    With all the drama regarding marriage around this board, I wondered about the general opinion on this.

    Late 20s? Early 30s? Late 30s? Never?

    How long should you be successfully dating?

    Does her not enjoying ass play get her points for or against being wife material?

    So many questions.

    It's about experience too. Go through a few relationships and breakups first with other people so you really understand how good you have it with that person.

    73 seems about right.
    That way one or the other will probably croak befor you start to hate each other.

    Just like everything else, it depends on the person. There is no one right answer for all of life's questions.

    2nd serious relationship, but many random hookups. Does that count?

    I occasionally think about how life would be had I married someone else or someone like a friend's wife. That would have been the end of me. In reality, no one is perfect, as a couple you just evolved into each other as feelings, opinions change with life experiences. I married right after college but I think I got real lucky with mine. Eh, she as well.

    I would say once a person has an education and career squared away, no younger than 25. No kids before 28. If I had it to do over again that's they way I'd go. Married at like 25, 2 kids between 28-30. That way you're mature enough to handle the responsibility, but young enough to have the energy to chase after kids and still be young enough to enjoy your life/travel once they are grown.

    Luck has a lot to do with it, but so does screwing up, which I've done one too many times. :jj:

    It is different depending on the person of course. The tricky part is waiting until you've had a decent amount of youthful experiences to look back on fondly without regret of missing out, but not too long to the point where you struggle to adapt to a married lifestyle with all the compromises involved due to being "set in your ways".

    If she is not into ass play and you feel like it's important it's obviously points against. I doubt it will get better after the marriage...seems like most guys here get cut off from certain escapades after they are married.

    If you can afford it and make it to your 30s single, stay that way.

    If you insist on it, wait till 30+ when you've learned one or two things

    I can't stand to be around my guy friends for more than a few hours at a time and we actually have things in common. why the fuck would you enter a financial contract just to stick your dumb dick in something? I've cut off every relationship when it got to the "moving in together" stage. I need at least 8 hours of independence a day.

    I'm 30 and the veiled bitterness I get from my my married friends, especially when I'm outnumbered, says it all. none of them are happy.

    After 27 yrs old........Know yourself and make sure your partner knows themselves.Marriage isn't a zone to allow regrets to boil up and then suddenly you want to do/have major lifestyle changes.

    Only get married if you want kids. Otherwise it is a waste and any chick gets boring to hook up with after awhile.

    If you want kids i think the ideal age/gap should be guy 35, woman 28

    If you are really enjoying single life and only want 1-2 kids you can push it back to guy 40, chick 30-32

    Date for a minimum of 2 years with atleast 1 year living together.

    Her not being into ass play is a good thing. It means shes not a whore and you can be the first to loosen her up
