I’m the oldest and I will get married first. I’m 23 and my one brother is 21, more interested in hooking up than getting hitched. Lol. My younger brother will be 16 soon and I hope marriage isn’t really on his mind! I’ve never felt pressure from anyone about getting married.

I’m the oldest and the first to get married. My siblings are only 16 and 11 hah!
My Fiance however is the youngest and first to get married. His brothers are 8 and 6 years older than he is, and the older brother (and FMIL) doesn’t seem to be toooo thrilled about Fiance going “out of order”. Oh well!

I am the first child, and the first to get married! My next sister has been dating her boyfriend on and off for five years, but she’s 20 and in college! So she probably won’t be getting married any time soon.
Apparently her BF brought up getting married, and she LAUGHED at him!

I am going to be the first to marry out of my four siblings and I am the youngest!

I’m an only child, but Fiance is the oldest of 4 and he will be the first to get married (unless his little sister and her boyfriend suddenly decide to get engaged and marry sometime within the next 2 years, which I find unlikely).

I’m gonna vote 1st to marry. I’m the youngest out of 3. I’m late 20s and my 2 siblings are late 30s. Neither have ever married before and I highly doubt they will based on their attitudes about marriage. But I guess anythings possible.
My guy is the the oldest, he has 1 younger sibling (early 20s) so marriage isn’t on his radar in the near future.

I’m going to be the first to marry, I am 32 and my little brother is 30. I always thought he would be first as he has lived with his girlfriend for five years now, and I just met my Fiance when I was 31. But I’m first, unless he jumps for it really soon!

@mscuppycake: I am the oldest of two, my younger brother got married two years before me. In my family no one cares who gets married first as long as you are happy.

I’m the oldest of two and I’m first to get married…and the second. 🙂 (I’m divorced.)
My younger sister’s boyfriend lives overseas and he’ll be visiting over the holidays at the end of the year, so I guess it’s *possible* that they’ll do a quickie wedding before my fiance and I get married. I guess in that case, she’ll be married longer than I will be! (But I couldn’t care less about these things, as long as everyone is happy.)

Well. He proposed after their first child was born (she was 17 and he was 21). They never got married after several domestic violence issues. Then, he proposed after my nephew was conceived 10 years later. Again, they fought, got arrested, and never got married. When my nephew turned one, they got engaged and married in Vegas within 6 months. And then they got annulled, arrested, back together, and engaged and married again. So, a total of two weddings rings and 4 engagement rings. And she just had them upgrade it for their two month anni.
I wish this was all a joke.

@mscuppycake: I’m the youngest and I have an older brother who is 5 years older than me. there was no pressure either way to get married or not, but everyone knew it was on the way cos we’ve been dating for long enough. My brother is not in any stable serious relationship so no one is expecting him to get married anytime soon. And I wasn’t planning on waiting around for him to decide he’s going to get married lol!

Oldest (two younger brothers) and first to be married at 30. I think it is going to be a while wait for those two. No pressure at all, but the grandmas now vocally want great grandkids, which they will have to wait for!
DH is the youngest of two, and we got married right before his brother’s second marriage to a middle child (stereotypes are true!) who was last to get married and is now racing to be the last to have a kid. Her pressure is all internal though.
what an thought provoking question!

There are seven of us and I’ll break it down as easily as possible:
1. 30 years old sister has been married since she was 19 years old with two kids ages 8 and 3.
2. 29 year old brother who lives at home with my parents with a full time job.
3. Me – just turned 28 and got married this year.
4. 25 year old little sister who got married last year.
5. 24 year old little sister who has been engaged for two years. They plan on getting married in a year.
6. 23 year old sister who is nowhere close to getting married but she’s the one who might just randomly show up married one day.
7. 21 year old brother (almsot 22) who just finished college and has moved in with his Girlfriend.
In my culture (Hmong), siblings cannot get married in the same year. If younger sisters get married first, they have to pay the unmarried older sister to “right the wrong” *eyeroll*. Anyway, my little sister followed cultural norms so I was paid $100 when she got married which went back to her in the form of an additional $100 tacked on to her wedding gift. I have never really felt the pressure to get married but that’s just me. People in my ethnic group tend to get married very, very young though (occassionally 14 year olds are culturally married). That I was 27 is pretty ancient to them.

My half brothers are in their 50s and are married (one married twice now), and my “whole” brother is in his early 30s and married in 2008. I’m the baby by a long shot, being in my 20s, and I will be married last.
My Fiance is in his late 20s, and his sister is two years younger. She’s been living with her boyfriend for years, but they are not looking to get married now. Fiance will therefore be the first to get married.
