18 is a little young. I got married the month before my 21st birthday. I think that was pretty young now that I look back at it. But I'm happy to say that over 20 years later, I'm still married to the same guy!

I got married when I was almost 26. I never wanted to get married young and certainly not before finishing my studies. I also wanted to have some time before I had kids, so I didn't have a child until I was 30. I"m fine with my choices but looking back I might still have married at 26, but I might have had my kids earlier.. or maybe not :)

I was 17 when we got married. That was 42 years ago, lots of fights, making up, good times and bad in those years, But worth it.

I was sixteen the first time I was married. That lasted about five years. I didnt get married again until I was 43. We have been married for two years now.

I got married at 20, a month before turning 21. I think I was too young, but were still together after 4 years.

i got married when i was 21. more than a year now. and we have an adoring baby boy. i am happy with my husband, we had fights and misunderstandings but we both talk about. we also really find ways to keep our relationship happy and our our love for each other growing. i think that is very important.

i got married when i was 25 at the same day of my birthday. you konw, in china the marrige law stipulates that the man can not get married until he is 22 years old and the women 20, and not so strict for some minority people. nowadays, many young people here prefer getting married at their 30s.many reasons involved, such as wage, house, job and competation.

18 yeah I think that is a little young at least it would have been for me. When I was 18 I was not in the Marriage Age. So I guess its where you are in your life. I was 21 when I got married to a 36Yo man. We had our first daughter when I was 23 and my second at 24. im not sure that I was ready at 21 but really not at 18. If you were ready then it was not to early for you. Best of luck to you.

i'm the same as you...i got married at 18 ....my husband was 32 at the time...i think...i think it depends on the person/people involved on how old you should be when getting married. i've been married for 5 years and the only thing i regeret is not having much money...but i can't control that anyway...for me it was a good choice, and apprently it was a good choice for you as well since you've been married for 11 years...for some people 18 is just a little too early, you have to have maturity to work in a relationship and as a married couple. you have to be able to commit to one person which a lot of young kids these days don't really want to do.

I got married a couple weeks after I turned 23. I've been married almost 7 1/2 years now and have 4 kids. I was 3 months pregnant at my wedding and then got pregnant on my 1st and 2nd wedding anniversaries, lol. 3 kids in the first 3 years of our marriage. We just had our 4th last year. We are 30 now (my husband will be 31 next month).

I met my husband when I was 18 and got married when I was 23 I know people think that's young ,but people got married younger than that back in the day and look how long their marriages lasted. A very long time. I've taken care of patients that have been married for 70 to almost 80 years that's along time. i'm trying to reach that.
