I’m 49, he’s 48. If we get married this year, we can both turn 50 as married folk. He’s awesome; I’ve been single since for 14 years. He was definitely worth the wait!

It’s ok, mrbee.  Even the 40-something board is not all that busy, and a 50-something board would probably be just me, talking to myself.  If no one minds, I’ll just consider myself forty-sixteen.  😉

Hi.  42 here.  Just got married last August to my 40 year old hubby.  First marriage for him and I had been divorced for over 10 years.  Feel like a kid again.  Smile

I turned 41 last month and my FH is 30 and will turn 31 a week after our October 2010 wedding. Neither of us has had a religious ceremony. I had a non-denominational service in 2000 but wasn’t married for more than 6 months. This feels like my first wedding as we’re going through sessions with our Rabbi and we’re planning together. I’m so excited!

First time bride…just turned 45. Woop-woop!  I just had to wait longer than usual for the right guy to come along. (But I don’t feel a day over 35.)

Seriously, I tell friends and co-workers that I spared myself the “practice marriage” that many women have. I was a late bloomer no way ready to be married before age 30, and it took me 9 years from then to meet my wonderful Fiance. Sometimes I wish we found each other at 25, but I know in my heart it couldn’t have worked any other way.

My only sadness: a severe childhood illness left me unable to have children. Even at 44, I hope for an “oops” but I know it’s less likely for me than waking up on the moon.

Any 40+ brides contemplating motherhood?
