Tell Us The Things You Wish People Knew About Getting Married At A Young Age

It's time we talked about the "right" age to get married.

According to data from the US Census Bureau, people are getting married later and later. As of 2020, the median age for marriage in the United States is 28 for women and 30 for men.

But if you got married in your early twenties or even earlier than that, we want to ask: What's something that you want people to know about this experience?

Maybe it was the best decision you've ever made because you found your person and saw no reason to delay it.

Perhaps it's common and encouraged in your culture or where you're from, so it wasn't weird to get married young.

Or maybe there isn't anything different about it all but there are just a ton of misconceptions surrounding it that you want to debunk once and for all.

Maybe it's people assuming that it was an arranged marriage you didn't agree to, you had a baby on the way, or you needed financial support.

Let us know in the comments below or use this anonymous Google form to tell us what you wish more people knew about getting married at a really young age.

The best responses will be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
