Getting married young vs. "not so young."

I was married when I was younger-than-average, and it lasted. (I'm not going to tell you how long it lasted, but lets just say its a double-digit number of years

Some say a young marriage is a mistake and it leads to early divorce, etc. I've certainly seen that before. Others say a young marriage is best because you have more energy to take care of kids, and you are still (relatively) young yourself when they leave the home (if they can ever afford to leave these days, that is).

Seems like lots more people these days are waiting until their late 20s, 30s, 40s or even beyond to tie the knot. Some think this healthy, others lament it. And of course many never get married at all and are prefectly happy about that.

I'm not making any value judgements about this issue...obviously everyone is different, and whatever works for you works me. But I was curious about how others feel about this issue.

Personally, I think it's best to get married in your late twenties/early thirties and have children then. That way, you're young enough to keep up with them, but old enough to have maturity and know what you really want in life.

Of course, I also think it should be mandatory to live with a person for a year prior to marriage, because living with someone and dating them are entirely different ballgames.....

Just my opinion though, and you know what they say about opinions....
