I'm asking because a lot of people still believe that 25 is the magical age of marriage (mostly for women) and a lot of my friends who're 24-27 say they either want to be or should've been engaged or married by 25. Also, since I'll be 25 soon, my parents often joke about a winter wedding. But nowadays it seems like most people are getting married at 40 years old! Is 25 still a good age or do you feel that it's too young?

It depends more on the character and values of the people getting married, rather than the age. I think marriages fail more today for a variety of reasons, and that the age of getting married isn't really a major factor in the divorce rate. One, society has become more individualistic and diverse in opinion, than it was 40 or 50 years ago. We are also more self serving and entitled as a whole, and that goes for both men and women. In the older days, and in some parts of the world still, divorce is considered a huge dishonor. They still believe in making marriages work rather than throwing it all away to find someone new. Divorces today are viewed as no big deal, and for many people it's like ordering a pizza. Financial stresses, epidemic drug addiction, cheating, alcoholism, abuse, self-centeredness, and differing cultural/ religious/political and child rearing outlooks further contribute to the higher divorce rates that we see today.0

I dont think you can define the "right" age its different for everyone. Were all ready for different things at different times in life. Its matching that time up. Thats the trickey part.1
