I got married at 18. I don't know what I would do if I had to do it all over again. A lot of times I think I would do it the same way and other times I think I would never get married. We have been married 11 and a half years.

 I got married at 30. If I had to do it again, I'd do it the same way.

A month shy of turning 25. I think I was too young. We weren't ready. We never had any really serious talks about the future or either of our expectations, wants or needs. We winged it. That was a huge mistake. In fact, we would have divorced within the first year had we not unexpectedly gotten pregnant with our daughter.

People wonder why I'm harsh and judge, and this is partially why, because I've been there. I hate to see anyone else make the same mistakes. We're still married, we work it out, but it's not been an easy or happy path.

 I voted other because I was married twice at different ages:

punching1st time was a HUGE mistake. I was 18 and while I loved him as a person I wasn't IN  LOVE with him and  married him for really emotionally confused messed up reasons that I deeply regret. We stayed together for 16 yrs until I finally divorced him and only stayed that long bc of fear, feeling guilty, feeling trapped and worried my 4 kids would hate me if I left him. (they didnt!)

weddingMy wedding to my soulmate/bff love of my life husband Todd was when I was when I was 37. That was 8 years ago and I would marry that man over again every single day if I had to. I am soooooo glad I married him. He feels like a miracle to me!

When we got married I was 21, DH was 19.

We'd been together 2.5 months.

Looking back I'm really not sure what the big rush was and I wish we'd taken our time. But so far so good, 3 years later. :)

I was 20 when I got married..actually both of us were 20.. We've been married for almost 18 years and have been together for 22 years. I'd do it again in a heart beat.

I was 28.  It was the right time. I just finished getting my MA degree and we both had decent jobs.  We never struggled financially because of it either.  It has been 20 yrs now

We got married when I was twenty one and I wouldn't change it at all.

I got married when I was 19.

I'm 28 now and still married to the same man. I do wonder if I would have done it so young if I could do over again.
