I'm hoping to settle down in the next 5 years. I'm 26. Ideally I wanted to be married by 25 but nothing ever happens the way you want it.

I think anytime after 25 or so is a good age depending on a person's maturity. I was much younger and I regret it. I've heard that people's personalities stop changing so much around that age. I'll have to wait til I'm older to find out if its true or not.

It all depends on when you are ready. Some people are ready sooner than others. For me it was about 27-28.

I am 24 and married, however, I don't consider myself "settled down". I also don't want a family in the traditional sense, and neither does my husband. Our cat is enough.

I'm guessing I'm outside the norm here, but I got married at 18. Surprisingly my wife and I would fight multiple times a day before we got married and hardly ever fight since we've been married. Not a situation I recommend to just anyone but the right people can make it work I guess.

It depends on each person really. I'm 23 and married and I'm very happy being settled down. We're planning to start a family in the next few years when we feel financially stable enough for children.

Whenever you're ready.

I'm not a fan of setting a random age and going for it; it could lead to unreal expectations and then stress...etc

I moved in with my partner at 18 and married at 19. It worked for me, but I would not put it as a guideline for anyone else.

I'm 25 now and I can't imagine being ready to get married in the next couple of years. I would rather be done with school and settled into my career before I start looking to settle down and I still have a little while before that will happen.

I think around 30 I will be more interested in settling down with someone. But really who knows? All I know is that I'm not ready right now.

i refuse to get married before 25. i want to graduate, get a decent job, live in my own apt w/ no room mates, learn to support myself & all that, & just enjoy being on my own for a few years (when i say on my own, i mean completely independent from my parents [who i love], i'll still date & have relationships & hopefully still be in the 1 that i'm in now). once i know i can support myself & do so for a few years & know that my bf can also support himself & live on his own, then i will settle down w/ someone.

I am 22 and married with two kids. My oldest is going be three and my youngest is 6 months old. I wanted to get started early, my honey is no spring chicken. I married a man who is 41, we did not want him to be 80 when they were graduating. I am a lot different that most people my age. I know my responsibilities and I do my best to provide for my sons. Everyone who knows me, is impressed with how good I am at being a mom at my age. This is the life I wanted. I will go to school one day, I graduated high school just never went to college. I have plenty time to do this. I want to be with my babies right now. I get to be a stay at home mom for now and enjoy the baby years that I have with my sons. I could not ask for more. I love it, this is what I was meant to do. I wanted to be the one who puts morals and values in my kids rather than the day care instructor, babysitter, or child care provider. These years are important for these kinds of things. Plus I have trust issues with these kind of people. Well basically anyone at all since I was sexually abused as a small child by a close family member. And my sister was also, plus another close family member beat my sister with a 2x4 in front of me. These kinds of things tend to impact your life.

I got married when I was 19 wish I would have given myself more time. That marriage didn't last.

Im hoping to get married in the next few years. Im 24 now. I dont want kids till I am 30 though. So itll give me time to settle into married life.

I'm 23, been married, been divorced, in a relationship, and if he were to ask me to marry him I would say yes with no hesitation! Although family, as in children, not so much. We're both thinking we don't really want to have any

Everyone is different. There isn't one age which works for everyone.

I got married in my early 20s, but had been with My Man since I was 16. I guess I settled down earlier than most. But, we both wanted children, and thought it best to have them early, as soon as I was finished with college.

i'm settling down now (i'm 23 and putting down roots for myself, committing to long-term relationships, etc.) but i don't want to get married or start a family. i am not tied to the idea of being legally married and i'm already as committed to my partners as it's humanly possible to be. i can't have children, though i would consider adopting sometime later in life. my partner already has grown children and i love working with kids, though, so i'm not dead set on adoption or having my own children.
