What is the average age for a girl to marry in the FSU?

What is the average age for a girl to marry in the FSU? Is there a "cutoff" age where society looks down on her if she is not married by a certain age?

That used to be 25, but that's changed in the past few years.

I really can't detect a pattern as to the average age. Some say 19. But then there are many women of this age who don't have that as a goal. It's really difficult to tell. I am not even sure if there is such a "cutoff" age.

19 ?? I think you are like 30 years out of date.. Only STUPID women from a village marry at 19, the same goes for the UK.. only stupid women have 5 kids by 22 ... :laugh:

Its the same in Russia as any where else in the world, don't take notice of all the false articles and blogs out there saying it is traditional in Russia for young women to get married at 19/20 they are just created with the sole purpose of usually making you part with your cash..

My 'sis sent me the 1911 census for my Dad's side of the family, yesterday...

His father ( My Great-Granddad) married a lass 17 years younger - was retired by 52 ( ex-Royal Irish Constabulary)  and they had 7 kids together ..one of which was only 1 year old ...

Ste, would be interested to learn that it claims they could read and write Irish and English - well, all but the 3 and 1 yr old ...
