Hi! This is my first post!

My fiance and I started dating when I was 23 and he was 25. We dated almost 4 years, and lived together for 2.5 years before he proposed. I was 27. When we get married, I’ll be 29 and he’ll be 30.

I know lots of people here have said that it’s different for everyone, and I have to agree. It’s whatever works for you. If you know you want to marry him, stick by your guns and hopefully your parents/family will see how serious you are, and in turn take you seriously.

I was 15 and he was 19 when we started dating. We got engaged when I was 24 and he 28, and will be getting married at 25 & 30. We also knoew from very early on that we would be getting married, but I wanted to finish school (I am finishing up grad school now) and he wanted to start building his career before any weddings! The timing has worked out perfectly for us, and because my family knows how serious and committed we are, they are really happy. I too am the oldest child in my immediate and extended family, so this is our first family wedding, and no one really knows what to do, so we are all figuring it out together! Getting married at 24/25 is considered young where I am, late 20s seems to be more the norm, so I can relate to you in that way. Just do it when the timing feels right, if you are serious about it, and if they like him, you will be supported!

Wow that’s a lot of posts. We met when I was 18, started dating when I was 22, Engaged at 24 (almost 25) and will be married at 26! He’s a year and six months older than me. I don’t know if any of these ages make you feel better. I think it’s best to keep talking about the marriage issue with the fam, they will come around!

We started dating when I was 19 (almost 20) and got engaged at the age of 23.  We haven’t for sure set a date yet for the wedding, but I will at least be 25 years at the earliest we will have the wedding.  My family and my fiancee’s are still getting used to the idea (though they are happy too) but I think it’ll still take some time for them to feel really comfortable about it.  Just make sure you do what’s best for you and keep on talking with your family – I agree with HarleyQuinn. I’m just happy that he wants to the spend the rest of my life with me… Whenever we get married will be the right time :-).  Good luck!!!

We started dating when we were both 25. We will be engaged when I’m 25 and he’s 26. And hopefully married when we’re both 26.

I’m a young one…and a fast one 😛
We met when we were 18, started officially dating 4 months later (still 18), got engaged 3 months later (still 18, almost 19), and we will be married in August, at 20. 

So yeah, we are given a hard time OFTEN. We got used to it, and know that as long as we’re ready to get married, our parents are supportive, other people’s opinions don’t matter.
