This weekend one of my closest friends is getting married. We have been friends since primary school and although we drifted apart for a couple of years we have been lucky enough to become best friends once again and I can’t imagine my life without her. There’s only one thing… I am now at an age where my friends are getting married and moving on in their lives and I keep getting told I’m next!!
Yes I full intend on getting married and yes I’m exciting for all of those kind of things to come but I do wish people would stop telling me I’m next; As if it’s a disease that is looming over me! I think the problem is mainly the older generation and older family but I’m quite modern with my way of thinking and am not bothered when I get married because I know I will do at some point! I also know that I won’t be having a conventional wedding as I just want it to be one big party with all the people I love around me.
Me and Rowan have been together for 5 years this November and I think people find it hard to comprehend that we aren’t already planning our wedding and our whole life out. At the end of the day we are only 22 and 23 so it’s not like we are running out of time to settle down but there’s so much to do before we start doing that!
What I think I’m trying to say is that people can do what they want and we’re not any different. We don’t need to get married because society thinks we should or to please anyone and I’m so glad that we are both on the same page when it comes to marriage. It needs to be about the two people, not everyone else which, sadly, I think happens far to much!
