@alohakay:  I very much believe that there is no such thing as an age where you are suddenly ready to get married. We were both 18, and had dated for 6 months (It isn’t too unusual in our circle to get married young and quickly though). The wedding was almost 5 months ago, and we’ve had a few arguments but we love each other, we made a commitment to each other and neither one of us could ever imagine breaking that. We are very happy.

I am currently 20, but not yet engaged. We are planning on getting married in 2015, so I will be 22 and he will be almost 24. We have been together for just over 5 years.

I don’t think 24 is that young to get married! I was 30 and my FI 32 when he proposed (actually on his 32nd bday) and we were together 9 years.

we’ll both be 23. we’ve been dating for 4 years. we will be 26 when we get married though. If you are worried, you can have a long engagement to age and see if this is really what you want.

I think relationships don’t last when both people are young because finances cause an increased amount of stress for the couple. But if finances aren’t a struggle for both of you, it might work. I also think it may be because people get engaged so quickly nowadays, I feel like some time periods aren’t enough to get engaged for SOME people. I didn’t really know I wanted to marry my gf until a couple of months ago. So i think you should really think about what you want and if you could see yourself with this person for a LONG time, if not, maybe keep dating and then rethink it.

I was 21 (he proposed a few months before my 22nd birthday). We’ve been together for 8 years and lived together for a little over 3. I’ll be 23 and he’ll be 26 when we get married in 2015 Laughing

25 is on the older side to get married where I’m from. FI proposed when I was 19, he was 21. We’d been friends for 7 years, dating for 3.
