I’m 22, about to graduate with a BA in secondary education, my specialization is Speech/Theatre with an emphasis in costume design and special effects makeup (haha, it’s a mouthful). My Fiance is in the Air Force, but has an associates in Law Enforcement. Our engagement will be 17 months long (engaged June 09, wedding Oct 10) and no, we do not live together. He lives 800 miles away.

Any reason for the questions? Or just curious?

Me: 22

Degree: BS in Biochemistry. Graduating in 2011, going to attend pharmacy or grad school.

Him: 22

Degree: BA in Psychology. Graduating in 2011. Currently he is trying out to play professional baseball.

Our engagement will probably be 2 years, I would like to get married when I am about 24.

We don’t technically live together (he still has a room at his parents), however he spends every night here, showers and eats here, etc. I live with my parents at the moment, although I did live on my own for 2.5 years. However I will be moving out when I graduate and we most likely will rent an apartment together ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 25, in grad school getting an MA in Mass Comm. I got a BA in journalism and while you definitely should follow your dreams, let me warn you that getting a magazine job is TOUGH right now. Magazines are kind of headed down the tubes (sigh -that sucks). If you want to do journalism I recommend you get really current with social media and have some knowledge in web content writing ๐Ÿ™‚ Follow your dreams!!

I’m 21, majoring in accounting, hope to eventually go back into engineering–civil (was in the Materials Science Engineering).  My dream job used to be a physician or research scientist but that kind of fell apart.  I’ll be happy to have a family and stay at home even if I don’t end up in engineering.  Fiance is 21 and in computer engineering.  We will have been engaged for 1.5 years by the time we marry. We live together as “roommates” (separate bedrooms) for purely financial reasons, we’re supporting ourselves with everything.  We’re paying for our wedding ourselves so it’ll be very low budget and very small.  Oh and we’ll both be 22 when we get married, he’ll be close to 23.

Oh yeah, I’m waaaay behind in school.  It’ll have taken me 5 years to get a 2 year degree b/c I started in engineering, then sociology and women’s studies, then finally accounting at a community college.  Fiance will take a total of 5 years to get his BS in CompE so he gets a minor in philosophy.

Me: 23

Degree: I am finishing my second year of pharmacy school (so I’ve been in college/grad school 5 years after high school and have 2 more years to go).  The end is starting to be in sight!  After I graduate I intend to practice pharmacy and probably pursue a Master’s of Public Health degree.  

Him: 24

Degree: He has completed his associates in computer information systems and is finishing up his bachelor’s degree in the same field (it’s a “2 + 2” program, so he had to get the associates first).  

Engagement: 18 months total, about 2 more months to go

Living arrangements: Yes, for us living together was the right decision.

You may be “behind” if you didn’t go straight to college but really, it’s better late than never!  And I have people in my college classes much older than 23.  Go for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re both 20. I’ll graduate with a BS in Psychology, he will graduate with a BS in Biology. 

We’re both facing uphill battles, that’s for sure! We both really need to go to grad school – I plan (hopefully will be accepted) to work towards my PhD in clinical Psych. He is aiming for vet school but doubting he’ll get in the first time around, so his backups are nursing school or a physician’s assistant program. 

Our engagement is 2 1/2 years – because we want to graduate from undergrad first. It’s really scary having everything up in the air, but all I can really do is study, work hard, and formulate a reasonable backup plan.
