I was 21 when I got engaged, Fiance was 23, and  we will be 23 and 25 when we get married.  I always pictured myself getting married at 24, so I’m close to that anyways.  Everyone just said “abuot time” when they found out.  🙂

 married (my birthday’s the beginning of march) and he’ll be newly 29 (his birthday in late January).

I count! I was 22 when we got engaged, he was 24. We’ll be getting married in January at which I’ll be 23 and he’ll be 25. By the time we get married we’ll have been together 7 years, and have been living together for 5… so it doesn’t feel that young.

My parents were 20 when they got married, and by the time they were my age they already had two kids, so honestly, i feel a little late to the game! My parents were only excited, they never said anything about me being too young! They love him and he’s been a part of the family so long that i’m sure they think nothing but positive thoughts about it.

Others have sometimes mentioned they think i’m too young, but I don’t hear it often and everytime i hear it i think people are crazy!

I am 20 & my husband is 21 will be 22 next month. 

I was 19 & he was 21 when we got married! Everyone was really supportive of us. We had been living together for 9 months before we got married & we have been together since I was 15 & he was 17. (Almost 5 years now.) We got married 4 days before our 4 year anniversary. I have got some of the young comments. None before we got married though. & The two comments I did get was from total strangers, one was at a nail salon & the other at a hospital.

Fiance and I are both 20. we got engaged over the summer and we’ll be getting married after I graduate next year, we’ll be 22. He’s graduated from culinary school already and working and saving up. We’ve been together since highschool. He’s been my best friend ever since we first met! 🙂 My dad was so excited when Fiance went to ask him for my hand in mariage. My mom cried, partly from happiness partly because she doesn’t want me to get divorced young like she did. My little brother said he felt sorry for Fiance lol, He LOVES Fi so much! Fiance has integrated very well with my family and I with his. That was a really big deal for me since I’m so close with my family and love to spend time with them. 

Overall I’d say we got mostly joy, support,etc. but there were some members of my family (mom, aunts,uncles) who have seen young love turn into divorce and they were a little more reserved but still congratulated us (except for one aunt by marriage, but she’s always rude)

Fiance and I are both 22.  We’ll both be 25 when we get married. When I told my dad I was engaged he literally dropped the phone and kept saying my baby is getting married over and over again lol but everyone has been supportive so far 🙂

My Fiance and I are both 22 and just got engaged but will be 24 and graduated from college when we get married. We dated 4 years before we got engaged. Everyone was very supportive except for his great grandmother who is 92 years old with dementia. Gotta say that her opinion isn’t going to change my plans though!

I am 17( 18 in March) , and my Fiance will be 20 in April. We got engaged yesterday, and everyone we have told has been nothing short of amazing. We have been together for a little over 3 years. We are both sophomores in college, and we both have decently paying jobs. Our families really just want the best for us, and have requested that we wait until after graduation to get married. However, we are in the process of purchasing a home through a family member. We do not believe in living together before marriage, so depending upon how long the process takes will decide when the time to get married is right for us. I am thankful that most people do not use my age as a gauge of my ability to make choices about my life. I wish all younger brides the best of luck in this amazing experience, and just hope that everyone has the support they deserve. 🙂

I was 23 and my FH was 24 when we got engaged and we will be 24 and 25 when we get married in Nov 12. My family were very supportive and are very happy for me. But im having issues with my work mates! They think we got engaged too early on :S (it was less than a year but we clicked the moment we met and is a year now) But i REALLY wish they would keep that to themselves!

I’m 20 and my SO is 20 also. We are both college juniors and we met at school the first semester of our freshman year. We are not officially engaged but we have plans to be engaged in the near future and we both see starting a future together. We’ll probably get married after we graduate in 2013. Many people ask me all the time if we are going to get engaged and I tell them that we have talked about it a lot. Everyone has been supportive. I think they know that we are both serious about our careers and that it is a priority for us to finish college and get good jobs so they take us seriously. My mom keeps telling me that she is fine with it as long as he is the right guy for me. She just tells me that she wants me to be happy. 

 

Sometimes I freak out a little bit about getting married right after college, but then I think about how happy we are together and how he is my best friend and I couldn’t imagine not having him in my life! 🙂

I am 21 and recently engaged.  My Fiance is 32.  We have been living together for a year and a half; together for two years.  We knew instantly that we wanted to be together forever.  His family is very supportive as this is his first marriage and their other son has been married a while.  He is a really young soul and everyone figured that he would not get married; he had a really painful relationship from 20-25 and just lived life playing and having fun with the guys and working hard in his career until now.  I think it’s perfect because he has had all of the experiences to mature a man but still is very young at heart, and I am an old soul, so we balance each other out.  And he is set in his career so it makes it easier on us while I am fighting my way financially through college.  My family is not as happy for us but are definitely warming up to the idea – especially when we told them the wedding is in Maui.  They are all women and most of the women married young and divorced shortly thereafter; they definitely wanted me to be done with school before I wed.  I did too, but you don’t plan when you meet the one, right??

I am 22 and was 21 when we got engaged. My Fiance is 27 and will be 28 when we get married. Both of our families have been very happy and supportive from the very beginning. It was one of those situations where he and I just knew that we were going to get married after about two weeks into dating. I kept warning my family that he would be the one, and three months later I was right.

When we got engaged(I’m 24 but I was 23 when it happened) my mom’s boss said “Why would you do that? You know the younger you get married the more likely you are to get divorced?” I could have hurt him but I didn’t. Everyone else has been very supportive… well mostly everyone haha. My Fiance has been perfect for the very start for me and we always just knew.

I’m 23 and my Fiance is 25. We started dating when I was 17 and we have two kids…Our families reactions were a mix of excitement and “it’s about time!”
