Why I Do Not Regret Marrying Young
It will be so hard for me to fail to recall sitting across from my department’s dean just a week away from my graduation. This was just a week after I had celebrated my 21st birthday. In as much as I was just in my third year in college, I had gained enough credits to allow me graduate. In fact I had been inside her office where she admired my capability to cram a whole year’s worth of coursework within a very short period. She was of the view that I had rushed through in pursuit of starting my master’s program quite early. She however had not realized that I had been engaged for over seven months now and plans for the wedding were in the pipeline. This is now the time that I told her that I was getting married just before she could hand me my folder.
It is not hard to understand why she could not say anything. This is based on the fact that a good number of people are of the opinion that your twenties are reserved for your associates. This is now the time that you will have to learn more about yourself and traveling. It is now the time to understand who you truly are. I however wanted to see to all these with my partner. I met my partner when he was a sophomore while I was in high school. We actually conversed online for a while before he eventually requested me out for a dinner. We soon become a thing and this was no time to look back. You will learn that we were actually immature and insecure at first. You will note that jealousy will only breed contempt. We indeed never ever split up.
By the time we were getting married, he was twenty two while I was twenty one. It is now close to a decade that has been full of memories. I have helped him do a lot of things like training for marathons and even discover his inherent ability to cook. We have actually switched careers over six times now. We have had two babies that we so dearly cherish together. It is just two weeks away from us celebrating ten years of this wedded bliss and fifteen years of being together.
I have never ever regretted the decision to marry at an early stage in life. We actually knew we were meant for one another right from the beginning. There was no point of getting whatever out of my system. He also found it fit not to fall vulnerable to sowing wild oats. There was no need to rush things. It was actually the best choice for us.
