Just for fun, I was wondering what is the average age for engagement and marriage is
What age do you plan on being engaged at and his age...

And how long after that do you plan to marry?

For me, we will be getting engaged sometime early next year because custom making a ring around the holiday is tough. So, I will be nearly 24 and he will be 29.
We''re planning on getting married possibly 1.5 years later in August 08
So I will be 25 and he will be 30

We are hoping to get engaged summer of next year. I will be 25 and he will nearly be 27. As Ive just started back at college and will be here for another 5 years we will have a 2 year engagement and will get married summer of 2009, depending on the money situation!

Mustang,

I was 23 and he was 24 when we got engaged. We''re planning a June 2008 wedding (1.5 years later), which will make me just 25 and him almost 26.

Hope things are going well with your custom ring!!

Aussie : p

Engaged in December 2005. We were 28 and 37. Married in August 2006. We were 29 and 38.

I was engaged once before, to a different man, and called it off. I was 23 and he was 22. We would have been married when we were 24 and 23.

We got engaged when I was 24 & he was 25, we will each be 2 years older by the time we get married 1.5 years later, b/c of the way both our birthdays fall just before the wedding date. We had been together bit over 3 years (and then friends before that, and dating briefly several years before) when we got engaged.

Engaged once before (to a different guy...my teenage year''s sweetheart!)...I was 21 (or 22). Sweet first love...but we were just young and naive!..hehe. He was 27 (or 28). To this day (9 years later) I know that if I ever went back home and asked him to marry me, he would in a heart beat!!...he''s such a great guy, but he''s just not the one for *me*


With my BF
...I''m almost sure I will *stil*l be 29 by the time we get engaged..haha....and we are planning on getting married in 2007...so I will be 30. He''s 33, will be 34 when we get married.

Did I mention I''m not looking forward to turning 30??

We'll be engaged sometime this winter (he just ordered the setting!!), both of us are 22 (and will still be when we get engaged... unless he waits past his bday in April
). Probably married October 2008, so he'd be 24 and I'll be one month shy of 24.

If all goes according to plan, we''ll be engaged when I am 29 and he is 26.
We''ll be married when I am 30 and he''s 27.
Most people think he''s older though!

We were both 25 when we got engaged (then we each turned a year older in the following 2 weeks). We will probably get married in about 1.5 years. We''ll both be 27.

Janinegirly, I bet you are not the oldest one on this board!!!! I have an 8 year old and was married before, if that gives you any clue to my age! But, it sure does seem like everyone is YOUNG now that I see ages written in black and white!

Uh, I swear I don''t feel old, but I am feeling your pain Janinegirly...everyone seems to be engaged so young (but it''s probably my old perspective!)


Engaged at 33, him 34. Married 5 months later (actually 7 months from when we set the date, but we weren''t formally engaged) and we were still the same ages as engagement.

Realistically, hoping for wedding in 2008 when I will be 36

nope!! We''ve got an AWESOME group of 30-something gals here.

engaged exactly a year ago- I was 34, he was 28
married this past September, a month after I turned 35. He''ll turn 30 in January. Yep, I''m 5.5 yrs older than DH, but he is MUCH more mature than me!

thanks for sharing everyone

I got engaged the first time at 17!!!! after a year and a half of dating
we stayed together for 5 years, but it just didn''t work for many reasons.

hopefully the second time around I''ve gotten it right
