mind you things are going great and we're both in our early twenties. well I'm 25 and she's 24. we both have steady jobs, finished university together (that's where we met btw). Both our families get along great, we have no kids or pets to tie us together and we've been living together for 2 years now. We've been together for 3 years now.

I stil think that's way too young. You DO know that you'll have to spend the REST OF YOUR LIFE with her? I'm sure she's great but honestly take your time in getting married. Wait til you're around 28/early thirties as someone else said. Its not that much time and even that is way too young in my opinion lol. But seriously wait til you're 28 if you're serious about this. Marriage changes things-its NOT the same as just living together. Marriage isn't about love-its about committment and responsibility. Once you get married, you'll probably have kids, mortgage-a lot of responsibility all in all. Are you ready for that? Would you not prefer to be a bit selfish in your twenties?
And divorce is such a bitch! It takes so much time and stress. I'm sorry to be negative about it but would you not prefer to delay such responsibility until you're a bit older? I'm European too and if you said you were getting married at 24, people would think you were crazy tbh. Here its around 28-30 avg age to marry, maybe even early thirties for some people. If you do want children, you need to get married by 30 because the woman's fertility goes down big time after 35. Marriage isn't seen as this amazing institution here-I mean, people get married but there are lots of people who just live together for years too. I think the Christian influence has really dimmed here so society is much more secular-which could explain the differences maybe.0
