I am not married or engaged yet but I am in a committed relationship of over 3 & half years.. He is probably the "one" but .. I do not plan on getting married until I finish college and settling down... probably when I'm 25 years old.. How about you? When did you get married at? Any children?

I was 18 when I first got married, 21 when I had my first child. Divorced when I was 27 with 2 children. I strongly recommend you wait. If I had it all to do over again, I would like to say I would do things differently but I do love my 2boys more than life itself. Divorce can destroy a persons life. So be sure what you have is what you want forever. Someone you will still love when they are all wrinkled and grey and no longer have the spunk they use to have. GOOD LUCK !!

Thanks for sharing. I am sorry about your divorce, did you ever remarry? I am not going to rush into marriage because it is a big deal for me, I am going to take my time and the one who I marry, I want them to grow old with me despite all the ups and downs.

No I did not get remarried. Too scary, I am engaged to, to a man who I have been with for 3 years but really afraid to take that step again it was so tragic in my life the first time. We are happy we live together and we have both been divorced so the marriage thing is really scarry for both of us. We were actually high school sweethearts and reunited after he moved back to this area after his divorce of an 18 year marriage.

I got married when I was 22, my husband 24. Our anniversary is this Sunday. I think the best thing for anyone to do is first finish college, and get things in order, save, and things will go a lot smoother. My husband and I are very happy, but we are also still living with his parents. We need money to move out, and I need a job but we don't really have either. We can pay our bills, but that's about it. We're doing better at saving. So do finish college, and start to save as much as you can before you get married. Keep the wedding small, we did, only $1500 in total spent.

Thanks for sharing :) Happy early Anniversary to you too! I have another two years of college and I am currently starting to save money, trying to find a part-time job plus keep up with full-time college. I am probably going to have a small wedding but not yet, next few years hopefully. Good luck with saving money and hopefully you guys can move out when the time comes!

I got married last october. At that time, I was 21. And my husband was 24. Now, I'm 22 and he's 25. We were both students. Since then, he has graduated and I have a year left. It was a stressful period, but we got through it and we absolutely do not regret doing it then for a minute.

I got married at 27 years old. We're steady for 3 years to be exact because our wedding day was our 3rd anniversary then. I gave birth at 30yrs old. It was a plan that's why it takes 3 years to have a baby. We would still like to enjoy together as being husband and wife. At present, we would like another baby hopefully this year. Don't take yourself in a rush in getting married because you're worrying about your age. It is much better to choose the best man for you.

I got married at the age of 24 years old. I got married when we both have jobs .Its better to get married when both of you are ready & have income.You can plan for your wedding and your future family. I do have 3 children now and they almost finished schooling. At this marrying age my children are just like my sisters.

My sister got married last month, she's 38. We were all surprised when she made the announcement, she had all but given up on love until she met Gordon while on vacation last year. I guess age doesn't matter, it's really up to when you meet your special one.

My husband and I knew each other only 3 months before we gotta married. He was stationed in Kings Bay GA. He was and still is a Marine. We found out I was preggo with our first son only 4 months into our marriage. We have been married now for 10 years almost and three boys Casey, Scottie and Cody. It's been a hard road but I wouldn't change anything about he is my soulmate and I love him more then anything in the world I am truly blessed to have meet him and have him in my life.

Hi. infatuatedbby. I got married when I was 22 years old. I had my son when I was 23 years old. I am still married to the same man as of right now at this moment. I am glad that I got married. I don't have the time anymore, to chase down men that can be so unpredictable at times.

I got married when I was 19 years old. I am now 22 and we have a child now, a 3 year old boy. You're right, you have to finish college first before you decide on anything, I'm currently studying, I hope I get my college diploma soon.

I got married when I was twenty-six, working and have my own career. Matured and wanting a life of my own to share with somebody I love. I guess my timing is right, our daughter is now out in college and my partner and I are enjoying our prime years right now!

I am 25 years old men. And I am not yet married. Because I have no any jobs. So until I get any job then I don’t get married. Because if I have a good jobs then I can fulfill all requirement of my partner. So now I am trying to get a good job. And I am waiting for that day when I get good jobs. So after getting job I can marry. But in present there is no chance of marry.
