I wholeheartedly agree with this post. If anyone ever called an older encore bride on the fact that just because she got divorced does not mean she has all the answers (if any), the boards would be in an uproar. Individual posters shouldn’t be judged by their age but by the content they are contributing to the site.

I don’t think of people here on the boards as young.  I think of them as immature no matter the age.  I work with a 62 year old immature woman…immaturity knows no age.  πŸ™‚

I admit I am wrong for assuming people are young. When threads are made with poor grammar and punctuation I always assume the poster is 18. Or if it’s full of drama and scandal.

I’m 33 and guilty of drama and scandal, so I suppose I shouldn’t throw stones.

For what it’s worth, OP, I always find your posts insightful and mature.

Now back to my Maury show.

I try to only bring age into it when age clearly is an issue… like it’s a very young couple and living a bit more seems to be the only logical solution etc.

Point taken, though… immaturity knows no age lol.

I feel similar.  It grinds my gears to no end.  I’ve had a co-worker go on and on about people my age aren’t mature enough to make big decisions and shouldn’t marry.  FI and I met at 21, engaged when I was 22, and will be married in 39 days when I’m 24 (FI will be 29, but I digress).  I am probably one of the most mature people could possibly meet.  It has nothing to do with my age, but with life experiences.  I’m sure members on here or in real life don’t like me because of my age and maturity, but because of the person that I am.  =)

I’ve only been on this site for a few weeks now, but I’ve never read a post and thought “oh, they must be young” or “oh, they must be old”. I love that this site protects your anonymity, and therefore, doesn’t give your age away. All that matters is what we’re sharing with one another regardless of age. Waiting brides, future brides, and past brides all come together to share their thoughts and experiences. Why should it matter how old someone is?

I could totally tell how old you are just by reading this post….
