I got engaged at 22 and will be 23 when we get married.  My family was happy, but they want us to wait until “after graduation” for the wedding.  The thing is, I already have 2 bachelor’s degrees and I only have one year left in my graduate program.  We plan on getting married during my last year of school because we don’t see any problem with it.  I think my family is warming up to the idea.  Both of our families are happy for us but they are afraid that we’re getting married so young so that we can have children young, and that’s something they don’t want.  (We do want to start a family young, but that’s another story.)

I’m 18, Fiance is 22..I’ll be 19 when we get married though! Our familes could not have been happer

 

the lady at Bullards where we bought our new bed from actually laughed at us when we told her we were getting married..she said OH! I thought you were brother and sister! You’re so young!…

 

We get that everwhere, or “are you pregnant?” NO, rude.

Fiance was 20 and I was 21 when we got engaged. I will be 22 when we are married and Fiance will be 21. Fiance will be 22 two months after. Both of our parents are fully supportive of us getting married. They trust that we are making the right decision. They actually had been waiting for us to get engaged for a while. When Fiance asked my dad for his blessing, my dad said he thought he would have asked long ago. Fiance and I have been together for six years now so we know that this is right for us. We will both have finished our bachelors degress by the time we are married and will be financially fit to live on our own (aside from school loans, yikes!). I think that age is just a number and that someone can be 18 and not too young to marry whereas there are some 27 year olds who are still too young or not ready for marriage. Everybody is different with things like this so I never think it is fair to write someone’s marriage off because of their age.

I can understand 18-23-ish as an age range for young brides…anything above that seems about “normal” or average to me? Am I missing something?

I will be 23 when we are engaged, 25 when we are married 🙂

@bigcitybee:  Totally agree! My fiance and I were both 25 when we got engaged, we will be 26 when we are married. I do not consider 24+ to be in the “young brides” category. We have both lived on our own, paid our bills, worked in professional capacities for 4 years now. Not old by any means, but certainly not at the same stage of life as a 20 or 21 year old.

We got engaged when we were 20/21, and we’re both going to be 24 when we get married, and we’ve been together for almost 8 years. I’m not in contact with any of my family, but his were all really happy for us.

He hadn’t told anyone he was going to propose, and when we came back from our night out to his parents place, his sister was so excited she got her parents out of bed and we all drank champagne at 1am lol.

I am 25 and he is 26 but we will be 26 and 27 by the time of the wedding. My parents were thrilled about our engagement. His parents were happy but more suprised. I am actually amazed at how many people (not our parents) still say I am too young to be getting married. I will have just entered my late 20’s, I have a job that is a stepping stone to my career and am and have been financially independent. How is that too young? Of course a lot of those people are the same people who think that an 11 month engagement is too soon.

My fiance and i are 23 and we will be 23 when we get married. I don’t think age has much to do with it. It’s all about if you know the person well enough and are mature enough to know you want to spend the rest of your lives together. If your family sees that you love eachother and are responsible enough to be married and live an adult life and are not just getting married because that’s what young people are doing, then i thin kyour family will come to terms with it and be supportive of your decision. But if you have been dating for a few months and you think you need to get married, they might have a reason to be upset, only because they don’t want you to rush into something you might later regret.

@lexusalizabeth:  I am a young bride to be!!  20 years old will be 21 when we get married. I simply can not wait!! I am dealing with telling people (well we have been engaged since 2010) but I dealt with it then by just telling them and if they said your to young I just responded with well we truly love and care for each other and have our lives planned out on how to handle some upcoming moments.  Granted some people even my mother were not to happy about the engagment but I think they have gotten use to it now

We will be 24 when we get married next year. We’ve been dating since we were 16 years old. My Fiance asked my parents before he proposed to seek their blessing and they obliged. My mom was estatic…bought her dress a week after he proposed. But now, it’s tricky. My parents want the best for me yet they still treat me like a child to the point where I feel like I am in high school again. They recently mandated a curfew…now on worknights it’s 10PM. And I am not allowed to sleep over his house, even if his parents are aware and insist that I stay over anyway. It’s creating tension between my fiance and my parents. The “solution” is I should see my fiance less, which is impossible because he is my favorite person in the world. I often find myself having to choose between being a good fiance or being a good daughter (which means staying home with the family). But I guess from my parents’ perspective, once we are married, they will not see me as much. And from the way my mother has been recently, they will not for sure.

I’m 20. My Fiance is 22. I’m a music composition and theory student in university, and he just got a really great sales job at Sears in the appliances department. We got engaged in Feb, getting married in August. He proposed on Lake Superior (yes, on the ICE) at sunset. Actually, nobody has gotten on our case about being “too young.” Nobody seemed surprised in the least. I braced myself for it, but it never came. I have refused to do any serious wedding planning until my finals are over (one more week…) so now I’m bracing myself for “creative differences” all around. Hopefully those never come either… but somehow I doubt it.
