@futuremrsmartin11: Just ignore her. She is only a couple of years older than you and got married younger than you. How can she pass judgement?

P.S. People tell me that I look younger than I am all of the time. I take it as a compliment.Smile

People just need to live and let live. I know its a hard practice to follow, but seriously!

Everyone probably seems young to her if she has three kiddos already at 23.

as someone who is older i often think it (oh you are so young) but ive never said it outloud and where im coming from is that i see a person (example you, not yet 20) and im thinking you have your entire life to live, you should be travelling the world and exploring and going to school and having fun etc – i feel this way because i may have seen/experienced more than the young person in front of me

of course the person im thinking this about might have plans to do these things but with their husband so im way off base – hence why i keep my thougths to myself

im wondering if the person that said you were young was thinking of their life when they said it, 23yrs and 3 kids is hard work

I agree with you! I hope I continue to look younger than others my age so that when were all 50 I look 35 or 40!

I can see where you are coming from. I am 19 and this up coming year is when we plan to announce our engagment. When i tell people iI get the same thing and alot of the” you should wait a little longer” or the worste(coming form my cousin) ” sllep around a bit and see if you feel the same” It tends to get very annoying.  I also agree with you on the kids thing, I want kids around 24 so i can be done by 30. But with people like that i just leanred that that’s their opinion and everyone is entitled to one.

It’s all about you, your fiance, and what makes you happy. if you guys know you are ready to make the big plunge, then more power to ya!

Hahaha that’s great! In my opinion it just matters how much you know eachother and how long you’ve known eachother. I have a cousin who proposed to his girlfriend after 1 year of dating and it is a long distance relationship which we all think he should have waited till they see eachother day to day and not one week every 6 months , but oh well

I don’t really get what this post means. Were you offnded by the judgment, or confused about the fact that she said something to you, even though she did it, making her a hypocrit? Because in my opinion, at least she said something! You judged her as well, BEFORE she said anything. So if you were offended by the judgment, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

People will always have something to say about you getting married. It stinks because I’ve gotten strange comments too, but it’s just one of those things that so many people do. Is it their place? No, but there really isn’t anything you can do but brush it off your shoulders. As long as you know that what you are doing is what you should be doing then don’t worry what other people think, especially about your marraige. ๐Ÿ™‚
