Many people have a hazy future plan that involves marriage/children, but people vary on their age when they make the decision to "settle down". Overall, it depends less on what age a person is and more on the relationship they are currently in. If you've been in a relationship for a couple of years, likely at some point the subject has come up. Unless someone has an overwhelming desire for marriage/parenthood and views it as goal to complete by a certain point in their life, most people will not make a decision about marriage until they're involved with someone who they feel meets their requirements in a marital partner.

Some people have no interest in marriage or children at all. If a person you're dating says they don't plan of getting married or being a father, don't believe you can change their mind or that they may change their own mind in the future.

This depends on quite a few things. How mature are they. Are they willing to give 100% to someone else. Are they ready to take on the responsibilities of a committed relationship. Do theyunderstand what true love is. Can they communicate well. IF the guy is in his mid to late twenties and still parties like he's in high school he's not ready. If the guy is in his thirties and still thinks of women like objects, he's not ready. If the guy is in his forties and doesnt own any thing of value, he's not ready. If a man is in his fifties and hasn't had any lengthy relationship, he'll never be ready. If they still live with their parents, run really fast because they'll be mooches forever......IF you have been in a relationship for 2-3 years with a guy and it hasn't progressed somewhat and you have not seen any sort of commitment, stop wasting your time. You'll wait forever. The saying of why buy the cow when you already get the milk for free is basically true for immature umcommital people in general.....
