I will be 24 when we get married and Fiance will be 27. Our family & friends have been 100% supportive and we haven’t had anyone question our decision to get married.

I’m 24, Fiance is 36. I get as many comments about my age as I do about our age difference. It’s best just to let it go in one eat and out the other. I just commented on a post here today referring negatively to someone’s age. It goes with the territory. As long as you’re happy- that’s all that matters ;o] Anywho, currently Fiance and I are long distance a few days a week, and shhhhhhhhh, we’re considering just eloping! Hello all my early/mid twenty-somethings!!!

I’ll be 25 when we get married (24 now), Fi will be 27. Wow. That’s old. haha We’ve been dating since I was 19, and when I told my dad he had proposed, by dad told me he knew it had to be soon. Both families are super supportive. They always have been. We’ve been considered part of the other’s family (family outings and trips and the like) for probably the past five years. Everyone knew we’d get married pretty early on.

But, when I was teenager I was engaged to my boyfriend of four years, and no one supported that. And they were right. It was bad news bears. I met my husband to be five days after breaking up with him.

I always wanted to be married by 23… but hey, life happens, and we’re having the wedding of our dreams.

I’m 23, will be 24 when we get married, Fiance will be 24. We have wanted to get married for years, but we are waiting for him to get a full time job (He is finishing up his masters).

I will be 24 at the wedding, Fiance is 30. We’re also both “old souls”. I think it’s a little strange for people to judge couples getting married in their early 20’s (or where one person is in their early 20’s)… it’s sooooooooo common. My mom was 23, dad was 24 (married 35 years) and my dad’s parents were 16 & 18 (married over 50 years). Even now, half of my graduating class is married. Especially considering we’re at war and a lot of military people get married young.

My parents are completely supportive and I haven’t heard one negative word from anyone about my age or our age difference. He does have an ex girlfriend who’s 32 (making her 8 years older than me) who thinks it’s “disgusting” that I’m “like… five.” (twenty three, five… what’s the difference right?) and he’s “creepy”. I’m sure she’s so very concerned for my well-being.

Anyone who loves you won’t care how old you are. They’ll care that you have a happy and successful marriage. Anyone who comments about it, as my fiance would say “piss on ’em”

I’ll be 21 and Fiance will be 23. We’ve dated for 2 1/2 years now, and been through a lot together. I’ve only had one person tell us we should wait, but it was only a coworker who really doesn’t know us at all. We both support ourselves anyway and since I live in a different city now it will be nice to be together all the time 🙂 Both our families are extremely supportive.

I’ll be 23 and Fiance will be 25 on our wedding day. We will have been together 8 years when we marry. I think it’s appropriate for us. We know each other very well and are very, very excited about the wedding. We both waited until we were done school, careers are underway and we’re ready to start our adult life together.

My family is very supportive, his is starting to come around but initially weren’t. They’ve never commented on my age though, they just don’t care for me. We’re marrying a bit on the young side, but it’s nothing anyone has raised an eyebrow at.

I was 18 when we got married and he was 25. Age really doesn’t have any significant bearing on whether your marriage is set up for success or not- rather the maturity and dedication of the both of you.

Love this! I’m constantly getting the “oh wow you guys are so young!” reaction. I’ll be 23 when we get married in the church and have the reception. My Fiance is 25 and a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps serving in Japan right now, so we’re thinking of getting married legally next time he comes home. So technically I’ll be 21 when we get married which is probably going to be in October!!

I’m 21 and my fiance is 26, I’m so ready to marry him regardless of what a few people have already hinted at….that I’m too young. I’ve always wanted to get married young and be able to enjoy a few years of marriage and ensure financial stability before rushing into kids….I think our timing is perfect and I couldn’t be happier! I’m willing to take advice from whoever has it to offer but telling me I’m too young is a sure way to void off any further “advice” that person has to offer!

My fiance and I are 23 and 24 respectively, and will be the same age when we get married. It’s funny, I thought I’d meet more opposition from our families due to our age. But we’ve been together for 7 years, fiance waited until he graduated from college to propose, I had just finished my Master’s, and he got a good job lined up before he graduated, so by the time he proposed both our families were ready and excited! We love that we’ve been able to grow up together, and that we’ll get to start a new life together, and our parents love it too!

I am 23, got engaged at 22 and will be 23 (a little over a month shy of being 24) when we marry. Fiance is 26 and will be 27 when the big day arrives. I think we’ve got perfect timing. We’ve been together for over 3 years and I’ve known since the very begining that we are meant to be.

Darling Husband and I are both 22 and we’ve been married for 3 months. We were together just over 5 years when we got married and we both graduated college.  Our families were actually really supportive (my mom called me a “teenage whore” at 17 for having sex–DH has been my one and only– so, I suppose they were just happy we weren’t being “sinful” anymore…).

Maybe its a regional thing, but A LOT of my high school classmates are getting married.  2 of my bridesmaids were in 3 weddings each this summer and another was in 2 (all for brides who graduated high school in ’07).

For us, it was just the right “time” and it made sense.  We had both graduated college and were ready to move from our hometown.  We didn’t want to date for a few more years since we started dating at 16. If we didn’t get married, we probably would have ended up moving in together, so it just felt like the right time.

@Mrs.Sunflower: I am 22, and he is 23. We got engaged just before my 21st birthday. My parents still think I’m a baby, and that I should wait longer, and they definitley didn’t support tihs at first… but 6 weeks out, and they are finally coming around. So it does get better, just keep your head up.
