  • Wedding: October 2018

I’m 19 and FH is 21, but we’ll be 21 and 23 on our wedding day (May/June 2014). We met through a mutual friend when I was 13, but it was a one-time deal. Then we met again (at Kroger, of all places) right after my 15th birthday. A month or so later, he started coming to my very tiny private school and we were formally introduced by my math teacher. We dated off and on in high school and got back together for real my 2nd semester of college. That was about a year and a half ago and he proposed a week ago Thursday. 

Glad to see I’m not the only one that’s under 21!

  • Wedding: July 2018 - the oak tree of peover

hi all! i’m 21 but agree with the OP in saying i don’t exactly feel like a 20-something – i haven’t graduated yet, don’t have a mortgage etc, although i don’t exactly feel young – i’ve been with my Fiance for 5 years and we’ve lived together for over a year. πŸ™‚ my Fiance is 21 also and currently working in his families business whilst i’m about to start my final year of university studying medical biochemistry. we were engaged a few weeks ago and are looking to get married summer 2014. πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: August 2013

Hi, this is my first post.

A little about me, i’m 20, from London and got engaged on my 20th Birthday in December, my fiance turned 20 last month, and we’ll both be 21 when we get married next August.

We’ve been together over 4 years, when we were 16 &15 and got together at our school prom, cheesy, i know.

Although we’re young, i definately don’t feel it. He left school at 16, and started working straight away, and after college, I started working, and have been for over 2 years now. We’ve lived together a year and a half, and have just bought our first home! So it’s all go.

Both our familys are fully supportive and are just as excited as us!

Close to 21, it wasn’t that long ago! I’m 23, my Fiance is 25. We’ve been together for 5 1/2 years. Both of us were born in NY, both have family in west coast Florida, and now live in Central Florida together. Fiance just finished grad school, starts his job next week. I will finish my BA degree just before the wedding, while working in my industry of study. And we’ve been engaged for almost 1 1/2 years already.

  • Wedding: June 2013

Well I am 20 my Fiance is 22, We got engaged 9 months after dating, even though after the first date we knew there was something special between us πŸ™‚ he told me he loved me on our 2nd date which was also the 2nd time we had ever met. The 1st date was the 1st time. It was a love at first site thing.  We waited 9 months though so family would be happy.  We have lived together for 2 years. We are getting married this December. If anyone has read my thread I started that will explain a lot….. Fmaily took over the original wedding πŸ™  We are very much in love and each others best friends. If you find one of us the other is close by. A lot of people think that is odd in our age group, but if he don’t want to go somewhere and I do we just don’t go and vice versa. It works out pretty good.  Happier than ever.   I am completing my BSN (bachlors of science in nursing) my Fiance is working making the money for us, he has a good job. So we are pretty lucky to be only 20 and 22.

  • Wedding: September 2012

I’m 21 in November and my husband is 23 in July. We met 3 years ago when we were both getting out of other relationships… we were ‘just friends’ for about 6-9 months before we were an official couple.  At the time that we met, we were both working a fulltime job in a nursing home; myself as a CNA and DH as a dietary aide and then part time at Red Lobster (where we met)!

What drew me to him was the fact that he was unbelievably confident, hard working and determined.  He saved and bought his first income property before he turned 20 years old, followed up by another a year later. He would literally only use the money he earned at Red Lobster to live on, and wouldn’t touch the money he made from his fulltime gig.  I really looked up to him for that, and I’m so thankful he does our finances now πŸ˜‰

About a year or so into our relationship, my sister and I moved into one of the apartments that he had for rent; when my sister moved out he moved in.  We were a happy little couple with no plans for marriage (in the near future) because we had everything we wanted right there in front of us.

DH and I both grew up in Christian families but we were not exactly practicing in our faith for the first few years of our relationship.  I would go to church, I believed- but it was easier for me to live the way I was than to be who I knew I was supposed to be. In August of 2011 DH went with his dad on a church retreat, he met Jesus there and literally came back a completely different man.  He was always wonderful, but this version was the most incredible, loving, affectionate person I have ever met in my life.

After he got back WE started growing closer in our walk with Christ… he moved out of the house, we stopped having sex, and by April of 2012 got engaged!  On September 8th, I married the most amazing man I know.  We may be young, but my husband was created to be my other half… and I was created to be his.

Every time someone says something about our lack of life experience or how we are ‘SO young’ I remember this:

1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

  • Wedding: May 2014

I’m 19 and Fiance is 20, just got engaged a couple months ago. Both in college, planning on waiting until after graduation to marry, so we will be 21/22. Most of my family actually got married at 21 and stayed happily together, so it never seemed like I was too young. I just cannot wait to turn 20 soon, because it does make me feel self conscious to say I’m engaged when I’m technically still a teenager. We’ve been together since we were 14/15, and I never doubt that I want to spend the rest of our lives together. I just HATE it when I tell people my age, and their facial expression changes, and I can tell they’re thinking “oh this young marriage won’t last.” I just want to yell that we have the most stable, loving relationship I could ever imagine and I’ve never gotten enough of him in over 5 years and he’s the only one I can picture myself with while giving birth, raising kids, moving to different places, and eventually holding hands sitting on the front porch when we’re old and wrinkly.

Sorry for the rant, I got one of those “looks” today from a professor

  • Wedding: August 2013

Hi all!

Just a bit about me, Me and my fiance are both 20, i’ll be 21 in December, and him next July, and we will marry in August! We live just outside of London, UK. We got engaged on Christmas Eve 2011, My 20th Birthday, after dating for 3 and half years.

We got together after our first kiss at our prom, cheesy i know, but thats how its happened.

We’ve now been together, over 4 years, just bought a house, both have full time jobs and are still happy!

So this is definately the right thing for us, and I couldn’t be happier.

 

I love reading everyones stories, none of my friends are at this point in their life yet, all being at uni, or single, so its nice to know there are girls out there my age, also doing these things! And to not be judged ‘for being too young’ obviously!

Another black sheep here –

I’m 18 (gasp) and I’ll be 19 when I get married in May. Fiance is 24. We’ve been together for 2 and a half years. We moved across the country together a year ago and have been living together. I definitely already feel married lol.

I graduated from high school a year early, definitely didn’t fit in with people my age and wanted to move onto bigger and better things…I have about 2 years of college done (biology major). I decided to take a year off when we moved. Right now I’m almost to where I can get in-state residency so I’m excited to go back to school! FI is an engineer at an electronics company.

We love going out to eat, seeing movies, and hanging out with our kitty cats. When it’s not too stinkin hot, we like to hike too.

Nobody has said anything to me directly but I definitely feel bad about what I assume some people think about it. Thinking I’m too young, or assuming I’m pregnant. I’m glad I have supportive family and friends!

I always thought I’d wait until after college but life ends up differently than you expect, and I’m not waiting another few years to marry my best friend. πŸ™‚

Im 20, Fiance is 32, big age difference i know but really he’s like my missing puzzle piece! I, myself am a baker, specializing in wedding and special occasion cakes, and my fiance use to work on the oil rigs until he moved here and now hes works as a carpenter. We got engaged 5 months after we started dating, and have been together 3 years since then. We have 2 amazing children together, and already function as a married couple/ family so the marriage next august will be more of a celebration to our family rather than the start of it. It’s going to be an intimate romantic affair and we’re both very excited to see everything put together!

  • Wedding: January 2013

@Joeydoodle:  This is such a great idea! I’m 19 (as of Friday) and my fiance is 27. We met at a Cub Scout Camp, and it took me until he treated a burn on my knee that I fell in love with him. We started dating right after I turned 18, and he proposed in July ’12 at the camp we met at. SURPRISE! That’s where we are getting married on January 5th. I am currently at university and he works full time as an educator. 

 

Thanks so much for posting this thread! It has been so stressful to plan our wedding during my first quarter of college, and I’ve only got 53 days left to go! 

I really want to start having kids, because after pretty much raising my two younger siblings, I have 9 years of parenting experience, and I want my own now! Alas, my mom and future husband think me having an education takes predecent. What do I do? I want to be a mommy!

I’m 17 years old. I have been with my sweetie since I was barely 15. We met through a mutual friend, one who had to CONVINCE him to be willing to meet me! She wasn’t trying to set us up or anything, but we immediately began to like each other and dated a month later. He proposed on our 2 year anniversary and we are getting married the day before our 3 year anniversary.

  • Wedding: April 2014

Hey all! I am 19, and my SO is also 19. We are looking to get engaged sometime in like May or June, so he will have been living on his own for awhile and I will be done with school. We are hoping to get married in April of 2014, so I will be 20, and he will be a month shy of turning 21.

We met the summer of 2011 through mutual friends, and began dating in December of that year. We will have been dating for about a year and a half when we get engaged, and our engagement will be 10 to 11 months, which seems long to me, but I’m sure it will fly by! Right now we are just hoping that our families will be able to make it out for the wedding, since we both have a lot of Out of Town family.
