A Marriage Riddle

When first the marriage knot was tied between my wife and me

Her age did mine as far exceed, as three plus three exceeds three

But when three years and half three years we man and wife had been

Our ages were in ratio then as twelve is to thirteen

How old were they on their wedding day?
