POLL: At what age should a man marry?


John Abraham is the dashing groom at 41. Is that right age for a man to tie the knot?

There is they say no 'correct' age to get married.

Ask John Abraham, who just got married. At 41.

And then there is Bollywood's eternal bachelor, Salman Khan, 48. Still single.

In a country that is obsessed with marriage -- according to the WHO and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in India, the average age for marriage for men is 26 years -- the two hunks are an exception rather than the rule.

What does it say about you if you have been single for the first 40 years of your life?

That you are emotionally mature, financially secure and are at a place in your life where you're finally ready to take on a very serious responsibility?

Or does it mean that you're just another workaholic, who refuses to see beyond his professional commitment, and possibly suffer from personal commitment issues?

What is the right age for a man to get married?

What's your view? Tell us. Take a poll.

Do you think 40 is perhaps too late?

Would you marry him?

Share your opinion in the discussion board below and take our poll to let us know what you think!
