How old were you when you first realized everyone around you is getting married or pregnant?? It’s been in the past year or so for me. I’m 24. I’d say it started around 23. I literally cannot look through former HS classmates’ facebooks without seeing wedding photos, engagement sessions, baby bumps, or babies.
I know I’m from a small hicktown so idk if it’s normal or not. I mean random girls have been getting knocked up since we were 16…but it’s only recently seemed to be spreading like wildfire lol

It probably started one facebook when I was younger, but for people around me it didn’t really hit much until I was in my late 20s. I don’t know if I’ll ever really experience everyone having babies at once.

@soontobemrsm11: Engagements spread like wildfire about 2 years ago for me (22)- right around college graduation time. My friends and I joke that babies are in the water because there are so many pregnancies now, which also makes sense (24).

The baby boom just really kicked off when I turned 30, marriage probably slowly built up to its peak 28-29…. Definitely depends on where you’re from. I grew up in a city suburb and EVERYONE went to college and most pursued real careers from there. Marriage came after people were “established” careerwise.

@Andthepupmakes3: that would’ve been nice lol the girls that did go to college seem to just now be getting engaged. the ones that didn’t are already married (or on their second marriages or divorced) with babies. It’s an interesting phenomena

I would say around 22 or 23 for me. I’m 23 now so fairly recently. Although now I’m part of that group who is now engaged/getting married, while a lot of my friends are not. Most are single in fact. No bombardment of babies yet though – I think a lot are waiting in order to get started with their careers now.

Hasn’t happened yet. My friends aren’t the marrying kind.

For me it’s been really popping up in the last year or so. My friends and I are graduating from our universities this year, so it makes sense to start moving in the direction of marriage. I have a lot of engaged friends right now.

Pregnant, probably 18. Although I knew tons of girls in highschool that were pregnant. But I only have a couple of friends that have gotten married or engaged yet, so that still hasnt hit.

Which time? LOL I’m at an age where several of my friends have married, had kids, divorced, had grandkids, remarried…

Most girls I went to school with had babies right out of school, and most of those got engaged/married around the same time. So 18-19. I got engaged at 18 and everyone thought I was pregnant.
Only just got married 3 weeks ago and now all those people have 7-8 year marriages and school aged kids.

For me it was around 19-21, but that’s probably because the friends I had at the time we’re a good 4-6 years older than me. Babies are the thing at the moment I’m noticing at 26, still doesn’t make me want one though lol
