When I was younger I thought 28 was the perfect age bc I would be done with grad school, settled into a career, enjoy the married life for a couple of years before TTC around 30. I wasn’t far off in getting married at 29!

Hmmm I never really thought about it but I guess I figured 25-30 and I will be 29 exactly on that day.

I thought I’d be in my 30s. a psychic told my mom I’d be 32.

I was 26 when we got married.

got: 24

But if I had gotten married at 21 to the guy I was with at the time, I am 150% certain it would have ended in divorce and the man I will marry is billions of times better to,for,with me.

I’m kind of reversed. I always thought I would get married around the age of 25 or 26, at the earliest. As I continued to date my fiance, it became readily apparent that he was an incredible spouse and person. After we had dated for 7 years, and gone through a lot together, I really felt that I wanted to make sure that if something ever happened to one of us, there was no question of our status as a couple. So, I’m getting married EARLIER than I had ever planned at the age of 23.

Wanted 27-28

Getting married at 26 (1 month shy of 27) 

Thats the timeline ever since my teens and with no bfs lols

Once into a relationship i realized that by 3 years of being with someone and living with that person at least a year is more than sufficient to know if you want to spend the rest of your life with that person…  Not necesarily be engaged by 3 years but know for sure i and also my partner wants to marry me down the road.. my Fiance knew of my thoughts and he propose to me at 1 year and 8 months and been living together for 10 months.. :)) he was a little ahead on the timeline but i am not complaining :))))) we will be married two days before our 3 years anniversary :))

When I was younger I thought I’d get married around 25. I will be getting married just a few months after turning 22. I don’t think I was too far off!

Not sure about I thought wedding wise, but I thought id  have a baby by 27, And that id get married sometime before that. Well I’m getting married at 27 so 28 is more likely for babies…
