got married when he was 25. He will be 27 when we have our first baby. It all fit him well. I mean he’s not as mature as he could be, but we always have growing up to do don’t we 😉 He’s a really great man and my family loves him. 

    My Brother-In-Law was 27 when he married my sister. And my older brother was only 20 when he got married – I think 20 is way too young for a guy (not necessarily a girl if she’s marrying someone older than her), but he really made it work for him. Now he is almost 26 though and he says he wishes he would have waited a little longer. 

    I think what is most important, at least it was for me, is that the man is old enough/mature enough to support me. I was 20 when I married my 25-y/o husband, but he already had a masters degree and could support me while I finished school.

    Darling Husband was 22 when we were married and I think it was perfect for him.

    However, many of our friends of the same age are just now starting to want serious relationships that will end in marriage, so he is a bit of an anomaly.

    I think you’re not going to get very scientific results since all of us are voting for whatever age our Fiance is.  🙂

    I think it depends on the individual, but I’d say 27-30. My husband was 27 when we got married and he seemed very settled into who he was and comfortable with being committed at the time, when all of his friends were still trying to get to that place. My dad was 21 when my parents got married and they’re on year 27, so it really is up to the person!

    I have no idea. Whenever he feels ready.

    After he’s had time to “play” and it’s not gender specific IMO. Most typically that’s after college (and or all other schooling), and some establishment in a career. This takes most people 25-30 years to accomplish. Therefore I think the ideal age for all people (men and women) to marry is in and around mid-late 20’s

    I mean I think it totally depends on the guy, as some mature much faster than others.

    But I voted for 27-30. Darling Husband was a little over a month shy of his 27th birthday when we got married and I think this was a good age for him. I met him when he was 22 and he was definitely not ready for marriage between 22-25!
