    I’m the same as mrsbee; I always expected to get married around 30 and have kids soon after. Getting married at 26 is not what I thought would happen!

    I will have just turned 36 by the time I get married. I am so truly blessed that I met my fiance and we both had the experience, knowledge, and maturity to know what it takes to make a great relationship. However, I can’t help to feel a little cheated in a sense because now we are rushed to start having children right away. I really wanted more time to just enjoy each other after the marriage. (FYI before our wedding date of 9/09 we will have been dating 21 months). Its very disheartening when your doctor tells you that you need to start right away because your eggs may be "past freshness & stale".

    In my nieve younger years, I thought I’d be settled down, married and on the verge of kids by 24. LoL. I’ll be 27 (going on 28)…not too too far off.

    When I was a wee whippersnapper, I too thought I’d be married with kids by 24. We’ll be 25 & 26 when we get married, which isn’t too far off, but the only reason we’re so close to "schedule" is because we’ve been dating since we were 16.

    There should be an option for "never"- before I met my husband I never thought I’d get married at all.

    I think my parents had my whole life planned for me before I was born.  Grow up.  Go to school.  Graduate high school.  Graduate college.  Get married to a rich man.  Make lots of babies.  I always went with it, ok, married at 23 or 24.  I was on track too, rich man and all.  Good thing I opened my eyes and realized it wasn’t what I wanted.  Now I’ll be getting married at 26, and I couldn’t imagine it any other way!!

    When I was a little lilmisssha, I thought I would get married at 23.  When I turned 23, I knew I wasn’t ready and 25 seemed like a good age.  At 25, I knew that I was getting there but still didn’t know that I was ready to get married.  By the time I was 27, I knew I wanted to get married.  I was just a matter of getting engaged…lol

    Because both of my sisters were, I thought I’d be married by 21 or 22.  HA!  Like I knew anything "back then".  I am so glad that I experienced the world, cultures, new cities, etc.  – something they haven’t done (which is just fine with them, though!).  28/29 is good for me…and even sometimes now I think that is a little young!

    When I was in elementary school and thought I had my whole life planned out by the age of nine and a half–I thought I would be married by the age of 25 and start having kids at 27 with two sets of twins! Now, I will be married when I’m 26 but we don’t plan on having any children until a few years into our marriage and there is no way I could handle giving birth to two sets of twins (knock on wood!).

    I don’t think I ever had a planned age… I knew I wanted to get married- but no clue when. I do remember that one of my best friend’s growing up had her life all planned out with dates and timelines. She was soooo obsessed with it that up until the wedding I wondered if she married her husband because he was "the one" or becuase it fit into her "schedule." Its been a few years, and I think she was luckily enough to find "the one on schedule"

    This post also makes me think of a thing we’d do in elementary school— man, the details escape me. But you’d list out colors and number of bridesmaids, potential husbands, number of children, and somehow you would get a number and count around all the options. As the things got eliminated you’d be left with just what your wedding would be like….

    So strange– but I remember having a fascination with it… though it never really stuck with me… Anyone else remember this?

    I always thought I’d be married by the time I was 21 or 22… based on my family, I couldn’t believe I would make it to 23. Then I got older and realized there is no rush. I’ll be 28 when I am married.

    When I was younger, I never dreamt about my wedding, but I always "knew" what age I’d be getting married…28.  Not sure how I ever came up with the number, but hey, it’s coming true!  I’m actually getting married the week before my 29th birthday.  LOL, just in time.
