that is cos of consent, not really that at that age, not married isn't a crime, is it?

Law of land says at age of 18, people can drive, is it a law that you must drive at that age, or does that means anyone 2ce that age will drive responsibly?

First of all Spyker, please define "ADULT" , here are some definitions I found:

1. a person who is fully grown or developed or of age , isn't a 30yr old fully grown or developed or of age?

2. a person who has attained the age of maturity as specified by law. isn't 30yr old enough to attain age of maturity as specified by law?

ACTUALLY, I don't even know why I'm engaged in this self, see, according to the law of the land , a man is OLD enough to marry at the age of 18! PERIOD!

I don't really think that there is any particular age (as in number) that is perfect for a man to get married. Married is for adults and only adults who based on certain conditions listed by fellow nairalanders here is ready for marriage.

I repeat, when he is an ADULT and ready to fulfill the obligation and responsibility that goes with marriage.

NOPE!

Let me clarify AGAIN , at 30, a MAN IS OLD ENOUGH TO MARRY!!!!

A man who doesn't have a job at 30 isn't a Loser! and You don't have to be a winner to be OLD ENOUGH TO MARRY

u get me?

Cos a man doesnt get a job at 30 doesnt mean he cant get a job at 31, by your statement, seems now like when a man is not able to marry at 30, he is a loser, and i bet to disagree.

Let me repeat what i said, You cant nail an age on when a man shd get married, it is an individual thing.

Having a job is not the requirements fro marriage, read my first post on this thread well.

It is not about age.

As far as I'm concerned, there should be an age barrier, be it 30 or 50, but I'll stick to 30. At 30, a man is OLD enough to get married, he might not be wealthy enough, he might not even be in employment, BUT HE IS SURELY OLD ENOUGH

There are some men at 50, that dont even ave a job, there are some that still lives and eats Mama's food.

These shows, it is not about the age, and it is an individual things and cant be generalized.

Fhemmy, I agree with you, shall we jack up the age limit to 50 then? Are we save to say a man that is not ready by 50 is not fit to marry EVER?

How me a nation where all the people at the age of getting a job are all working.

You mean to tell me that there are not lots of 35 years of age at our universities, especially a place there are strike every 6 months that lasted for ever, and making a 4 years program being done in 12 years.

Tell you are kidding that at age of 30, all what you listed ought to have been achieved? it is nice to have achived all that at age of 30, however, there are so many people that would love to settle down and marry, with degrees and yet to get a job.

All i am saying is that, we need to learn not to attach age with all things, cos all we doing is putting pressures on these people for something that aint their fault.

Ok, let's put it into perspective,

How old does a child have to be to walk?

How old does a child have to be to be admitted into nursery school?

How old does he/she have to be to be admitted into primary school? secondary school?

How old before admitted into University? How old to graduate?

How old to start a job? Yea! What's the minimum age to start a job in life?

How old to retire? How old to die?

If you can fit age to most of my questions above, then you can fit age with Marriage too!

Marriage is just an event in a life of a man, there is time for everything under the heavens! A time to be born and a time to die! A time to be SINGLE and a time to be MARRIED!!!

To me, a man is old enough to marry when he is emotionally mature, it has nothing to do with Finances as per say. Come to think of it, there are men that are well to do these days but trust me marriage is the last thing on their minds. I know of men that are happily married with a salary of less than 30 thousand. Some of these pay rent, have more than five children who are all going to school and are doing just fine. Besides, there's no limit to a man's desire. He wants money; when he gets it, he wants to flex; when he is done with flexing, he wants power.

Look around you, how many young men (Ladies alike) that are comfortable (to say the least) that are married?

That is why i said, we can nail an age to marriage.

there are so many things to think about before we marry and these are things that are not achieved by age.

Marry when you are emotionally and financially balanced, but more importantly, you have to depend on God who manages our emotions and finances. For who are we without Him?

it is not how old but when someone is matured. Age is just number. A 50 year old man may not be as matured emotionally like a 20yr old.

Hey. . The poster asked of AGE not conditions necessary to marry. . .

I think as soon as you have pubic hair you can marry, but for you to enjoy the marriage you have to wait for the conditions my fellow narialanders are listing. . .

But hey. . If you are 40 and these conditions are not still present, GO AND MARRY

That could mean being rich to some people, and i think as long as the man has enuf money to put a roof on his head, and has extra room under that roof, when the man can feed himself and another mouth and still can afford to buy diapers and feed a little baby, then, he is capable.

Please note i said feed the little baby, cos the woman cld take in anytime and the man must be a man and step up to the plate to make sure the baby is well taken care of.

By the way, God will provide what the child will eat, i so much blv in this.

I think it is an individual thing.

When a man knows that he is done playing all the games and he is ready to take on the challenges, when a man knows he has found the right woman and ready to deal with all the drama that comes with sharing the washroom, his thought, his mind, money, and heart, when he is ready to celebrate someone else apart from his mother and sisters, when he is ready to sacrifice, then, HE IS READY FOR MARRIAGE.

I think if you are old enough to accept the responsibility (financial, maturity, empathy, etc) that comes with caring and raising a family, then you are old enough to marry. That could be 16 or 60.

As early as possible. Most men delay marriage because they have access to the forbidden fruit and as such refuse to marry.

If all LADIES can zip up completely, men will marry on time.
