Most of the users are of the opinion that there is no age upper limit for marriage and one should think about marriage only when she or he meets Mr. Right or Miss Right accordingly. A Quora user stated, “Marriage is something that does not have a ‘right time’ but it really does have an egg timer on it, which means that you really need to wait until your relationship develops just right.”

While another Quora user has something quite different to share. According to him, a person should think of marri9age only when he/she has achieved something great in life.

2. One should marry after he/she is self reliant: It is very essential to earn before you think of marriage, especially for women as you do not have any clue aboout what is gouing to happen next in life, said a Quora user.

3. Get married after you feel you’ve become successful: “For many marriage happens after they have crossed 30-year of age,” the user added. It is okay to do so if you are already in a serious and committed relationship but if you happen to be single, then you should think of marriage before you turn 30.


4. Marry when you find the person with whom you want children: Another Quora user suggested that the right time one should get married after he or she finds a special someone with whom he/she can have children or raise a family. Marriage is afterall about having a family.
