Just wondering what age you had in your head as “the age” for marriage.
Compared to the actual age you were when you got married.
Growing up I always thought age 23 would be perfect. I got engaged at 21 and thought I was right on track, but then that relationship broke up when I was 23.
Then, I got married at 27.
What’s your story?

When I was younger I thought 28 was the perfect age bc I would be done with grad school, settled into a career, enjoy the married life for a couple of years before TTC around 30. I wasn’t far off in getting married at 29!

Hmmm I never really thought about it but I guess I figured 25-30 and I will be 29 exactly on that day.

I thought I’d be in my 30s. a psychic told my mom I’d be 32.
I was 26 when we got married.

But if I had gotten married at 21 to the guy I was with at the time, I am 150% certain it would have ended in divorce and the man I will marry is billions of times better to,for,with me.

I’m kind of reversed. I always thought I would get married around the age of 25 or 26, at the earliest. As I continued to date my fiance, it became readily apparent that he was an incredible spouse and person. After we had dated for 7 years, and gone through a lot together, I really felt that I wanted to make sure that if something ever happened to one of us, there was no question of our status as a couple. So, I’m getting married EARLIER than I had ever planned at the age of 23.

Getting married at 26 (1 month shy of 27)
Thats the timeline ever since my teens and with no bfs lols
Once into a relationship i realized that by 3 years of being with someone and living with that person at least a year is more than sufficient to know if you want to spend the rest of your life with that person… Not necesarily be engaged by 3 years but know for sure i and also my partner wants to marry me down the road.. my FI knew of my thoughts and he propose to me at 1 year and 8 months and been living together for 10 months.. :)) he was a little ahead on the timeline but i am not complaining :))))) we will be married two days before our 3 years anniversary :))

When I was younger I thought I’d get married around 25. I will be getting married just a few months after turning 22. I don’t think I was too far off!

Not sure about I thought wedding wise, but I thought id have a baby by 27, And that id get married sometime before that. Well I’m getting married at 27 so 28 is more likely for babies…
