Everyone's getting MARRIED!!!!!
« on: July 26, 2004, 12:10:14 PM »

Oh my gosh... I just talked to a HS friend, and no less than 7 people from our class are getting married (4 are a couple).
We graduated from Arlington HS in 2000, so most of them graduated from college last May, but still.  I'm in law school right now, and I don't feel anywhere near mature enough to get hitched.

I just thought it'd be interesting to ask some of our younger members when they foresee themselves getting married, our older members, how they knew it was time to get married, and those my age, ARE YOU RUNNING FOR YOUR LIFE? ? ? ?

I'm 24.  I got married at 22.  When it's the right one, and you know you're a better person and more... YOURSELF, you know it's right.  When you've found the right one what's the point in waiting?  Of course, being very religious, I have very strict rules about what you can do while you're dating/engaged, and what has to wait until you're married.  *grins/blushes*  That sort of takes the desire to wait for marriage right out of the equation if you ask me.  ;)  We were engaged for five months and two days.  I hear that's kind of short.

I have a friend who just graduated, and she's getting married and moving to California. Maybe she already did. She's 18.

My dad got married when he was 18, divorced when he was 18, married again when he was 18, and divorced when he was 19. Then he let off for a few years before marrying my mom. ^__^

Me? I don't plan on getting married. I've never felt the need for a dating relationship. Not having kids either. I'm going to live alone. Some people find that sad, but not me. It's just a waste of time and a bunch of drama that I don't need, IMHO.

Don't know about getting married, but I'm definitely not having kids. The thought of going through 9 months of living heck while your body balloons and then spending the next couple of decades babysitting is not something that sits well with me.

If the right guy comes along, then sure, marriage is fine ... if not, that's ok too, because I'm perfectly fine on my own. *shrugs*

Im not so sure about the marage thing. ive got a really steady GF right now, but recently our friends threw us a surprize aniversary party, and it made us feel uncomphortable. Being in high school and having everyone see you as a sure thing, probably going to grow up and get maried, is really wierd. i dont enjoy that feeling, and as such, my opinions on marage have taken a turn for the worse right about now. im not looking for it, and im not even thinking about it.

As the voice of age and experience, let me tell you.....

DON'T GET MARRIED JUST TO GET MARRIED.

It's a nightmare that you never quite wake up from.

(Me?  Am I married?  You'll have to decide for yourself....)

I'm planning on getting married in about 2 1/2 years. Course he wants it sooner but any sooner than that and it scares me.  somethings have to happen first though which I'm willing to wait.  I'm in no big hurry.
