    I was married at 19. Literally 8 days before I turned 20. We will be celebrating 9 years of marriage this year and going strong with our two little girls ages 5 and 2 🎉🎉

    This relationship is so refreshing. No bs No romanticizing every single thing. It felt real, you guys felt real. Definitely not just some influencers. Love this and can’t wait for more episodes.

    Got married at 20. Wife was 19. The amount of “is she pregnant” questions I got was absolutely insane.

    • iamthesocks
      iamthesocks 16 days ago

      I can't imagine. I'm pregnant with my first at 25 and my husband 28, and even a that we've had people assume it was an unplanned pregnancy just because we're younger and didn't wait very long after getting married.

    • Morgan Widdison
      Morgan Widdison Month ago +8

      I was 17½, he was 18. Believe me when I say, the "is she pregnant" questions were maddening.
      No. Definitely not pregnant.
      Yes, we really did get married.
      No, it wasn't a spur of the moment decision.
      Yes, we actually meant to do it.
      We had plans to get married. He was going on a mission for two years. He ended up not being able to go. We decided to get married, knowing it was what we wanted. We just celebrated 8 years strong and he is the Matt to my Abby, my everything.

    It would be really interesting to hear your parents' perspective on that period of time when you were wanting to get married and they thought it was too early.

  • Beth agbunag

    I’m always so amazed at Matt’s ability to be vulnerable. He shares his emotions with Abby in such a way I haven’t seen many men do. She’s is a luck girl atleast in that regard.

    "When you get married, you marry a set of problems." "Choose your hard." Such helpful advice, that really puts it into perspective!! I enjoyed this podcast and hearing your beautiful story. It's fun to see you guys in a different way than on your Clip-Share channel!! Excited for future episodes:)

    Me and my husband got married at 18 and 19 and will be celebrating 6 years in March. We have 2 toddlers and a set of twins. We keep God in the center of our marriage and that is what makes our marriage thrive ! ✨️

    She was 17 the first time I saw her. She was 20 and I was 23 when we were married. I can relate to many of the experiences the two of you have had, and just wanted to let you know 4 kids, 11 grandchildren, and 47 years later, I'd rather be with her than anyone else.

    This reminds me SO MUCH about my relationship with my husband! We met and started dating at 15
    He was my first kiss
    We got married on our 8 year dating anniversary
    We are now 26 and expecting our first baby in 2 months ❤️

    As an 18 yr old in a committed relationship for over two years this was so educating, like i feel so normal now, all my friends are out there partying but im already getting serious about things and thinking about marriage.

    • movingacrosstheglobe
      movingacrosstheglobe Month ago +1

      I think you can still do both though, my partner and I love going out (together!) to parties, drink the night away and are still sure we want the same things as you in the future! Partying doesn't have to mean hook up culture is the only reason for that - just to give another perspective :)

    • Noah Ryan
      Noah Ryan Month ago +8

      There is absolutely nothing wrong with that coming from a 25 year old! Hookup culture has our minds warped. There's nothing wrong with settling down Young. There's nothing wrong with enjoying your youth in a different way with somebody by your side ❤️

      I‘m 20 and have been in a relationship with my 22 year old boyfriend for over 3 years. We are not planning to get married anytime soon (we want to be financially stable first), but we talk about marriage and kids all of the time and know we want to spend our lives together. There is no point in dating around, when you just know you have found the right person for you ❤

    • Madelynn Meyer
      Madelynn Meyer Month ago +21

      Same! My husband and I were 17 and 18 when we started dating and we were serious right off the bat. Got married when we both were 21 (I’m now 22) and have no regrets! None of our friends could relate though, since most of them hadn’t been in any relationships, so it feel a little strange talking to them about our plans for marriage in the beginning. But I’d definitely recommend young marriage!

  • Job Diaz
    Job Diaz Month ago +34

    I’m just speechless they did this tbh. Abby seemed to be suppperrrr shy to just talk in general but to have a podcast and have conversations as serious and loving as these…. Is a game changer. Thanks guys for this!

    I am 15 and still have never dated anyone 😂, but your love story is so sweet and I’m learning I just have to be patient because I will find the one because what you guys have is magical and one day I will have that. Love your family and man Griffin is growing up so fast but has amazing parents that love him sooooo much. Love the new podcast and thanks for putting a smile on my face when I really needed it. Can’t wait for more episodes this one was soo good

    I’m 44 and absolutely adore you both. You bring a very innocent vibe to how marriage should be. I been married for 23 years and I can say you both are my role models for a good marriage. It’s not easy! Today is my 23rd wedding anniversary. 5 kids and 1 granddaughter later, and here we are. It goes by sooooo fast! Enjoy it, love each other, don’t go to bed angry, communicate and become the best of friends. Griffin is an absolutely adorable baby. You guys do make a beautiful baby, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for growing your family. Fun fact, after we had our first daughter, we ended up having twins! 😊

    This is a sweet story! I appreciate how committed you both are to each other at a young age. The people I was with in my teens and 20s were not like that. What a blessing I did not marry them and got married at 33 😅. I love how we all have different love stories. Makes life so much sweeter.

    I loved the part where you talked about wishing you could go back to that place of long distance and young love.
    I'm in a long distance relationship (year 4 of it!) and I KNOW I'm so ready for marriage, but I also need to remember that this time is precious as well and not to waste it.

  • Unraveled Motherhood
    Unraveled Motherhood Month ago +8

    This is so sweet reminds me of me and my husband’s early dating days. We got married at age 20 and my family was sooo not into it, but we loved each other so much. My grandma said she wouldn’t pay for my college anymore and a cousin tried to bribe me, but we didn’t care we were going to make it work financially. Now we are 27 and about to have our 4th baby and I would never change any of that. I do miss those sweet dating days when strangers would come up to us and say how they knew we were so in love because we were! It’s so sweet to hear your story and I think it’s great that you guys waited till marriage what a blessing I hope some young people can be inspired to do the same.

    I’ve finally found a person/couple to relate to. I have a pretty serious relationship with my boyfriend and my mom is definitely my best friend forever, and sometimes I even feel guilty for spending time with my significant other, instead of with her. I know it’s kinda inevitable, because you grow up and find a partner for you, however I just do everything to keep the best relationship with my mother❤️

      Saba Navaei Month ago +3

      Hii, I don't know how old are u or how long you are in a relationship, but I just wanted to let you know that if you spend less time with someone, doesn't mean that you are not close anymore like I have friends from pre-school that we chat like twice a year now but we just know that if anything comes up we are there for each other, but life happens, your relationship with your friends and family will change eventually and it's inevitable.
      Also if you guys are in this relationship for like 5-6 months, just give yourselves time to learn the skill of balancing, when u are in that phase u are new and u need time to figure out so many things, just don't be hard on yourself.

  • Avery Thompson

    My husband and I got married young and were in college. Everyone asks if we felt like we missed out on the college experience, but when you spend that time with the person you’re going to spend forever with, to me that was so much better than any party could offer. I’m definitely pro young marriage. I wouldn’t want my life any other way!
    Also, I’m so glad you guys are doing podcasts now!! Bring on the long episodes! Love you guys!

    Alejandra Vesga Month ago +7

    I love that you don't romanticized relationships, and that you are fully aware that love is about being committed to you each other and working together to fix your issues as a couple. Also the fact that Matt said there is no perfect marriage is key. Nowadays there so many people who pretend to have the perfect relationship when that does not exist

  • Jennyhbell
    Jennyhbell Month ago +7

    This was so cute and I can really relate. My husband and I married when I was 20 and he was 19. We eloped (I didn’t even think of it like that back then but we definitely did haha) Looking back I can see how insane it probably looked to everyone and as a mother now I can only imagine how I would feel if one of my children did the same. It was the best decision we’ve ever made though, 13 years and three kids later and we’re still best friends ❤

    My husband basically asked me to marry him before we officially started dating. We were friends and would talk often over the phone while I was away at school. When I came back home he told me he wanted to date, but that he didn’t want to date for just for fun, it was with the intention of getting married and if I couldn’t see that happening then we shouldn’t date. 😂 Now, we’ve been married 11 years and have 3 kids.

I’m a young adults counselor and I listened to your first episode today after work. Listening to both of you talk about your young love experience has honestly made my day. I’m so happy that you guys changed your mind about doing a podcast. 😊 Best wishes to you both and baby Griffin! ✨

  • TessaKaye
    TessaKaye Month ago +4

    My husband and I got married at 19 and 20 (we’re 22 and 23 now and expecting our second child) and it broke my heart how many people just straight up told me I was making a mistake. And it was adults that I knew who had also got married young and were still married so I thought they would be on my side. The only people who were super excited for us were my husband’s parents and an older couple we became really close with which helped a lot. But it really hurt my relationship with all of those people, because it didn’t make me feel like I was making a mistake or cause me to reconsider. It just felt like no one was on my (our) side and like no one trusted my ability to make a decision because I was positive 1000% that marrying my husband then was the right thing to do and what God was leading us to do.

    Their is definitely a maturity to you both, and knowing and having the commitment to each other, within the sanctuary of marriage, for it to last forever. Wonderful how you both are experiencing new ventures together and it is certainly working! And also, you are aware of the impact you may have, in discussions you choose to have, to make a difference in other young people watching your podcast, who are admiring and looking up to you. Your keeping it grounded and real with life for others in your age group and even older to see.

    I've been watching Matt & Abby for a while, and watching this podcast has really made me feel normal about young love and marriage. My boyfriend and I are 23 and 24. We've been dating since 2021(making two years in a weeks time) but we have literally been ready for marriage about 6 months into dating each other. We both admitted to being in love with each other a month into the relationship and he's even told me if he was financially stable enough, we'd already have a kid or 2. What I am trying to say is, Watching Matt and Abby's relationship really makes young love feel real. We aren't the majority. Most people want to 'enjoy' their young ages by playing the field and whatnot but I feel like when you know, you know and I am glad that my boyfriend and I don't have to feel like we're the only ones in the world with this mentality. Espeically in this day and age where love and relationships seem to be fading... our plan is to be married on December 12, 2026

      My husband and I started dating at 22yo, got married at 24 and had our baby at 25. I never felt it was a "young love", maybe because I had already done a lot up to that point in life lol, but now we are both 30 and it feels like no time has passed by. It's crazy. But I wouldn't have done anything different

  • jakesbug

    I love hearing your story! Reminds me of being 17 myself and falling in love with my now-husband :) Slightly different because while I was finishing up high school, he was a little older and living on his own, working, partying, etc. Two weeks after we met, I went to his 20th birthday and we have been inseparable since. We were non-traditional college students - went (together) almost 3 years after getting married. We chose similar degrees and had a lot of classes together which was SO MUCH FUN. I enjoyed doing it with my best friend! Coming up on 10 years married, dating for 13, and due with our second child in June. Beyond blessed.

  • Heather Ward

    What I love about you two is the level of maturity that each of you have, which btw is way beyond your years. Your understanding of commitment, give and take and marriage is something that takes some people years to grasp ... if ever. I've been following your adventures for about a year now and I look forward to each new post. Sometimes I feel guilty ... like I'm prying into someone's personal life, but I just can't help it - your both so darn adorable! Thank you for sharing a part of your lives with us. May you never lose the spark that you have for life and each other.

      “Your understanding of commitment, give and take and marriage is something that takes some people years to grasp” I think they did premarital counseling before getting married. I wonder if that’s why they have such wisdom on these issues.

    Thank you both so much for this. You guys have been so encouraging and inspiring to me. I'm 21 and my fiancé is 19 and we are getting married in May. We have been dating almost 5 years. I have always felt judged and sometimes unsupported for being in a committed relationship since high-school and for wanting to get married young. My fiancé and I grew up together and we knew we wanted to get married pretty quick into our dating relationship. We starting dating when I was 16 and he was 15. It's been hard to find people to relate to. I really resonated with what you guys said about your parents sending you to talk to people to basically talk you out of marriage so young. I felt like the same thing happened to me. It's such a blessing to watch you two love and respect each other. It's encouraging that you built a healthy marriage so young in your life, I'm learning so much from you both. I'm very thankful for what you all do. You guys are awesome, thank you for taking the time to share your life with everyone, I know that's not always easy. Love you guys, God bless:)

    Me and my husband got married at 24. We’ve been married now over 32 years never been happier. When you find the right person it just works… the funny thing is our daughters I think give us the most criticism about getting married at 24. They are just getting married at 29 and it’s not because we hold them back. They did that on your own.

    your guys relationship reminds me of my husband and i! we started dating in 2016, said i love you one month into dating, got married in 2018- i was 18 and he was a few months away from being 20. we knew super early into our relationship that we’d get married (our parents also thought we were crazy, especially since i was a senior in high school when i told then 😂) love y’all’s love and family! 🥰

    I absolutly love this! My husband is 26 and I’m 25 we got married in 2015! We were 19 and 18. We met in 2012 my freshman year of highschool, he fell in love with me the first time we talked. I had though he was very cute and very funny and we became best friends! Talked every day for 2-3 months he then asked me out! We were off and on through highschool. Dating other people but still best friends through it all, still constantly talked! He joined the army summer of 2014 right after he graduated highschool. I switched to virtual highschool to get my deploma since I was getting bullied in highschool for us talking about marriage. Everyone started rumors that I was pregnant. I left school. Finished my junior year very quickly!started my senior year in the summer and was graduated on my 18th birthday Dec 2015. I got married 20 days after my 18th birthday. Got my licence 2 months after that and moved from MI to NY with all of our stuff to the townhouse he had found for us to live in where he was stationed. He then deployed for 7 months. He got very sick, got out of the army and We are now living back home in MI in my husbands childhood home with our two children we have a 3 year old and a 4 month old baby. We often think back to the time we had before kids and when we lived in NY even talk about us dating in highschool. It’s really wild to think back on but my heart completely melts every time I think about how young and in love we were❤

    This was a wholesome story , and I genuinely enjoyed it. It’s amazing how i feel how unfiltered it is cause I get it , and you’ve reached a thousand of hearts …. In this social media world, people are being shown that toxic relationships is a new thing but with you , there’s genuine love and respect and patience.. Going through everything with the person you love is definitely worth it ♥️

My husband and I dated 7 years, got married in our 7th year and waited until marriage…that’s a longgg wait. 😂 Can’t wait for next weeks episode. God bless your union. ✨

    Although, we’ve known your story because we have followed you two for a long time, I loved listening to this! We have a similar age / timeline for our marriage and my husbands parents didn’t want us to get married young either. My parents had draw backs but they kind of accepted it haha. We Started dating at 17 our senior year of high school, said I love you after a month, talked about marriage a few days later. We just knew and were committed to marrying each other. Because of our parents we ended up getting married 4 and half years later after I graduated and my husband had 1 more year of school due to a transferring credits issue. I truly do feel like we could have gotten married at least two years before that! But the timing worked out and we grew a lot in our dating relationship. And I totally felt like people judged us getting married young so I understand where Matt was coming from but we simultaneously were so proud to be married. We live in CA and young marriage is not so much the culture here and also it’s super expensive in CA so that comes with it’s own road blocks lol. None of our close college friends are married or even in relationships so we made it a point to join a small group at church with married couples and it’s been such a blessing! But we did see a good number of young married couples in college because we went to a Christian school. And we love you guys because we relate to you and you’re just honest and real! I’m super excited about this podcast even though I’m not much of a podcast person. I totally wish I could be your friend in real life!

    I can relate to you guys on so many levels. My husband and I met when we were 17, engaged at 18 & 19, and then married at 19. We’ve been married now also 3.5 years and we had a baby boy just two-ish weeks after Griffin was born! So cool.
