One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

What age can girls marry
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Q-1: Does islam say anything about age of marrying a girl what should be age difference.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3090 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, 'When someone with whose religion and character you are satisfied asks your daughter in marriage, accede to his request. If you do not do so, there will be temptation on earth and extensive corruption.'
Although Islam guides and encourages the believers to hasten to marry, it does not stipulate an age or time limit for a girl to marry, nor does Islam restrict the believers regarding the age difference between the spouses in marriage. One is at absolute liberty to choose to marry their girls at their time and age of convenience.
Q-2: Till what age the women or men need sex as per Islam or what ever source of Info.
Islam does not restrict or stipulate or prescribe an age after which it is discouraged or unlawful to have sex. Although it is only natural that one’s desire for sex diminishes with age, it is possible that one who is of an abject old age still has the strength and desire for sexual intercourse….and there is absolutely no harm as long as the person fulfills their sexual desires lawfully and within the prescribed boundaries of Islam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
