@lavenderstone:  Not a young Bride myself (I’ll be 27 when we marry), but I wanted to congratulate you and your DH! Being married isn’t always easy, no matter how old you are when you get married.

@lavenderstone:  Congratulations! That is wonderful. May your eight happy years become eighty 🙂 I try not to judge young brides and grooms. I was 30 when I married, but it was fast, and people judged us for that. It just goes to show though, true love doesn’t worry about what everyone else thnks 🙂

@lavenderstone:  These days, 8 years is a big deal, regardless of age! Happy anniversary!

As a younger bride (23), I get a lot of flack from people who don’t know me for getting married so young. It certainly gets annoying, but like you, I have always been an “old soul.” The people who know FI and I best are 100% supportive, which is really great. I feel terrible when a young bride comes here with an issue but people automatically write her off because she is young. She could be having the same issue as a 30 year old, hand handling it the same way, but people will still blame the entire issue on her age and maturity.

I suppose I could have married FI when we were 19. We had been together 3 years at that point, but it would have been  mistake for us. Neither of us had careers, although we had been living together a couple years at that point. 

Now we’re 26 and newly engaged. I’m glad we have waited this long and will continue to wait.

@lavenderstone:  Congrats!


FH and I got engaged when we turned 19, getting married in 5.5 months at age 22 (: I love being able to get married young so I can start our family young.

How long were you together before getting married? By the time we are married it will be over 8 years!

@lavenderstone:  Congratulations! We celebrate 11 years together this year (we will be 26 and 28), but will be married for one year at that point. We could have married sooner, but it made more sense for us to wait.

@lavenderstone:  we got married at 19 & 20 too, except he was 19 and I was 20. Thank you for the inspirational story. We haven’t had many people comment on our age, per say, but we had plenty of people ask me when I was due! Apparently the only reasonable excuse for us being married so young was that I was knocked up. It was actually pretty humorous. I didn’t really care what people assumed about our marriage, but to just come right out and ask like that just seemed rude.
