Do you mostly socialize with people the same age or older? What do your single friends think of you getting married so young? We have some friends in serious relationships, but none who are engaged. I wonder if I will still have things in common with my friends once I’m married.

Well I’m 27. Most of my friends are around my age 25 and older, I have alot that are in their early to mid thirites. Mostly Fiance friends since he’s 36. I have friends that are married and single, kids or no kids. That hasnt really affected our relationships too much. My friends without kids know that I’m not around as much and so does my single friends.

Well, I have one Bridesmaid or Best Man that is 18, we met her at our youth group (I’m 20). But my second youngest Bridesmaid or Best Man is a month shy of 25, lol… the other 4 are in their late 20s or 30s. Our “couple friends” tend to be 30s or older. I find that getting married and settling down young does give us a lot more in common with older people than people our age- but then, I personally have always gotten along better with people older than me. My closest friends are in their late 20s. Most college students are into partying, drinking, staying up late- I’m just not.

I’m 28 and for the most part all my friends are around my age or older. I have maybe one gal that I love to death who is 21, but other than that, nada.

Most of our friends are a few years older than us, with the exception of one couple that is a few years younger.

I am the youngest in my group of friends, because of when my birthday was I got put a year up in school and Fiance is 3 years older than me and so all his friends are that age.
Not many of my friends or FI’s are married but heaps of them already have kids. I am 28 and Fiance is 31 so we are pretty much bang on with the average age to get married in NZ!

So most of my friends are one or two years younger than me but most of them have gotten married or are about to. I am not affected by them because we have different idea about relationship and marriage so I only do what i should when I am ready.

Most of my friends are a bit older then me…. Pretty much everyone is within a 3-4 year range though.

I’m 24 and most of my friends are my age or older. None of my friends think I am too young to be getting married (25 when I say I do, and that’s a pretty common age). I’m not worried about what my friends will do once I am married because my SO and I have lived together for over a year and been together forever and a day. As a result, we are pretty much married without the wedding at this point.

I’m 25 and most of my friends are my age or a little bit older. All my single friends are so excited that I’m getting married; FI & I have been togther since we were 13.
I doubt if my relationship will change after we get married, if anything I hope we grow stronger.

Generally older. SO is almost 12 years older than I. A lot of my peer group find that a difficult pill to swallow. Close friends generally 3-8 years older I guess. Our couple friends tend to be older, and my peers never invite us out as a couple. I once said, “do you mind if I bring SO?” and they said no. It was a house party and 50 or so people were going, they didn’t want him there because he was too old! So frustrating! I’m bored of going to things on my own now, so I rarely see that group anymore.

I’m 24. My best friends are also 24, but I have close friends who are 26 and 27.

I’m 25 and my friends are within 3-4 years on either side of that. I know people of all ranges (just that sort of job I’m in) but my good friends are all close to my age. That said, I’ve lived away from these friends for the last few year and am moving even further in about 10 days. Lucikly we stay close still.

Most of my friends are either my age or older (but all are in their 20’s, save for a handful in their 30’s-50’s). I have many single friends, and most think it’s pretty natural for us to be engaged because that’s the road we’ve been on for a while now.
I do have several married/engaged friends, though most are from my high school days. Only one of my college friends is engaged (my best friend and maid of honor).

We’re the same age or younger than most of our friends. The only younger people we hang out with are siblings, basically. I have a few married/engaged friends, some with children. There are also quite a few single. It’s a good variety/balance.
