We aren’t married yet, got engaged on our 3 year anniversary, when we were both 21 going on 22. Will probably be getting married at 25/26, after 6/7 years together.

ETA: I haven’t had to deal with any ‘too young’ comments IRL, just on here. OP you are not too young!

We are getting married on our 8th anniversary, we will both be 24. We got engaged at 22 a couple of weeks before we turned 23. No one has really made comments about us being too young because we’ve always been mature for our age and my family and his dad’s side think that we’re great together. His mom is not thrilled, but it’s more of a ‘stealing her son’/she’s losing control of him issue.

We will have been together for 6 years in October, and have been engaged for 2 1/2 of those.

I’m 24, He’s gonna be 29 right before our anniversary. 

OP while i’ve never been told i’m too young, everyone thinks its crazy that we’ve been together since i was 18 and hes my one and only. One of his friends even drunkenly tried to convince FI that he needs to “make me get some experience” and i’m not talkng like in the beginning

By the time we get married, we will have been together for almost 3 1/2 years (known each other for 6 1/2) and engaged for just under 2 years. I’ll be 21 and he’ll be 23. IRL, I’ve never been told that I’m too young.

We’ve been together 5.5 years now, 6.5 when we get married. We’ll both be 22 when we get married, but he will turn 23 the next week. The only people I’ve gotten “too young!” comments from are people younger than I am. Everyone else is supportive.

We’ve been together since we were 16 (7.5 years). Hopefully we’ll be engaged within the next 6 months as we have earmarked 2015 when we’ll be 25 for getting married.
