I was 34.5 when I got married.  Not sure if that counts!

@Glasgowbound:  hell yeah, I’ve been engaged since age 47 and will be married one month after turning 50. I’m still barely ready.

@Glasgowbound:  It is strange though. None of my friends were thinking marriage or babies at those ages (22-27) and I used to get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach when I thought about marriage.  Most of my friends started having children around age 35 if at all.

I’m 36 and just got married three weeks ago! While I always thought I’d have gotten married earlier in life, I’m glad I didn’t. I know myself much better now, learned a lot about relationships in the past 20 years, and I really feel solid about my marriage. I don’t think I would have felt so solid (and been so confident about feeling solid, if that makes sense) were I 10 years younger. Anyway, enjoy it!!

I’ll be above 35 when I marry too.  I don’t mind it, and as glimmeringone stated I’velearned a lot in those years.  I think it would have been foolish for me to marry in my 20s as I was still in school and trying to secure my first job etc. etc.

To each their own, of course!

I can’t even imagine me getting married in my 20s. I was a first time bride 34 married 10/11/12 and Darling Husband is 37. I was no where ready for marriage in my 20s…… Lol

I wasn’t ready for marriage (or kids) in my 20’s. We were both 40 on our wedding day. Although I didn’t feel “old” on the wedding day.  So you aren’t alone! ๐Ÿ™‚ Everyone has a different time when they are ready for marriage, some in their 20’s/30’s/40’s/50’s. You have to stay true to yourself on that.

I just got married this fall, and I’m 36. I don’t consider myself “old” at all hahaha! I’m definitely smarter and wiser than I was in my 20s, that’s for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

I will be 37 when I tie the knot in October! I totally don’t feel that old, LOL, in my brain, I’m still 27! But it’s the first (and only) marriage for both of us. Fiance is 46, and you’d be surprised how many times we have been asked if it’s our second! 

I am so glad I waited until now. In my 20’s, I was having a ball, working on my career and traveling and living and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I also dated a lot of men that were just…wrong. Wink

I was two months from my 35th when we got married.  I think I might be one of the oldest bee bloggers we’ve had.  There were times when I felt quite old on the bee, even though I’m from the NYC are originally, where people often get married a little older. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m so glad I wasn’t part of the stampede that got married right after college.

I am 33 and will be 34.5 when I get married next December. It is my first time too. Many of my close friends have been married for years! I honestly had begun to think that it was not going to happen for me but I am very glad that I did not settle and that I waited for the right man. I have honestly found my soulmate. 

Bring on 2013, the most exciting year EVER!!
