        I was just shy of my 31st birthday, and he was 31. I was in a relationship for 7 1/2 years (age 19-27, no engagement) and I thought I was ready then. Thank goodness that lazy bum never asked because I'm sure I'd be divorced now. Honestly I think 21 is a bit young because I'm not the person I was 10 years ago. But it can work- my parents were 19 and 21 and they are still together. I guess it depends on the people. Nothing in life is a guarantee- people get divorced who marry at any age.

                  We were both 20 when my fiance proposed. We'll be 23 when we get married. I agree with those that say maturity is different for different people. I have been told as long as I can remember that I am so mature for my age (ironic, considering before people "know" me they guess I'm much younger). In fact, some of my best friends are well into their 40s and 50s. Some may have not known, at the age we are, what they were going to want or like in 10 years but I am confident to say that I do, and I know my fiance feels the same. I went to college for things related to family, children, and relationships. Even the researchers are not 100% certain that any age makes a difference. For some it works, for some it doesn't. A couple needs to be able to compromise, work out problems, be willing to share their feelings, etc. If they can do these things, research is not going to show that being older will make your marriage work. A perfect example of this is, almost half of all marriages end in divorce, yet the average age of first marriage in the US is at about 27.

                      I was 21...but it was my 22nd birthday two days later (it was the only way he could sneak a proposal in the setting he did without me catching on). He is 25. It will be four years that we've been together when we get married in January.
