blankenshiptobe:  Congrats!!!  We have about 7 months to go. Honestly I was wondering if I’d ever get married and Fiance had accepted he never would. How things change ๐Ÿ™‚

I was 19, he was 21… we will be getting married when I am 21 and he is 23. He proposed on our 5 year anniversary.

I honestly don’t think age matters at all.. or how long you have been together. We started dating when I was only 14 and if you would have asked me then if I planned on marrying my fiance I would have said yes, he would have said the same.

When I hear of these “young couple” stats, I think of the 19, 20, and 21 year old couples.  They also don’t take emotional age or maturity into account, so they can’t apply to everyone!

Fiance is 38 and I’m 27… little age gap there.  We dated for 6 months when he proposed, but he bought the ring at 3 months.  I think we both knew pretty fast that this was IT!

Fiancé and I started dating when he was 19 and I was 22. We’d been dating for four years when he proposed last December. When we get married next May, he will be 24 and I will be 27.

  • Wedding: October 2012

DH and I began dating in March of 2005 when we were both 15, and got engaged in February of 2009 (just shy of our four-year anniversary) at the age of 19. When we got married on October 12, 2012 (about a year and a half ago), DH had just turned 23 (on October 5th), and I was a week away from my 23rd birthday (October 19th). We are now both 24.

Bless you for having some sense. If you browse the boards long enough, you’ll end up coming across many stories of bees who married young and just wish they’d waited because eventually the relationship ended. I’ve even seen some go from the boastful ‘we’re 24 and been married for 8 months, so obvi proof that young marriages work’ and then posting a few months later about getting a divorce. 

For the record, I don’t think 24 is too young, but it really depends on where you are in life and whether or not you are your own independent person that is entirely self-sufficient.

  • Wedding: August 2014

We started dating when I was 17 and got engaged when I was 20. We will be married this August when I am 21 & he is 22. I used to worry about age but those worries aren’t important to me anymore. A lot of my friends married at age 19 and our parents were married before their 20s.

H and I started dating when he was 18 and I was 20. We got engaged after dating for just over a year and a half, when he was 19 and I was 21. We got married a year later, at ages 20 and 22. We’ve now been married for almost four years, together for over six years.
