@lucy_smith:  We didn’t really discuss it – more it was just a fact that we could either buy a house, renovate, then get married when we have saved. Or rent for a while – get no return on our investment and potentially get married sooner.

For us, buying was the right choice – we would rather have invested.

@lucy_smith:  I am 23 (turning 24 in july!) and SO is turning 30 in may :0

 

I think turning 30 is putting a pep in his step lol he has definitely been bringing it up alot more!

We have been together for almost 3 years (also in May). And hoping to move in together this year! Fingers crossed that SO gets the job he interviewed for yesterday, it is a much closer commute should we live together πŸ™‚

I am a young waiting bee as well…I am 23 and SO will be 31 in March. We have lived together for just under a year and just adopted a puppy together. There’s no proposal on the horizon (that I am aware of) but five months ago we went ring shopping. I feel like for women, any age is the right age to get married as long as you know what you want and that marriage is a serious, life-long commitment to another person and not just a fun party and a pretty gown. 

It’s been three weeks since your original post…any talking happen between you two? Updates? πŸ™‚

I’m not waiting but I guess would be considered young. I’m 20, Fiance is 22, we’re high school sweethearts. He graduated college last year and I will in May. We bought our first house last summer and are getting married in June! hopefully it will come soon for you waiting bees.

my plan/rule was to be engaged before I would buy a home with my SO. but we found a great deal that we couldn’t pass up and bought our home first. planning to be engaged within 2014! we will both be 24 in a few months and have been together for over 6 years. 

 

i really feel good about our decision and i think this is the perfect year for us to think about our future wedding… but I think you are totally reasonable wanting to be engaged before buying the home! it’s a great idea to talk it out and decide what you both had in mind!

23 and “waiting” (we’re waiting until the ring gets here, haha). Boyfriend’s 25 and has a stable job. We’ve also been living together for two years, planning on building a house within the next ten years or so (it’s way too expensive now, yay dense population).

I haven’t had anyone tell us we’re too young yet, but I have to admit I wonder myself sometimes – but then I remember how good we are together, how long we’ve been together, and how everyone always tells us we’re perfect for each other and any worries I have fly away (:

@lucy_smith:  Not at all. I’m 25 and married with a 4 month old son πŸ™‚ If it makes you both happy, go for it! I think as long as the two people getting married know that it’s not just about the big wedding day, then sure. Relationships need work, and I believe whatever makes you both happy is right for you.

@lucy_smith:  oh definitely. He was the one who brought it up and found the house. It is very common to be married here before 23 so no one has really thought twice about it. We have about five weddings to attend this summer of our high school classmates. I think it’s very important that the guy is totally on board. If he’s not the one bringing up marriage and saying let’s go pick a ring, then he’s likely not ready and I didn’t want to be in that situation so I left it up to him.

Hi! Totally in the same position. I’m 23, he’s 25, and we’re looking at buying a house in six months. He has great savings and we both have stable jobs. I’m as ready as I’ll ever be and am just anxious waiting! Keep us all updated!

I suppose I am young and waiting, ha! I am turning 23 and my SO is 23 already. He is working in a very stable career and I am finishing up grad school. We have been together for 4.5 years and we live together. 

 

Truthfully, I don’t think there is such a thing as “too young” if you are living stable lives and have a sound history together. Nothing will change in our lives once we get married, since we support ourselves, but I’m excited to start our forever together.
