    wow everyone is so young here!

     

    Met at 5years of age, dated from 25 years old age, engaged at 30 and married at 31 and Im the first of my friends (a lot of whom are going out with their boyfrriends 8+ years) are the same age as me and not engaged!!

     

    I guess its where Im from (Ireland) …..most people date for at least 5 years before getting engaged! (very low divorce rates)

    Hi.

    30-and over is a pretty huge group, especially when you consider how specifically the other ages are broken down here.

    Life doesn’t stop at 30. Love doesn’t, either.

    I’m 40. I got enaged at 40. That’s not the same thing as 30, or 35, or 45, or 50, or 70. 

    And I will grant you that with some of the ages I just mentioned, there’s less likelihood of being active on the Bee due to generational differences and using technology, so it’s not like they’re hanging out here waiting to answer this poll. But I think it’s important to remember that marriages, and second marriages, start at all ages. My great-aunt, widowed for 20 years, remarried at age 84. Which is also not the same thing as 30.

    I was 23 and Fiance was 27 when he proposed, and we’ll be 24 and 28 when we get married. We’ve been together since I was 20 and he was 24.
