I just turned 23 when we got engaged, and will be 25 when we get married, and have never been asked this question.

I’m amazed at all these people who get asked this.  To me young is like 20 and under, but I think 21 and over is around the time that a lot of couple start thinking about marriage.  Maybe it’s regional though?

Yep. It’s very frustrating. Although I don’t mind hearing “wow, so young!” as opposed to “wow, you must be really sure!” Um, yes! I am really sure. Thanks for asking. 

Oh well. Comes with the territory I guess. It’s kinda funny as lots of my friends were asking me where the ring was when FH and I started dating and I was 19 then! For some reason it didn’t matter then! 😛

Yup I am 23 and I get it all the time! I really don’t think 23 is young lol I mean its younger but I am not 16! What annoys me the most are the women who like to tell me how they will never let their daughters get married untill they are “accomplished” and “have seen the world”. Uh WTF I did graduate college, I did graduate my cosmetology course and yes I am accomplished. Does getting married stop you from seeing the world or being a better person? I don’t think so! LOL sorry this turned into a major rant!

@JennyChicago Definitely hate that! So I’m 24 (23 at time of engagement) that doesn’t mean I’m not going to pursue my dreams for my future just because I’m getting married! Urgh. Besides, isn’t being a good wife and a good homekeeper just as important to some girls who want to do that? People sometimes have very narrow perceptions of the world.

I turned 25 a week after our wedding, and I’m still getting it!  In the last people, I’ve gotten several comments.  It is so weird!

I was 21 when I got married.  I got the ‘so young’ comments from some people but I just ignored it.  We waited until after we graduated college and were responsible enough to purchase our own home while we were engaged.

@jedcaj – I know that from living in two major cities in Canada, my friends from out west are way more focused on finishing school, establishing their careers etc before they are even thinking about marriage.  Now that I live in the “praries” it seems like people here get married a lot younger 🙂 whether they’ve finished school and got their careers going or not.

I will be 1 month shy of 24 when we get married but the only time I ever got this comment was from creepy men at my bachelorette party!!

I was 18 when we got engaged and eventhough I haven’t heard anything but “about time!” from my family and his, I’ve heard A LOT from people who have never met me before…it like yes I’m obviously young and yes I’m engaged, get over it!

I got married at 23 but hardly got it. Maybe cuz i’m tall and scary and wear sunglasses all the time. Laughing

I haven’t heard that. It may be because FH and I have dated since we were 17. Alot of people have said “It’s about time” and I was like “We are only 23!” . lol

I’m 21 and will be 22 when we get married and mostly what I hear is from people my own age (not friends-just people I meet) going on and on about how they would never get married this young and they want to have a life and not be tied down. It’s frustrating because without fail they try to tack on a super insincere “but I’m sure it’s fine for you” line at the end. Seriously?
