"I tnk God he saved me from early marriage around that kind 22_23 years ,hmmm I don't think I would have had the mind of my own, is good for a lady to be matured mentally, emotional financially before entering marriage .from 24years and above is a perfect age . By then u already know what u want and have a mind of ur own.i know age is just a number but it really have a lot to contribute in ones life."

Ephraim Alkali Laima said:

"You have a point but a blanket suggestion for marriage at 28 and above for all ladies is never feasible. The idea of building a career is good but some simply don't have the means to train themselves and marriage seem to be a great way to hang on. In all love, respect for each other no Matter the situation in the Lord will help us succeed."
