I literally would spend all day at a computer looking up rings and dresses and anything and everything wedding related if I had the time. I’m obsessed with the idea of getting married, and as more time passes, my fever worsens! I’ve only recently chilled out about nagging my SO. Lol! It’s been hard not bringing it up though. I really wish I had more control over my longing to be a Mrs., but I can’t help my obsession and building frustration and anxiousness!!! I mean, I’ve been with this man for just shy of 4 years, and we have 2 kids! We’re both only 21, but I swear I feel like I’m in my 30s or 40s. Lol! I know I’m not the only one out there like this, right? Advice before I completely lose it?!!

a marriage is the last thing you want to rush. I was married when I was 21 ( almost 22) and while its been two years and we are probably happier together than I could ever have imagined, I kind of wish I would have waited til maybe even this year to get married. I thought we were mature, we owned a house, we had amazing jobs and great incomes but looking back… I have grown sooo much in the 2 years since then. Things I thought I wanted have changed, our lives are completely different now. Luckily we both grew in the same way but as someone who was married young there honestly is no reason to get married young haha I can see now why the divorce rate is so high for young people ( I don’t think my DH and I are one of them though lol) honestly just daydream get an idea of what you want but chill for a little bit until your older and matured more. Then again your an adult so you can do whatever you please! Haha 🙂

@Future_MrsReeves: hahaha i LOVE your enthusiasm, I really do 🙂 I’ve wanted to get married since I was your age…and now I’m 30 and my wedding cravings have reached a SERIOUS FEVER PITCH. Just try to enjoy being young. I know that right now, and I mean this-You are an adult. You are in a relationship, you do want to get married…but seriously, you are 21 ONCE. You are 23, 24, 25 ONCE.
Now that I’m 30, well, I honestly wish I could go back and do it again. Go out a little more, party more. I live in a college town, and I have tried the whole “I’m not getting any younger, I’m not getting married, let’s go out” and TRUST ME….30 isn’t that much older than 21 but you DO feel the difference when you are out with young hot girls grabbing at your SOs butt haha. I am feeling like, well, I wish I could go back and be those girls, enjoy 21 and that zest for life. Marriage isn’t going anywhere, life isn’t going anywere and honestly…My BF I was with at 21, who I was living with, and wanted to get married…we were together 6 years and EVERYTHING…well it ended in a restraining order and I couldn’t be more relieved that we didn’t get married. I’M NOT SAYING that will happen to you, of course, but, well, sometimes we have to just enjoy life and be happy for small favors in life.
Good luck lady!

I dunno, I just give in when I feel that way… I did it way before we were engaged. I did it before I even felt ready to get married: I knew I didn’t want to get married yet, I just really liked wedding stuff.
I don’t work long hours, and I have enough free time to do silly things like that, so as long as it’s not hurting you I don’t see why you shouldn’t pinterest your heart out. ;D Just keep quiet and take it out on us instead of him and you’re golden!
