    I was 31 and he was 24. We are going to be celebrating 20 years of marriage this year (same day as stellarfellar). He was very capable of making sound decisions. (He married me, and that was a sound decision )

    First marriage - I was 21 and he was 28. He was mature enough, but a jerk. Married for a little over a year before we separated. My problem wasn't maturity. I was very mature at that age due my life circumstances, but there were other issues going on at the time and in hindsight, I didn't make healthy decisions.

    Second marriage - I was 27, he was 38. Plenty mature. In January, it will be 25 years for us.

    We got married 23 years ago, when dh was 25 and I was 27. We'd been living together for 2 years. We'd both been out on our own for a number of years, and were fully functional adults at that point. We each had had a number of relationships and were both ready to settle down.

    None of the decisions we made back then (to live together, to marry, to buy a house, to have dd) were a bad decisions, even in retrospect.

    We were both 19. I think we were mature enough to be married and mature enough to realize we were too immature to be parents. We were married 7 years before we decided to have kids.

    We were both 23yo, and we were graduating from college, but we had no jobs and no money and only the vaguest plans for what we should do next. In retrospect, I'm all "What the heck were we thinking??? How did that ever work?"

    i think that that a big part of why it did work is that we were the same age, we were at the same stage of our lives, and we had extremely similar backgrounds.

    I was 22. He was 32. We joke that we have always been at the same level in terms of maturity. We have been married almost 22 years.

    Yep. We waited 5 years to have a kid. Best decision ever. Those five years were pretty incredible. Along with the 2 years we dated, we had 7 years of doing whatever the hell we wanted. Once we had kids at 27 and 37, we were 100% ready. I would not change a thing about that decision.

    Maybe this is why it seems like my husband and I are really the same age.
