    How old are/were you when you are married? 24 and 27.

    Does age matter? In my experience (both personal and people I know) yes, it matters a great deal.

  • How old are you? 23
    FI/BF/H? 24
    How old are/were you when you are married? I'll still be 23, he'll be 25.

    Does age matter? To an extent yes. When I see little Teeny Babies getting married it makes me nervous. My parents were 20 and 21 and they're still together but I've grown up a lot even in the last few years. I guess it's just a personal call.
  • How old are you? 22 until July :)
    FI/BF/H? 23
    How old are/were you when you are married? I'd like to, and hopefully, probably? will be 23

    Does age matter? Yes. We almost got married at 20, I'm so glad we did not. Age and maturity together matter though really. I mean, I was mature for a 20 year old but I'm more mature now.


    Wait, did that all sound immature?

    FI/BF/H? 26
    How old are/were you when you are married? we'll be 25 and 28

    Does age matter? Age, no.  I think it has more to do with maturity level.

  • How old are you? 23

    FI/BF/H? 29

    How old are/were you when you are married? I'll be on the cusp of 24 and FI will be 29.

    Does age matter? Depends on where you are in life. When we met, I was 19 and had just started college and FI was 25 and just got out of the army. We were on the same page maturity wise. I think we caught up with each other at the right time.

    Oh, and yeah. I think 16 is the magic number is my state. You have to have parental consent. CRAZY.

    How old are/were you when you are married? see above
    Does age matter? sometimes, it depends on the people and the relationship
  • How old are you? 29

    FI/BF/H? He's 29

    How old are/were you when you are married? I'll be 29, he'll be 30

    Does age matter? In some cases yes.  If it's a large gap in age I think it makes it a little bit harder.  Personally I like that we get to experience things together.  I wouldn't want to be with someone that uses the "I've already been there" or "That sounds like fun, I did that 20 yrs ago" lines.  I have a good friend who's husband is many yrs older and we have to do stuff early with them or he'll fall asleep.  She hates it, but he's old...he needs cat naps.

  • How old are you?  45 (in 5 weeks)
    FI/BF/H?  60
    How old are/were you when you are married?  44
    Does age matter? 
    There is no simple answer to this question. It can matter a lot, it can matter very little. I think (just for example) a 25 year old bride might be in a very different place in the things she likes to do, goals, etc. then a 40 year old groom.

    On the other hand, the age difference between my husband and I is something I rarely think about-we are both in that hazy "over 40" group and have have both been adults in the world for many years. I think age differences in the post 40 crowd matter less generally than in the pre-40 crowd for many reasons.

    So, does age matter? Yes it does, but that does not mean that people with an age difference should not be together.

    Depends on your state. Most are age 16 minimum for girls (with parental consent) and age 18 for guys. Laws do vary though.

    Does age matter? I agree with "maturity matters"

  • How old are you? 26
    FI/BF/H? 24 today!
    How old are/were you when you are married? I will be 27, FI will still be 24
     
    Does age matter? I agree with a lot of you about maturity level being the important thing. FI being younger weirded me out at first because he's younger than my "baby" brother. It doesn't matter anymore but FI still likes to tease me about being "old"
  • How old are you? 22
    FI/BF/H? 22!
    How old are/were you when you are married? 22 and 22
     
    Does age matter? Definitely to a certain extent.
  • How old are you? 37
    FI/BF/H? 36
    How old are/were you when you are married? 37 for both of us

    Does age matter? For us? No. But my best friend is 38 and dating a guy that is 60. They both love each other, but she wants to get married, and he doesn't because he feels he is "too old for that crap" (he is 3x divorced, she was divorced once). At some point, this will be the thing that will probably break them up. She has also told me that she worries alot that he will probably be the first to die because he is so much older, and she will have to spend the rest of her life without him. :(

  • Me: 25

    We will be these ages when we get married.

    I think age does matter to some extent. If one of you is 50 and you're marrying a 20 year old who went to school with your kids, that's not ok.... but if you're 10 or 15 years apart at 50, I don't think it matters at all.
  • How old are you? 30

    How old are/were you when you are married? same

    Does age matter?  i think maturity and experience matter.  i would never want to feel like i got married without having "been there done that" in regards to dating.  in regards to our age difference, it's so minor we don't feel it... unless he's pointing out how young i am because i haven't seen one of his bad '80's movies... i only watch the good ones!  i have a friend who has a 30 year age difference with her husband, but as long as their happy.

    Does age matter? As far as age differences go, yes, I think it does matter if you're in different stages of life. We have a five-year age difference, but we met when we were both professionals already (I was 24, he was 29). If we'd met a couple of years before when I'd been in college and he'd been working already, I think it would have made things more difficult. It also sort of creeps me out when I see a high school girl with a college guy, but it doesn't to see a college freshman with a college senior.  It could be the same age difference, technically, but the stage in life difference is significant. That's why I think the older you get, the less it matters.

    As far as age to get married goes-- I guess it depends on the couple. I know I dated a guy seriously in college and thought I was ready to marry him, and boy, am I glad we didn't get married! I changed a lot in my 20s.

    Does age matter?  Yes, to a certain degree.  I know that I never would have been ready for marriage/home ownership in my 20's.

    How old are/were you when you are married? 23 and 27 respectively.

    Does age matter?
     IMO, age doesn't matter, maturity level does. However, those can often go hand in hand. I truthfully thought I would be in my thirties before I would get married. The right guy changed my mind...
