Young Brides/Grooms just engaged?
Posted: Mar 31, 2011 12:38 AM

Hi! I was just curious if there are any other young brides or grooms out there who just got engaged, and if so, where are you starting for planning? I got engaged at the beginning of this month, and I'm 18 and fiance' is 21

Dear Teri,

Are you supporting yourself? Are you living on the money that you yourself earn, without help from your parents or other relatives? How about your groom? Is he supporting himself from the money that he himself earns without help from parents or others?

Are you paying your bills on time? Any consumer (credit card) debt? Have you seen each other's credit reports?

Have you filed tax returns? Have you seen each others' tax returns? Do you have savings? Emergency fund? Are you enrolled in a retirement plan at your workplace?

Yes to all for him, half and half for me

Lol yes to all, except no for credit debt on both our ends, thankfully

Yepyep, and yep:) No on my half for filing, and no about a retirement plan for me.

I suppose I'm young, I'm twenty currently, Will be twenty two by the time I'm married. My fiance and I go to school together and work for a general contractor. We have been friends for a few years but I wouldn't think about getting married now... 22 seems so much more reasonable then 20. I suppose to each their own though.

My fiance and I are pretty young. We're both 20 and we'll be 21 by the time we're married. We support ourselves with little help from our parents. It's hard sometimes, the biggest thing is older people telling us we're too young to be married, but we have our parent's support so that's all that matters.

We've planned a few things like what we want the menu to be at the reception, the people in the wedding party, what the party will wear, etc.

As far as being a young engaged couple goes, it's not about the age, it's the maturity level. As long as you two think you're capable of handling the marriage life then good for you. Good luck to you!

I have just got engaged on the 23rd and I am also 18 (turning 19 soon) and my fiancÚ is 23. He currently is doing his Master's in Engineering and has two part time jobs, I am getting a fully time job for the summer until the September semester starts so I can continue to work on my Nursing Degree. My parents currently are supporting me and my schooling. We are moving into a small apartment at the start of next month. Im both nervous and excited for the future, but we are taking it one step at a time. We plan on telling our parents and friends at a dinner we have arranged at a nice restaurant tomorrow evening! :D I know one thing is for sure, he is my soulmate and the fact that we are young isnt even an issue with becoming engaged and promising to share the rest of our lives together. :) Wishing you all the best!

We both promised ourselves and our parents that after were married June 21, 2014, then we will go to college and get that set and over with and then start family wise. So yes i know were young but we've been dating for almost 3years.

both have been supporting ourselves for a while (him since he was 11, me since I was 13)
both of us work and have a retirement plan and benefits from our jobs
first timers though- we dont know ANYTHING about weddings.
I am planning but I really wouldnt have known what to do if it weren't for this website lol
