Getting married when you are "old"

I gotta say, there are a lot of advantages to getting married when you are not just entering adulthood. As we've watched kids around us get married, one of the biggest benefits to getting married later is money and your budget.

When HP and I sit down to talk about money and budgeting, our discussions are more along the lines of how quickly we are paying off our house rather than do we get ramen this week or can we splurge on "cup-o-noodles." We've passed the cup-o-noodles stage of life. We got through it on our own. If the worst happens and we're back there again, we'll already know how to get through it. And that's definitely a big benefit.
