    I was 18 and he was 26 when we met and became friends. We were flirty and somewhat commited at this age too, but didn’t become serious until a year later at 19/27.

    I was 28 and my boyfriend was just shy of 40. That’s the way we roll in New York 😉

    I was 25 when I met Darling Husband, which is about average for our circle.

    I think those who met younger are overrepresented on WB because they’ve had a longer amount of time to think about and plan their wedding and engagement. Older brides (and those who met older) may also be more likely to elope or have smaller weddings, and I think those situations are also underrepresented here.

    Darling Husband and I met at the beginning of 5th grade, so I suppose we were about 9 years old.

    We didn’t start dating until we were 16/17 though.

    I don’t know that many people who met their spouse at that age, but I can think of 3-4 couples off the top of my head I know who got married who met their SO at the age of 18-21. 

    So I guess we might be *slightly* overrepresented on WB… or maybe just more vocal? I dunno.

    We were both 8 years old when we met, and our parents became friends that day so we saw each other pretty often. We started dating at 16 and are now almost 21.

    I met my husband when I was three and he was five! Our families were in the same neighbourhood family group. I knew him all through elementary school…and had a crush on him all through highschool. My grade 8 journal has a picture of a heart with his name drawn in it. Little did I know he had a crush on me too. We allllmost dated when I was in grade 10 and he was in grade 12, but then awkwardness got in the way and we both ended up dating other people. We lost touch after highschool, but then reconnected when I was 22 and the rest is history! I like to joke that he knew me in diapers (not really though lol)

    First time I met him I was 21.  The first time I remember meeting him I was 22.  Going to the movies with friends which turned into an imprompt to birthday celbration for me. 

    Turning 27 soon, that seems so long ago.

    We were both 21, starting our first year of graduate school. We met at the “new graduate student orientation.” Total nerds.
