There is no perfect age until the person is mentally prepared: There’s no best age to get married. Men or women alike. Unless the person is ready. It can be the early 20s or late 30s. If the person has established oneself and feels like one should share the life with another individual, one should go for it. In India, getting married at a certain age is nothing but societal pressure, and that’s why this question about age pops up more often. But, ideally, it should be the maturity or the readiness of the individual that matters the most.
When a person is ready to take the responsibilities: With marriage comes a lot of responsibilities and you are ready for marriage only when you are prepared for all these. And it does not matter if you are in your 20s or your 40s, you are at a perfect age and are ready for marriage only when you think you are capable of shouldering the responsibilities.
When he or she is financially stable: Not many people, especially women, consider the importance of financial stability before getting married. But it really matters; a person shouldn't marry for money, but money is an important part of life and should be a point of discussion prior to the wedding. Financial stability is helpful in any marriage. The mishandling of money is often cited as a reason for marital problems. Money woes can limit a couple’s giving and their opportunities to serve in ministry. If a person has a history of financial instability, the potential future spouse has a right to know the cause of the instability.
However, in societies like India, where ancient traditions continue to co-exist along with modern ideas, there are practical reasons why men and women worry about the best age for getting married.
Back in the 1960s, people could get married younger and it would work out because there was little for a woman to do but adjust to her husband; But today, we are coming to marriage with much higher expectations — a friendship, matured and favorable love, equal responsibility, deeply & emotionally understandable partner, no pressure from in laws; personal, social & professional space; intimacy; mutual benefit; an openness to learning from each other. We want to negotiate as equals.
These are things that come with education, maturity and the self-efficacy from establishing yourself in your career. It used to be marriage was the way you started to grow up, but recently, marriage is only going to work if you are both grown up.
All I can say is “no one can figure out the right age dear!” BEST OF LUCK!
