Just fine. I think age is very relative in terms of when someone is “too young” to marry. I think of personalities more and what is “too immature” to marry. 

We were married at 22 (I was just shy of 23) and everything is working out great for us. However, we’ve had life experiences that most people in their 30’s haven’t had and worked through them (both before our relationship and during our relationship) that makes everyone we meet think we are more like 28 years old (we’re 23 and 24 now).

Most people, I believe, should wait until they are older than 25 to marry. But it is very dependent on the people in the relationship.

Both of us will be 24 by the time we tie the knot and will have been together for for 6.5 years. I don’t think it’s necessarily “too young” or “too old”, it’s whether or not you are mature enough and committed to settling down. We mostly keep to ourselves and prefer staying in as we are in a different stage in our lives compared to others our age (going out, partying it up, living “the dream” of singlehood). We are beyond that stage. Most of the friends we do hang out with are older than us or at least in the same stage of life as us ๐Ÿ™‚

I believe that 28 is actually the average marriage age.

I am 28 now and will turn 29, 2 weeks before the wedding, no one has really said anything about my age, Fiance will be 34.  I agree with pp that 28 seems to be a pretty average age to get married. ๐Ÿ™‚

well i don’t think its too young at all lol … your grown you learned who you are you likely had some schooling lived on your own had a few serious relationships had a few jobs maybe know what you want our of life depeneding on you as a person might be building the foundations for your adult life fully by now (i am 27) 

 

 

 

i think 2 young is before you have dated gone to school lived alone seen some of the world or figured out who you are and what you need by 28 you have come into who you are as a person and lived enought to know your with the right person 

 

 

 

it’s def not too old unless your like form one of those places where ppl get married out of highschool or b4 hand lol 

 

 

 

i think 28 is about the right time to get married 

i just noticed lol i will be 28 when I will be married lol next summer ๐Ÿ˜€

28 isn’t even generally considered “young” for a couple to be married. Those people are silly! My Fiance and I are both 27, and I’ve heard both, “You’re so young!” And “Well finally!”. I second the poster that said pfffft to that. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was 22 the first time, way too young. Now the second time I will be 30. I don’t think you can be too old to be married.

Darling Husband and I were 26 and 25 (he’s 3 months younger than me) when we got married and got a lot of “why did you wait so long?!?” Granted, we are both from small towns in the deep south so it’s not uncommon for people we grew up with to be on divorce #2 by our age! (This is our first marriage and we dated for 9 years)
