    @soontobemrsm11:  Hahaha! I am also from a hicktown and definately started seeing the accidental pregancies around 21. Most of my classmates have kids, some have 2-3! We used to say there is nothing better to do than drink and f***! There are only 2 that are married that I can think of though.

    I feel like my social circle is a bit slower on the marriage / babies thing. We are all between 28-33 or so, and quite a few of my friends are still not married, and only a few have children. So I guess now? 🙂

    @soontobemrsm11:  I’m 34, and only a small handful of my close friends are married with or without kids. Many of my friends are now in long-term relationships, but I also still have several single friends (some with, and some without children from previous, unmarried relationships). There was never really any big wave of it happening.

    I guess around 21-22 for me.

    When Darling Husband proposed to me (at 20) I only knew of one or two other couples who had gotten engaged. Now almost two years later, at 22, *several* of our old friends are either engaged, married, or having kids.

    This comes in waves for me. The first happened when I was around 22, and all of my high school and some of my university friends got married. The second wave came around when I was 26 or so when the rest of my university friends and grad school friends got married. Aside from one of my other girlfriends (who is getting married in two months), I was the last in my group to get married. However, none of DH’s and my friends from work are married, so I’m sure there will be one last wave in the next couple of years.

    Well, I’m 22 and know of at least 40 girls I went to school with, who had at least one child by 18 (all outside of marriage, very few are still with their child’s father); and 6 couples who married between 17 and 23 who were separated or divorced within 12 months.

    It’s as though we’re in a ‘lull’ at the moment, with very few people getting engaged, married, divorced or pregnant.
