What are people's problems with age?

I was just reading the young brides post, and I really think that people are just plain rude! Why on earth would you try to tell someone, even if it's just a fleeting thought that they are too young to get married? I'll be 25 when I walk down the isle, and I still get the same thing, whereas I thought 25 was kind of the middle man. When you know you know and I don't know when the time of "I'm so happy for you," gave way to,"your crazy for wanting to get married so young". You wouldn't tell someone in the middle of their pregnancy they are crazy for wanting to have a baby.


To ALL brides out there, young and old, I'm very happy for you! I hope your wedding day is magical and you'll look beautiful in your dress! All of your FI's are the luckiest men in the world!

Great and necessary post! I'm tired of the "you're such a baby" comment! Just annoying!

There is no right age!  I am getting married at 32 and now always get, "Is this your first?"  And "Is this his first?"  Both are usually followed by, "Ohhhh."  So that goes to show you that if you do wait, like everyone seems to think that you should, you still get weird comments and looks.  Or people say that we need to start trying for babies RIGHT away because we aren't getting younger..... soooo.... it sucks on both sides! :D

I totally agree..... from our friends and family we are now "old" and waited too long... we are only 28!!!!! But since we met 9 years ago.. they seem to think we should have been married much sooner.


From people I meet... they assume I'm only 20 because I look so young and then make the OMG you are engaged?? You are so young... why so soon?? Thats when I look at them and laugh... umm I'm 28.. but thanks!


So yeah.... I'm shocked at the differences... but sometimes people just really don't think these things through very well! lol We have always done things within OUR own time.... we march to our own drums... not the drums of others!

haha, thanks Brianna!


The ooonly people I'd ever CONSIDER questioning their thoughts on getting married young would be someone I know well and KNOW that they're probably not really ready to be married, even then I dont just blurt it out!

Good point Sesh!


You just have to do what's right for you.


FI and I get slack every now and again because I want to start trying for a little one around 8 mo after our wedding (I'll be 28 at that time). We get the "you should just be married for a while and enjoy each other" comments. I'm pretty sure that we'll be capable of enjoying ourselves plenty while trying to conceive TYVM. And by that time we'll have already been living together for like 3 years!

just ignore them, you the one happy and will star another happy life with your new husband....they still stuck alone and no having any fun and as usual complaining for everything and anything.  I really don't care about the comments.

great post! everyone should let everyone else live their own life and trust that they know what's right for them :) unless of course it was a dangerous situation with a close friend, or something of the like, but as for AGE... who cares?! live life and be happy :)

Great post!

I'll be 22 in April and I get "Oh you're too young!" blah blah blah. It's pretty annoying!
I married the father of my son, we are in love and we know we are going to spend the rest of our lives together. So why wait?

As someone at the other end of the spectrum - I'm 49 - I may have some insight.  


However, that does not mean that it is my, or anyone else's business as to when you get married.  On the other hand, if someone very close to you expresses specific concerns I would encourage you to listen to them.  The important part here is evaluating whether that person is motivated by love for you and that they can give you specific examples to back up why they are concerned for you.  My guess is that the majority of the time, such comments say more about the commenter, than they do about you.


One thing I can assure you - your view of EVERYTHING will be very different in 20 years.  Life, at times, can be very difficult.  At other times it can be exceptionally joyful 


I don't want to end up sounding like your mothers - so I'll leave it at that.

My personal opinion is that it's nobody's business what you do with your life or when you do it.  We are all living our own lives and making our own decisions.  If you choose to get married "young," then do it!  If you choose to wait, do it!  It's YOUR life!

Well, I'll be 30 when I get married, my fiance 27 - if someone said, 'Oh, you're so OLD to be getting married!', I would have a few choice words for them!  It's none of their business - you get married when you're in love - regardless of your age!
