Earlier, child marriage was the way of life. Today, the minimum age for marriage is 18 for women and 23 for men. After the completion of higher education at around 22, men and women today settle down financially with a suitable job, when they are aged around 25. So, from both physiological and social points of view, it makes better sense to get married before the couple is 27.
