In the State I live it is common for people to marry between 18 and 20, and most married couples I know have been together for 10+ years despite the early marital age. Guess it varies with culture and maturity, not years of age per se.

well...

My dad was 27 when he married my 19 year old mom.

It's never to early or to late.

As long as the couple(s) love each other and it's legal.

depends, back in the older days people were more mature, my great great grand parents got married at the age of 16 and made it through their entire lives together.

But that was back then. People had to survive on their own and learn how to at a early age.

Any # > 24 is too early in my opinion, especially if the couple in question hasn't lived together for at least several months prior to getting married.

Studies have shown that ppl who live together before marriage (if they ever get around to it) have a higher chance of divorcing.

At the very least 30. If you get married before then you and your partner better both be flexible enough to support each other in achieving the life goals you both strive for. There's no greater dream killer than settling down before you have had the chance to strive for it.

Well, when I got married I had just turned 21, and he was 22. That was 22 years and 4 kids ago. I had my first kid when I was 26, the 2nd @ 28, the 3rd @31, and the 4th @ 39. We're still married and still have the same feeling we did for each other in the beginning. We'd have more kids too, if I could physically. That's one thing I recommend....have your kids when you are in your 20's....you just don't have the energy to enjoy it when you're older, and statistically speaking, your're at a higher risk of having kids with birth defects after age 35 for women & age 40 for men .

At sixteen I can honestly say I was seriously lacking in worldly experience and the ability to make a sound judgement concerning a mate.Divorce in that instance was inevitable and may have been avoided if I had broadened my horizons.At 24 I had the life experiences needed to know a compatible person when I saw him and got to know him well before we got married.We were married several years and kept our vows until death parted us.I love him still.I think 22-24 for a woman and around 25 for a male.Whenever you realize that divorce should not be considered as an option in the first place,but as a regrettable last resort.

Edit: best time is never, because I have a 100% evasion rate from women, hooray!

Not sure if it's because I'm awesome or because I'm a loser. Wait, since when are those mutually exclusive?

Marriage is a very serious undertaking. Personally, I wouldn't marry anyone until I am confident I can take care of a family with little to no financial trouble. I also need to be satisfied with how much I've developed as a person and more importantly, as a man. Where I am right now, I will not even consider marriage. For the special someone I've yet to meet, I must be as strong as I can get in all aspects that concerns me, otherwise I am not deserving and am bound to destroy the bond.
