I agree. I never reply on the 20 something boards, even though thats closest to my age. Fiance is 20, but I’m 19. However, I do feel like I’m in the mindset of about a 25 year old. lol. Hmmm…. lets see i live in Missouri. Fiance and I have been together for 3 years in 9 days. EEK. He proposed after only 2 months of dating, so yes i was engaged at 17. I’m a nanny for 3 kids. I want to live in all over the world. And I’m a fashion snob. lol. I HATE watching movies more than once. But I could watch P.S. I Love You, I Love You Man, and Talladega Nights everyday of my life. My favorite shows are HIMYM, Glee, Reba, and Castle.

One thing I’ve never said on here, out of fear of ppl looking down on me, Fiance and I dropped out of HS after I got pregnant (after we got engaged, we didnt get engaged do to pregnancy), but i ended up losing the baby. It was also to help my newly single, and struggling mom. So, right now I’m studying to get my GED. and Fiance just got his. But thats pretty important to who I am, it has shaped who I am today.

My man and I are not officially engaged yet, but we are in the “pre-engagement” planning stage where we know we will get married, it’s just a matter of when. SO and I are 19, both students. We are preparing for a move to the east coast, the first time for both of us, to go to college so I know we will do a lot more growing up being so away from our families.

Hello fellow Bees! First of all, I just wanted to say that have thoroughly enjoyed reading all about each of you and truly applaud you for being such strong-willed, kind, and mature people. I don’t exactly fit the criteria for this thread as I am currently 21, but I thought I would introduce myself regardless.

Both Fiance and I are 21. In fact, Fiance is exactly two weeks older than I am (his birthday is October 5th and mine is the 19th). We met and began dating during our freshman year of high school… Yes, that’s right, we’re the cliche high school sweethearts, and we have just recently celebrated our 6th (dating) anniversary in March.

Both of us have endured different struggles in our lives, and because of this we have always been very mature and unable to fully relate to our peers. Fiance and I knew way back in high school that we wanted to spend our lives together, and even spoke with our parents during our junior year of high school about our desire to get engaged.

During our senior year of high school, we decided we did not want to be apart during college, so I told Fiance to pick the school of his choice as my parents could not afford to send me to an expensive college, especially after we lost our home to foreclosure just a few months before Fiance and I graduated. He chose Purdue University where he currently studies Electrical Engineering, and I enrolled in courses at the local community college. We bought our own house, and moved from NJ to IN during the summer after graduation. It has been a hard, yet fulfilling journey, and one I am glad to say I have experienced, for it has given me a sense of self, a purpose, the experience to learn how to manage my life, and most importantly it has strengthened my relationship with Fiance.

Fiance proposed in February of 2009, and after having to cancel our wedding plans twice due to lack of finances, we are finally setting everything in motion to get married in September of this year (2011)! We are very excited and can’t wait to be husband and wife!

As for further details, Fiance will be graduating from Purdue in May of 2012, and I am working hard to obtain two different degrees (Psychology and Early Childhood Education) from two different online degree programs. I am, however, working to transfer my credits to Purdue University to finish my schooling there. We also work to support each other(FI part-time and full-time for me), and spend a lot of time with our dog, Maggie. We enjoy listening to classic rock and going camping. Fiance is very focused on school and enjoys doing things that pertain to Electrical Engineering, while I enjoy spending time with family and the children I babysit for, as well as drawing, painting, writing, watching sports (my Philly teams), gardening, cooking and decorating. I feel our future is bright, as is all of yours, and look forward to having a family of my own very soon!

Best wishes to each of you in the wedding planning and marriage process!

Awww, I think I’m the oldest in this thread :/. I am 22 and my Fiance is 26. We got engaged a few months after we started dating. If all of our immigration paperwork *stays* on track, we should get married early fall >.<

FH and I got informally engaged on my 17th birthday (he was 16), and officially engaged when we were both 18 (on Valentine’s Day). Currently, we’re both 20 (I turn 21 at the end of this month). We are soooo ready to get married (ugh!), but we’re waiting until we graduate University, so we’ll both be 22. : p

Hi! I’m 19 and my husband is 21 and we’ve been together for 4 years as of today! We’ve been married for almost a year and we got engaged in High School. We started dating after we met during our school musical “West Side Story” when I was a freshman and he was a junior…I was a costume girl and he was a Jet! We had a long distance relationship for 2 years when he went to a university 6 hours away, but it made us even stronger! He’s studying to get his master’s dergree in civil (structural) engineering and he’s half way done! He’s the most intelligent person I know and I’m constantly in awe of him!

Hmmm…I love reading and being a housewife! I love to cook and clean (surprisingly) and I love dresses with poofy skirts:D I also love waking up to stormy weather. My DH and I have been ttc for 6 months and I’m struggling emotionally on and off with it.

It’s so great to get to know some Bee’s that I can relate to!

P.S. Glee is awesome! Darren Criss is really cute:)

Joey, this is a great idea!

I’m 19 (turning 20 in less than a month) and Fiance is 24 this year. We’ve been together for almost 10 months and engaged for 1 and a half. haha. We fell in love online and in one night and dating after two weeks. A month after we started talking he moved over to WA to be with me and we recently just moved to NSW together.

We’ve gone to hell and back since we met; we’ve gone through his depression and anxiety, moving across the country and just last night I recieved one of those phone calls you dread getting about my grandma. We’re both stubborn and old fashioned. We argue and yell sometimes but we’re always stronger afterwards and we never go to bed angry. πŸ˜›

I’m studying to be a primary school teacher but taking a year off atm. Fiance is looking into studying to be a school counsellor and we’re both looking for jobs atm. I love purple and reeces peanut butter cups (even at $2.90!) πŸ˜›
