At what age would you consider to settle down?

I've been on GaG for a month and I've seen people aged bellow 22 that are married or even divorced. I'm not judging it just seems weird to me. I'd personally consider starting a family when my career would be at a stable point (around 30 hopefully) and only if I was sure it would work.

  • I would settle when I'm around 28-30. By then I'll be mature enough to choose a partner that I'll be with for the rest of my life and to have children with.

    During my peak decade however, I'll have too much energy and opportunities to let it go to waste. I want to get as much out of life as I can. Properly pursuing my career and securing a financially wealthy position. Traveling around places and getting to meet new people and pursuing new women.

    Then when I find the right one... Finally settle in after my journey... By then, live and do as I wish.

What Guys Said 32

  • My dream would be to be with the same girl for the rest of my life as soon as we just find each other. I probably wouldn't like to get "officially" married, unless there was good practical reasons, buuut as a romantic guy I could arrange some nice and fun little private ceremony :P and maybe have 1 kid when I'm not one myself.

  • Only if I am sure it will work?-----How can you be sure. There is no guarantee here. When my career will be at a stable point?------Now a days career has no stability.----And what will you do if you are swept away with a lot of blissful love. Will you reject such opportunities?

      Sometimes you know it won't work. Also I think I will be able to have a stable career in the field I want to. And if I find true love at 20 or smth it will last until 30 when I would consider to get married.

      Opinion owner. This is accually very true for some. I hope the younger listen to this here , because for most , this is a reality that will hit them (sideways ) like a ton of bricks.

  • I don't expect to break out of my shell for at least another year (20 years old) and I wouldn't even consider marriage while I was still in college so I would have to wait till I graduate (21 years old) then on top of that I want to be in a relationship for 3 years before proposing because that's accepted as the final speed bump for couples so my minimum would be 24 years old. That is the scenario if literally everything goes perfectly but I don't expect my first relationship to be my only relationship since there is a more than 50% chance of a couple breaking up. I would assume that after factoring in all the speed bumps and potential breakups, the actual age will be around 27.

  • Age isn't really important to me. I just want to make sure I meet the right girl and I'm financially stable before I settle down

  • I am never settling down. For others, I think Mid - Late 20's is good. About 2/5 of my Facebook friends age 25-27 are engaged or married with kids. The other 3/5 are in some kind of relationship.

  • I did marry my wife when we both had a good job and an income. She had the job and the income earlier than me because I had to fulfill my military service (unpaid, the first year!). Thus I got a job right after my HD and married asap, at 25.

  • Honestly anytime from now onward I'm not exactly in a huge rush but I don't exactly want to be married in my mid 30s or something like that. Of course even if I was married right now I wouldn't start a family till I was financially secure and stable.

  • it doesn't matter. when i'll be able to earn enough money then i'll settle down. so my age has nothing to do with that.

  • I'd say 26-30 is definitely when you should be settling down, 22-26 at the earliest, keep in mind if you want kids though they have the best chances the earliest you have them, if you wait til your 30s there's a high chance of them not being normal

      If you have them before 18 there's a higher change they will have genetical abnormalitys as well.

What Girls Said 18

  • I got married when I was 22 (which is young in Australia). My career was already stable and I'd bought my first house, but despite those I see no reason why I couldn't have continued those goals while married.
    Goals can run concurrently, you don't have to tick one off before starting the next. You will miss so many opportunities life throws at you that way

  • Definitely 26-30 and even at that, I think marriage alone is best at that age. Leave the babies until you're around 29/30. Just means you have a career and a good home to bring children up in :)

  • I would like to settle down in my late 20's- early 30's like when I'm 28 but I will have kids in my 30's but I know anything can happen but at least I will be in my late 20's if I do get pregnant early.

      I already found a guy that I want to settle down with so hopefully everything goes well
      By the way I'm from the U. S.

  • As in marriage and kids? 28 is the youngest. Probably closer to 30 to be honest.

    P. S.! @AlexAlex92 - Someone else from Greece. :]

  • I don't have a specific age. If I get into a relationship, I'm not expecting marriage but I'm not going into it expecting to break up you know? The goal is to find someone you'll always want to be with. As for starting a family, as late as possible. I'd want to savor my relationship.

  • I do find it weird when people marry so young in their after 25 is fine, but younger than that is just to young. But I do understand that people want to experience marriage while their young and youthful instead of waiting until their older.

  • When i was younger i thought that by now i would be married!
    But life is uncertain, and things change over time. Partners exit and new ones enter your life.
    Right now i'm more focused on having a good time rather than put all my eggs in one basket. Maybe in a few years who knows? :)
