How Old Were you When You First Got Married?

Postby ghoti » July 16th, 2012, 1:30 pm

...and are you still married? For you single folk, how old are you and do you plan to ever get married?

I was 32 years old and yes, still married at 56.

22, still married after 19 years.
I know it seems hard sometimes but remember one thing. Through every dark night, there's a bright day after that. So no matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep your head up and handle it.

I was convinced I was never going to get married until I was 31. It came as quite a shock to me that I was wrong.

I think you are better off not getting married than having one crash and burn. I know that's true if there are kids involved.

Do you find you get a lot of pressure from all sides to get hitched?

When I was younger I got all sorts off pressure. I don't get that much pressure any more.
