    curious what the avg age is of ppl that are currently gettin married? i think its more difficult for younger couples to get married because the cost of living has gone up and its a bit more difficult to get into the real estate market for those who wish to have a house before/immediately after they are married...

    And from my own personal experience, military people marry mostly for the extra benefits. Sometimes it's not just that, but I think it's mostly for it.

    Seems like mid-20s is the typical age. A lot of people are just living together without marrying tho.

    most everyone i know in that situation are 21-26......but that's just the age group with which i'm most associated.


    the younger ones all had kids first.... the older ones are more intentional.

    I was engaged at 20, but that didn't work out. ;)

    After 4 years together, I ended up marrying my husband at 30, and he was a month shy of 27.

    It has been that long :o Our 1st year anniversary was spent at The Melting Pot here in Salt Lake and this July we are going to be in Vegas for a week for the 2nd anniversary :big grin: We can't wait, I got Laura tickets to Cirque du Soleil 'O'. First row tickets, "Wet Seats" they call them. It's a water one, supposed to be one of their bests.

    I work with a lot of young adults in my department and some of them were married at around 23-28. Some of them were shotgun marriages.

    For me though, 30+ would be the ideal age. I'm 19 now. I would take the time in my 20s to explore different types of people as well as myself and not marry the first woman I have a LTR with. Not to mention getting my career and finances in place first, that would be priority #1. So marriage would be at the bottom of my to do list until I'm at least 30 and more mature.

    I was 25, she was 24. Together since high school. Divorced 9 years later. Goes to show that an extended relationship before marriage is not bullet proof.

    :werd: I've seen that too.

    But Sometimes it depends on the area tho. Like here, Washington DC area, people are more focused on their career first so most people wait to get married and start a family so around late 20's-early 30's is when people are gettin married/startin a family. At least, this is what I'm seeing/hearing in the area.
