Here in canada, we get married straight out of high school at 18 or normally around 21-24. If you're not married by the time you're 30 you're considered an old maid.

However my sister just got back from travelling all over asia and said in most places it's different. She visited Hong Kong, China and Thailand mostly but according to her, people study their tails off and get a career before getting married. Is that true? How do you feel?

As hudsona23 said the standard age to be getting married in England is about 25 and you are expected to have kids by 30. Though you can legally get married with your parents permission at the age of 16.

I would agree with hudsona. It's become typical to not think of marriage until you're 25 in most of the UK.
This might be interesting:

I'm not sure how accurate it is ^-^

Well that is for those who actually go to college...There is still a large percentage here in America who don't go to college for one reason or another. Anyways...

Here in America the average age at which men get married is about 27 and women at about 25...

100, when you are too old to want to date a bunch of people. Plus when you get married you can't watch a lot of anime. anime people don't marry other anime people. otherwise they would never have any money. LOL!!! so there is usually one person who won't watch it as much. TT__TT

I believe, after you are done with college you can get married, not before that.
