I’m 21 and will get married on May 5, 2012. I’m really excited about what my life is going to be, and how I’m going to be able to experience it with my FI. We’ve grown so much together, and are not the same as we were when we first met. I just wish my family was a little more supportive of everything.
But enoguh about me, what about you? How is wedding planning? How are your families handling everything? And do you have anything you’d like to vent?

My husband and I got married when we were 22/23. We are both very mature for our age and bought a house before I was 20. I didn’t listen to people and still don’t about our relationship!

While I’ll be 24 on our wedding day, J will have just turned 29. 🙂
I’ve always been very mature for my age. It has a lot to do with my past and how I grew up. I decided to take on a lot more responsibilities than I needed to. There are times where I wish I could act my age (more when I first turned 21), but I’ve accepted the fact that I am a bright, young, successful woman.
As for the wedding planning, things are going. Slowly, but surely. Which is fine by me. We haven’t hit the one year mark yet (but we’re inching our way towards it!). I really need to find a photographer, but I’m procrastinating. I have no idea why!
I haven’t gone dress shopping yet. I’m still trying to drop a few pounds before I do, but sadly, I don’t think that’ll happen. 🙁
Everything is in order regarding the ceremony, venue, etc.
Oh, and I really should get a move on with my DIY projects. Yikes.
449 days and counting!

FI and I will both be 22 and we couldn’t be happier.. We have known each other for over 10 years and been best friends for most of it.. We were each other’s first loves, and even as we grew, that never changed.. He still is my best friend.. We’ve been through a lot together for how young we are too, and we’ve made it through stronger than ever.. We’re getting married this November, and it’s coming up fast!! I thought it would never get here, but here it is.. Pretty much all the planning is set, and I’m just waiting for time to pass to take care of more small details..

I’ll be a month away from my 22nd birthday when I get married. I feel lucky that I don’t get too much judgement from either of our families about our age. My mom has two sisters that got married at 18, and are still very much in love with their husbands today. My FI’s family is religious, and think that getting married is the right thing to do. We have been together for three years now, and it will be over 4 when we wed.
I don’t get when people say that you are “rushing in” just because of your age. To me, ‘rushing in’ is when you meet, date, get engaged, and get married in a year or less. And even in those cases, they have every chance of being sucessful marriages. But ‘rushing in’ is not dating for three years, and being engaged for over a year after that. Lol, sorry, I had to vent!

I am 20 and FI is 21, He will be 22 and I will be 2 months shy of my 21st birthday. We have been together for 5 years and 3 months and were best friends 6 months before that. We have a little girl who is 18 months old and we are so ready to tie the knot. We love each other so much and are highschool sweethearts 🙂
My family and his family are very supportive! They are excited that we are getting married and going to school and doing what we need to be doing. Im not being forced to marry my FI just because we have a kid, we are wanting to get married! Right now we are living with my dad saving up and going to school and we will be moving probably a year after we are married 🙂
Congrats early 20’s brides 😛

Everyone in my family has gotten married young. My parents were 21, grandparents were all teenagers, my sister was 20, and we were 23. I think it was the perfect choice for us!

We’ll be 23, he’ll be 24 w/in a month though. Part of our stipulation for getting married is that one of us has a full time job that can support both of us and offers health insurance.

I’ll be 18 when I get married! And my fiance will be 19(less than 3 weeks from 20)!! But both of our families are supportive!

I’m so happy for you! I’m glad to have some sort of support, even if it’s in the form of people I’ve never met being so positive. =] Thank you and I hope you all have beautiful weddings and amazing marriages!

I’m 22 (23 in a few months) and he’s 28, we’re getting married in 3 weeks! We’ve been through a lot together and I know we’ve got a strong relationship. We don’t get comments so much about my age, but more about how we aren’t established. Honestly, I’m ok with the fact that we don’t have a lot, I’m looking forward to working for everything together. My family was hesitant at first, but they’ve really become great and supportive. They’re paying for the wedding and letting us live with them until we’re more financially stable. Hopefully once I finish law school and take the bar in Feb. we’ll be good to go, I can’t wait to get a job and have our own place! I hope everything goes well for you! Family sometimes takes their time, but hopefully they’ll come around! Good luck!

I was 19 when we got engaged (DH was 20) and we were 21 and 22 on our wedding day. My auntmom was a little hesitant, but DH really grew on her. I was entering my last semester of college when we got married and am currently working two jobs (one’s an internship). DH is about to start an apprenticeship with a local electrician. So, all the naysayers who say your life will be ruined if you get married young are wrong–being married hasn’t held either of us back, and to tell you the truth, it’s not much different than NOT being married.

I’ll be 23 and he’ll be 27 when we get married. He proposed to me last year before I turned 22. Overall, I think our families are very supportive of us. My guys parents were married fairly young and my father had his first marriage around my age. My mother is the only person who would like me to wait. However, my mother is also a militant feminist and in her opinion I’m throwing my life away by getting married before I’m 35. I think after I showed her my dress and everything she is warming to the idea lol.
