What age is the right age to get married?

Emotional maturity is more important than IQ when it comes to maintaining a healthy marriage because couples face a variety of challenges that can threaten their bond, from minor disagreements about money to major issues like infidelity.

Marriage is a sacred commitment between two individuals who pledge to be together for the rest of their lives, no matter what obstacles they may face.

This commitment requires a certain level of maturity, which is reflected in these two Bible verses that are often associated with marriage:

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up." - Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

"Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers." - 1 Peter 3:7

According to a study conducted in 2013, men typically reach emotional maturity at the age of 43, while women do so at the age of 32.

Emotional maturity is more important than IQ when it comes to maintaining a healthy marriage because couples face a variety of challenges that can threaten their bond, from minor disagreements about money to major issues like infidelity.

When these challenges arise, it is important to remain calm and composed, and individuals who have not yet reached full emotional maturity may be more prone to reacting impulsively. This can lead to bitterness and ultimately, the breakdown of the relationship.

For this reason, it is generally recommended that men wait until the age of 43 and women until the age of 32 before getting married.

Of course, there are always exceptions, and some individuals may achieve emotional maturity at a younger age.

The key is to be honest with oneself and with one's partner about one's emotional readiness for marriage.
