Me too. I didn’t marry until 50 and that was the first time I really wanted to get married. I would never have been ready to marry in my 20s and neither would most of my friends. I married later than most but most of them married after 30 and didn’t seem too worried.  I am not sure if things have changed or if it is just the demographic on these boards. I grew up in the northeast of the U.S.

educ8nc:  I’m 58 and a 2x MOB. The advice has really helped as I planned and survived my daughters’ weddings, 15 months apart.

Forty, hah!  You’re a mere child.  

I’m old, but I tend to forget that, including on the board.

I’m 37 and I do feel old here sometimes. But it’s also fun to see how people of various age groups approach a problem.

Yes sometimes, and then sometimes I have to remind myself that the majority here are way younger! Turned 40 this past June and was married a few days later.

I don’t necessarily feel “old” just more seasoned.  LOL!  I will be 47 when I marry for the first time next  year.  I definitely would not have been ready to get married any earlier than my mid-thirties although when I was in my twenties you couldn’t have told me that. As a single mom I think had I married any earlier it would have been a struggle to figure out who I am as a person while trying to be someone’s wife.  I am not going to pretend that is hasn’t at times been difficult watching my friends marry (someone more than once) early in life.  Plus the thought of being an “old maid” has bothered me at times but hey I feel more a woman now than ever, consider myself super sexy, and the perfect catch for any man.   My FH is so, so lucky to be getting me at the age I am now.  🙂 So yeah..I am older than most on these boards.  Is there a problem?  LOL!

45 here and a second time bride.  I feel old until I read something petty and then I am glad I have maturity in my pocket.

angyjaxon:  Yes at some point, most of us outgrow the drama. Those who don’t are the ones who marry 4-5 times.

I’ll be 40 in less than 2 week. Married at 38 for the first time and just had my DD at 39. Yep, I’m old and happy about it. So much less drama. So mush less caring about what other people think. I’m doing what makes me happy 🙂
