My friend and I were joking today how we each might find a husband/wife in college in the next 4 years. Were both gonna go to grad school but i was just wondering how often/who on CC found their spouse in their college?

    Ugh I don't even want to know. I'll get depressed lol. I definitely won't find someone here. My next destination will probably have to be a city :p.

    Well, I have two more years here to find any potential candidates to make my husband. If not, I have graduate school or maybe some friend will be willing to pair me up with some guy. There's always online dating when desperation sets in (yikes!) =]

    Well I cannot speak yet for my own experience (still 2 years to go) but at my school it's FREAKISHLY common for alums to get hitched together. These of course are rough stats, but I heard 80% of people who stay for 4 years (which is about 1/2 the people who come in) get married to another alum. A couple days ago, I ran into 2 alum planning their wedding. They'll be married in June at the church building our school uses as a music hall.

    I might be transferring (like a vast number of my classmates) so this might not apply to me, but it is something I think about when I consider staying

    The other day in French class, our teacher was asking us random questions as a game. One was if anyone of us were engaged. Apparently, there are 3 kids in her other sections for french who are engaged. Last year in my women studies course, there were 2 senior girls who were engaged.

    I don't know how I'd feel about finding my husband in college though. I don't want to get married until I reach 27 =\

    College of William and Mary... Like 60% of the school marries someone from the school. No Joke.

    I was in middle school when my husband was in college. We did not date until later.

    i am not even thinking about marriage until maybe late 20's like 27,28, or older. I know friends from high school who are now married and with children. i just don't want to go down my parents route and marry right out of college only soon regret it.

    Wow...I want to be married by 27 at the latest so I can have my first baby by 30 at the latest!
  • MojaveMochaMojaveMocha Registered User Posts: 123 Junior Member
    ^^ LOL I think 27 is the golden age, that would be ideal for me.

    I've got grad school and possibly law school to think of. And I'd like to be somewhat secure in a career before having children. But as for finding a mate in college -- I just don't see that happening right now. Of course its when you least expect it that it happens...

    I want to be DONE having children by the time I am 30, which is part of the reason we are not in the 25+ camp. We want to have a year or two of marriage to ourselves, we want at least two or three kids, and I do not want to still be having them in my 30's. That'd be QUITE the squeeze if we waited until we were 25 to get married. So instead it'll be 23.

    Granted, were I not in a position to marry until 25+ I wouldn't have been complaining, whenever it happens is when it happens, but it just so happens to have happened before then. :P
