I am 23 and my Fiance is the same age. We will be 25, however when we get married. I definitely do not feel that we are too young to get married. He asked me after only 2 months of dating (however we never considered it an official engagement, we just knew we would be one day). After 2 and a half years of dating he officially asked me. I do, on the other hand, feel pretty young in “the ways of the world”. I am concerned about the “real world” aspect of having to figure out finances, responsibilities, and growing up all together. I am not overly worried though because there is no one else I would rather figure things out with than my Fiance.
Nowadays everyone gets married so much later in life, and I really don’t think age has anything to do with how successful the marriage will be. When you know, you know. Congrats to all!

I always knew I wanted to get married at a younger age, I always thought 21/22 would be a perfect age for me and now the official plan is to be married when we are just barely 23, so I’m actually a little late lol. I think if you find the r,ight guy why wait until your 30? By the time the wedding rolls around Fiance and I will have been together for almost 7 years, even though we’ll still be considered young, its hard to find that as negative since we have been together for so long, and have changed so much during those 7 years.

I will have just turned 21 when I get married.
It doesn’t bother me what people think, I love my Fiance and know we will be together for as long as possible.

I’m 20 (I’ll turn 21 two weeks after the wedding) and Fiance is 22. We’ve been engaged for something like 14 months, so at first I was afriad of telling people my age. Now I’ve realized how silly that is and obviously I don’t think I’m too young so what do I care what anyone else thinks?

We’re both 21 and will both be 22 (he’ll be a month away from 23) when we get married. We got in engaged in February. My family has been waiting around for us to get married since we got together. My own grandfather within seconds of meeting him told him to talk to my father. (He noticed how Fiance was looking at me..”marrying eyes”)
His family likes me. We haven’t really gotten many congratulations from them, but they are far away. They don’t dislike it. His grandmother is the most excited and can’t wait for great-grandkids….

We known each other for 10 years and have been dating for almost 7 (we were 14). He proposed on our 5th anniversary when we were 19 and are getting married next summer when we will be 22 (:
I don’t feel like a young bride at all, we are both very mature, been living together for over 2 years in a different city from our families (we were both in University, he just graduated). Both of our families were very supportive, it was a long time coming, so when we did get engaged they were saying finally rather than being surprised haha.
However, I see a lot of people who I went to high school with meeting guys and getting engaged and married all within their first year of MEETING the guy, which in my opinion is ridiculous.

I was 23 and DH was 25 when we got married. I don’t think that you should worry about it too much. Like others have said… when you’re ready, you’re ready.

@kateisstoned: I sometimes wonder if we are too young (he was 24 in march and i am 24 on monday) but then i think why should it matter if we date for another few years so we are at a more socially acceptable age to wed? We were going to have an 18 month engagment but after discussions we are getting married this summer very spur of the moment so i will be only just 24
A few friends of mine are/have been married and they did it young and it didnt work so well so i think that is why i feel more anxious (one was 19 when she got married, she cheated and ended it 2 months later and the other married at age 22 and is now going through a rough patch that could end in divorce =/)

We will both be 23. I have never had any doubts or felt to young. 6/7 of the girls I attended middle school with will be married by the end of this year and quite a few of my college friends are engaged or married as well. I don’t consider 23 too young to get married. Never even thought about it until I saw people discussing it on this site. I don’t need more life experience. I want to experience life with Fiance by my side.

I’m 20 and FH is 21. We’ve never felt too young and no one has ever mentioned us being too young. But it’s pretty common here to get married between 21-22. I personally feel 24+ is in the older age of getting married. We’ll be done with college by the time we’re married and have a house and those were the important things to us. We went to high school together, my parents love him, and we have the same values/beliefs and that was very important to me to know that he was the one.

We will both be 22 when we get married next year. We’re the first out of all our friends to get married, but our family and friends have been so supportive. When we got engaged, everyone said that they had expetced us to get married young. We’ve known each other since we were 14, dated briefly when we were 15, and got back together when we were 17.
22 is young, i know, but I feel that we are so much more mature than most people our age. We both have finished uni, are in full time work with a steady income, have lived together for the past two years and are well on our way to buying our first house hopefully in the next year (fingers crossed)
