How old were you when you got married?

If you had it to do over again, would you marry sooner or later?

I was 30 when I got married. 

I think that was the perfect age!  I was able to travel, go out with friends, get started with my job before moving on to this next phase which I love.

I was 20 as was DH. It was the perfect time for us and I'd do it all again. We just celebrated 18 years of marriage in December.

Congrats on 18yrs together!  Did you grow up in the same town and go to high school together?

Did you go to high school or college together?  How long did you wait until you started having kids?

That's how I felt - I didn't want to get married before 30.  I met my husband when I was 26 and we started dating when I was 27 or 28.  We had our 1st baby 2 yrs after getting married.

Pretty much...we met when we were 13 and started dating when we were 16. We will celebrate 23 years together in September.

I was 18. I would definitely have waited longer. Not because I'm not happy in my marriage but because if I knew then what I knew now....life would be much different.

Same here. Met my husband at 26. I don't have that fear as to whether or not I can take care of myself, because I have. I dont' have issues being alone, because I've lived alone. I think there is a confidence that comes along to being on your own first. Also, once I got married, I was ready to be married. I wasn't wishing I was out with my girlfriends instead of being home.
