Just for reference this might have worked better if you had attached a poll. If you really wanted to establish an average. If you just wanted to be able to say "we are the babies of this group" that seems to have eworked out ok.

We are both 28!
We were 43 and 41, although we originally planned to move here when we were 31 and 29. But the timing just was not right for us at the time.

We were 40(me) & 42 (him) the first time. Then 42 (to the day) & 44 respectively the second time

Him keeps getting told how young-looking he is , no-one ever says anything to me though. So I guess I look like an ole slapper In spirit I'm approx 23

I have always had the feeling there are more of us in the 40+ age bracket, with not very many below 30.

We were 39 and 46
