    I was the first one to get engaged and I’ll either be the first or second one to get married.

    Of our close friends, we’re the first to get engaged, and will be the first to get married. We’re all quite young (mid 20’s), adn we’ve been together for over 7 years, whereas most of our friends are either single, or else have been in and out of relationships.

    Of acquaintances (eg people we never see but have on Facebook lol) we were the first to get engaged, but won’t be the first to get married.

    We will both be 25 on our wedding day (24 at time of engagement) and were the first in both of our friend groups to get enaged and will be the first married. Only one of his friends is even dating anyone, 3 of mine are, with one almost certainly headed in the marriage-y direction at some point. 

    First of our age group in our families too, ish. (His family is huge so its hard to really group, but no one extremely close has married in awhile.)

    Both Fiance and I were 20yo when he proposed, we both will be 22yo when we get married late this year. Im the first of my close friends to get engaged and to be married (bar any shotgun weddings lol) but a friend (now 22yo) got married to get a visa so she can live with her now husband in america, they were dating for years and didnt want to be apart any longer, it lasted 2 and a bit years and are now broken up and back in different countries 🙁 so im not sure to count that.

    My family, well my sisters are 9 and 7 years older than me so obviously engaged and married before me!!!

    FIs sister (30yo) has been engaged coming on 10 years so she wins with that lol but I dont see a wedding rushing in before ours.

    Out of FIs friends, one got married a few months ago, he and his wife are both 21yo

    • Wedding: February 2013

    We were both 22 when we got engaged and had been together for 2 years. Married at 23 (just last month actually). I’m the first of my group to get engaged and married.

    I have another friend who will be getting married later this year.

    We only gave 2 months notice for our wedding and it was really funny because everyone was assuming I was secretly pregnant! It just so happened that me and New Husband weren’t planning on having a wedding, we just wanted to sign the papers and move in together. But the family wanted a wedding celebration…

    First to get engaged, and i’m assuming i’ll be the first to get married (FSIL is the only other one in our circle to get engaged, but she’s planning on a 4ish year engagement).

    Fiance proposed 2 days after my 20th birthday. I’ll be 21 (turning 22) when we tie the knot, he’ll be 24 going on 25. We’re getting married on our 6 year anniversary 😀

    I wouldn’t be too surprised if 1-3 of my friends also got engaged over the next year or so though.

    We were the first of our friends to get engaged, and at present we’ll be the first to get married (only one other couple is engaged, and they’re aiming for 2015), but who knows what the future holds!


    We’ll both be 26 when we get married, I’ll be a month off 27, he’ll be two months off.

    Uh one of my good friends was married right out of high school.  She was already divorced by the time I married at 27 lol.  My other BFF has never been engaged or married.

    Yeah, but out of my BFFs three of the four of us all already had met our FH’s by the time I got engaged. We got married in 2011, my other friend in 2012 (although they had been together for 9 years so definitely the longest), and my third is getting married this fall in 2013! The fourth is still in grad school getting her phd and has never really dated. I don’t think marriage is really on her radar.

    I was just shy of 25 when we got married, DH was 29.

    We are a scattered group. I will be the third engaged, third married of my friends, and first for both in my family. I am 28. My fiance is one of the last of his group to marry- he is 30. A good friend got engaged recently, but no wedding till mid 2014.My brother has plans for engagement this summer, and my fiance’s sister is definitely in the arena. No one else is in a serious relationship that I know. It will be  a few years before another wedding bug (my bank account is grateful).

    We were engaged first, but we had an 18 month engagement, and in that time, a cousin got engaged & married (close to our timing), and a friend got engaged and married (all in like 4 months). We’ve had a couple other friends get married, but we were the first ones to get engaged.
