Got married at 19 the first time. I was 6 months pregnant. Had 2 kids together. He’s a wonderful dad and a good man, we just weren’t right for each other. Divorced at 25. Still best friends and Co parents. Will be 35 when I get married this time. SO is 30 and it will be his first marriage.

Was 27, almost 28, at the time of my first marriage. Separated less than a year later (against my wishes). I am now 31 and anticipating a proposal from my bf sometime soon.

Met at 19 had 1st daughter at 21 married at 21.
Realised I had made the biggest mistake of my lie when it became apparent he was controlling, abusive and downright just a nasty person 80% of the time.
Had 2 other children and a marvelous step son walked into my life at 23. They were what kept me going I believed they needed a Dad.
At 30 I told him it was over but he wouldnt have non of it got courage to leave at 34.
I will be 38 when I marry my best friend and my past has made me know when something is really right.
I dont believe age was the factor I was 19 he was 33.
I believe I didnt know him long enough and if I had I would have never married him.
If you were to ak me what I would have done again firstly Id never have met him but really I would have waited till around 25 that is when I started to alter and become braver in my mind.
My past has made me who I am and I have 3 wonderfull children and a step son so in that respect it wasnt a mistake.
I now have the most wonderful Fiance that makes all my days good ones and we both appreciate that happiness because we know what was wrong the 1st time.
If he is your friend and you have a strong bond and foundations that helps so much. I would not choose to be and never was friends with my ex that was fundementally so very wrong.

18 the first time. I’ll be about 28 with the second if all goes according to plan 🙂 I was so young and honestly it’s my only regret in life. I learned a lot from that experience though. I can’t wait to marry my SO in a few years 🙂
