I got married when I was 21… No one IRL told me I was too young, thank goodness (although lots of ladies here did ;)) Congrats!

I married last year. (been married for 1.2 years) I was 23 when I got married and a lot of people told me that I was too young. People really get a surprise look when I say I’m married. I’m often asked if I have a boyfriend and I’m like no…. I have a husband! A lot of people have made comments and even tough the comments annoy me, I always think of my parents. They were so happy for me when I got married  and I need no more approval. I think people marry when they feel ready. It is a socially constructed thing, like if you hit 30 you’re to old… etc, etc. Don’t listen to other people, only you know when you are ready.

Congratulations!

I was 21 when I got married and I rarely was told I was too young. However, I’m 22 now and we’re about to TTC and I get told all the time (by “friends”) that I’m too young to have kids yet.

I am 21 and when we get married I will be 22. I absoultey think it depends on your maturity. I, too, am very mature for my age and if you never saw me, you would probably never know how young I am! If you are sure of your decision, then that is all that matters. I get a ton of crap for it too. In fact, I think a few family members won’t be at my wedding and that is one of the reasons.

I got engaged just after turning 21, and I’ll be 23 when I get married. Some people look at me like I have 3 heads when they find out, but I consider myself lucky to have found my partner so early in life!

@JennBug89:  I’m not TTC but whenever I say I’m married people tell me “oh… but you don’t want children yet right? so regardless of what you do, there is always someone who is not happy with it lol! good luck in your new journey!

I’m still going to be 21 (22 shortly thereafter) and Fiance is 23 (24 shortly thereafter). Our birthdays are 13 days apart. Lol. But we haven’t been told IRL that we’re too young by anyone, because we don’t act our age, and honestly people that don’t know us would NEVER guess our ages. Also, we have been together for almost 4 years, so we got more of a “finally!” reaction than an “are you serious?” reaction. Luckily.

I’m 22 but I will be 24 when we finally get married.  We haven’t gotten any comments, but that might be because we both work full time jobs  so Mabey they think we will be ok? Lol

@JennBug89:  Ugh, I can’t stand people so freely giving opinions on how old people should choose to have children. I have fertility disorders so we have considered trying sooner than we’d thought, but ultimately decided to wait a bit longer. I just thought it was pretty appalling that people were so judgmental of it. They have no idea how difficult the decision to TTC is no matter WHAT your age is. Good luck btw!!

I’ll be almost 22 and he’ll be just short of 29 when we get married. I never imagined being a young bride. We’ll have been together 4 years when we get married. We haven’t had much of a bad reaction because everyone saw it coming. One of my best friends’ brother told me I’ll be getting a divorce and I’m just another statistic. Steam starting rolling out of my ears but I just walked off. He’s never met us before and I don’t think he knew FI’s age, plus he can’t even stay in the same city for more than 6 months so he’s not much for settling down. I know we’re ready to be married. We basically already are but without the legal paperwork. It has really taught me that you can’t plan life. There’s no reason for me to wait to please the world just because of my age.

I’m 20..looks like I’m the youngest so far! No one has mentioned to my face that I’m too young but I’m pretty sure there were some raised eyebrows. Meh, I’ve got the rest of my life to “prove” us.
