    My first marriage did not work out.  I was about twenty years of age and in no way, shape or form ready to settle down.

    I was 23 and my husband was 24. We r born in the same year but I hadn't turned 24 yet. We had 2 children before we got married and have had 2 more since. It's been 5 years, and it's a struggle, it's something we are constantly working on. I'm not sure where I will be 10 years from now, but hopefully much happier for all the hard work put in.

    I was 27 and my husband 30. This is a little bit later than "average", at least that was the case in Japan when we got married in 1993. My parents were married at the same age as we, but in their days, it was considered quite late.

    i was 20 yrs. old when i was married.  my wife was 21.  we began dating when i was 12.  realizing that 50% of marriages end in divorce, i began, early on, saving for a possible divorce.  after 49 years i've saved almost $14.00.

    I was a single (and lovin' it) mother at 29, married at 32.  My husband was 36 when we married and it was a first for us both.

    Twenty-five years later and we're glad we both waited to the point of truly knowing ourselves and each other before marriage.  And, we're glad we lived together first -- advocated for both of our kids, too!

    15..........My Grandpa "showed" me how to forge the documents, that  he or my Dad would not sign.

    Still married to the same man, just a couple of  years older than me, 35 years later.

    I have never thought of divorce..........murder, from time to time, but never divorce.
    He, too, has had his moments........

    I was 21 and he was 22.  Though it was my first marriage, it was his second.  We were married for 20 years, before I had enough of the infidelity (him) and other stuff.  It could have left me bitter, but I am actually happier now and look forward to remarrying 3 years later to man who thinks a lot like I do, morally and generally.  My ex, however, is still living the way he likes to live and that's unfortunate for any woman he chooses to tie the knot with next.

    Which time?

    Seriously, I have been married three times and I was 28 when I got married the first time; 35 the second time and 39 the 3rd time.

    Yeah, three times in 11 years. Does anyone have a problem with that?  :-)

    I was 30, my husband 42 when we got married.  That was 5 1/2 years ago and we were only given six months to last since we got married within 7 weeks of meeting each other.  Being married is one of the hardest things I've ever done but it is so worth the effort.

    I was 21, my wife had just turned 20. Best day of my life. Actually, I take that back, the best day of my life was when my (future) wife introduced herself to me a few weeks after my family moved into her street, when I was 16.

    We've been married 41 years; I'm still so in love with my wife I actually wrote a Hub about it (!). Not a saccharine sweet story; more about how we've gone about not letting the inevitable differences and challenges get in the way of staying true to yourself, and in love.

    And happy, at least most of the time...

    I was 19 and my husband was 23, I got married because I got pregnant.. My husband cheated, lied, and after losing the baby at 5 months I left. 2 days later he got picked up for being a registered sex offender and not registering (I had no clue) He is in jail and our Marriage is being annulled because it is considered fraud. We were married February 14, 2011. Needless to say, I will not be getting married again for quite some time.

    My first marriage I was way too young, married at 21, divorced by 23. But, it put me in the place I needed to meet my current husband. (This is his first marriage.) I was 26 when we married, and we've been married for 6 years (tomorrow is our anniversary). I'd say it's working out. I couldn't imagine life without him.

    I was 20 and he was 24.  We were married 1 week short of 15 years.  I left before our 10th anniversary and the divorce was final just before our 15th anniversary.  We had only known each other a month before we got married.  I have 3 awesome kids from this marriage, so no regrets!

    I was 17 and he was 21 the first time I got married....it lasted over 20 years and then I had enough of the abuse and left him. At 44 I married the man I am with now (he is the same age). My now guy treats me and my adult children very well.

    My older sister was 14 when she married her husband...over 30 years later they are still together with three children and four grandchildren...

    My husband and I were both 21.  I come from Hawaii, where it is common to get married young.  His family grew up in Seattle and they gave us a lot of guff for wanting to get married "so young."  Not having their support put a huge strain on our engagement and we even considered eloping.  However, we were confident in our love and desire to get married that we went through with it and even his parents decided to come.  We are happily married and are glad that we did not let others determine our future for us.

    The first time I married I was 19, and didn't have any more business being married than flying a space shuttle. We moved on shortly thereafter. The second time, I married a lunatic (didn't know that until we were hitched), and was miserable for a number of years. Married my wife last year and we are so happy I'm expecting the police to come to my door any minute. We are soul mates and it's forever. The third time, as they say.... smile
