    No, 25 is perfectly okay. You have a pretty good understanding of who you are by then. : (110 votes)

    I was 24 when married. It was right for my partner and I. Nothing more and nothing less. People will have opinions and thoughts on it. I certainly love to have opinions and thoughts as well. In the end, it doesn’t bother me because I am secure in it. 

    Every individual and every relationship is going to be different. That stranger was pretty bold and certainly keen to give unsolicited advice. However, don’t pay them mind unless you feel there may be something that holds truth to yourself. In that case, it is time to examine why what they said may be affecting you deeper.

    yourhandinmine :  Absolutely NOT too young. I answered the poll as saying it really depends on the couple and their maturity. 

    I am getting married this year and I am 28. I got engaged when I was 24 (looong engagement haha). 

    I can admit if we had been married at 24 or 25 we would have been fine. I’m a little more mature now than I was then but honestly not much has changed.

    I think what should matter more than your age is how comfortable you are together, the love you feel for each other and all of that emotional security you have together… and then logistically I think its important to consider things like finances, where you live, your family dynamic compared to his… but in the end, there is no perfect age. =)

    musicluvr325 :  I understand. I guess im looking more at myself as you make that statement. I am going to be 27 and the things that I wanted at 20 are the same things I want now. 

    The difference is that now I won’t settle for less than what I want rather than having done so in the past. 

     

    However I do want to clarify that I understand your POV.

    khopenyc :  Oh, I get it. I think also in the back of my head I still wanted those things, but I settled. I told myself I was okay with what I got rather then going for more of what I wanted (abusive upbringing will do that). I’m glad some people don’t have to deal with those kinds of things.

    nycsa :  yes, I’m well aware. Everyone is different and if you don’t want to get married that young then you definitely shouldn’t! There are of course many reasons to not get married young. I was just saying that in general people people will waste their time dating people they know they won’t end up with and going out partying. I think that it makes for more broken hearts and confusion along the way.  I’m actually still in school and will be in school for another five years. Hasnt stopped me from getting married! In my opinion, it is selfish. But I also have conservative values, so I see where others may not see it as selfish. I did put a little “to each his own.”

    25 is nothing. My mom had me when she was 25. I’m 20 and my fiance is 21 and we are getting married in less than 2 weeks. Every relationship is different and when its right its right.

    I don’t think it’s too young if you know what you want and you’re with the person you want to be with.  I wish I had met my husband in my early 20’s and gotten married sooner sometimes so I could have had that much more time with him.  My mom was 19 when she married my dad (he was 24 at the time) and they are the wisest people I know and after more than 50 years together, they are still very happy and in love. I think if you are lucky enough to meet someone that you want to be with, whatever age you may be, go for it!  Only you can know if it right for you.

    Sure hope not. I was 24 and he was 23. LOL 

     

    Age is really a number. Maturity is much more important. I’ve met 19 year olds that were more mature than some 50 year olds I work with.
