Hi!! I have been thinking about writing a post like this for a while, and today’s the day! Prepare yourself for some lovey-dovey-ness. You’ve been warned!
In a world where waiting to get married until you’re 30 is quickly becoming the “cool” or respectable thing to do, I’m definitely not a “cool kid.” While I totally get that a lot of people don’t find their person until later in life, I also know there are a lot of people who wouldn’t even consider marriage until later in life. Which is totally fine!!! I don’t want to come off as bashing people who wait to get married when they’re a little older. Trust me, I’ve read a lot of blog posts about finding yourself, becoming financially well-off, etc. being extremely important before tying the knot. I get it! Being a major planner, I completely understand all of this. So, why would I ever want to get married when I’m 22??
I hope this post didn’t rub anyone the wrong way. I just feel like (and hear from peers) that settling down/getting married earlier in life is frowned upon, and sometimes even made-fun-of. I think that everyone just needs to make the best decision for themselves, and do what makes them feel happy and secure. Had I not met my future husband in 8th grade, I might (probably) be in a totally different situation. If you are in a place where you desire a relationship, love being single, or are somewhere in between, I truly believe God will place that person in your life at the right time. Patience truly is a virtue! But you never know what the next season of your life might hold. I thought that sharing my perspective might be helpful/interesting! And wow, I don’t think I have ever written something so mushy/open/emotional. Phew!!! So be easy on me!
What are your thoughts on this subject? Do you think I’m crazy? All (kind) opinions are welcome. 😉
Spreading love and kindness is always a good idea.
