- Wedding: June 2013
I absolutely hate hearing this! We were 19/21 when we got engaged and will be 21/23 when we get married. We have been together for 4.5 years as of now and will have been together for 6 years when we get married. I have gotten told “You guys are so young! Wait awhile!” I don’t know how many times. I understand that many young people are “too immature to get married,” but it makes me upset that we are being put into this category. We have never broken up, or taken time apart. We are not interested in getting wasted and partying all weekend, or anything like that. We both know what we want in life and both couldn’t imagine being without each other. Any place I am, I want him to be, and vice versa. We are constantly told how much older people think we are, yet practically get scorned for getting married young. The fact that we have waited this long is practically a miracle (we wanted to wait until he had a job and I was done with school). Anyways, he is about to start a job with Edward Jones and I will be an RN a semester after we get married (so they should be happy right?! haha). I’m done trying to prove to people that we are “old enough to get married.” It’s not about them, it’s about what makes us happy!
