    We had both just turned 22. 🙂 I had just vowed to never date a guy in college again, but then he persuaded me. I usually wanted to date someone a little bit older and more mature, but I guess you can’t determine maturity by age because he is exremely mature. And successful with a great job and determination already.

    I was 19 and he was 20. Met on the first day of second year of university, and we started dating pretty much right away.

    @BrandNewBride:  My parents got married at those ages!

    I was 22 and he was one day away from turning 24. We’ll be getting married at 26 and 27!

    There do seem to be lots of high school sweethearts on the Bee! I only know ONE married couple who met in high school in real life. I do know tons of people who got married right after college to someone they met in college (this seems very common in the US South, where I grew up).

    @worldtraveler:  

    I was 25 when I met my husband. I’m glad I met him then, because I was not mature enough for a real relationship before that point in my life. He is the best man I have ever been with.

    I don’t think that people are meeting their spouses earlier, especially when you consider the average age of marriage. Where I live, the average age for marriage is 28 for women and 31 for men.

    I am glad that I didn’t marry my high school sweetheart like he wanted. That marriage would have surely ended in divorce.

    Wow a lot more people met during high school age than I would have thought. As a side note, my parents were childhood sweethearts 🙂

    My husband & I met back in 1989, we were 14 and 15 (puppy love) then we dated again in high school. But then went our seperate ways for about 15 years  then in 2009 we found each other again and just celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary!!!

    We met and started dating when we both were 17 (: I do think there are more highschool sweethearts on the bee, because there’s such a broad spectrum of people. I only know one or two other couples from my highschool that are still together, same with my Fiance. It seems much more common on WB than it is IRL in our area.

    I was 12 and he was 16! We didn’t start to date until 31 years later, though and now have been together 4 years and married a year and a half.
