Basically, "adulthood" in Islam starts when you reach puberty: you are physically able to have sexual intercourse (and to bear children, for girls), you are mature enough to know which things are good for you and which things are not, and you are responsible for everything you do. According to statistics, it happens around 8-14 for girls, 11-17 for boys; but nowadays, people seem to be mentally childish till a higher age, especially in Western societies...

Marriage is a serious matter. A man is able to marry only if he can give his consent: he should be old enough and without any mental disorder. Then, he has to be able to satisfy his wife's needs: sexually and financially; don't forget that the husband has the obligation to provide for his family, and to give a mahr to his wife. Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said:

"O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty, and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting is a shield for him (from desires)."

He should also be able to take care of his wife and protect her:

"Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth." [Quran, 4:34]

You can easily notice that the minimum age depends a lot; each boy is different. Although it is sometimes difficult for young people to take a global view of their life and to learn from their mistakes, thus they don't really understand that life is not a game, but a test, and everything has to be taken seriously. Eventually, ISLAM is the key word: all you need to do is ask, Allah will help you in your decision.

I hope this answers the question.
