    44 when I got engaged and I’ll be 44 when I get married.  🙂

    @dkacerek:  I agree…I’m getting married for the first time next month but it probably took me a week to get everything planned.  It has been a entirely drama-free zone.

    Engaged at 30 & will be married at 31.  I had come close to being married at 26 but luckily realized that that person was not for me.  I’m so glad that I waited 🙂

    @bunnyharriet:  I agree! We got engaged at 25, when I finished my master’s, and we were in a VERY different place than we were when we started dating at 21! Everyone is different, but for Fiance and I, a lot (including moving 1400 miles) changed in those 4 years. We’ll be 26 when we get married.

    There isn’t a “20” section of the poll, so I put in 21-25. 
    I was 20 and fi was 19. We are having a 2 year engagement, but now only 10 months to go!

    I had just turned 24 and he had turned 27. Both of us wanted to wait until he had found a full time jobs, had been working for at least 5 months, and had lived together for about a year. It didn’t take too long since we got engaged two years in. We’ll be 26 and 29 when we get married less than a year(!) from now.

    Engaged at 21, we’ll be married a week before my 22nd birthday. (FI will be 22, he’s 5 months older than I am). We had been together for almost 2 years when he proposed. 

    I think the reasons are different for everyone, but for us, we wanted to be engaged and have time to plan a wedding for right after we graduated from college. We wanted to be graduated, but we also wanted to be able to live together shortly after graduation and my faith tradition, as well as the fact that I’m studying to be a pastor, prohibits us from living together before marriage. Plus, it’s one of those things where we both know we are quite mature, as do all our family and friends (no one has given us any grief for getting engaged when we did, which I really respect), and we definitely know the level of committment we’re making. Judging from the poll results so did many ladies at my age!
