First time 18. Second time 42.

I advise you to please talk over every possible subject before you marry.

I was married at 19. I am still happily married almost 10 years later and it was the best decision of my life but I wouldn't recommend getting married so young to anyone else.

I married my high school sweetheart 1 month after I turned 20. We were unexpectedly pregnant 4 months later. It has been rough, but 6 years of marriage and 3 kids later, I still love him just like I did in high school. Definitely hard times, but all worth it. I would trade my husband for the world.

Got married in 1991 at 19 but I was sooo ready at 17 - we had to save $$ before doing so and the job wasn't secure enough back then. After almost 18years... we are still in love. Children are 13 and 11. Life is rough sometimes... we just can't quite at the first problem... (lost 2 childrens - lot of job layoff... but we managed it thru!)

I would do it again - without no doubts!...

I got married at 26, after we both finished graduate school; and we didn't have our baby girl until I was 34.

I was 26 and have been married for nearly 6 years. Needed time to get used to living with a boy before anyone else came along :)

I was one of those women who had decided that getting married and having kids was never going to be an option for me because of the several long-term failed relationships under my belt. Then I met my husband when I was 32, we married at 33 and I was pregnant within 2 months. It all has been very perfect. I swear it is true that when you find the right mate, you just KNOW!

I am not married and i am 32. I dont tend on getting married in the near future either. I dont think you need to be nowadays. Just because you have a baby does not mean you need to be married..

I was 18 and my husband was 22 at the time. We had already had our first daughter and she was already 10 months old and we incorperated her into the ceremony. Every at the begining frowned on how we got together because of the age difference and it was frusterating but now we have been together for five years and married for almost three now!!

I met my husband to be when I was 13 and he was 17 just as friends, started dating when I was 17. Fell pregnant and had our 1st baby when I was 19 and he proposed when I was 6 months pregnant and we said we would get married when 'the baby' was walking.

He was nearly 6 when we finally got married, when I was 24 and had a 9 month old baby girl.

Everyone's situation is completely different and only you can decide when is best!

Ive been with my husband for 16 years and married for 8 and these times have been hard but I wouldn't change a thing!!

Good luck to all who get married and have kids, whichever order you do it in!!!

The first time I got married at 20....got it right the second time at 46. I'm not saying you should wait that long...I just didn't know what I was getting in to when I was younger. Two good things did come out of the first marriage though...my two wonderful sons...now ages 24 and 26 (BTW...the youngest just got married in June and the oldest is still looking!)

after looking at the first page of answers only 1 other person was married the same age as i and that was 32.but he was my middle school love then we parted ways to lead separate lives and had long term others in our lives i to thought it would never happen for me but after a ruff day at work and stopping by the local bar and seeing the bartender serve me a beer after that it has been great. we are married 7 years been together forever and are on our second child i recomend waiting for that someone special no matter how long it takes sometimes!!
