    Together at 19 (me) and 20 (OH); got engaged at 24; OH was 25. When we marry, he’ll be 28, and I’ll be nearly 28.

    Never thought I’d marry before 30 lol

    31 ENGAGED, will be 33 MARRIED. Such an oldie compared to you ladies…I would have been married at 25 to my first love, I was with him for 8 years from the age of 17/18, but the story is just too messed up to go into. I THANK GOD, I never did and waited until now……I would have been unhappy in hindsight in the situation we were in. I  am strong, I know what I want now and I am financially secure. – I am so ready and excited, and have been with my partner for 4 years –  it’s now or never.

    Congrats to all you younger brides, I wish you well, I am just stating why I am marrying a little later and why I am happy to be….it’s no dig at you young brides who are happily in love: and know what you want)

    When we started dating: he was 24 (11 days after we met he turned 24) and I was 23.

    When we got engaged: he was 25 and I was 24.

    When we get married: he will be 27 and I will be 26.

    (His birthday is August and mine is in January so he’s just a few months older then me).

    @rdownie1:  Yay someone on here close to me.  I am just sneaking in at 32 (my bday is 6 weeks after the wedding.  It might have been in the back of my mind when picking dates.

    I’d just turned twenty, and we’d been together for 6 1/2 years.

    I was far too young – both in terms of age and maturity. I wish I’d had the guts to say “Please don’t do this now, wait a few years”. That wasn’t an option – he’d told literally everyone he knew (except my father!!) that we “were getting engaged” before he asked me.

    That was 15 months ago, and in that time I’ve moved to a new country, dropped out of university, began a job in a new profession and learned a ridiculous amount about myself. He moved over to join me back in September, and we’ve lived together ever since.

    If only we’d experienced all of this before getting engaged. Had he proposed in 2 or 3 years time, it would have been so much more exciting for me. Instead I’ll end up having a 5 year engagement (minimum) and resenting that neither I nor anybody else involved is excited.

    We live and learn!
