if they are sparring & lip-locking then they will probably spawn soon. if your water conditions are where they need to be. angels vary in size based on water condition, tank size, what type they are, etc. there are too many factors to just say "they should be THIS size". age really doesnt have anything to do with it. i mean, obviously they get BIGGER with age, but they might not be reaching maximum growth potential due to factors already listed, so you can see how it might be difficult to determine what size your fish SHOULD be when they start spawning.
with that being said, what kind of angels do you have? I have a blushing scalare that I've had for 2 years now...and she's nearly the size of my hand! but another (marble) that I have, I have had for just over a year, and he's hasnt grown nearly as much as the big one! but he's been in the same water, and fed the same as she has! and who knows how old they are...i have no clue what age I bought them at.
my mothers angels have spawned, and all i can say is, when they're ready to spawn, you will be able to notice their genitalia (egg-depositors). so just keep watching!! and good luck!!
hope this helped some. =)
