Marriage is a very serious step to take in your life, and you need to be emotionally, mentally and physically ready. You really shouldn't run off to Vegas, get drunk and get married,perhaps having a marriage that lasts for 72 hours, or was that 7 hours like Britney Spears did. Marriage is a super serious step to take that will last for the rest of your life. You need to be ready to handle it where you will be living in a grown up world of endless possibilities.

The best time to get married is when the two of you are emotionally mature enough to know how to be in a relationship for the rest of your lives. You have to get in it to stay in it. For some people this happens when they are just twenty years old.
They feel that they can handle it, and they are both very mature for their age.For some people this doesn't happen until much later when they are over thirty-five or even forty. They have dated a lot of other people and have finally grown up and realized they want to find someone to spend the rest of my life with.

Some people never want to commit to just one other person, and they just want to have fun, and live a carefree lifestyle. You see those guys all the time who are fun to be around but aren't ready to tie the knot. Everybody seems to know at least one guy like this that by the time he is 35,everybody thinks he's gay. But he's not, he just hasn't grown up, or just wants to live his life his way.

Marriage is very difficult and that's why fifty percent of marriages end up in divorce. So, if you're thinking about getting married, make sure you're mature enough and that one of you has a good job. Even better- both of you should have good jobs. Then you can save money to buy a house. If you have lousy jobs like my husband and I did when we got married, it makes it even more difficult. Then you fight about money and you don't have much if any to save for things you want.

A lot of people these days are waiting to get married until they work at their careers for awhile and become established and make more money. Which actually is a great idea, but you might not find the right person later on. But, the two of you can work on your careers together and get married when you feel you are really ready to get married. What you need to do is stick to your guns, and not allow anyone else tell you when you should get married. This way, you can save money, because weddings are very expensive today. You don't want to go into a marriage in debt, thus you should save as much as possible, waiting as long as you feel you have to.

If you know you want to spend the rest of your life with one person, and you are mature enough to handle it, and you have a good job, then this the best time for you to get married.  But if you don't feel right about it, then hang back for awhile, wait it out, gaining some life experience, while saving money for the big nuptials.
