  • Wedding: July 2011

We’ve been together since we were 19. Got engaged at 26, married at 27, first baby at 32, second at 34 (any day now) 

we could have got married right out of uni but wanted to have a few years more to grow up first.  We started trying for children at 29 but it took us a while first time round.

  • Wedding: September 2018

We’ve known each other 10 years this coming March. Got engaged when I was 27, married at 28. Darling Husband was 34. (Short engagement meant he didn’t have a birthday). Our relationship wasn’t plain sailing (we were on and off) so when we finally decided to get married we had no reason to wait.

jazzyb123 :  Me and my fiance were engaged Dec. 2018 and are 23. We are getting married in June, a day before he turns 24, a month before I turn 24. We started dating when we had both just turned 22 in summer 2017.

Met a few months past my 19th birthday (college sweethearts); he was a year ahead of me. Engaged at 20 years 8 months. Got married 9 months later. Waited 5.5 years to have our first child, after we built our first home and got through graduate school. Still married 40+ years later.

  • Wedding: June 2019

I was a month away from 22 and my fiancé was almost 25 when we started dating. We weren’t in any big rush and wanted to wait until we owned a home and were pretty financially stable before getting married. Which took a little longer than we thought, but it all worked out ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dated for seven years. Got engaged a little before my 29th birthday (and a few months before his 32nd). We will be getting married two weeks after I turn 30. He will still be 32, but close to 33 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wedding: August 2018 - Location

Engaged at 27, married at 28 (him 29). We were together since undergrad but wanted to settle into adult life for a bit. It took longer for him to get his career going because he ended up going back to school after a year out of uni.

We’ve known each other since we were 18/19, we got married at 20/21, now 22 and 23, my husband being a year my senior. It sounds mad to say it outloud but I suppose I really just dont feel that young, like you OP I’m clearly old before my time! x
