Did you marry young?

I got married at 26, I don't think that is young.
By Michelle Gerdes

I did something rare among my peers: I married young. I tied the knot with my husband, Tim, when I was just 22 and he was 26.

A few months after that first great day we spent together we were engaged. The following year we moved into a basement apartment together just off campus and we got married a couple of years later. I vividly remember telling friends and family about our engagement and the “Yeah, right” looks we got in return. Lots of raised eyebrows and half smirks.

  • Met Hubby at  21,  He was 24......... married him when I was 23, he was 26...

    I am now 40... he will be 43 about 4 months.

    This coming March will be 19 years together... and April will be 17+ years married.

    I didn't think we were that young at the time... but looking back.... yeah.... we were pretty young. We have spent nearly half our lives together.
