Kelly6871:  I think your comments were uncalled for and presumptuous. Also, frankly, rude and in poor taste on a 22 and under thread. You yourself admitted you know what YOU were like at 17, don’t presume to know what anyone else is like at any given age. I hope you heed my words and receive them with the respect and calmness with which I type this message, have a wonderful day.

bijoucherie:  our dating anniversary was 04 August, our engagement date was 08 January and so we combined the 2 to create our wedding date 08 August  08 August also happened to be a long weekend! We chose August originally because we wanted a winter wedding (SA) and the rest just fell into place! So nice to hear the random fun details about other people’s journeys! Your date co-inky-dink is just awesome!

Kelly6871:  This comment was not meant for this thread. I see your point, but everyone’s relationship and lives are different. Please take your judging somewhere else. It was not only rude, but uncalled for. This thread was specifically called ’22 and under’, therefore older individuals should not come to judge.

Kelly6871:  I actually agree with you on this and don’t find the way it was phrased being judgemental in the slightest. There’s nothing wrong with someone suggesting waiting a few years and saving up more money in the meantime. If you really do love someone, they’re still going to be there in a couple (or a few, or 5) more years.

Now I myself wouldn’t get married that young as I plan on drinking at my bachelorette party and wedding, but not much can be done if the parties involved are of legal age (which she would be come the given date of November 2016). If they think they’re mature enough to be married, then that’s on them and not up to anyone else to decide. I know a 19 and a 20 year old who just got married last year, and who are more mature, financally stable, and ready for marriage than a 28/32 year old couple that married around the same time.

There’s a difference in being judgemental and simply offering advice. Just because someone advised another person to wait a little bit and it wasn’t kissing butt/telling someone exactly what they want to hear doesn’t make it judgemental or any less of advice.
