Marriage is undoubtedly a responsible step, and every girl dreams of a beautifulwith a handsome groom. And imagining such beauty, the girls are tormented by the question “at what age can you get married?”, I really want to leave the house in adress.
There are also cases when a guy and a girl have been dating for many years and really want to get married, for such couples the question is “at what age can you get married (get married)?” stands even sharper. So, from what age can you apply to the registry office?
At what age can you legally get married?
Let’s start, perhaps, with Russia — at what age, according to the law, can you get married ? The family code establishes the age of marriage (the number of years after which a person can marry) 18 years. But if there are good reasons, they can marry (but are not required to) sixteen-year-olds. In addition, if there are special circumstances stipulated by the laws , marriage can be concluded even before the age of sixteen.
At what age can one get married in Ukraine? Until recently, it was allowed to marry from the age of seventeen, but in April 2012, amendments were adopted to the Family Code of Ukraine to raise the marriageable age for women. Now it is, as in Russia, 18 years. But the right to marriage can be obtained by a girl (or boy) of 16 years old by a court decision if the marriage is in the interests of the couple who wants to get married. Previously, the minimum age for marriage was 14. Raising the age of marriage was explained by the authors of the bill as an attempt to instill in the younger generation a more responsible and civilized attitude towards the institution of the family.
When is it time to get married?
Perhaps many girls who want to get married clutched their heads, having learned that they would have to wait for their eighteenth birthday, since there were no special and respectful circumstances. And of course, older ladies will try to console them, saying that there is nowhere to rush, you will still have time to sip this family life with a big spoon. Both generations have their own truth, but probably, it is important not at how many years you can get married according to the law, but when you need to do it. After all, age is not so important, sometimes a 30-year-old lady behaves infantilely, not understanding at all what responsibility she should take upon herself when she gets married. And there are cases when a 16-year-old girl nurses a child, and copes with the household, and feels happy. Everything depends on the person, each of us has a different age when it becomes time to get married.
But how, then, to find out your own marriageable age, if the question “at what age do women get married” does not lift the veil of secrecy? And who told you that you need to ask someone else’s opinion? There are such prejudices among the ladies “I didn’t get married before the age of 30, which means I didn’t fit anyone,” which is why the girls run to the registry office, trying to catch up to a critical age. And it doesn’t matter at all to them that in a couple of years they will divorce — a hastily concluded marriage usually does not last long. So it’s not worth relying on prejudices and experience of girlfriends. Your time to get married will come when you want to start a family with the very person who is now nearby, and not at the moment when you want a beautiful ceremony and it suddenly turns out that the current sexual partner is able to pay for all this.
If the opinion of others also cannot be an adviser on the issue of marriage, then the last hope is for doctors. They say that the best age for having a first child is 23–25 years old. So, you need to try with all your might to get to these deadlines? Even if you don’t want children, even if the man that you have is not drawn to the role of a loved one? Apparently the question is when it’s time to get married, and medicine is powerless.
And what age are we talking about? Family is not numbers, it is emotions, desires and obligations of two people who have decided to live a long period of life together. And it doesn’t matter how old these people are — 16 or 89.
