mendingbee :  I honestly can’t really think of anything (besides like PP, getting more pets!), travel has always been a big thing for me and I’ve actually done a ton more since being with my husband. 

Anything that I want to do (within reason), I can do while married

I wish I had studied abroad while in college and done some backpacking. That’s more of an age thing than a relationship status thing though…it’s my one regret from college. 

I also wish I’d purchased a king size bed to bring into the relationship, because now I can’t convince Fiance that it’s worth the money and I am craving space to spread out!


We didn’t start dating until I was 26, so really, I have no regrets. I had gotten two degrees and lived alone (without roommates) for several years. I’m super, super glad I lived alone for as long as I did, I think it’s a fundamentally important experience.

mendingbee :  I wish I’d had the stones to travel to some other countries, assuming the funds were there. There are places I know he’d never consider visiting that I’d like to see. However he’d also never hold me back if I wanted to do it when it becomes practical again. He just wouldn’t join me.

I met my Darling Husband when I was 20 and then after college moved to his home state so my one wish is that I could have lived in some other places first. I always wanted to move around, maybe live in Paris for a while, NYC, somewhere with mountains. Now that we’re settled down with jobs and family nearby, that’s not really an option.

I wish I would’ve not pushed many friends away. Now, it’s trickier maintaining some of those lsot frienships.

I wish I had lived “in” the city. I went to college in a college town so there was no “city” and married my first husband immediately, and we lived in the suburbs for our entire marriage. After we divorced, I kept the kids, so living “in the city” and moving the kids out of the suburbs was not an option I was willing to consider. I think it would’ve been fun to live in an apartment in the middle of everything for a few years before moving out to the suburbs.

  • Wedding: London, UK

Studied abroad (though I was actually going to do this and I got together with my fiance during the time I would have been abroad, if I hadn’t pulled out of the programme) and been a camp counsellor. I’m in the UK so Camp America is a big expensive 10ish week programme and not something I’d do now.

Honestly, nothing. My husband and I didn’t start dating til I was 28 so I had plenty of time to have my fun single time. Plus there really isn’t anything that I CAN’T do now anyway even though I’m married. I don’t travel much anymore but that’s because we have a toddler, not because I’m not single.

I got to travel quite a bit and have some wonderful adventures when I was single. I do wish I’d managed to do those AND also pay off my student loans. For me, it’s more that I wish I’d done it before having a child than before being with my husband, though. It would have made the transition to motherhood much easier in many ways.

I wish I’d traveled more before marriage and children. Mostly because I discovered I was pregnant shortly after my first marriage, surprise!

I was single for so long, there’s nothing I wish that I did. I’ve traveled alone and with friends and my favorite is traveling with my partner. I was able to achieve things in my career and got my education. l eliminated my debt and was able to save for all the things that I hoped I would one day have like wedding and a house. I havent quite made it to our wedding date, but I know I won’t have any regrets.
