I met my now-wife on the first day of university, we started dating a couple of months later, and by the time we were 25, we'd been going out for six years. We were only the second among our group of friends to get married, but perhaps that reflected the demographics of our group.
For various reasons, it was decided that I might be wise to maybe, perhaps, possibly start considering the possibility of shopping for an engagement ring. A bit of saving later, a proposal here or there, months of talking about flowers and first dances – we eventually alighted on "(Just Like) Starting Over" by your man above – and we were married, both aged 27. We were both ready, happy and mad-keen for a lifetime's supply of John Lewis crockery and glassware (about half of which remains unsmashed). We all met at university and the greater number of women in higher education is cited as one of the main reasons for the average marriage age getting increasingly older.
Marriage in England and Wales is legally recognised in the forms of both civil and religious unions, and is open to opposite-sex and same-sex couples.
