    I don't think time/age is what makes you learn about your likes and dislikes. My thoughts on marriage are simply that as we age, we will inevitably change as we grow and as we mesh. If both of us understand that and make the concious choice every day, then I believe... we will be ok.

    That being said, I'll be 25 when I get married .

      I know! I had a high school BF that wanted to get married right after graduation at 18! Then the guy I dated before DH proposed when I was 19 or 20.

      We used to joke that I could find everyone in the world to marry me, but no one to take me out to dinner & a movie.

          Don't worry Rebecca, I'm sure I have more wrinkles and gray hair than you do! I will even bet money I have more gray!

            25. My brother was 20 when he proposed to his wife, and she was 18.

              I was proposed to on my 24th birthday. We dated 2 years before that, and decided to have a semi-long engagement of 2 years. We will be getting married about 2 weeks shy of my 26th birthday.

              We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

              We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

                We met when I was 19 and he was 20...we just got engaged and I'm now 25 and he's 26. We're really glad we waited as long as we did. We both wanted to make sure we had finished school and were financially set...so if they think they're ready then the best of luck to them both :)

                  The hubby and I dated through college. I am still learning about him more and more each day. I just found out that he does not like apples...LOL. I didn't even know that information. We are going on 7 years together in December. Our one-year wedding anniversary is on August 25th. I wouldn't have married the man that he was in beginning.
