    I will go with, THIS!

    I think after 25, the age doesn't matter as much as how much you have going for you. If you have a good foundation and find someone compatible, then you're good to go. (if you want to get married that is).
    Lower back rehab~ Oh well.

    Getting married is like having hip replacement surgery. You put it off for as long as you possibly can. For as long as you possibly can.

    Just judging from what I've seen around me, I think marriage and parenthood are great things as long as they are done at the right time w/the right people.
    I do snatch pulls in the gym so I can do snatch pulls in the bars. And I ALWAYS use a hook grip.

    Meaning you probably shouldn't marry the last stripper that gave you a lap dance. Shop around a little. There are some really good strippers out there.

    I'm going to say that age is irrelevant. You have to have the mental maturity and meet the right person. For some, this will happen sooner...for others, it may never happen.

    You're too smart for this thread!

    Haha...the general rule is that there are no general rules. We can all find exceptions to every generalization and examples of people who got married young and stayed happy while others got married "older" and didn't.

    I hope it last. (serious)

    My parents have been married now for 46yrs.
    Hers was married, divorced, back together, married again, divorced again, married again, divorced again, and now live together unhappily.

    You see where I messed up?

    Never marry for looks. My ex is gorgeous. However, she has snakes in her head.

    Got married at 24. Getting divorced now. I doubt I'll ever get married again.

    In general, I would advise the younger population to wait as much as possible. If you are in love and want to live together, do it, and live together at least a couple of years before you consider marriage.

    I selected the "30-35" option, but, I don't think there's an ideal time to get married per se. It all depends on how ready both partners are, financially, psychologically, sexually, and even academically.
    Ultimate goal: to engage in a healthy lifestyle which I can sustain and enjoy for
    the rest of my existence. No "diets", no "cycles". Just constantly improve.

    Let no one persuade you by word or deed to do or say whatever is not best for you.

    I got married at 23. Wife was only 19. We didn't have a clue. We've had a few rough patches but all-in-all I feel damn lucky things have worked out as well as they have. It could have been a disaster since we were too young to know what the hell we were doing. We did wait over 7 years to start having kids which helped. Gave her time to break me down and beat me into submission

    I think late 20's early 30's.

    I got married when I was 18. Going on 19 years married now. As was stated earlier, it's not the age but the couple's maturity that's important. Granted not many 18 year olds are very mature but both my wife and I knew we were making a life long commitment when we got married. We vowed to never even mention the D word at our house and eventhough we've had some rough patches, looking back I can still say it was the best decision I could have ever made.

    Ahem....before those of us that have been married for a significant amount of time (22yrs for me... and 24yrs together) get carried away with patting ourselves on the back for being so...um..mature, lofl, let's look at some other realistic reasons why some couples happen to still be together after say, 15yrs, shall we?

    Don't know where else to go.
    Have never really known another man/woman.
    Have been emotionally raped and otherwise mistreated.
    Religious beliefs.
    Simple case of familiarity and comfort level.
    Money.
    Material "things" accumulation.
    The promise or hope of spouse's inheritance.
    Threatened not to leave (mentally or physically).
    Self esteem issues.
    Isolation factor(s).

    And the list goes on. Sad, but true in countless cases. Just sayin'.........

    As you said, sad but true in countless cases. Nevertheless, marriage is a blessing as long as both parties see it that way and strive to work out the kinks. If man and wife can agree on that, the good times WILL outnumber the bad by leaps and bounds.

    At this moment I'd say never for men and women - been married 3 times - it's over rated.
    1st time - I was to young - he was gay
    2nd time - I was stupid - he was an abusive dumb ass
    3rd time - went for father figure - he is bossy and controlling ( I guess I got a
    father figure )

    Don't listen to me I am just having a I wish I wasn't married day.

    There's no perfect age everyone is different.

    I'm going to say that age is irrelevant. You have to have the mental maturity and meet the right person. For some, this will happen sooner...for others, it may never happen.
    I agree with this.
    I met my wife at 22 and she was 19. I did my time in the clubs and was ready to take on a serious relationship. I still went out every now and then. I met her at a club and we moved in together after a couple of weeks.

    She was great. The best girlfriend ever but I still waited four years to pop the question. I think this is the key part here. Too many people get married too fast. She was awesome but I wanted to see if that would change over time. She was and is still the same person I met years ago.

    Today is actually our 9th wedding anniversary and our 13th of being together.

    You can vote what age you think like I did but it all comes down to the mentality of the persons getting married.

    I agree that age really has nothing to do with it. It's almost like asking what's the best age to start having children. It really depends a lot on your life situation, your maturity, and other factors.

    I got married at age 27, I would have never been married before that. My wife and I didn't have our first child until we were 32. Most parents with kids our age are younger than us, but I would never have made a good father at age 28. I just wasn't ready.
