    I think it’s definitely an area-specific thing. Where I live and especially in my religion (LDS), 18 is young, 19 is pretty young but not unheard of, 20-21 is more typical. I’m 19 and haven’t had a single comment on my age. It’s just the norm.

    I think under 23 is young. But where I live the average age to get married is 19-24. If your older then 23, 24 and not married… people talk and you better have some good excuse why you haven’t tied the knot.

    19 and younger is too young, unless they are planning on a long engagement and the wedding is a few years away.

    22 and under is young to me. But young also doesn’t mean bad to me, it just depends on the people involved.

    I am 27, will be 28 when we get married.

    I got engaged at 21 and I will be married at 23. Fiance got engaged at 26 and will get married at 28. I don’t think I’m a “young” bride but to me, age doesn’t mean a damn thing. It’s all about maturity.

    24 or under.  I live in Utah, so I see all the 20 year old brides too.  Usually they get suspiscious if you are 25 and not married here.

    16-23, but that’s not a judgement. i have several friends who were married in that age group and are still married.  this was 26-28 years ago.

    I’d consider about 23 to be a young bride but I have had friends get married at 22 and 23.  I think the norm in my area is about 25-27 to be married but it’s not abnormal at all to be in your early 30s here.
