My mom was 19 and my dad had just turned 21, I believe. They divorced 17 years later.

DBF’s parents were 27 (dad) and 34 (mom) when they got married. They divorced after 20+ years.

I’m 27 and won’t be married, at a minimum, until 28 (DBF would be 29). I’m quite happy with it this way!

My parents were both 18 when they got married, and were 32 when they divorced. My dad remarried at 45. My mom at 40. My mom is now divorced. My dad is still married 5 years later.

FI’s mom was 30 and his dad was 35 when they got married.

I will be 26 when I get married. My Fiance will be 29.

My parents were 23 when they got married.  I was 27 and my husband was 29.

My parents had me when they were 25, so they’re giving me a hard time about that 😉

My mom was 32, almost 33 and my dad was 27 (his second marriage, he got married the first time at 16!). Fiance and I will both be 26, he is 4 months older. I don’t remember how old his parents were, but they were even younger than my dad, though, I think.

I am 28 and Fiance is 26….my mom was 22 and my dad 28 when they married. She made it clear that she wanted all of us girls to wait until we were older and established to get married. And we all did…While my mom married after she got her bachelors, they started having babies 9 months later and well she wished they had waited longer before having children. 

Fiance dad was through with medical school and residency  when he married and his mom in her later twenties. Fiance made sure to wait until after law school for us to get engaged. I must say it was hard waiting and I see now that it worked out for the best versus us getting married younger and less established (even though I wanted to lol).
