My husband and I were both 26 when we got married.

I think my parents were 29 (mom) and 27 (dad) but I’m not 100% sure on that.

My in-laws were 18 (MIL) and 20 (FIL) when they got married.

We married at 27 so did my parents. I also had my son at 32, the same age as my mum when she had me.

My mother got married at about 28 and my father was about 30. I was about 36.5 and my husband had just turned 32 a few days before we got married.

My mother had me when she was 29 and I’m currently pregnant and will have my first child at 37.

So not much similarity in my family. My Mom came from a different era with much more traditional values whereas I’m a feminist. She would never have married a younger man.

My mom married my dad at 26 or 27 ๐Ÿ™‚ I married my husband at 28 ๐Ÿ™‚ It amuses me that’s how it worked out for us.

I was 24 at my wedding and hubby was 26 in 2016. My parents got married at the exact same ages in the mid 80s. Not sure about hubbys parents… I think they were actually younger.

I am currently 38 but will be 39 by the time I’m married. FH is 35 and will be 36 by the time we’re married.

I don’t know the exact ages my parents were when they got married but they were in their early 20s. No similarities at all lol

I got married at 22 (wow, that sounds young now that I’m 35) and my husband was 28. 

My mom was 20 when she married my dad, and he was 21. 

Funny thing is, my husband and I got married after knowing each other 16 months, and so did my parents! We just celebrated anniversary 12 in March and my parents are coming up on number 38 in November!

monicageller :  my fiance and I will both be turning 35 five and six months after our wedding. My parents married young – Mom was a month shy of 20 and Dad was 23. I can’t imagine getting married that young! I was an entirely different person than I am now lol
