How old were you when you got married?

    I think people in arranged marriages enter with different expectations. They aren't relying on big romantic ideas to sustain the relationship. The expectations are more practical. I'm not arguing in favor of it, but it seems as if that is part of why such marriages can last.

    Got married as 36. Perfect time in my case. I would have been a disaster getting married in my 20s. And the woman I would have married in my 20s would have made it a mega-disaster.

    Married at 32 (still married 21 years later), child at 34, two things that would have been incomprehensible to hard-living, barely employable Huggy in his 20s.

    I was 31 when I got married -- in the same Las Vegas chapel where Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman got married. I got divorced five years ago....

    But I've been dating my current gf for four and a half years and we're probably gonna get engaged this year.

    P.S. John B. Foster, you are now known to me as The Thread Starter. That should be your new SJ handle, just like The Big Ragu's should be TL; DR.

    Write starts with a “W” not an “R”.

    Probably the first and last time I will like one of your comments. I thought I actually had you on ignore, but then I remembered I took you off and I simply don’t often visit the politics thread, your traditional haunt. Happy New Years. Go Red Sox

    That's a plunge. I'm not sure I'm up for a second marriage. I kind of wish I was.

    Nope. Once was plenty. Glad I did it, got two great kids (and one fabulous granddaughter with more to come) out of it. But nope.
    Not sure I'm capable of giving back what a proper marriage requires at this stage.
