you can marry anytime, not sure if it makes any difference but even if it does it's not important in the normal difficulty.
and the party limit is actually fine, it helps because there's no fun in sending all the story characters + 20 Streetpass recruited units to decimate the enemy. :P

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

Chrom will marry by the following criteria: http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/3ds/fire_emblem_kakusei_aw...

Any other character can marry at any time and most female characters before Valm can produce a child (Avatar and Chrom will also have their own children).

It's good practice to marry as many as possible so that you can get the child characters. Most of them eventually surpass their parents in stats and skills due to having more available classes to choose from.

Not only that, but married couples are also remarkably strong when paired up. Pair 'em up, and they'll almost always have their spouse do a dual strike, guard, or support! This leads to already overpowered units like Donnel becoming literal beasts when paired up + married.

Oh, and don't forget to have the "children" units get married once all unlocked. That'll prove to be extremely useful to you in later chapters. And if you aren't sure what couples work best together for marriage, this article is an extremely handy referral: http://bit.ly/1gJlr1u. It'll show you the optimal pairings for a truly clobbering team. Go take a look if you have the time.

Actually, it's impossible to marry everyone. There are 6 male children + 6 females + Morgan. And the number of possible unmarried parent characters is pretty high too

Lol, my MU is over powered compared to the rest of my party. Not on purpose though. How should I balance it out?

1. Either move him to the back lines or don't put him in the battle at all (you can do that, only Chrom is required in the chapters and paralogues)
Or
2. Buy Reeking Boxes and train your lower leveled members.

Exponential Growth isn't even that good for grinding, really.

I don't mean to contradict other users, but I'd recommend NOT putting MU at the back or taking him out. Level up other characters with DLC (I recommend lost bloodlines) or reeking boxes )or you could use spotpass teams, but those don't work very well). But keep using him. You want your MU to be strong. It can make the difference later in the game between saving a character and losing them. Keep leveling him up and re-classing him, because eventually he can be the best unit in your team, until Morgan. Later in the game, you'll be glad he's so strong (rouges and redeemers).

EDIT: Never mind, forget all this^. I just saw that you're on casual, normal. I thought I read that you were in lunatic for some reason. MU doesn't really matter in normal mode.

Well, I was giving suggestions without resorting to DLC. But I recommend Reeking Boxes. Yes, keep your MU strong, potentially the strongest in your party, but don't fret if you need to sit him out for a chapter or a paralogue. Either that, or pair him up with someone else and let him support. (This seems like a better idea)

People who say EXPonential growth are not good for grinding are not doing it right. Reeking boxes give you fewer EXP in most places

Also, you can use other DLC maps to grind (like Rogues and Redeemers)

If you plan on marrying people for stats, I recommend getting marriages that either will give you OP children, or make up for weaknesses. Like putting Donnel (little magic) with Lissa (little attack) will give you a unit that usually dual strikes with magic and strength. Plus the Owain that follows is a favorite of mine because he gets Armsthrift and Galeforce if done right, which are two of my favorite skills.
