DD #1 got married when she was 21, between her junior and senior years in college. Her husband was 25.

DD #2 got married when she and her husband were both 22. She had graduated from college and been working full time for six months. Her husband had just graduated.

Many of their college friends either got married either the summer after they graduated or the next summer. Interestingly though most of their high school friends have not gotten married yet.

Around here, marriage is not that popular (Quebec-Canada). People tend to live together for long periods of time and then get married, often after having children.

I started dating DH at 16, he was 18. We moved in together when I was 20, DH was 22, both with degrees and employed. Had our first son at 22 (DH was 24), second at 24 (DH was 26), and last one at 26 (DH was 28). He proposed to me that summer, and we got married on our 10 year anniversary. That was 5 years ago. So we've been together 15 years, have three boys, but only married 5 years out of the 15 years.

What's sad is that no matter what I recommend they'll probably just golf the whole time .

Was your mom serious when she asked for suggestions about what to do down here or was she just yanking your chain? Are they not Disney fans? Even though I don't play golf, I've heard the Disney courses are fantastic. You didn't mention when they're celebrating their anniversary, but I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to get a prime tee time this time of the year.

Do they bowl? Downtown Disney has just opened Splitsville, a multi-level bowling alley with all kinds of different activities and restaurants.

Even just strolling around DTD, people-watching and eating Ghirardelli's ice cream, is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. We do it fairly frequently.

Whatever they decide to do, we wish them a very happy anniversary!

DH and I were 21 when we married. Babies!

We have been happily married for 23 years this year.

My only regret is that I wish I would have completed my 4 year degree before we married, but that's not how life worked out at the time. This does give me incentive to insist that our kids get their college degrees before they get married.

I would like to see our kids wait until about 25 before they marry.

I was married right after I turned 20, DH was 22. We had already been together 7 years, since I was in middle school! We've been married for 15 and together for 22. I hope my kids will do the same. I'd start to be a little concerned if they were approaching their mid-twenties and were not married and planning to have kids soon.

let's see i was 19 and dh 34. We will celebrate our 22nd anniversary in June. None of my 3 girls ( ages 21, 19, 18 ) are even talking about getting married though all are dating. I am quite content with them waiting until they are 25+ yrs old. I think i was too young. But feel 23 yrs or older is a good age.

Why isn't marriage popular up there? Just curious.
