- Wedding: October 2013
@PenultimateWhisk: My God Daughter recently got married at 21. (Side bar note-I’m 37 and was also recently married. Both of us had first-time marriages within 2 months of the other. It was super fun to plan together!)
Anyway, she got a LOT of feedback that she should wait to get married. Her mother vented to me about it, and she said she wished she would wait a few years, etc. I told her mother that life is short and can go by so fast. And, that I’ve never seen her daughter so happy! It’s a horrible thought, but what if she or he isn’t here in a few years? Focus on your daughter being happy in the moment, and let whatever happens happen. Be happy with her.
Additionally, I didn’t tell her mother this, but I aggreed with her! 🙂 Being single and standing on my own taught me so much about myself and life in general. If my God Daughter had asked my opinion, I would have suggested she wait a while. But, she didn’t ask, so I didn’t give it. I supported her decision without giving her any negative feedback. : )
