Couples Who Got Married In Their 20s Reveal Whether They Regret It

If you’re in your twenties and haven’t found love, you shouldn’t feel like you’re behind. After all, sometimes it’s not a great idea to get married young. To prove it, here are some updates on how life is going from couples who got married in their twenties (some of who are happy and some who are not):

“Lasted 20 years. Will never ever get married again. Have two great young adult kids and so relieved not to be caring for that third child, my ex-husband. My advice is: Don’t settle. Don’t believe people will grow up and get responsible.” — JoeyMosaic

“Married right before turning 22. He was 24. Absolutely no regrets, except he left this earth too soon. He died 2 years ago just before our 25th. We almost made it. Two awesome kids and YEARS of memories and laughter (along with challenges and struggles we faced together). Miss him everyday.” — shignite

“Both my husband and I were 21 when we married… 13 years and three kids later, we are still going strong. It takes a lot of hard work and mutual respect, I love him so much!” — espe82

“Divorced. In my defense though, I didn’t know she was a lesbian at the time.” — monkeyvoodoo

“The military makes getting married seem great. Married and divorced within 6 months. Money makes you do crazy things.” — [deleted]

“I never thought I’d marry my high school sweetheart, but am so glad I did. Sure I’ve never dated as an adult, but from what I hear I’m not missing much. Married 6 years, together for 10, and I still genuinely LIKE him. Love him too of course, but he is also still my favorite person. I feel fortunate.” — esor_mema

“Divorced… now longer than we were married. Was too soon. I was 20, he was 24.” — galenight

“Married at twenty, divorced at twenty-two. Spent a couple years making the mistakes I should have been making at twenty, married the right girl at twenty-six, and everything since that has been amazing.” — [deleted]

“Met when I was 21 and he was 26. Got married four months later. We divorced a little over two years after that. If we would have spent more time together before eloping, then it definitely would not have happened.” — clumsyawesomeface

“When we met we were both 18. I wanted her. She wanted nothing to do with me. In fact, she said she would never, ever go out with me. A year later we started dating. Two years after that we were married. Two years after that she held my hand through my thyroid cancer surgery. In three weeks, we will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.” — zacware

“Life is perfect. We get on so well and I love him more than I could imagine. We share all core values and there is never conflict that’s worse than minor stuff like ‘stop leaving your wet towels in obscure places.’” — SakuraFerretTrainer

“Sure we have our ups and downs, but at the end of the day we are happy with each other. Sometimes I wish I would have waited. I kinda felt rushed into being married so quickly. That’s partly my fault though. We were friends for seven years before we started dating.” — FadedMemory
