The ideal age for getting married for a female is 25, while the ideal age for a male is 27 though there is no law laid down for a specific age for getting married. Although, in the United States and some countries, the age to get married starts from 18 years, while some countries accept marriage for females at their teenage age. It is ideal for a female to get married at the age of 25, and 27 for a male, because at this age, they would have had enough experience about life. Marriage is not an “anyhow thing” that you entered into without preparation.
Marriage requires a good level of maturity in some areas of life. Marriage requires that, apart from being physically matured with age, financial and emotional maturities are also needed. These are expected to have been achieved by the age of 25 for the female, and 27 for the male. Nevertheless, early marriage is encouraged in the modern world.
There is no ideal age to get married. There are instances when people would need to get married because they are required by their ancestors or it is a part of their culture, but if people would be given a choice to get married, they can always get married when they want to.
Some will get married in their late 20s while there are also some who believe that they should start to get married in their early 30s. Some can get married at 60, and this will be perfectly fine. If a person feels that it is already the right time to get married, then he/she can definitely do what he/she pleases.

There is no ideal age for getting married. Marriage does not, and I do not think it will ever have a “right age.” Marriage is an institution formed by the union of two or more persons to create a family tied by legal, social, and religious right and responsibility. Marriage is not a “do or die” affair.
You should get married when you are comfortable and when you feel you are ready to be united with another individual. Many people have gotten married at their 20s, others in their 30s, 40s, and so on. Getting married is all about your happiness and how ready you are to be committed to this legal institution. It’s almost never about age.
