  • Wedding: May 2012

I’m 20, will be 21 in Novemeber, and Fiance is 21, will be 22 in Decemeber. We actually haven’t gotten any of the “your so young” atpyical nosiness at all. If anything, I think our parents were both waiting on Fiance to propose to me and get married! We really are best friends, and have been together for 5 years (yes, high school sweethearts). I’ve already graduated my two years of college, and he’s 3 years deep of a 6 year graduate program.

I wanted to get married when we were 19/20, but Fiance didn’t/wasn’t ready. I’m so glad I waited for him to grow up a bit (I’ve been out of my parents house since I was 17.)

We both wanted to get married younger – once he graduates and has a good job, we’ll start on the kids, which we both love.

 

We couldn’t be happier about our choice.

I’m 24, and will be getting married in 2 weeks. I think if you’re ready your ready. A big thing for me, and I know it was important for my family to, was for us to somewhat establish ourselves before we got married. And we definitely have since we have our own place, and jobs, and are somewhat financially stable (as much as you can be at this age, I suppose.) I personally feel like for me I just needed to know I could handle myself as a grown adult before I got married, since my parents aren’t going to be helping out with things like they did while I was in college.

I think people in the work world have been the ones to comment that I’m on the younger side. This is old compaired to prior generations. lol. But I suppose more people are getting married in their late 20’s early 30’s now. To each their own I say. If you can feisably do it, your in love, and this is the person that you have no doubt in your mind you want to spend the rest of your life with than I don’t see the point in waiting till your older. My Fiance and I are practicially like a married couple already. 🙂

  • Wedding: July 2013

My Fiance and I started dating when I was 19 and he was 28.  We got engaged when I was 21 and he was 31, and on our wedding day I will be 23 and he will be 33.

We have gotten a lot of strange reactions over the past 3 years in regards to our age difference.  Usually they go away pretty quickly after people get to know us as a couple.  We compliment each other perfectly and are just about on the same level maturity wise.  

When people try to tell me how I should be with someone who’s closer to my age and I shouldn’t be settling down so early, I tell them to mind their own business.  I know what I want and I really don’t care what anyone else thinks.  My close friends and family are happy for me and that’s all that matters.

I was 22 and he was 23. We had already been together for 5 years and lived together for 3. We both had steady income and I had just graduated with my degree. For us, it was definately the right time. We are both mature for our age and fully understand what marriage means. And I couldn’t be happier to call him my husband already!

I am 20 and my SO is 25, we plan to be engaged by the end of the year and are planning a wedding in October of 2013.

I have quite a bit of the vague planning done, but obviously so far out I can’t do anything concrete, but I’m getting so much flack about wanting to get married so young (I’ll be 23 by then, come on!) Anyone else get this reaction?

Im 22, my fiance is 25. We got engaged shortly before my college graduation. It felt like the perfect timing. I knew he was the ONE and he knew the same for me. Its been a rocky engagement due to outlying factors, but when its just HE and I, its pure bliss. We cant wait for the wedding day to arrive, so that the planning part is over! Its driving us both nuts. I cant wait for normalcy to set in and the focus to shift away from us. Too much attention makes me mentally and emotionally frail.

@AlbanianBride27: Was it hard trying to plan while going to school? I’m hoping to get back to college soon and I don’t want to have to push back my wedding to stay in school.

@MissComicBook: I get it a lot from people who dont know me very well but those who do are not surprised in the least. I think that unless someone says something mean spirited, its just them talking out of their own inner fears about rushing into marriage. For some people 22 is too young so its hard for them to comprehend when other 22 year old get married.

 

Personally I feel like getting married at this age is great for me because I am becoming more of who I am meant to be alongside my fiance. We are constantly encouraging each other to grow and accomplish our goals.

@MissComicBook:  It gets stressful at times, but what I did was made a big list and divided it into time frames. Like I had to order flowers a certain amount of time before the wedding day etc.

 

You just got to stay organized! That was my big thing. Once I got organized, things fell into place. Dont be afraid to ask for help!

@AlbanianBride27: I had one of my best friends, who I was going to ask to be my bridesmaid, and if I wan’t so close to my sister she would have been my Maid/Matron of Honor, tell me I should leave my SO, sleep around, and then come back and think about marriage in like five years!

@Miss Marbles: Fellow young bride? lol.

I feel kinda like an imposter because I’m not a “bride” yet, but I know it’s coming, hopoefully sooner than later!

Ugh the things people say! Ive been going through a lot these past few days because of some severe comments a “friend” made. She is no longer on my guest list. It sucks that people act stupid, I am trying to learn to keep my head up regardless. I used to have such thick skin, but I have become a softy in the past year, probably from all the lovin’ lol

@AlbanianBride27: Haha, I know how you feel. Two years ago that would have rolled off of my back, but it hurt me so bad to hear her say that.
