I’m in my 20s, but I’m closer to 30 than I am to 20 and my Fiance is in his 30s so I usually cruise the 30 something boards more often… I have seen a few interesting threads in 20 somthing about age differences and ageism in terms of weddings.

I have actually never looked at this particular board…I’m 24 and my Fiance is 26.  

@Ms. Polar Bear:  maybe that’s why it’s dead-it’s all complaining! lol

There has been posts about this 20 something board.  People want it split because they feel a maturity difference between the ages of 20-25 and 26-29.  I disagree.  While I am only 22, I feel as if I very mature for my age for certain reasons.  I had to grow up fast.  Not my choice, but it was the best thing that happened to me.

I think the splitting idea is crazy…your maturity level is not related to your age…in my experience…

@jen24au: I agree with you as well.  Most people are surprised when I mention my age.  I’m thought to be older.

OK here’s something specifically for the 20-somethings (especially early 20’s):

It sucks that so many of my bridesmaids are still in college!  I’m 23 and I graduated college in May 2009, but many of my friends took longer.  My Maid/Matron of Honor has a thesis paper due the day after my shower so she can’t make it, AND she’s graduating college 2 days after my wedding!  It would be nice if everyone in my wedding party was done with school and had 9-5 jobs like me and Fiance.

And also, what’s with everyone thinking you need to start having kids as soon as you get married?  I want to start having babies when I’m 29-30, I’m not getting married just so I can be a mom right away.

@Ms. Polar Bear: Yes.  Of course there is going to be 20 year olds who aren’t as mature as others.  But from what I’ve read, people older than 25, feel like their life changed because they’re taking on more responsibilities.  Hell, I WISH I didn’t have to take on so many responsibilities at the age of 14.  I always tell J that I never experienced life as my age.  It’s always older.  I’m not complaining, it’s just the way that it is.

Also, there are people who are in their 30s and 40s who haven’t matured yet and probably never will.  My mother is a prime example.
