  1. I was married at 36. My ten year wedding anniversary is fast approaching. I gave birth to our baby at 44. I’m sure that is too old for a lot of people. I was once asked if I was the mom or the grandmother. Since I was nursing my child I would think the answer was obvious. Who breastfeeds their grandkid?
    One of my coworkers became a grandmother at 42. We agreed that we have no idea which is better, starting early or later in life. Things happen when they are supposed. All this to say there is no right time, there is only the right time for YOU. People can take their issues and shove them. 😉

    • Thank you for sharing your story, Peggy! Congrats on your 10 year anniversary- what a milestone! I’m sorry for the unnecessary comments that you received. I totally agree with what you said: there is no right time, only right for you. I love that!

  2. Hello, I really enjoyed reading the article. I too was married at 19, celebrated my 34th anniversary on 8/30. I can relate to all the comments you got, which I agree with you. All I know is that I’m still happy and living my best life with my family. Best wishes always.

    • Aw, thank you for sharing, Monica. I totally agree- I’m happy and living my best life too. Wishing you all the best as well!

  3. Hello! I could not love this article more! Thank you for standing up for marriage. Most 19 yr olds would have simply shacked up. You did it right. And you ARE right…God at the center makes it all work. Again, thank you! xoxo

  4. My husband and I were married at 19 years old also. I wouldn’t trade those years for all the money in the world. I have never regretted getting married “young”. We were married for 41 years…the only thing that split us up was his death. If we would have waited for “the right age” to marry we would have missed out on those years.

    • I am sorry for your loss, Kay. Though I certainly don’t have 41 years of happy marriage to compare to, I too am glad that we didn’t wait. These past 6 years married have been some of the best of my life! I certainly would have missed out on a lot of joy.

  5. Your wedding pic is so sweet! My sister got married at 19 too, and they have been married for 11 years now 🙂 I love stories of young love!
