I’ll be getting my BA in May, so I was a college senior when I got married. I am not planning on going to grad school because there’s really no need–I don’t want to teach, and I can secure a writing or editing position with a BA and my experience.

I was 23 and Darling Husband was 24.  We both have B.S. degrees in engineering and had been out of school for 1-1.5 years.

I think what the article was seeing is that many people decide not to get married until they are done getting their education (no matter how much education that might be).  So people who don’t go to college often get married at 18-19, people who just get a Bachelors often get married at 22-24 and people who get graduate degrees often get married when they finish those.  But I feel like many of them (obviously not all) are only waiting longer because they are still in school.

@Mrs Grape: Not to threadjack, but what did you study? I was communications and do writing now.

32; BA and JD.  Yay for 30-something brides.

I want to spend more money on my wedding so working as an atty for several years factors in as well

I will be 24 and he will be 29.  I am looking to have a future in medical coding (I have to work for three years before I can take a certification test) and J is in the process of going to plumbing school and has about 3 more years until he take his license test. =)

When we got married, I was 24; my husband was 22 (23 a week later).  He is currently finishing his MS in Engineering (last semester!), and then I hope to go back to get my MLS (Library Sciences).  We got married young-ish, I think, but grad degrees were in our plans regardless.
