My Mom married my Dad when she was 40 and then had me later that year. The two love the hell out of one another and at times it is boarderline gross.

I am 34 years old. A year ago, my boyfriend dumped me out of nowhere and moved cross country. 

I was in shock. When I found out he was leaving his child alone with his exwife, I realized he wasn’t worth mourning. 

I asked out a man that I had liked for years. We’re getting married in July. We both knew by the third date that there was no one else in the world.

My ex husband walked out and left me with a 3 year old just as I was turning 30. I met my wonderful new husband and remarried at 33. We had our daughter together when I was 34. Its definitely not to late to start a new beautiful life!

Yes! I was 37 when I divorced, quit my job, sold my home (at a huge loss), and moved to a different city to go back to school full-time. I just graduated with my doctorate degree in music and have been with a wonderful man for almost three years! We recently bought my e-ring! Life is wonderful now!!!

My aunt broke it off with her D-bag Fiance and canceled the wedding at age 36… I forget which age she met my uncle, but they got married when she was 42 and they have two beautiful, healthy children now! It’s never too late!

Be strong.  He doesn’t want what you want.  Don’t lose sight of what you want.  Break off this relationship that isn’t going to end the way you want it too.  Somewhere, there is probably a man who will be happy to give you what you want.  But if you are tied up in this dead end relationship you’ll never find out.  Wish you the best of luck.

Yes. I met my now Fiance at 43, two years after his divorce. I had serious, long term relationsips and a failed engagment from many years back. This is the happiest and most peaceful I have ever felt in a relationship.

My friend who is 39 got married for the first time last Saturday. Another friend remarried and had a beautiful, healthy baby girl at 41.

So at 35, you can absolutely still have it all. Just be sure to not let the past hold you back!

I was widowed at age 26, dated a whole bunch of losers, and finally met my Fiance at almost 34.  I’ll be 35.5 when we get married.  Yeah it’s not how I pictured life, but I’m so lucky that none of the losers worked out because I can’t imagine missing out on the rest of my life with my Fiance.  He’s that amazing (sorry to brag but I’m still in awe of how wonderful he is).  I’m really sorry your relationship is ending, I know it’s hard even when you’re the one making that decision, but it sounds like you have a good reason for moving on.  When you find the right one, it will be worth the wait and turmoil of all the previous relationships.  I hated hearing that when I was single, but it really is true.

I got married at 37 and we’re expecting our first baby now (I’m 39) so yes it’s definitely possible.
