littlemisssouthernbride:  I’ll be 21 when we get married. All the advice I have right now is that y’all have made it work so don’t give up in the future.  I believe marriage should be worked out if it can be saved. (As long as no abuse or unfaithfulness) Everyone just throws in the white flag these days!

People look down on young couples getting married these days!! It sickens me. I’ve been with my man longer than some thirty year Olds have been married!

 Me! I’m 23, will be 24 when I get married. Fiance too, we’re 2 months apart. We’ve been together a year and a half, lived together for a year. I knew I was gonna marry him a week after we started dating, so we didn’t see the point in waiting πŸ˜›

21 and getting married in 2 months!! Been together almost four years, lived together for 3 and engaged for two! I love being young and getting married. I love having grown so much with Fiance in the past four years, maturing together and loving each other though all the struggles we have had.

littlemisssouthernbride:  I am getting married December 2015! I will still be 19 and he will have just turned 20. I will turn 20 in February. We have dated for over 7 years (since 6th grade!). He proposed on Valentine’s Day this year. I’ve had some negative feedback from a few people, but I honestly couldn’t care less! We know that we are more mature than the average 19-20 year olds by far! Negativity stems from the fact we are young and I’m still in school (I have 3 years to go but have a steady part-time job & actually get paid to go to school from scholarships). Fiance has a steady, nice job. He graduates in December. So financials aren’t a factor in deciding to wait or not. My advice to you would be to ignore the negativity. You know if you are ready or not for marriage, not anyone else! And it’s none of their business. All in all, I am excited for our upcoming day and I’m excited to (finally) be marrying the only man I could ever see myself being with! I feel that I won’t be “missing out” on anything in my life by marrying young as some people say but instead being able to experience more with husband!

My situation is slightly different. Though personally I am a young bride. I am recently 23 and my Fiance is 33. We have had only excitement and congratulations for our marriage, which is in…28 days :). Congrats on your upcoming engagement and future wedding x

I’m so happy to find a thread about young brides that isn’t all negativity and bitchyness! Wow! So grateful! 

Hi, I’m ancientculturesdramaqueen, I will be married in a hair over two months, on August 8th 2015 to the love of my life, who will be 23, myself turning 20 in July. We have been together for 3yrs, engaged for 2, living together for nearly 2 as well. 

We’ve only met with positivity from our friends and family who are close to us and know us and our relationship, I’ve found that strangers find it harder to accept but I guess to each his own, besides, I think those haters who say marriage is the ends of your life/individuality/adventures/etc are DOING IT WRONG! Why wouldn’t I want to do all those things WITH my husband?

Congratulations to all the young brides!  Fiance and I have been together since I was 18.. I always thought I would be a young bride but he waited 6 1/2 years to propose and we have a 3 year engagement.  I’ll be 27 when we finally tie the knot on our 9 year anniversary and he will be 32   You guys are making me feel old πŸ™‚

My husband and I have been together six and a half years now. We’ve been living together for six years, married for two. It’s been a hell of a ride with him, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I was just shy of 17 when we started dating (he was 19, almost 20). 17/20 by the time we moved in together, 20/23 at the time of the engagement and 21/24 at our wedding. Now we are 23 and 26, and so happy. It’s mostly been smooth sailing as far as our families’ acceptance is concerned, with a few hiccups along the way.

My advice to you (like many PP here) is to ignore the negativity. If the two of you are happy, why should it matter what a bunch of naysayers think? Also, never go to bed angry πŸ˜› I know it sounds silly but I’ve done it only a handful of times and trust me when I say waking up the next morning angry only makes things so much worse. I always make sure I say I love you to him before either one of us leaves the house/hangs up the phone/goes to bed. If something were to go wrong, I would want him to know that I do love him.
