I started when I was about your age. That was 40 years ago but we still enjoy dancing socially.
You don't say where you are from, but it is likely there are more places to dance than you may think. Don't expect your studio to tell you about other venues though, they want you to stay with them. Outside of the dance schools news of other dances spreads largely by word of mouth, so once you find one, you will find others.
Dancing is fun, and it is something you can do as a couple, but it can also be frustrating and a great place for an argument. My advice would be to try to avoid the blame game. When a step doesn't work it wasn't either of your fault. Just agree to say "WE went wrong, lets try it again!"
One further tip: If a step goes wrong it was probably because the previous step wasn't quite right, so check that one too.
