How old were you when you felt ready for marriage? And how long had you been with your partner?

Just curious grin

30, 6 years

Thinking of getting hitched? smile

Married at 25, we'd been together a little over a year. I don't know when I first felt ready for marriage though, DH was the only fool man to ask me to marry him.

Got married at 23.

Got engaged after 6 weeks of getting together! (To be fair we had been friends for a long time).

We were engaged for 18 months.

Three kids and many years later and we are still love the bones of each other.

MrsJingleBells74 Mon 10-Dec-12 17:37:53

First time round was engaged at 22, married at 24, divorced at 29, way too young.

This time round married at 34, better grin

20, together two years before then.

SleighbellsRingInYourLife Mon 10-Dec-12 17:38:51

I was 31 when we got married, but 30 when I felt ready for it and when we got engaged.

MrsJingleBells74 Mon 10-Dec-12 17:39:04

Meant to add first time round we'd been together 2 years when we got engaged.

This time we got married on our second anniversary.

HotBurrito1 Mon 10-Dec-12 17:39:19

Still absurdly happy 16 years since tying the knot.

noisytoys Mon 10-Dec-12 17:39:29

Together at 16, engaged at 17, married at 18. Had DCs at age 20 and 23. 25 now and still happily married grin

I was 28. Were together just under a year before hand.

Been married 8 years next year, still going strong!

Good age for me, left having kids til over 30 so we had good few years of just us.

I was 35, DH was 46, we'd been together nine years. No point rushing these things wink

Jojobells1986 Mon 10-Dec-12 17:50:10

We'd been together for 22 months when we got married, engaged for 14 of those! Wedding day was the day before my 21st. Right from the start of the relationship we knew where it was heading - neither of us was looking for anything less than forever! Boak 5 years on & we're preparing for DC2's arrival next year! smile

Nineties Mon 10-Dec-12 17:50:46

Engaged at 21, married at 22, got together at 18. Felt ready for marriage the day I met him!

HeffalumpsAndWoozles Mon 10-Dec-12 17:52:16

We met when I was 16, married when I was 23. DD1 born a year later, DD2 another two years later. DH is only 2 years older than me, I love that we've 'grown up' together.
