Ugh, unfortunately I just experienced my first “young bride” bs a month before the wedding. Lol. It was on twitter and it was people I don’t know anymore (went to hs with) who decided to quote a whole bunch of divorce statistics (wrongly) and tell me “Well don’t be a statistic then!!” and then, when I responded that I think marriage is about being realistic and not all rainbows and sunshine, another negative as* said, and I quote, “No, It just can’t happen, just, no! We’re different. Haha” And then I deleted and blocked them. So stupid and immature. They forget that not all of us mature at the rate of a snail. I mean, these are 22 year old guys that want to be TEACHERS. Jeez.

FH & I will be 22 when we tie the knot. We got engaged at 18 (officially), but we’d been planning a future together since we were 17.

We used to get a lot of “but you’re so young!” comments when we first got engaged, but I haven’t gotten any recently.

We’ll have been together for exactly 6 years when we get married. That’s longer than a lot of the relationships older brides have!

I got married two weeks before my 21st birthday and my husband had only been 20 for about a month at the time. A few people told us that we were too young but you just have to let it roll off. If you read nothing else, read the following sentence– YOU WILL NOT CONVINCE THOSE WHO SAY YOU ARE TOO YOUNG THAT YOU ARE NOT. So do not try and you’ll save yourself a lot of grief and frustration. It doesn’t matter if others think you are old enough or mature enough. All that matters is that you love each other and are in it for th long haul. I argued with so many people trying to prove the point that we were mature enough or old enough and it just gets tiring, don’t waste your time honey (:

@taylor.ashleys:  Awesome advice, and so true! Especially: YOU WILL NOT CONVINCE THOSE WHO SAY YOU ARE TOO YOUNG THAT YOU ARE NOT. So true. People only believe what they want to. 🙂 No need to waste our time or breath on the naysayers.

Getting Married at twenty two (this August) and engaged at the age of 20.  It is all up you.  I do not believe there is a thing such as “right age” for everyone.  The right age varies from person to person. When I got engaged, people looked at me like I was to young, but now eveyone accepts it.  My soon husband to me makes me so happy and brings out the best in me.  I am a better peson with him by my side, because we inspire each other.  We have the same career goals and same values.  We are teaching old couples how to love and be good to one another, lol.. Seriously though.. So take everything into consideration, but not everyone’s opinion, take everything YOU know into consideration, and if this is the guy then there is no such thing as too young.

I’m 19, and I turn 20 in June. My man is 21. We have been dating since I graduated High school 2 years ago, and we went to the same high school and had mutual friends!

We are “unofficially engaged” (I’m just kinda waiting for the question) We are planning on getting married in the fall. It’s been kinda hard to wait because we are both religious and want to marry virgin.

Where I live it isn’t uncommon to marry young and many of my friends have been getting married, so we shouldn’t get many negative comments. I am just nervous how his family will react!

Up to you when to get married.

 

No one can decide how ready you are apart from yourself. So forget outside opinions and think of yourself. I know I was mature enough to get married by age 21 (thats when I moved in with my OH), but I just needed to get all of university out the way because it was all very time consuming and I didnt want to ‘neglect’ my hubby.

Now its out the way and we’re planning and it makes no difference whether we’s have done it 3 years ago or now. either way we’ve only gotten stronger xxx
