Marriage age poll

Ok, so I stole this from my month board, which was stolen from SB...  since the board is so quiet today I thought this might be interesting:

At what age did you want to get married?
What age were you or will you be when you get married?
Additional thoughts/comments?
Married 5.6.11

    I'll start of by saying that as of right now FI & I are the oldest on my month board.

    At what age did you want to get married?  I thought I wanted to be married by the time I hit 30.
    What age were you or will you be when you get married?  I'll be 32, FI will be 34
    Additional thoughts/comments?
    Personally I'm happy that I didn't get married in my 20's, I'm a completely different person now than I was back then and in no way would have been ready for marriage.

    I figured about 25 would be good....go to school, have a decent job, etc...
    What age were you or will you be when you get married?
    I was 30, DH 31

    Oh goodness!! I am so happy I did not get married to my ex-FI I was with when I was 25! But I will say that I think even though I went through a lot of sh!t back then....I think it makes me appreciate my DH much more than had we meet when we were younger, and to be honest I think neither of us would have appreciated our relationship as much if we had not gone through the horrible ones we were in while in our early twenties. But I also think that each couple is different and some can handle getting married younger.

    I did actually get married at 24 and it was absolutely not the right decision for me, I didn't know myself well enough to know what I needed/wanted in a partner and ended up just marrying the guy I was with through college, because that's just what you do...I never realized how bad he was for me (and vice-versa) and how great a relationship could actually be until I was with DH.

    I never really thought too much about when I wanted to get married. Probably sometime in my 20's though. I'll be 24 when we get married and my fiance will be 29.

    Thought I'd get married: later than 30. I never really thought I'd get married.  I'm not the girl who has thought about her wedding since she was 4.

    Will get married:  I'll be 27, FI will be 29.

    I don't really have any additional thoughts, haha.  I think it all worked out for us - we didn't even get engaged until we were both fully done with our education and FI was established in a well paying job (he has a career that pays well, I don't).  So far so good!

    Basically, mid to late twenties, or whenever I found the right person.

    What age were you or will you be when you get married?
    I am 23 now, and I will be 24 when I get married.

    Additional thoughts/comments?
    Sometimes I do worry that I am too young to know if I'm ready for marriage. Yet, I feel that my fiance is the right person for me, and I for him. But I guess you can't know for sure. People change, and their goals can become incompatible. For example, you may both think you don't want to have kids, and then one person decides later on that they do.

    Additional thoughts/comments? I think the best thing that happened to me was working in a career where I moved around every two to three years (in a different career now)... because all the relationships I was in that time of moving around... didn't last.  I look back and realize how wrong those relationships were for me.  I know myself so much better now and I also know how to handle relationships, conflict, etc so much better that will help with a successful marriage now!

    25 - So I'd be mature enough!

    This Time:Me 40 & Darling 33
    Additional thoughts/comments?
    ROFL  - it doesn't matter how "mature" you think you are - the first time around will throw you for a loop if your expectations are not grounded in reality!!!  (Having a partner that wants to be married also helps!)

    Thankfully time has taught me alot of paitence & the value of accepting another person without trying to change them.

    When I was in my 20s I never thought I'd get married! Before FI I only had one serious relationship and a handful of casual ones so I figured I wasn't going to get married.
    I'll be 30 when we get married and he'll be 35.

    I would not have been mature enough at a younger age to really appreciate marriage and all that comes with it.

    Initially you can make a plan when you want to get married, but you never know who and what life will bring you. I think that there is no perfect time but the right time to get married. I wanted to be married by 25 for the year of the milestone's  I guess...

    I never planned or dreamed of getting married when I was growing up.  But I always hoped I would find a life partner.  Now that we have been together nearly 13 years - yep, that long.  We finally decided to make it legal.  I am 39, FI is 38.  We met bartending and now have careers, have been together through the loss of a parent, and buying a house, so we think this will be a one time deal.  : )  FI proposed at the finish line of a half marathon and now we joke that that was just the beginning.

    That was me too; I was not marriage material in my 20's.  I had a few long term relationships at the time but they were definitely not healthy ones and I'm really glad they didn't end up in marriage simply from the time invested which seems to have caught some of my friends who married long time girlfriends and ended up divorcing.

    Fast forward to 33 and I meet FI and then suddenly it all makes sense lol.  We'll be married when I'm 35 and she's 26.  She's getting married a few years ahead of when she pictured it happening since she wanted to finish med school and residency before she even thought about that kind of relationship but she's since adjusted that plan. :-)

    When I was growing up I though I'd be married by 21 (just like my parents).
    I did marry for the first time around that age and it didn't last long. It's taken me 9 yrs to finally meet Mr. Right, he married his HS sweetheart at 19 and it didn't work out either. This is the 2nd marriage for both, I'll be 33 and he'll be 44.

    I don't have any regets, If it hadn't been for the frogs I kissed I would've never found my prince :-) (Sounds so corny, but true!)

    Comments: In our case the older we became the better we became to be in a relationship. We were both happily single and enjoying life before we met each other, that has been the key to our success.

    I thought I wouldn't be married until I was in my late 30s or early 40s after I had traveled and done mission work. I'm 27 and my FI is 31.

    No regrets but I wish I had more sex before I settled down to have had more experience. I've only had 2 partners ever and FI has had like 20 lol. Sorry tmi.
