I’m 23. My SO is 24.   If he proposes when he says he will… we’ll be getting married at age 24 and 25 respectively.

I never thought about getting married when I was growing up. An ex-boyfriend, now friend, once said to me, “Oh, you’ll be married by the time you’re 30.” I was 19 when he said it.  The idea shocked me. I adamently denied the possibility.  When we get engaged I’ll be texting him, “So you were right…”

I’m 28.  Up until I was about 17, I always thought I’d get married when I was 30.  After 17,  I thought it would be 22 or 23.  When I broke up with my then-BF at 23, I had no idea when it would be. I was just hoping it would be before 30… but if not, I was fine with that, too. 

Our wedding date is about 5mo before my 30th b-day, so I’m gonna make it!!  LoL.  :o)

@Hbomb84:  If it’s any consolation, two of my friends from Texas got engaged at the ages of 27 and 28.    🙂

They both said that people in Texas tend to marry “young” and felt like getting engaged in their midi-late 20s was “old” compared to those around them.  I find it so interesting that “average” age to marry varies so greatly depending on which city/state you are from!

I just turned 27. I will be a month shy of my 28th birthday when I get married… And I had always thought I would be married by 24 with kids by 27… And I would have been doing all wrong if I had listened to that silly ‘internal clock’. Damn the media making me think I was ‘old’ at 25!

I’m 28 now.  I never thought about marriage when I was younger or had a timeline in mind.  To be honest, until my current SO started talking about marriage, I never really felt like I was the kind of girl any man would ever ask to marry.  My parents were married when they were 24 and 26, so now that I have marriage on my mind, I definitely feel like I’m behind, haha!

I’m 23, SO is 24. Not the oldest, but not the youngest either, and after 3 years together it just feels like the next step to take in the next couple of years. Always dreamt it would be about 27 I would like to be married by, may even be sooner than I thought!

I’m 26, and SO is 29. I always thought 27 would be the perfect age to get married (but now that my birthday is but a season away I don’t think that’s going to be realistic – not impossible, just a tad difficult haha).

I’m 25.  I thought I would get married at 25 but that’s not going to happen but I’m ok with that as long that it happens eventually.
