How old were you when you got married?

    I was 23-years-old when I got married. I’m still with my wife, and still in love with her, however, we have both discussed together that if we had to do it again, we would have waited a few more years(we’re both the same age).

    How old were you when you got married, and if you could do it all over again, would you do it at the same stage of your life or wait a little?

    Same with children. Unfortunately, we cannot have any.

    Was 31 when I got married, which was just about the right time. I don’t think I was mature enough earlier — almost got married at 24 or so, which would have been a disaster.

    We waited a few years to try to have kids because we wanted to travel and both of our careers were very busy. Ended up having kids at 35 and 38 which was old than I would have thought in my mind when I was younger, but was right for us. We were pretty clueless with our first, but I think that would have been true 10 years earlier or later

    I was 29 about to turn 30. I was at the right place in my life for sure.

    33 and kids at 36&38. I proposed to my wife after 3 weeks and married 7 mos later; now we’re going 23 yrs strong.

    Now I’d like to be younger w my kids but I wasn’t mature enough. Blows me away, when my mom was my age now, I was already out of law school 3yrs.

    35, and 43. Glad I waited on both counts. I graduated from college a week before my dad's 50th birthday. My son was just about ready to start first grade on my 50th birthday.

    Married at 36 and wife delivered our daughter when I was 40. In my early 30s I decided I'd never get married. Then the right person came along. Funny how that happens. I never felt I was too old when my daughter was growing up. But, during all of her group ventures -- soccer, girls scouts, volleyball -- I was the oldest parent.

    I was married at 27. I was 31 when our daughter was born. I'd happily do both at the same stage in my life again if I had the chance to do it all over again.

    Married at 27 and again at 42. I was 46 when we adopted an 8 year old boy. I was often the oldest parent, which was fine. I even wrote about some of my son’s friend’s parents and teachers when they played high school sports.

    The plan with Wife 1 was to have a child in 1990, which never happened. It’s odd to think I would have a 28 years old now.
