- Wedding: March 2010
i’m really curious about your opinion on this matter. I went out to see my family in Christmas day and I found out that my new divorced uncle just got engaged. They just started dating a month and a half ago and a lot of people are worried it is way too soon. I know they are doing it out of concern for my uncle seeing as how his ex-wife is still causing problems in his life (I’m not sure if the divorce is complete or not). I just feel like from my point of view my uncle is in his forties and so is his bride-to-be, they know what they want in life, so who am I to judge them to see if they are making the right decision. I don’t know them that well and she seems lovely. i know she is a little strongwilled but she doesn’t seem like that’s a negative about her. I’m happy for him that he’s so happy and I hope that everything in the future works out.
But i guess I’m curious, would you have just left the room when everyone started joining in after he left about how they thought it was too soon? I told them that ‘when you know you just know’ and left it at that. I know a lot of them were concerned with the fact that it’s obvious that she and he both want different things and have different personalities when coming into this marriage, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work it out and find common ground. I know there are things they haven’t talked about yet that are probably very important but I’m hoping that at this stage everything works out for the best. I just felt bad talking about him behind his back. i really do just want the best for both of them as they deserve it. They are both extremely sweet.
