Soooo.. you’re 19?

ETA, there are a few “youngin’s” around, check out the 20’s board. But I would be surprised if you got a whole lot of the support you’re looking for here...

I was 22 when we got engaged and I didn’t any problems. People are douches no matter what…if you were 25 people would have comments. If you were 30 they’d have comments. 

Lol @ “and right before they got married, he redid the kitchen”. haha. that’s the surefire way into my heart 😉

I am 22 and will be when we get married, so I consider myself a “youngin”. It’s annoying, but I think I exude an air of “don’t talk to me” because I don’t really get hassled a whole lot. People tend to leave me alone and not ask me questions like that.

@Mrs. Furry: “Suppose if my parents bought us a house we could though.”

True that!

I feel ya girl. I was getting comments all the time when I first got engaged and I was 21. So I don’t worry about it too much. I just showed them that I’m a strong person and they dropped it. People will always find something to say about something.

@Mrs. Furry: Ah. Well, really you just need to be confident in your decisions, and people will see that. You know what they say, opinions are like bum-holes, everyone has one 🙂

Everyone has their own opinions of the “Average” age to get married, and the age that they consider to be “young”. Theres not much that can be done to change peoples opinions, except to just ignore any remarks about your age.

I’m 24 and will be 25 when we get married.  I got braces a month before my fiancee proposed.  I’ve always gotten carded and since the braces its gotten ridiculous.

Enough background, I don’t know how many people have said, “You’re engaged, how old are you?”  What does it matter how old I am my fiancee and I are ready!

Sorry to impose on your thread, but I totally feel for you.  It drives me nuts and I really don’t feel like I’m getting married that young.

I don’t think you are too young. I expected to get crap from people but I really didn’t. I will have to say most people think I am older than I am, I’ve been through a lot in my 21 years (mom passed away 9 yrs ago, sister last year, no dad in the picture) I would say those things made me really grow up fast. I was 20 when we just recently got married, I technically couldn’t even drink! lol But as long as it is what you want, you are happy, go for it Just ignore people. They are probably just jealous they didn’t get to marry as young as you. I work as a preschool teacher and most of the girls i work with recently got married and two are having kids already and they are our age. You would never know how young they are. Be confident in your decisions. 🙂

I got engaged at 22 and I’m the oldest out of my sister and two female cousins. I don’t ever get comments, people seem to get married really young in my area, so that definitely helps. I did have one guy ask me if we were getting married because I was pregnant :P.
