    I thought I would have the dream life. finish college and find me mr. Right and be marired before I turn 30 and have a kid by 30. Well reality hit me hard and I just got engaged and will not be married until I am 32. I was really hard on myself for not meeting those goals but I look at it now as its part of life.

    Growing up, I had always imagined I would get married at 27. I dont know why.

    I got married at 23….I would’ve never expected that!

    I’m not married yet, so hopefully it’s okay that I’m answering this 🙂 I envisioned getting married no earlier than 30, if ever at all. I never thought about marriage as a child, and in middle/high school I was convinced love was for idiots and it would only bring me pain (I was a child of divorce). I had sworn off relationships, and then I met my Fiance and as our friendship and then relationship developed I realized that there might be something valuable about getting married and having a family.

    So rather than 30, I’ll be just a few months shy of my 26th birthday.

    I was sure I’d be in my early 30s, I got married much earlier than I thought I would (26).

    My sister had the magic age of 27 but now she is 30 and ready.  You never know.  Life is so different than we “think” it should be, or imagine it!  I never really had an age, I never thought I would get married because my mother has been married 4 times and it tramatized me 🙂

    I thought I would follow in my mom’s footsteps and be married by the time I was 20.  (Actually she was married, had one kid, and was expecting me by the time she was 20).

    That absolutely didn’t pan out–thank God for small blessings!  Looking back, I honestly don’t think I would have been mature enough at the age of 20.  I ended up meeting Mr. Right when I was 24 and turned 25 before we were married.  He was also older than I “planned” for him to be.  He’s only 4 years older than I am so it’s not a big deal, but when I was younger that seemed like a huge gap!

    I didn’t think I’d get married until my 30s, but I ended up getting married at 25

    @PitBulLover: I always imagined 27 for some reason, as well!  I have no idea where that number came from – but I’m actually getting married two weeks after I turn 28.

    Growing up, I always figured I’d find Mr. Right in college and get married shortly after graduating (age 22-24 basically).

    Darling Husband and I met in college and married when I was 23 and he was 24.  So pretty much dead on for what I had always thought.

    Growing up I always thought that I would be married by 25. Uhhtt totally wrong, I was married at 31. Looking back at that age, I am so glad that it happened when it did.  Not that I was immature, but there were a few things that I wanted to accomplish first and some growing that needed to happen.

    I thought I had it ALLLLLLL figured out. I wanted to marry right after college to my h.s. sweet heart. In fact, I wanted to be engaged after h.s and then be engaged throughout college years. However, I did not get engaged and /or married till I turned 29.

    Life. It has a way of working out in a way you least expect it to. (FYI, I am REALLY GLAD I did NOT marry my h.s.s.)

    I thought I would never get married haha. Really never! Unless I was like 40+ and had already traveled the world and done everything I ever wanted to do. I’m now 24 and getting married in 3 months. Everyone was in shock but I wouldn’t change a thing. I found the elusive “one” haha
