    It's quite young but if it's going to work it's not too young.

    No set age really, when people are ready to take that huge step. Generally people are leaving it later though so they can have a life first.

    Does she really know though, in reality no one knows what will happen, you can't predict life just like that.

    It's quite young but not overly. If I was that age and I was certain I was with the right person I might well go for it.

    It is fairly young, but not overly so and each to their own.

    Personally I don't know if I will ever get married, and if I do it will not be for a long time.

    My mum and dad were 21 and 23 when they got married, and have been together happily for 21 years. So if it's the right person, no.

    As others have said, there isnt a right age- if its going to last it doesnt matter if you are 19 or 57.
    I voted 27-28 (although I wanted to say 26/27 :p:)
    As I myself,despite the fact that ive been with my boyfriend almost 4 years can never see myself getting married any younger than that. Also If I do everything I want to do at uni, I wont finish until im 26 anyway.

    If you feel you are ready to and its the right thing to do then go for it. It doesn't matter when you get married if you are going to be together forever.
