How old were you when you met your current spouse/partner?

Have you been with your spouse or partner for a long, long time? Maybe you were high school sweethearts? Or perhaps that marriage didn’t turn out so well, or your spouse died, and you met someone else later.

We know that for many RVers, their current spouse or partner was someone they met only in recent times, perhaps after the loss of a long-time partner, even after many years of being alone, perhaps not ever expecting to fall in love again.

Many RVers are surprised to come across older couples in campgrounds and assume they’ve been together a long time, raised a family, all that. And then they start talking and hear “Oh, we met two years ago on” It is not uncommon.

For today, we’re just curious how old you were when you met your current partner? Only answer if you are in a relationship, okay?


  1. I met my Sweetheart when I was 18 married her the day before my 20th birthday, 61 years ago on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. They said it would never last.

  2. 17 in Oct of 1967, senior in HS putting my books away after last class. Donna, who was 16, sees me, pushes me out of the way and starts pawing thru my locker. Much later she told me that she wanted to meet me. We married 27-months later in March 1970. She’s my life.

  3. I first met my wife in ninth grade, we started dating our senior year, was engaged at 17, married at18, and had our first child at19. We’ve been married for 51+ years.

  4. 20. Today is our 50th wedding anniversary, and yes, we went tent camping far from home, all the way into the Rockies, on our honeymoon.

    • Happy 50th Anniversary, Diane and spouse!🍾 We wish you many more happy and healthy anniversaries to come. Have a great day! 😀 –Diane at

  5. Took me a while to find the right gal. She’s a keeper! It’s been 19 years of her aggravation but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

  6. My husband and I were born in the same hospital a day apart and were in the hospital nursery together. So, I guess we were 1 day old when we met!🤣 Been married 46 years this weekend. ❤️

  7. Met on the day before I went overseas. Got married three years later. Married for 48 years. Of course, there’s more to the story.
