    Late thirties/early forties. If at all. Why would I want to ruin my life?

    I'd quite like to be with someone and thinking about long term when I'm 25, but I doubt that'll happen... more likely I'll be single and alone

    It would not be 25 for me (it depends).

    I would only consider marriage and a family only after securing stable wealth, a stable and well-tended home, large and frequent income, ready preparations for a family (preparations for newborns etc), having studied how to take great care with newborns and ensure that they develop excellently and ensure that they have a chance at extreme heights of intellect etc etc - only then, will I look for a suitable partner (probably, a German woman or some other from the northern lands such as Finland, Scandinavi, Norway, Sweden etc etc)

    I have always been unsure about marriage. But I don't see why, if it felt right and I felt ready for it, I wouldnt do it. After all, if I really loved someone, then I would want to stay with them anyway!

    I am in no hurry though for anything like that. When I was 17, I thought 22 sounded quite old. I'm now almost 23, and I realise how young I still am!. xD I think people want to do things too quickly these days. I think most people marry too quickly/too young and then split up.
    I am in no hurry for marriage or moving in or anything...but, that said, I would still like to have someone special in my life now.

    Well I plan to get rich between 24-30.

    So from 30-35 would be the ideal time in my opinion to settle down with someone as hopefully i'll have a good income to support both my wife, and any kids that we have, or plan to have.

    But also, prenuptial agreement is the way forward!

    I ain't sayin' she a gold digga, but I ended up a broke *****!

    There's another thread going at the moment about where you see yourself when you're 25, and lots of people seem surprised/scared that some people see themselves married (and maybe with kids)!

    I always thought 25 was quite a fair age to get married; it's the age I'd like to be when I get married...

    So just wondering really, what age do you guys think would be appropriate to settle down and get married?

    Do you even want to get married at some point in your life? Yes, no? Why, why not?
    No real idea but I'll start thinking seriously after love strikes. Definitely after I've finished my degree though.

    I'm surprised how many people are saying 25 or younger. If I do get married, it won't be until I have a stable income and have been with my partner for a number of years, so perhaps 28/29 at the earliest.

    Between the ages of 26-28 and then a child by 30. Ideally.

    It's been my lifelong dream to travel the world, I want to experience everything it has to offer. I don't think I could settle down until I'm in at least my late 20s. Plus I don't see marriage as a big thing, it has absolutely no religious significance to me, it's an expensive piece of paper really, I'd probably be happy just in a relationship for 10 years.
