So what's the perfect age to get married? I'm just wondering.

I think it depends on your goals in life and what you want to do. The more you wish to do outside the home, in terms of career, travel, etc., the longer you should wait. I'm 24 and there's really no way in hell I could be married right now. Unless it were the type of marriage where the guy didn't mind if I went wherever I wanted to go in the world at a moments notice. Not many men are like that, which honestly begs the question of whether or not I will ever be married. I have consistently entertained the idea of having a child on my own when I am ready and financially stable and mature enough. Its something I have accepted. I don't know if all types of women are really meant to be married, considering how gender roles typically are. As long as I had a support network of reliable friends, family, a nanny, and I could work from home a bit when the baby is young, I could be happy raising a child on my own. I'm not delusional about the difficulty of that vs being a couple, and my parents don't like the idea lol But even they have to concede that someone like me may find it difficult if I don't eventually fall in line. And its quite hard to imagine myself at a point where a relationship comes before my career or goals and desires in life. That's the wrong type of woman to be married.
Anyway...I think it depends on what you want from life, what are your long term and immediate goals, when you want to have children, etc. But definitely having a good foundation in terms of finances and lifestyle is most important to having children, if that's what you want. Maturity and understanding of your partner, communication, knowing yourself and who you are and what you want and then if that matches what your partner wants and who they are - those are probably the most important things to consider for marriage alone. What type of marriage you have will be based on that
Id say for me, I could be married in my 30s, but I still won't be in the mode to "settle down" really. Alternative lifestyle lol But I could be a single woman, just me and my little baby and my career. I don't have a huge problem with that. Would LIKE to find a guy who matches me, buuuuut not sure that he exists or if he does, probably will be taken by the time I'm ready for a serious relationship.0
