    its hard to say what the right age is.i will tell you this,i got engaged when i was 18 and she was 17!when she graduated from high school we got married.everyone told us we were too young and it would never last.we celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary in july!all the people who told us it wouldnt last has been married and divorced by now some of them twice!maybe the ones who tell you your friend is making a mistake are the ones that feel insecure in thier own abilities to maintain a relationship of thier own!one thing though,get an education first,even if that includes college ! you need to establish your own life before you start one with someone else!

    Well not to make this a sore subject but, i'm 15 and im getting engaged to my boyriend. But for us to get married we are waiting untill we are out of high school, have our college done and have nice steady jobs to support us and a family when weare ready for one. But honestly, i thinkwe took the more mature route on this.

    The age 15 is too young for you've just start to live, and grow there is no age time on marriage but some people set thet their own time frame for certains ages if you are under 25 i say it is too youg because at that age some people have not fully grown and are not ready to settle down with one woman, but again this is hard to tell because at 30 life just begins and at 40 you're in your semi-prime and at 50 you're in the prime of your life so it is hard to tell

    Just that so many end up in divorce, at least you both have had enough time to have little love affairs and find someone that you can settle down with.

    I'm not sure...depends if the people are ready for marriage at whatever age..just not extremely young..15s a bit too young. 18-20 is a little better

    honestly, I guess it depends on what age you fall in love with someone. I really don't think that there is a set age for marriage.

    Depends on the couple. I got married when I was 18 and have now been married for 8 years but there are other couples who are in their 30s and they are only married for a few years.

    If you want to get married then get married! But I dont think you should get married before you're 18 cause you aint got that mutch experience in relationships then..

    Maybe at 23 years old... I don't know, only when you think you're ready to get married.

    Middle twenties I'd say....but that's just my opinion, it depends how you feel and all.. If everything went perfect in my life I’d be married around 25, must meet a guy first lol

    I don't really think there is an appropiate age for marriage. As long as both of them are committed and mature about it, I think it would last.

    marriage might work for some people, but i have no intention of ever getting married. in many cases getting married makes you feel tied to that person, which may cause you to pull away. plus, when you think about marriage, what exactly is it? you're promising to love and be with someone for the rest of your life. surely you've changed your mind obout something before. whos to say you wont change your mind now and decide you don't love that person anymre? like i said, marriage works for some people but i could never make a promise like that.

    I got married at 19 and i still feel that it was the best decission i have ever made, but I'm one of the lucky ones that got the perfect Husband...well... he's not perfect but he's the greatest man that i have ever met. I think that it is a maturety thing, not an age thing!!! :)

    I don't think it should be determined by age but by how much the two people love each other. When it comes to love, there should be no boundries.

    the most appropriate age is the age that you are when you decide youve found the right person for you, and are willing to spend the rest of your life with that person no matter what happens.

    it depends on maturity if you look at the divorce rate it seems many never ready or mature....I 've seen young marriages that last and some married in their 60 and they divorced

    I don't think there IS an appropriate age, as with any relationship, it takes maturity more than anything. Age is just a #. My 2 eldest child (step-daughter) is 19 almost 20 and she acts more mature than most 40 y.o.'s that I know, she is currently in a LTR and is very happy. They plan on getting married, but they are both waiting until money is not an issue, and they will be waiting even longer to have kids...she is a hell of a lot more mature at her age, than I was at her age. So I think it has to do with the maturity factor, and the know-how to handle a marriage.

    When your heart and your head and your body can honestly take care of you, the one you love, and any children that you may bring into the world. If you can tend to all of those things physically, mentally, emotionally, monetarily and do so in a responsible manner, than have at it.

    I believe that when you start dating someone seriously (not High School or Grade School Puppy Luv) you should be able to care and provide for them like in a marriage. Age does not really matter after the leagal ages Men=21 years and Women=18 years.

    For women, probably 30. For men, maybe 35, cuz it takes them longer to get their shit together! (sorry guys!)

    now days, i think you should wait till your around 20. with all that is going on in the world, you should make sure you have a good job, going or gone to school. and have some part of your life already figured out.

    If she is under 18, you better marry her so she can't testify against you.
