I was reading a fellow Bee’s post about being 20-something and getting married and getting the whole ‘you’ll be missing out’/’regret that later’ feedback.
It got me thinking, if some would assume getting hitched in your mid-twenties is too soon…. at what age are most women first getting married?

I got engaged at 26 and will be married at 27. I’ve been with my Fiance since I was 19 and we’ve been living like a married couple for the past 3 years. I don’t feel like I’ve been “missing out” on anything.

I’ll be 23, almost 24, which makes me the oldest out of any female in my family to get married. Between my sister and my cousins, most got married somewhere between 19-21.

I was 26. i think it all depends on how you perceive life and what you want out of it.
I don’t feel like I miss out on anything. I think being married is one of the best journey’s in life and having found that someone you love and will spend your time with.

It depends on the person. I will be 29, which some think is “old”. Where I am from I am practically an old maid already. I myself could have never gotten married before 27. I just wasn’t in the right state of mind.

I was 25, and Darling Husband was 26. Definitely didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything!

I was 34 when I got married to my husband legally. I was 35 for our family/religious ceremony though! 😀

I’ll be exactly 30 and a half when we get married.

I’ll be 33. I needed my 20s to travel, live abroad, get my masters, learn who i am, date a lot of the wrong guys, etc. so it worked out the way it should have for me and what i need.

First marriage and I will be 29. Woot! I ALMOST got married at 19, but that would have ended in divorce because we were both immature although we swore to everyone we were so mature for our age. (I think that comes standard in most teens/early 20’s handbook to life)
Check out the divorce rate for couples under 25. I think that’s why everyone tries to tell them to wait since they have the highest numbers out of any age group.

@Ms. Purple: I’m with you on this one! Couldn’t have said it better myself!
I’ll be 24 when I marry my FH this Saturday, FH 23, and when we have our formal wedding with full guest list next Jan. 25/24. After 4 years of us time, we can’t wait to get started on a big family… how is this missing out?! 🙂

I have ALWAYS wanted to get married young, so this has worked out perfectly 🙂
