I dont think there is a right age per say. I believe that if two people love each other enough and for the right reasons, age doesnt matter.

I am 25 and FH is 28 we are getting married next year but we have been together for 6 yrs.

His grandparents have been together since they were 11 and 12 years old (married at 15 & 16) and are still together to this day.

It all depends on Love.

I am 20 years old, I’ll be getting married in about a month! There is no right age to marry, I agree with @Mrs. Cox. It just depends on when you’re ready, and when you’re in love.

I think that varies for everyone. I would say anything past the age of 18, in general.

I agree there is no right age but I think that you should be able to support yourselves before you get married.  We were married at 21/22 but we are both very mature for our age and already own a house and have been supporting ourselves for the years.

Financially stable enough to be independent and mature enough to know you’re making a smart decision about it.

I also tend to lump a colleg education into that group. I’m a big advocate because everyone I know who got married in lieu of college (“oh i’ll go later!”) ended up making $8 an hour and divorced and broke =(

i think everyone here is right! when you’re old enough to support yourselves, make smart decisions and you’re in love! anywhere from 18 to 80!

I agree with the “no right age”. When you find the perfect person, and you know you want to spend the rest of your life with them, then THATS the right age! I’m still in college, going to be 23, and I am ready. Its different for everyone. 🙂

I think it depends on the person, but I was engaged once when I was 20, never went through with it, again when I was 31, didn’t marry then either.  This time (and this is the winnah!) I’ll be 44 when we get married.  For me, I was SO glad that I didn’t go through with it the two times before.  I, personally, was too young at 20 to know what true love was, at 31..it was a long awaited proposal that by the time I actually got the ring, the relationship wasn’t what I wanted it to be.  In my 40’s now, I know who I am, what my purpose is in life, have a career and am stable and can hold my own if need be, independent of any man.  But again, everyone goes through lifes stages differently.

I agree with the general consensus. It depends on the people, not their age. 

I think a lot of couples/people have individual markers for themselves. For R & I, it was being financially independent and finishing our undergrad. (More the money, I know we would have stuck through school either way.) 

But obviously those don’t work for everyone, and I don’t think that two people who haven’t been to college have any less of a marriage than I will. 

We will both be 22 when we marry, and we’ll have been together for 7 years.

It definitely depends on the people/situation, but I always thought that IF I was to marry, it would be at age 25, and lo & behold, that rang true =)

I also think there is no right age, but I always believed that both people should have enjoyed life before they get married. When I was in the military I would see couple that were both 18 and getting married cause they were just caught up in wanting to be with someone because they missed their family. The sad thing was that I would see them get married and year later see them get a divorce because one person didnt get their “run” out. That’s what my mom calls it! 🙂 I call enjoying life and checking off your I always wanted to do this list. Whatever that might include. 🙂 I think it makes a better relationship when you both can go in saying that you have enjoyed life already but now you want to enjoy life with someone else!

I agree with the bees, there isn’t really a “right” age. I think it depends on when you meet the right person, know you want to spend the rest of your life with them etc.

I’m 26…will be 27 @ wedding, Fiance will be 30. That is our “right” age.
