    I would consider someone a young bride/couple if they’re not already “established”.  So, for me that would be have a steady job, know how to live on your own, etc.  Somebody who’s 22 but just graduated college “feels” younger to me than somebody who’s 20 but has moved out and has been working for a year or two.

    I consider college-aged (22 and under) to be young. I feel like it depends on where you live. I’m from the north and most people here don’t get married until they’re at least 25, while in the south, it’s more common to get married at a young age.

    I dont think you’re young to be married. I’m 21 and I’ll be 22 when we get married and I don’t think that’s young either lol I’m a fan of “young” marriages I guess you could say 🙂

    I will be a month shy of 22 and my boyfriend will just have turned 25 two weeks prior… I consider us a “young bride/groom” couple.. but not TOO young.

    I honestly think the generation of young marriage is returning. I have heard plenty of comments throughout the website claiming everyone needs to wait til after college, and though I respect everyones opinions, ours differ.

    For us, I will be in the middle of school still, and my FH will be working. He does roofing for a union company which is all based on experience and school. He may get a general associates or Buis. Mang. degree, or he may continue roofing. He comes from a military and union construction working family where they worked hard all their lives to make good money. He 150 percent supports my wishes of going to college and to get a few different specialties in the medical field. He would be so disappointed in me if I didn’t finish out college the way I have goals too. So we have no worries that marriage is going to ruin this. We are living together already and financially stable, and we will be throughout my entire college. We also want to build a strong marriage for a few-6 years before we have kids. We want to have our solid careers for kids and a family by all means.

    I just am dumbfounded by these married couples who want to start TTC on their honeymoons or shortly after… don’t you want to enjoy being newly weds?? don’t you want to make sure you’re in a stable marriage? I hear all about how the first year is the hardest and then i hear the first 5-7 years is the hardest… If marriage is such a big desicion and life changing event then how can you imagine adding KIDS to the mix so shortly there-after.

     

    Just my opinions!

    Honestly under 18. I believe an adult has every right to get married. I have friends who would never get married before their 30’s. They think I’m nuts especially when I’m 20 and FH is 29. We’ll be 21 and 30 on our big day.

    Anything under 30. I see teen brides and think “Why?” 

    Eh, not my concern either way.

    I would consider under 25 to be young and I would consider stereotypically college aged (under 22) to be REALLY young. Honestly, there was never the big post-college wedding surge in my circle. There were a few stragglers that married the summer after college, but most people I knew went to grad school and/or lived together (at least at my college it wasn’t possible to live together during college itself) before the slew of weddings started happening when people were in their mid-20s.

    I’m 27 and we’re seriously contemplating marriage within the next year and even 28 feels young to me. I always assumed I would get married at 30+ mostly because in my family, most of the people who got married pre-30 got divorced and all the people who got married post-30 stayed married.

    I think under 21 is young… I’ll be 26 when I get married and my Fiance wil be 30. I asked him to wait until I had graduated college and spent at least a year working in the “real world”. After the wedding we’re planning on moving to the US so I can get my Masters Degree. 🙂

    I consider under 22 a young bride. This doesn’t necessarily mean too young. I really don’t think age has anything to do with it. I am 23 and recently one girl I work with in particular tells me all the time that I am too young to get married because I am too young to know what I want. She says it in a joking way, but way too often for her to not mean it.

    @gpsp2B:  Fiance and I will start TTC the same month as our wedding. We both believe that getting married shouldn’t be a life changing event. It will only change our legal relationship and that is it. We already share a life together and have been for a year and a half. We agreed that we wanted to be 100% sure we were going to go the distance before getting married, so we moved in together and have built a life together. Now I just want that paper work before we add to our family 🙂
