Well my little sister is only 17 and the other is 6….so I’m not sure about them (trust me I hope the 17 year old is married first). Anyways, I live with my bf but I made him ask my father and everything lol. My other 2 siblings had kids first, and they still aren’t married, and my mom had my brother at 16 so her and my dad didn’t exactly go the “traditional” route.

Darling Husband and I are pretty normal on my side of the family, but on his we are definitely the traditional, conventional ones. He’s an only child but his cousins all had children out of wedlock/are married to people other than their children’s bio parent/always have dramas. They are lovely people but yes we feel very boring next to them!

I am the traditional one in my family. You know how most families have black sheeps? Well I’m the white sheep in a family full of black sheeps. My boyfriend is the blacksheep in a family full of white sheeps so it kinda smooths out.

I was just thinking a little while ago… There are girls everywhere that become engaged after just weeks of meeting a man. They are married a month later and their new lives begin… But those relationships hardly ever actually make it, it kind of gives me a greater appreciation for waiting.


The fact that you know when the question is asked and when you do become engaged makes it that much more real and honest. It’s my opinion that the longer you are together before and during the engagement the better your chances of getting married. He knows way more about you now then he did when you were only dating a couple months. Would your family prefer you become a single mother and divorced 5 years from now or to hold off and wait for the right man so it will last? I’d say the second one. So if they’re bugging you about getting married, just say “We have our whole lives together, I don’t feel there is a need to rush into it when I know we’ve got the rest of our lives to do it”


Just my opinion though… If it makes sense
