I don’t think 25 is that young! If you went to a traditional college, you’ve been “on your own” for at least 3 years. That makes no sense to me! I hope to be married just before my 26th birthday if all goes according to plan. My mom was 23. To me, if you’re done with school and/or have a steady job you’re not too young!

@love108:   I agree but I also feel young for a big city too (married at 24, living in NYC).

lol that’s funny! I work at a hospital, and whenever a patient sees my ering they say “oh you’re engaged?” which is immediately followed by “how old are you,  you look so young?” When I tell them I’m 21 they usually ask if my marriage is arranged. haha.

Isn’t 24 the average age for a woman’s first marriage? And I’m sure the average for men is 26, so . . . You guys aren’t marrying young, you’re marrying average, she didn’t know what she was talking about! And many happy returns to you!!

I thought the average now was about 26-27, but you’re right, it does depend on the area. Most of my friends have gotten married at age 23-25. Some haven’t married yet at all, one was 20. But I am from suburbia and went to college in a small town. A lot of those marriages were college sweethearts.

I get that ALL THE TIME. I will be 21 when I get married, and I am currently 19. I will be graduating this year, and my Fiance will be graduating next year, so we will both be done school before getting married. We have currently lived on the top floor of my parents house the last 3 years , and we plan on moving out shortly after getting married. We also have a two year old son, but still we always get these funny/rude comments. At first I took a lot of offence to it, but now I just learned how to shrug it off. We both love each other to peices, and thats all that matters!

@Jade33:  The average age for the US for first marriages (as of 2009) is 28.5 for men and 26.5 for women.  The coworker still needs a filter though.  Even if she thinks every marriage where the bride and groom are younger than average is doomed to fail (which is silly), her remark was still rude.

Well, if YOU are too young, then I need to watch out. 
I will be 22 when we get married, and my fi will have JUST turned 21. We’ve been together for over 3.5 years, and will have been together for 5 when the wedding comes around.

I never get that from friends/family. But at work one of my co-workers (she used to be my boss) would make comments like: I made sure my daughter doesn’t get married young (shes a yr younger than me) I want her to have fun and live life O_o

I always hated when people would say comments like, “oh wow, you’re young! Robbing the cradle huh?” I am 25, going on 26, Hubby is 23 going on 24. Yes he is younger, but only by a year and a couple of months. It does get annoying but i honestly dont think 25 is young to get married. I’ve been with my bf for almost 9 years… It was about time we tied the knot i must say.
