@alishaloo:  I don’t mean to thread jack but I was just wondering how you personally felt with your decision? Besides your parents being upset, were you perfectly comfortable living together before the wedding? Or since you mention you wish you hadn’t, were you uncertain about this?

@Blush.Champagne:  I was super excited for it and I loved it and we actually broke up about 9 months into it and then of course got back together- I wonder if that would have happend ( and it needed to happen it fixed everything!) so I don’t know if I would go back and change it but if I could know it would still be fixed as long as we could not. I would love to have been excited to wake up to him every day and figure out everything as newly weds.

We hung out with another couple the other night who has beeen married for a year and they are still figuring things out ( not that DH and I are not ) but we’ve been living together for 2 years so it just changes alot.

Also I think it really hurt me spirtually beacuse I was very religious before and then I was ashamed to go to church  afte ra while and people started finding out and now I’m just a confused hot mess.

 

BUT

this is just my personal story.

Hrm – I don’t really have this experience, but a few of my friends have.  They got married in a small/private/secret religious ceremony and then moved in together and waited until they were ready for the actual big ceremony/reception.

@alishaloo:  Wow! I totally had to edit that post. Thanks I-Phone for embarrassing me lol. 

Thank you for sharing your experience. The religious aspect is what I was more so curious about because even if my parents were supportive of it or at the least were not upset, I myself may feel a bit guilty just because of my upbringing. Anyway, thank you for sharing!

@Blush.Champagne:  your welcome.

how long do you have to wait before you get married?

If its under a year I’m going to say I would suggest to wait! but if its over a year I really don’t know and say its your choice!

 

Guilt can be a big black bitch!
