    I’m 21 and will be 22 when we get married. Fiance will be 24. He’s the first out of his friends, and I’m one of the last out of my friends. Both our families were thrilled when they found out he was going to propose.

    We have actually been together the longest (9 1/2 years) and will be the last to get married among our group of friends! 

    I posted another thread on this, but we actually have to attend 5 weddings this summer (including our own).

    In some groups of friends, yes (high school and uni friends) but not the first out of all of my friends. A few of my friends are older than me – I’m 24, they’re in their late 20s – so some of them were engaged/married before me. So far I’ve been to four of my friends’ weddings.

    Out of FI’s group of eight close friends, four are married but Fiance is the only currently engaged one. He’s a bit older though (30).

    We were sort of first, 2 of our group of friends are engaged and got engaged before us, but we didn’t meet them until after we were engaged already. We’re 21 and 22, they’re 23 and 26. I don’t know which of us will get married first.

    We were the first in social group to be engaged, with another couple following a few weeks later. Family wise we fall in the “young ones” range, so def not the first!

    I was one of the first to get engaged but certainly not to get married. Many have eloped or just done it super quick.

    Many of my friends have had babies first and i dont think they are considering marriage

    • Wedding: September 2013 - Franklin Plaza

    In college I had a close group of friends:  myself and 3 other girls.  All of us ended up in serious, long-term relationships with guys all from the same fraternity house.  All but one of us are now engaged (and we are expecting the final girl to be engaged shortly- her bf has been asking about rings).  We got engaged in the reverse order of how long we have been dating.  My fiance and I were dating for the shortest amount of time ( 4 1/2 years) when we got engaged and my not-yet-engaged friend and her bf have been dating for just under 6 years.  We are also all getting married in the order we were engaged, so I will be getting married first.

    I definitely won’t be the first! I will only be 22 when we get married, but most of my friends did not go to college or university and married before 20. My fiance will be 23, and some of his friends married at about 20 as well. We waited so that I could graduate and work for almost 2 years 🙂

    Definiteiy NOT the first to get engaged (no ring yet!) and thus will not be the first to get married. Also our date is 2015 so by then, many friends will be married for sure.

    I will be 27 when we get married and my fiancé, 28. Some of his friends are married and some are not…most in long term relationships at least. I am one of the last to get married in my friendship groups but first in one, if that makes sense!

    I’m 28, FH is 32…. All of his friends are in their mid to late 30’s and all of my friends are in their early 30’s so we’re definitely not the first anything. He has friends who just celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary, haha.
