Congratulations! My parents got married when my mom was 19 and dad 22. He had just finished his engineering degree and my mom was still in school for teaching. They waited 7 years before I was born, then my mom stayed at home with my sister and I, and they’re still happily married.

That is amazing! I got married at 22, one month shy of 23. DH was 23. Around here, I guess that’s considered pretty young but we just passed our 5 year dating anniversary and have lived together for almost our whole relationship. Even though people thought we were semi young, I trust our marriage. I wouldn’t have changed it for the world.

That’s great!  Congrats!  I’m married to the man I fell in love with at age 16 and couldn’t be happier, but we wanted to wait til we were more settled in life before getting married.  But I agree, sometimes you find the right one early in life!

Congrats!  I totally get you on the “old souls” comment too, haha!  It’s nice to hear that the people closest to you were so supportive of your marriage as well!

Cheers to the next 8 years!

Congratulations!  It’s inspiring to hear stories like yours, since most of the time you only hear about how young marriages usually end in divorce. Keep doing whatever you’re doing, it’s obviously working.
