23. No, it was an awful decision. I thoroughly believed nobody wanted me, and I took the first guy who showed any interest in me and married him because I felt it was my only chance and I didn't want to be alone. We were incredibly incompatible, and I spent nine years believing I had to live with my mistake. I finally divorced him after having a nervous breakdown due to how he had handled our lives.

I learned a lot, but I still feel I wasted my entire 20's because of fear.

I don't know if I can do it again. I finally found the love of my life, but I'm terrified of tying my life to another person again. Besides, he's sure he wants kids, and I don't know if I really want any, especially since it'll have to be done in vitro.

I was 19 when I moved in with him and was 22 when we married. It was a good decision at the time--but not for the long haul.

We moved in together when he was 20 and I was 22. We got married when I was 24 and he was 22. We have our ups and downs, but are in it for the long haul. So no regrets about my first and, hopefully, only marriage.

I was 18, and it ended up in divorce five years later.

I was 22 the 1st time - and it was a big mistake. I learned a lot about myself - and what makes a good marriage. All of these lessons have helped my second marriage that took place after 10+ of being single again.

I was 24 and he was 29, and after being together for 5 years (3 married) we're still going strong. Yes, we have our differences, but I'm proud to say that we've never fought each other and have always managed to keep things civilized.

I am 25 and not married. I was in a 5 year long relationship t and we were due to get married in 2 weeks and he backed out. I was devestated then, but we decided to continue our relationship and get married later. Us nt getting married was the best decision of my life. He walked out when our daughter was 2 and weve only seen him a handful of times since. Glad i didnt have to go through a divorce as well. I am in a long term relationship now and we talk about etting married and do want to get married but were taking our time, raising our little girls together and when the time feels right we'll get married. with age i have realized with my firat relationship it neer felt right, it felt scary and rushed and expected of us and not something either of us really wanted.

18, bad decision, but no regrets, it helped make me who I am today. 2nd marriage, 32, good decision.

I personally learned so much about myself between 20 and 30 - I didn't really know who I was or what I really wanted until around 30 (I sure thought I did though! ), and then I was able to choose a partner who shares my values and respects/adores who I really am.

This is my first marriage, his second. We were together as a couple for 10 years before we got married, and we've now been married 5 and a half years.

So we met when I was 17 & he was 23, and got married when I was 27 & he was 33.
