- Wedding: May 2012
First I would like to say how much I love this website! Just discovered it a few days ago.
Now I would like to rant. Ok so my fiances family is VERY religious, like bible thumping shove a cross down your throat religious. So we got pregnant when I was 17 and he was 19 by idiocy of not using a condom. We now have an AMAZING 3 year old son, still love eachother so much and are finally planning our wedding after a 3 year engagement.
His parents have been pushing and pushing for us to get married since they found out I was pregnant because apparently the “right thing to do” is to get married right away to cover up the fact that you had sex before marriage. i am in complete disagreeance. The ONLY reason to EVER get married is because you love eachother and want to spend the rest of your lives together.
So we love eachother and have plans for the future and we are finally planning our wedding. The reason we didnt get married right away, well its several reasons. 1. I was 17! 2. I don’t agree with his parents and kind of secretly wanted to piss them off. 3. I knew I wanted to marry my fiance and spend our lives together, but we weren’t ready to actually be married. 4. MONEY, we can now (barely) afford to have a real wedding, not in vegas and not in a backyard, and MOST definitely not in a church.
So now to the point of why I feel the need to rant. His parents are telling everyone that were “doing the right thing” OMG I hate when they say that. It makes my skin crawl. i just want to scream in their faces “We aren’t getting marride because we had a kid, we are getting married because we love eachother!! This isn’t “the right thing to do” this is what WE WANT TO DO!”
Anyone understand this feeling.
Oh and I’m not athiest or anything, I believe in GOd and Jesus as the messiah, I just don’t belive that you go around shoving beliefs down peoples throats and telling people what “the right thing to do” is.
