Kinda? When I was little and played with my Barbies I always made them get married when they were 25. Such a comfortable age to me, one that I imagined was perfect age for marriage. And I always made it a summer wedding. 

I’ll be married in six months, early summertime – I’ll be 26 🙂 So I guess it’s not horribly off! I was really little though, so I think it’s a coincidence XD

chelbell23 :  I thought the EXACT same thing; same with teachers sleeping in the hallways at school/not having a life outside our classroom.

Funny enough, the three immediate couples on my mom’s side of the family were all married in years ending with 9: grandparents were married in 1959, mom and dad were married in 1989, and aunt and uncle were married in 1999. When I was a preteen, I was DETERMINED to be married in a “9” year to keep up the tradition. I figured 2019 would have to do since I’d still be in high school in 2009 and 2029 just seemed way too late in my young mind. My SO and I have not been together long enough to be married this year, in our opinion. However, he jokes it’s going to be “this year or 10 years from now–nowhere in between!”
