Question:When is the ideal age to get married?

USA Today has an article on whether it is best to get married sooner or later in life. There is some conflicting research in it: some studies have found couples that get married in their 20s are happier and less likely to break up than those that get married in their 30s or 40s; while some researchers say getting married later in life is best because maturity makes for happier unions and greater economic security.

Does anyone out there feel there is an "ideal" age to get married? I know people that have gotten married at various ages, and I'm not quite sure it makes a difference. I'm interested to hear other people's take.
