Personally, I’d consider anyone not of drinking age to be a young bride..(central PA)

Considering I’m getting married at 30, I think 27 is the cut off for a young bride!  Mostly because I couldn’t imagine being ready to be married when I was younger than that 🙂  I don’t think it’s just cities that make people have higher ages, I also think it’s career path.  Most of my friends are professionals and hardly any of them are married and they’re all in their late 20’s and early 30’s.  When you’re in school until you’re 27, 28, 29, it’s hard to feel like a “real” adult and get married!

ETA:  Live in Washington DC now, but spent most of my adulthood until now in  Philadelaphia and NYC.

Anyone not out of college? I think 25 is the cutoff.

I’m 26 (and was 26 when we got married) and I’m kind of on the fence about whether I consider myself a young bride or not. We’re at a phase in life where most of our friends are getting engaged or married so it doesn’t seem abnormally early in our circle, but we’re early enough in that phase that it still seems kind of crazy to refer to DH as “my husband.”

I feel like there are already 100 posts on this topic.  OP- it varies, and it gets controversial. I would say under 24 is pretty young.  But, I was married at 22 and divorced at 25, so that might just be my jaded personal experience.

I guess I would say that anyone who is not at least 25 when they get married would be considered “young”. Just one opinion based on nothing other than….well, my opinion! Lol

The current average ages for a first marriage in the US are: 28.4 for men, 26.5 for women

So I suppose younger than that lol?

I’m 25, will be 10 days shy of 26 at the wedding.  I don’t FEEL like a young bride but since I’m one of the very first of my friends to get married I guess I sort of am.  I guess I’m on the border.  But any younger than 22 I would consider definitely young, 22-24 young, and 24-26 I’d say ‘early average’ because around 24 was when I saw a definite uptick in the number of people getting engaged.  I grew up in NJ and live in Chicago now.

23 or 24ish? But I think it’s more to do with maturity than anything. (I’m 21)

I’m 21 and just got married and I would consider that young. We got engaged when I was in my last semester of college. I live in South Florida, but for me, it has nothing to do with the where, as much as my religion. All my friends are getting married, as well, and a lot of them have babies. Many of my friends have been getting married since we were all 18. And none of them could legally drink at their wedding. I actually thought about how happy I am that I didn’t get into a marriage before I was of legal drinking age! Lol… Also, many of my friends live in New York, for purposes of you asking what city. This is what it is in my religion, so please no judgments or anything like that. It just is what it is for me and my community.

If 23 and under I think young based on the fact that the typical college graduate is 21, then a yr or two in the daily grind of the working world.

But teenagers is super young.  But then a good friend of mine was married at 19, divorced with a daughter at 21.  Another friend kept putting off the proposal, she’s 24 and will 25 at her wedding but thinks she is super young.
