I was 36 and he was 46 when we got engaged. Married less than a year later. I waited a long time to settle down. I’m the opposite, I feel a lot younger than I really am. Probably because I’m still finishing up college so I feel like I’m 25.

  • Wedding: June 2020

We met in the first grade at 5/6, began talking and hanging out as friends at 13/14, started dating our senior year of high school at 17/18, became long distance when I went to grad school at 22/23, started living together again at 27/28, engaged at 28/29, and will be married at 30/31.

We had talked about getting married within the first year of dating, but it wasn’t a priority while we were in school. We started talking about engagement seriously when I was about halfway through my grad program. I ended up being ready to get engaged about two years before he was; it was the first time we had differing views on an important and personal topic, and we had trouble talking about it. It raised issues that we’ve both needed to address and work on, but since the engagement we’ve been working on it together, and it has been reassuring in a way, even during the difficult conversations.

  • Wedding: May 2019 - Green Bay, WI

Met in June 2015 at age 23 (he was almost 27), started dating in October 2016 at almost 25 (he was 28), engaged in July 2018 at 26 (he was almost 30) and getting married in May 2019 at 27 (just before he turns 31). 

We met at work originally, and he and I were dating other people at the time. Both of those relationships ended around the beginning of 2016 and then 8-ish months later we started dating.

Met in college at age 19 (me) and 23 (him) and engaged at ages 23 and 28. Can’t wait for June 2020! I’ll be 24 and he’ll be 29. We would have loved to do this a year or two ago, but with school and jobs and trying to save for a place in a high cost of living area, time and money have been flying!
