I started dating Jim at 15 (my brother had to go with us everywhere)...we dated for 2 1/2 years....Then we married (I was 17 yrs old) it has been almost 42 yrs of a great marriage. Marriage is hard work and you have to want to make it...both of you. Jim and I grew up together (Airforce helped...he joined 1 month after we were married and I went with him all over the USA and even overseas).......It has not alwys been easy, but we love each other and are now growing old together:) He is my True Love. My mom married at 17 yrs old and she and my dad have been married 60 yrs this June. My daughter married at 17 yrs old and she is celebrating 23 yrs old marriage this year...Think 17 must be our lucky number...lol

I married my husband when I was 21, we would have gotten married sooner but I really wanted to be a bit older. In the area I live in even being married at 21 is unheard of and I really didn't want to be ostracized.

I was 'married' at 17 when my parents signed off to let me marry my lover that was 3 yrs older than me. I knew him when I was 1 and lost my cherry to him when I was 13.
And we're still together, and we got a set of twins out of it.

Hello All :)

I was 30 years old when I got married. I have known my hubby since I was 20 years old. I am 38; so, almost half of my life, now, he has been a part of it.

We dated on and off for years, and in that time, we became best friends. He has been my best bud for quite a few years now. No secrets, no surprises, and we had been through a lot together when we decided to get married, which I think makes our relationship so wonderful. Not only do we love each other, but we like each other, too, which is helpful when one of us has a rough day and is cranky. ;)

My husband and I were both 18 when we got married. He's 11 months older than I am, but we got married a week before he turned 19, and 19 days after I turned 18. Our daughter was 6 months old already. We were high school sweethearts, went to Junior Prom together and everything. We were friends for nearly 2 years before we started dating, but we had only been dating about 5 months when we found out we were going to have our daughter. We kind of rushed things, as you can see, but thankfully it all worked really well for us.

We've been married for 15 years now. Our beautiful daughter will be 16 in a couple of months, and we also have 3 handsome sons, ages 12, 8, and 3. My husband really is the best man I've ever known. He's a wonderful husband and father, and I thank God every day for bringing us together. ♥

I was 14 and he was 17. We both had just had our birthdays. We met at his house when his younger sister invited me over for her 13th BD slumber party. I didn't think anything about him at the time, he was just her older brother, but that night at the teen center things changed. We danced together all night! We dated for 5 yrs. He got out of the Army and came home, we got back together, and have been married for almost 40 years. And have 2 wonderful children, 36 & 33.

I met my husband at high school when I was 12, he was 13. He was in the year above me. Our relationship through out school was on and off then when he left in year 10 we lost contact for about three years. We hooked up again when I was 19. Fell pregnant with our daughter. Got married at 21. The following year had our son.
This year my husband and I have been married for 15 years. Many people told us that the married will not last, or were too young or we are just getting married because we have a child and its the right thing to do. Sure we have had our ups and downs but our love for each other is what holds us together. My husband is my best friend, my sole mate, my lover and my rock.

I met my husband in first grade. We dated on and off when we were both 16 till a couple years later trans-state-style since we no longer lived in the same state. After we both got back from serving separate missions for our church, we met up again, got engaged a couple months later, and married close to a month after that. I was 22 and he was 21 when we married. We have been married 11.5 wonderful years and have 5 children.

I met my husband when I was 17. The first time I laid eyes on him I told my friend I'm gonna marry that boy someday. A year later we were hanging out with the same group of friends. He spotted me first & said hi. We haven't been apart since that day! He proposed on my 19th birthday & we got married when we were 20. E will be celebrating 15 years of marriage this Aug. :)

I was almost 30! (married Oct 17th, turned 30 in Nov.) We knew each other about a year before we got engaged and then had a 1 year engagement. Married 5 years b/4 kids - yikes! I was almost 35 when our daughter was born and just shy of 40 when our son was born. I would change any of it for anything. I didn't find a man anywhere near close enough to consider marriage until my husband. I think there are advantages to marrying and having children later. Of course there are disadvantages too...
We've been married over 20 years and life is oh, so good!

Met my husband when I was 28...he was 24. Got married when I was 31...yes, first marriage. Had 1st child at 38 and 2nd at 40. I had to make sure he was "the one."I was proposed to before by another guy but turned him down. He was 4 years older. I made the right choice. We waited 3 years to get married. In those 3 years, it took 1 year to plan.

We met on a blind date in January when I was 28. He was 24. He proposed six months later; and we were married less than four months after that. We knew each other less than 10 months when we got married. We have now been married for almost 10 years. What a wonderful life!

I was 16 when I met my husband, he was 20.
We got married 2days short of my 20th birthday, my hubby was23.
This year we are celebrating 17years together and 13years marriage.
You do change when/as you get older, your opinions are different/ change.
I would defentley advise my children to wait till they were older before settling down.
I know how much I've changed over the years, then since having children.
Not saying I made a mistake or anything like that but it's true what they say about how you are different as you get older.

I was 20 when I got married the first time and 4yrs later we split up and got divorced. Marriage takes work in order to be successful and you both have to be willing to put in the work. I don't think it matters the age that someone gets married, what matters is how willing both people are willing to continue to work on it.
