    imo, 21 is way to young.

    I'm waiting as long as I can: 25 - 30 for me

    21 is too young. You can only just legally drink at your wedding! Really you need to of been with someone a few years, maybe lived with them for a bit as well and got to really know them before even thinking about getting married. At 21 you could still be in full time education which doesn't leave much time for a family so soon in your life.

    25-30 is the best range I would say.

    While there are surely some people who have successful marriages after being married at 18, no doubt many others now regret acting on impulse, or getting married so young because "it felt right".

    No objections here. And I suppose that would be OK for a guy, but most women would be considering their biological clock and likely wanting to get married before then.

    the only way J-P will ever hit rock bottom if he asks me to move up to canada and wear a wedding dress.

    haha, i'm kidding of course. I think 19 - 21 is the perfect range for some depending on if you really love the person. If its someone I feel that i'll spend the rest of my life with i'd marry them.

    I actually need to find myself a girl. lol

    I think no one wants a tall french nerd with no social life. The only girls I'll ever date are the ones in GTA San Andreas

    Most people during their teens and twenties are still figuring out who they are and what they want to do with their lives.

    This is just a general answer. Many people could get married at 16 and have it work out wonderfully.

    "What security is there for men in marriage?
    If I cheat on my wife, she gets half my stuff.
    If she cheats on me, she still gets half my stuff.
    Why the heck should I get married?"

    I'm just 25, and I voted for 25-30.

    No, I have no one in mind, so I had better get moving (and stop chasing anything in a skirt).

    Edit: Uhh, that came out wrong. What I meant to say was that I had better get my act together and stop lookinf for quantity over quality in relationships.

    I'd personally vote "never"... Seriously...

    Then again it could be because of all the people I know who've come from a "broken home", and seeing what dysfunctional "marriages" there are in my family and how the whole thing just doesnt work. I believe it creates more problems than what they're worth and in todays day in age what good are they?

    Just my view on the whole topic.

    Well, I don't know what the 'best' age is. I think it probably differs from person to person.

    I'm getting married next year. I will be 30 and my soon-to-be wife will be 24. So, for us, those are the best ages.

    Out of those possible choices and the fact that there is such a high divorce rate. 31+ Why rush to the lawyers office.

    25-30 is defintaly the best age. statistics prove that those that marry at 25 or later for the first time have half the divorce rate of those under 25. that is reason enough to wait - just playing the odds. plus there are too many things to go do while you are young yet legal to miss out on by taking on the marriage responsibillity.

    if you wait till after 30 your chance of finding someone without significant baggage starts going down every year and gets harder and harder.

    25-30 is the age at which most people get married, but it really varies, depending on the person. When you're 25-30, you haven't matured as a person, but at least you have a better idea about yourself than when you're in your teens and early twenties.

    My dad was 26 when he married my mom, who was 32. They're still happily together. His mom was 18 when she married his dad, who was in his mid-20s. They got divorced after having four kids. His mom's mom got married when she was 15 to a man who was in his 20s. I believe they were together until the end. So, it all depends. There's no catch-all answer, but only the option that works for you.
