Praise be to Allaah.

Islam does not give a specific age for marriage, either for the husband or for the wife. Both should reach the age of Maturity. In Mughni al-Muhtaaj, it says: “(Marriage) becomes waajib (obligatory) if a person fears fornication… And it was said that it becomes obligatory if a person has made a vow (nadhr) to get married.” Then concerning the ruling with regard to women: “If she needs to get married, i.e., she has physical desires, or needs maintenance, or she is afraid that immoral people may take advantage of her… it is preferable (mustahabb) for her to get married, because this will protect her religion and her chastity, and she can enjoy what her husband spends on her, and other advantages.” There is also said that a man should not consummate marriage with his young bride until she is physically able to bear intercourse. This varies from one time, place and environment to another.

Hope this helps.
