FI proposed on our 6th anniversary when we were both 26, and we’ll be getting married 3 weeks after our 8th anniversary at the age of 28. I’ve never thought of 28 being too young, but we’ve still gotten the “you’re too young comments” lol
I don’t really let it bother me, but I do find it interesting that people think this way.
On the flip side, I have a friend who got married at 24 and she made a comment about my friend who is 31 and just got engaged as being “old to have just gotten engaged” which is rediculous! 31 isn’t old!
Anyone else heard things like this?

@memo: I got told I was too young. But that was from a stranger that didn’t know my true age. So he looked at me like I was crazy when I replied “Not really. I’m 29.” Haha, he thought I was about 20.

Nope! I was 25 when we got engaged and 26 when we got married, and no one ever mentioned my age either way.
On the other hand, my dad thinks I will be way too young to have a baby in 3 years when we’re planning on trying, lol.

@memo: Nope. I was 24 when I got engaged and 25 when I was married (DH was 27). Nobody ever mentioned being too young. Then again, we dated for 10 years before getting married, so I think a lot of people thought it was “about time.”

No. No one says it but I’m sure they’re all thinking “Good Lord, walk down the aisle already!!”
Haha I’m only 27 but all of my friends are married.

I haven’t had it said to my face but my mother did tell me how she told the news of my engagement to my uncles and their response was, “Isn’t she a bit young to get married??”. However, that’s because they all seem to think that I’m younger than what I am and upon being reminded by my mother that I’m now 26, they all agreed that it was a good age to get married lol.

Yes! I was 24 when I got engaged and will be 26 when we get married and I got told i was too young alot! I don’t listen to these comments because most people saying things are acquantances 4x my age and dont know me, or are acquantainces who are hurt because they have been waiting to get engaged. My friends and family know that i dont rush into decisions and wouldn’t be getting married unless i was 100% sure. I honestly never saw myself getting married so I never thought of a “perfect age” that it should happen!

Ok, this annoys me a little. (Not because of you girls, but the people who judge by age)
First of all, i will be 21 when my partner will propose to me andhe’ll be 25. I don’t think anyone has the right to say ‘you’re to young’
Love is not judged by age, it is the matter of fact that you are commited to one another. Love has no age 🙂
Enjoy your day ladies.

I’m 26 now, and I occasionally have strangers notice my rings, ask if I’m married, and then tell me I look far too young to be married. I had a new co-worker recently assume that I’m 20, so apparently I look younger than I am.
With the exception of my dad, no one we know said anything to my face when we got married (I was 22) but I got comments from strangers about it then, too.

I think its odd how people get so jugmental. I am also 28 and get the to young thing… i think its bc there is a new group of people who are getting married in their mid 30s so its like ok if u did not get marreid in the 1st rush (20-24) they think your clearly waiting till later???
Ok i am totally reaching i dont get it at all. I got the too young when i was 21 and lets be real that didn’t work out so i personaly at 21 was too young. Hearing it at 28 is i think people being jealous or just wanting to poke wholes … though i lost 60 lbs and poeple think i am 21-24 now witch is wonderful lol makes me feel great but maybe that why i am getting to young maybe you are just fresh faced
I also get a load of flack for the 13 year age dif if you have a larger age dif it might be more that i think thats why i get it

No, but there are plenty of people who think that we are too young to have children.
I am 30….

I got told I was too young to be engaged by the shop worker who I had asked to show me wedding rings! I was 24 when we got engaged and 25 when we were married. It’s younger than I thought I’d be but a lot of things don’t happen like we plan them to.
I do find the judging really annoying. I look about 16 so when people see my wedding ring they seem to think they have a right to tell me how they feel about my personal life. I just loving watching their faces drop when I tell them I’m 25 and that they can fuck off.

Im 24 and getting married in June, my fiance and I have been together 2 years and even though no one has outright said anything about us being too young, some people we tell have this strange reaction which makes me think thats what they are thinking. I think its just silly, we are the ones getting married and we know what we are doing. I think its good that we get to spend some years together in married life before we decide to have children. People should keep their negative opinions to themselves!

No, but I was at a bachelorette party for a friend And she got the weirdest comment once. She was all dressed up iw a tiara and bride to be sash. Some lady who was probably around 60 or so came up to her and said. “don’t get married, you are ruining your life. You are going to regret all this in a year, don’t do it!” She has NEVER MET the bride or groom.
