@MuchGreater: My mother was married and had two children. (I was the second and I was a year old) I’m 28, will be married in September and not sure when we want to start our family…

She and my dad married at 19.

Nope my mum didn’t get married until she was 36 and had me at 37. She travelled and studied (3 degrees) and had lots of boyfriends but didn’t settle until her late 30s. Interestingly she left my dad 18months later, go figure. 

I met Darling Husband 10 years ago, when I was 18, we got married in November and will probably have children in a few years. Having said that I have a career, and 2 degrees (almost finish my Masters on the 10th June) have travelled, so I dont feel like i have missed out, (much)

My mom was 22 with her first marriage and 27 with her second. I’m 21 and will be married at 22.

my mom was 19 and had me at 21. i think its because her generation wasnt so college focused and our generation is pushed towards getting through college first.

Interesting thread! My mom was 3 years married and with a newborn son at my current age. Weird.

@littlemissmango: Yeah, my parents had been married almost TEN YEARS with two kids at my age. Wow. That puts things into perspective.

yup. my parents married young: 20 and 23 and had 2 kids by the time they were my age [29 and still waiting]. but some of my friends are married with 2 kids now so either way, i’m seemingly behind.

Generally our generation get married later in life (of course that will depend on where you live but still).

My mom and dad were married at 24-25 yo and had me when my mom was 25 or something. When I was 25 I was no where close to being ready to do that. And I’m 28 now and while I’m a waiting bee whose aspiration is to get married I don’t really feel that much social pressure to get married right now.

My mom had married, popped me out a few years later, divorced hubby #1 six months later, and was 7 months away from marriage to hubby #2. I was a little over 2 when she married my step-dad.

Wow.

I am almost 23.  My mother had already been married and divorced by my age.  She married right out of high school and has ALWAYS told me what a mistake that was for her!  She was meeting my dad around the age I am now.

My grandmother on the other hand…by age 23 was married and had given birth to 4 children, one of whom died as an infant.

That is difficult for me to grasp!

My mom was engaged at my age but they broke off the engagement and she went on to marry my dad at 22.

Haha not even close. My mom got married when she was 36 and had me at 37 (Then had my two younger siblings as well) ..I’m 24 now, so no pressure! lol
