@linsical:  imagine how I feel, I was 18 when I met DH, got engaged at 26, married on our 10 year anniversary. I never thought the wedding would come and go so fast. 10 years is a long time to be with someone. and I would do it all over again.

@theEguarantee:  right?! crazy?!!!

Its been the best time of my life, I met DH at a point in my life where I was at my ultimate low and he literally was my lifesaver.

I hate when people say “why did you stay so long, why did you wait so long to get married,” i really wanna tell them to eff off, its none of your business, but I explain anyway, look how young we were, we needed time to go to school, get good jobs, save money, and especially the city we live in, we needed something that was really financiallystable!

I’m sort of the opposite, I sort of always think I’m older than I am.  I’m 26 but I feel like I should be 27 or 28.  I have no idea why.  Now that I think about it that’s really only been since I met FI.  Perhaps it’s because he’s a couple years older than me, I think we should be the same age.  Or because we’ve only been together for 2 years but it feels like I’ve known him forever.

@linsical:  I know how you feel. I met DH right after my 22nd birthday and this summer I’ll be turning 28 right after our 3rd anniversary and a few months before our baby is born. Like holy crap, how did that happen? Time flippin’ flies, doesn’t it? 

When I met DH he was concerned that I was still really young and that I might “grow out of him.” Nope, I grew alongside him, and he’s grown a lot too. It was funny because he was a bit under 27 when we met, and so we also paused at my birthday when I realized I’d crossed the line where I was older than he was when we met.

@Daizy914:  omg i feel like i’m talking to myself!!!! I literally tell FI he saved my life all the time. I was also in a dark sad place in my life when we met. And yeah, it took almost 9 years to get engaged, but seriously, we were really young when we met. So the amount of time dating is SO relative. If we met at 26 and waited 10 years to get married, i could see myself not putting up wtih that lol I seriously would not change a single thing about the road we took to get to this point!

Well, I’ve been with SO for 2.5 years, so not terribly long… But we started dating just before my 26th birthday, and I’m turning 29 this November. We’re not even engaged yet! I will definitely be in my 30s when we get married. Oi.

you know it’s funny, i was having a similar thought recently… i’m going to be 26 right after we get married and to me that feels so old.  i met my FI when I was 21 so I still feel that age.

@Daizy914:  

I hear ya! I’m 24 now, FI is 26. We started dating at 16 and 18. We’ll be 25 and 28 at the wedding (a few weeks after his birthday!). He really is my best friend and after all this time I STILL wish I had more time with him!!

I know exactly how you feel.  I realized not long ago that I would be turning 28 a few months after the wedding and I was like “Whaaaaattttt?!  When did that happen?”.  I met FI when I was 23, got engaged when I was 26.  We’ve come such a far way in those 4 years too.  We were just out of college and starting careers when we met, now we’re moving up in our careers, bought a house, and have investments and other adult things.  But, the fact that we’ve been able to grow so much together over the years reminds me that he’s the right guy for me 🙂
