I will be 26 and my fiance will be 25 when we get married 🙂 

When my parents got married, my mom was 29 and my dad was 33! It was my father’s second marriage – his first marriage he was only 18 (shotgun wedding lol). 

My wedding will be just a couple weeks after their 29th wedding anniversary!

I was 29, my parents were 29/30. DH is 35, and his parents were around 19 (since divorced).

My parents anniversary is two days after ours. Hope we can follow in their footsteps, they’ve now been together 35ish years.

They are divorced and remarried… don’t recall their ages when they remarried. but probably late 30s and early 40s for both couples.

Parents were 19 and 21. Sister and her husband were 22 and 23. My future husband and I will likely be 24 and 25.

We’re planning on getting married in spring of 2022 so, if all goes according to plan, he’ll be 32 almost 33 and I’ll be 31. My parents were 20 when they got married. (And to be perfectly honest, I feel like if they had waited, they wouldn’t have been together.)

My SO and I will be 31 & 30 by the time we get married. My parents were 30 & 29-about-to-turn-30. I believe his parents were 31 & 27.

So I’ll be the same age as my mom, and he’ll be the same age as his dad.

Hah we were 10 years older than them! And I remember making a comment on that when we got married. 

My parents met sophomore year in high school and got married when they were 19. DH and I got married at 29 (me) and 28 (him).

I was 33, husband 31.  His mum 24, dad 23. My mum 19, dad 24.

Husbands parents are very happily married, whereas my parents lasted about 3 years.  It was a shotgun wedding and a horrible idea to marry in the first place, but I think they felt it was “the right thing to do”.

I would have liked to get married in my late 20s but unfortunately hadn’t met the person I wanted to marry.  When I did, we didn’t waste much time 🙂
