I should get married by 30

or

I should get married with 30

    'I should get married with 30' sounds like more fun though!

1 Answer 1

I should get married by 30 -is correct.

You use 'by' when showing the limit of age there.

I should get married with 30 - is incorrect.

Additionally, when you want to say someone whom are you married to...you use 'to'.

I'm married to a doctor.

  • In practice, you'd hear "I should get married by the time I'm 30" often as well.
