  • Wedding: July 2014

I am 23 and FH is 25. Just got engaged about two weeks ago. It really feels young for me, honestly. I imagined being a cat lady for a while but we just kind of fell into that old married couple routine and we like it! I always thought there was so much I wanted to do and accomplish before I got married but there is no reason I can’t accomplish those things with him. In fact, it’ll be more fun!

 

We met online so it’s kind of been an atypical situation. We have lived together a year and 4 months or so but we were technically “dating” about a year and a half before that (we didn’t want to put serious labels until we were around each other more but we had met a couple of times within this period/talked every day/were not attached to anyone else).

I was 23 and Fiance was 27 when we met, 25/29 when we got engaged, and will be either be 27/31 or 28/32 depending on the month we get married in (our birthdays are very close!)

Well be engaged later this year and we will both be 22. We’ve been together almost 5 years, living together 2.5 years. And well be 24 when we get married.

I got engaged at 23 (a few months before my birthday) while my fiance was 25 and although before I would have said it was too young, it seems like a good time. We are planning a 2 year engagement though to save up for our wedding (We will be 26 and 28). We dated for just under two years and lived together for the majority of it before we got engaged. Honestly, adopting our dog over the summer was far more serious of a commitment than getting engaged with a ring.

The first time (gosh that sounds bad, lol) my SO was 31 and I was 21. We had been dating for 4+ years before he proposed. That relationship bombed. I learned valuable lessons, and moved on.

Now my SO is 24 and I am 23, we’ve been friends for over 5 years and have been dating for 10+ months. The hints from MommaBlogger and SO show that an engagement will happen soon. 🙂

We got engaged this past Valentine’s Day and I am 30 and he is 34.  We had been dating 7.5 years before he proposed and believe it or not it wasn’t until last year that we really felt ready.  Felt like the timing was perfect!

At 20 we were together for a little over 4 years by the time we got engaged. Now, 4 years later, we will both be 24 when we get married in 8 days!!!

alohakay:  I am 24, my Fiance is 24, we’ve been together for 2 years and 3 months and he proposed last month. We’ve lived together for a year and we’ve been practically inseparable from day one. i’m from Dallas, so it’s not considered young here.

I was 25, he was 35, and we’d been dating just over 2 years. Getting married next year!

I got engaged at 21 the same week I got engaged I also got married. He was deploying soon so we didn’t really have much of an option. Once he is home we will have our big wedding. We knew one another for 2 months. I know people say all the time I’m crazy, but next week is our 1 year anniversary and I honestly don’t know where I would be without him. When you know….well you know!

My first marriage…I was 22 he was 28… lasted 2 years. I was not sure who I was and what I wanted and when I changed and he did not, things did not work out. <br /><br />This time around…I was 30 and he was 32 when proposing and I will be 33 and him 35 when we get married. We have a toddler together and are both very secure in who we are as people. I think that more than age is what matters.

I got engaged a week ago today!  I turned 30 a couple of months ago, and Fiance is 29.  We dated for about 3 years.
