- Wedding: March 2011
Mk, maybe not underaged but you get the picture. After reading Miss Ostrich’s post about how people kept riding her ass to get engaged I started thinking about a friend of mine who went through the same thing.. about about my drastically different side of the coin.
Mr. Furry and I got engaged after 2 years of dating. And by the time we get married in March, it’ll be over 4 years. I think that is perfectly reasonable. I am very young. I am quite aware of this. However, I was supposed to graduate college when I was 20 (I graduated high school a year early and loaded down on classes to graduate college a year early as well) I live my life fast and I’ve never been a “kid”. I know what I want and I want it now. I guess I was the same way with being engaged. I never even wanted to get married. When Mr. F used to bring it up i was like, “EWWW marriage!? So you can own me?! I am no one property!”.. then I became a softy. I lcan’t wait to speak our vows infront of god and all our friends and family. Publically displaying everything we know we feel for each other and being held accountable for that love. Having all our friends and family also vow to help us through good times and bad and be there to help us up hold those vows. I’ve never known such a commitment. I find it very special and I sincerely adore it. And I adore him. And he adores me. And he’s 27 (that’s an acceptable age, no?)
People don’t seem to get that. I literally DREAD telling people I’m engaged. The first thing I hear is, “Why?” erm.. because the future hubs and I want to be..? Wtf? Then, “Do you know how young you are?!” OMG you are so right! I am too young to be engaged, here, take this blasted ring off my finger now! Creeps.
In case it wasn’t clear.. I get suppper duper annoyed at this. I’m good at hiding my feelings.. so I wanted to make sure that was clear.
What makes it worse, is that this couple I know got engaged right after we did. A couple that had been together for something like 6 or 7 years.. and they got married before we did (this past October). Everyone was ESTATIC for them. It was all, “OMG CONGRATS!” and “It’s about time!!!” They are afterall, the appropriate age to be getting married. Duh. How could I be so stupid? I find this very annoying. Very very very annoying. It also probably doesn’t help that these people are like perfect. You know those girls that you always want to be? (no.. that’s just me? Damn, oh well) Those girls with big boobs, tiny waists, super attentive perfect boyfriends, perfect life, perfect family, great job, beauty and brains? Well that’s the girl. And the guy? His family is suppper wealthy. I don’t want to say his last name in a public forum but suffice say, if I said his last name you’d recognize it. And his parents bought him a beautiful house.. in the most perfect neighborhood.. where all the homes are different and have their own personality. AAAnd right before they got married.. he totally redid the kitchen. Awesome.
So yeah, I am absolutely green with envy and a horrible person. But Seriously people, LET ME ENJOY MY ENGAGMENT! I deserve to enjoy the “happest time in my life” too right? Or am I not of the appropriate age to enjoy this time? Would you be happier for me if I was say 5 years older? Why? I am a perfectly able minded adult human being and I know exactly what I’m doing.
Anyone else feel like this? Or am I the only youngin’ around these parts?
