I am 21 and my Fiance is 19 (but will be 20 when we get married).. We come from a big church so I get that we are too young occasionally, but not too often. His and my parents are fine with it, though I’m sure they wish we would wait a bit.

I’m 23, but don’t really consider myself a super young bride. Fi is 25. No one has questioned me and everyone (besides off-her-rocker FMIL) is thrilled.

We’ve been together 8 years now so it’s not a huge shock, honestly.

I got engaged on my 21st birthday and will be 22 when I am married. My fiance will be 27 though so I dont know if that changes things. People always tell me Im too young, but Im finishing college and being an adult, so it dosent matter what they say lol

I was 20 when we got married, and will finally be 21 in July.. I don’t think age matters as long as you are happy and you are ready to work and talk through any difficulties you might face.  Our families couldn’t have been happier for us either, it’s just right.

I am 21 and will be getting married in September. I don’t have many people telling me that I am too young. I have my bachelors degree and am finished with university. We have been together for 4 years by the time of the wedding.

@littlelucygoose:  I’m 20 also!

I got engaged at 19 and will be 21 when we get married. Fiance just turned 23. We’ve been together more than 3 years. Actually only one person in real life has told us we’re too young, and it’s someone that we hardly know. Nobody that knows us has had anything but congratulations and well-wishes. I’m excited to be a young bride- I’m glad I found the person I’m going to spend my life with so early 🙂

Im 23 and we are getting married 10-11-12. We have been together for 7 years as of last November. We live together & have a daughter who will be 5mo on the 2nd of Febuary! I do not think we are too young to get married. We have been together for a very long time so the only thing people say to us is “its about time” lol

If I hadnt been with John for so long I would wait for 2 years before considering marrying someone. it takes at least a year to truly know someone. You are the only one who truly knows if your ready for marriage or not, no one can tell you either way. My friend got married after being with her bf for only a year & they are already divorced but Ive got another friend who has been with her now husband almost as long as John & I have been together, they got married a year ago & are still happily married.

I dont really think age factors in as much as how long you’ve actually been with the person & how close the two of you truly are. John and I are best friends, we spend every day hanging out together. =)

I’m 22(will be a month shy of 23 for the wedding) and Mr. Boa is 23. My parents got married 20/22 and have been married for 25 wonderful years. They are completely supportive of our relationshipour impending nuptials and.The reaction of our friends and family was more along the line of “Finally ” and “It was about time” since we have been together almost 5 years and have been living together for 1.

We have only heard the “You’re sooo young” reaction from strangers or casual acquaintances who probably think I care about their unsolicited opinion. I just ignore them, though Mr. Boa gets really pissed off.

I am 21 and will be 22 by the time Fiance and get married. I don’t really get a “you’re too young” response. I guess it has a lot to do with being finished with school and our maturity levels. Fiance and I have been together for six years and have only grown closer and more mature together and I think everyone has seen this. Both of our parents think we are doing the right thing and are extremely happy for us. Like PPs have said, this is what really means the most to us in the end anyway.

Ill be 22 and my Fiance will be 25. We are both really young and I know as soon as I break the news to the rest of my family there will be some oposition (not just because I’m “young” but also because we come from very different backgrounds), but my parents and his parents are very supportive and I’m very thankful for that :).

I am 23 and no one has said a word to me about age. Well jokingly maybe but they were close friends and I know they approve. I think it is different for everyone and as long as you act like and adult (and are legally an adult) no one should give any grief about it!

 

Congratulations to all of you! 🙂
