Girl I’m 25 and people say “It’s about time to me”. Although I think it’s because we dated for 5 years and not because of age. I think that’s probably what people mean when they say that to you!!

LOL!  Maybe she wasn’t talking about your age.  It could be cause you’ve been with your Fiance so long, and that could be what she meant by that?  You have been with your Fiance for a while right?

We got a little of that, too, but mainly because we’ve been together for so long.  We wanted to be done with school, and into the next phase of our life before we got married.  Weddings are exspensive, too, so it takes awhile to get in the right financial place.

I am 39 and getting married for the first time.  Do you know how many times I have heard this?  Out of all the kids I grew up with, I am the only one who has not been divorced, and some of those they are on their second or third divorces.  I personally think I was the smart one, I waited for Mister Right instead of Mister Right Now.

Ooh, I get that all the time and I’m 26!  I’m always like, what exactly does that mean?  I think it’s mainly because we were together for 3 1/2 years before we got engaged but still.

My fi will be 28 just before the wedding, and people say that all the time to us. When we were at a Christmas party a very close relative of his came up and said “I’m so happy for you guys! It’s about time! My husband and I were so worried he was gay!” I was so shocked I didn’t know what to say. Being gay is NEVER a bad thing, but just because he doesn’t bring a gf home for a long time he automatically isn’t interested in women? what? excuse me?

another great one, a lady at my work asked me this little nugget-“Are you sad you are going to have to have kids right away(I’m 21)?”

“what?”

“because your fi is so old. Are you sad you’re going to have to have kids right away?”

“Is he about to go into menopause or something? We don’t even know that we want kids.”

people are crazy. You are definitely not old!

I don’t think they are referring to your age but more that they are thinking you and your Fiance should have got married ages ago – either because you’ve been together a really long time, or because they simply adore you both together.

People are crazy.

@Miss Tattoo: Look at you posting in 20 something ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am going to hope that she meant that obviously the two of you were meant to be together forever and so it has seemed like a long time to her since the two of you are back together now.

I’m 25 and I get this alot too… But I think they mean because we dated for 7 years before he proposed. I started viewing it as them seeing us as such a good couple together that they couldn’t wait for us to make it “official”, if that makes sense. Regardless of what they actually meant, it makes ME feel better anyways. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t sweat it, 27 (or 28) is not old.

I think a lot of 20-somethings wish they had your problem ๐Ÿ™‚  Most of us are being told that we are too young to get married haha!
