    You marry someone rich then and make money instead.

    i'd say around the age of 25 - 28 is a good age to get married because it's not too young, and it's not old either!

    this isnt the thread for you then! lol

    personally, around 30ish, i put the later option on the pol but late 20's early 30's perhaps, fair play to younger couples getting married but i would prefer some experience in life before i settle down (which is what i relate marriage too, skewed perception perhaps)

    some guy i worked with must have been 25 and he was married and had already 2-3 kids with another on the way:eek: he was doing a law degree at the same time too!:eek: his eldest was a walking/talking kid too, not a young un....

    ...that scares me

    i have a friend that says the same, and that is because his parents got divorced and they didn't handle it very well, took it out on the children. he thinks that you can still be in love without marriage.

    yeah that's what i think really - i mean, it would be nice, but it's easier to sort things out if they don't go to plan.

    No, but you do to get married, if under 16. As engagement is usually accompanied by the traditional 'asking of the hand' it's kind of implicit.

    That's a really negative outlook . You're assuming things have a better chance of going wrong than going right. Where is the love, people?

    i went to a silver wedding anniversary on firday night of some family friends. i was suprised they got married when the woman was 19 and the man was 21 and everyone there had got married at a similar age except my parents (who were in their 30s despite knowing each other since birth)... and last week i was working with a girl who was 22 and married :eek:

    how old do you want to be when you get married? *poll on it's way*

    lou xxx
    eek! Indeed. If you spend as much time as this on UKL you may never get married. Might be a good thing, spare the gene pool etc etc
