I will be 25 by the time we get married and my Fiance will be 27 a week afer the wedding. i dont think you can put an age limit on love so dont listen to what other people say. as long as you know yor getting married for the right reason thats all that matters!

I will still be 21 in a week, and FH will be turning 25 about a month after the wedding. His parents are fine and mine only needed a little convincing. I will have my BA in the spring and the wedding is not changing my plans of going right on for my MA, which seems to be the most prominent concern among people outside my immediate family, which seems ridiculous as they should know me, and know that I am rather focused academically. In all, those that fussed at all about my age are those that didn’t really know me all that well.

Planning is going pretty well, printing out the last of table things today, doing laundry to pack for the honeymoon, and then making the favors on Wednesday and Thursday when the wedding party flys/drives in. I’m pretty excited for the week leading up- some of my closest friends growing up are staying in a house with my family that we rented out. And the wedding too, of course.

We were 20/21 when we got married. Our immediate families were very supportive, it was just the extended family that had issues and we didn’t take any notice of that. As I have said many times before, I dont think there is a perfect age bracket for marriage even though many people will try to tell you so 🙂

I am 22 and Fiance is 27, and were getting married in 41 days!!woohoo!! Weve mostly had huge support,more so when we actually started planning the wedding though. I am very independant and have lived on my own since I was 17,and although Im close with my family,I like to keep my life very private,so a lot of my family hadnt seen Fiance and I “together” in our own environment and acting ourselves. So my mum told me she would like us to have a long engagement.

The turning point came when both of our families went out for Fiance birthday a few months ago, and they saw us interacting and just being ourselves. My mum said it was the happiest she had seen me in years (I had previously been in an abusive relationship) and since then shes been full steam ahead for us as a couple!

Now I just cant get her to stop helping us out,shes oragnising so many suprises for us,decorating the room on the day, organised the cake, and contributing financially.

Bless

When I met Darling Husband I was only 18, we have been together 3 years and on our wedding day I was 21. Darling Husband is 5 years older than me too. We are both mature and had a son together last year. Age is just a number, it doesn’t indicate wisedom or maturity. My family was very supportive of us the whole time we have been together.

I am 23 and will be 24 when we get married. Fiance is 27 and will be 28 when we get married. We have been together for 6 years (7 when we get married!), live together, have two cats together, have travelled the world together and have grown up together… family was not surprised, I think they thought it was long over due!

Most of the people who have made comments have been those at work. Even when I explain we would have been together for 7 years by the time we get married they still say ‘your too young to be that committed!’… umm we have been living together for 5 years, I dont think marriage will be some big, crazy experience that we are too young for. We will be fine.

@armywife1029: and @organizedbride11:Another November bride! It’s so quickly approaching 🙂

I’m 21 but will be 22 when we get married; Fiance will turn 24 the weekend after the wedding! We both have full time careers and we own a house. We haven’t heard a single negative word about our ages so that has been nice! Pretty much everything is planned and just waiting to send out invites and last minute DIY things.

Me and my Fiance are both 21 and will be married this weekend.  Our families have been supportive, but we’ve definitely had a hard time getting support from friends and coworkers.  I feel like i’ve been constantly defending myself and its worn me down a bit.  But now that the day is practically here I know I’ve made the right choice. I can’t imagine waiting any longer!  Also we’ve been together for 7years so why put off something we know is going to happen?  Just stick to your guns and don’t let other people’s opinions bring you down.  What makes you happy isn’t up to them.

I am 24 and Fiance will be 26 when we get married. I got engaged when I was 23 and my parents and his have always been supportive of our relationship. We are both also very mature, finished college and bought a house when I was 21 and Fiance was 23. We are old souls. As long as you know what your doing and it feels right, it doesnt matter what other people say.
