There is no “perfect age” IMO to get married. It is relative…I think the perfect age to get married is when those two people who are in love and have made the committment to each other to spend the rest of their lives with each other.

To say to a person you are too young, or it is about time or some other snarky remark isn’t about the person or the couple at all. It is just about that person and them interjecting their judgments and perceptions on you.

I’m 24 and so if Fiance, although he’ll be 26 by the time we get married, and I will turn 26 a month later. A lot of our same age friends are getting married too or were already married last summer…so it wasn’t a shock to anyone, especially since we’ve been together since age 16. Nobody really makes comments on our age… I would find that so rude! Who knows your relationship better than you or your FI? only you…no one else can decide if you’re “old enough” but yourselves.

I think it’s funny because I am 24 and we are getting married next summer when I will be 25. I am currently in graduate school, so I am with people close to my age (within a couple years at least) and a lot of people are amazed that I am getting married “so young”. But I have been with my Fiance for 7 years, so it’s not like we are rushing it! I feel like since a lot of them have not been in long term serious relationships, that they assume people our age are not ready to get married. It’s annoying, but people using get it when I tell them how long we have been together πŸ™‚

I’m 20, about 21. Somehow I do not feel like this too young at all?

I was married last month at 22 and will be 23 in May. My husband is 23. I was helping a patron at work, and she saw my engagement ring and told me I was too young to get married. W-oo-w, thanks strange woman. I would have said something, told her how my fiance’s graduated and has a stable job, and how I’m working part time and working on my master’s, but then I decided it was none of her business. I just smiled and told her I look young…

I’m 24 and Fiance is 36. We get our own share of comments based on our ages and age difference. Are you old enough to be in love and to know the meaning of commitment? If so, than that’s all that matters. Don’t let anyone dictate what age is right for you to commit to the one you love!

@ejh08278: Answer with this: “Old enough to know better, and smart enough to keep my mouth shut.” Watch their jaw drop. Always worked for me. πŸ˜‰ Congratulations to you!

I’m 27, and Mr. Rowe is 31.

I think it’s less about age and more about just being at the point where you feel ready. I probably would have been ready to marry if I had met the right person at 22. I went through the fun party stage, and tired quickly of that lifestyle.. it’s just never been me. I’m more of a homebody, crafty, hostess, nurturer.. and have always always wanted to be a wife and mother.

However, I have friends who are in their late 20’s/early 30’s and still are in the fun, out to bars every night, wild party stage.. and still aren’t ready to settle down.

I’m 19, turning 20 1.5 months before the wedding, Fiance will be 3 months shy of the big 21. We’re high school sweethearts, friends for 6 years, dating for 2.5, and living together for 1! I get age comments all the time, but what does it matter, because I’m happy!
