Married at 23

3 years ago

I have seen a few post like this and it inspired me to write my own. Everyone has read the post online once or twice about why you shouldn't get married in your twenties or what you should do while you are young. Well I am happy that I got married at 23 years old. I am turning 27 this year and will be married 4 years in May. It was the best decision in my life so far and I will never regret. Is my life a fairy tale? No. Nobody has that. Our we perfect? Not by any means but I am so much happier being married at 23 and having things somewhat figured out.

Being married at 23 I have learned a good bit. I have learned loss with my husband by my side. I couldn't have went through that with out him. I have learned how to love with him. I have learned what it is like to be a responsible adult. I have learned how to have fun as an adult and how it is okay to let my hair down as I am still in my 20's. I have learned how to have patience with my husband, friends and my self. I have learned financial responsibility.

It is okay to be married in your 20's...if it is for you. It is not for everyone. It is not a taboo or a bad thing to be married. If you are married, in your 20's it does not mean you have to kids or that you can not have fun. You can still go out and have fun and see your friends. You can have your guys or girls not without your spouse. In fact..I encourage it. It helps your marriage to have time apart every now and then.

Marriage is not a prison or a curse. It is a blessing. I am so glad to be able to have found someone earlier on in my life. I am a lucky person to have found the person I get to spend the rest of my life with. We are able to have fun together, we have great friends, we are growing together as a couple and as our own individuals selves. Everyday we are growing and learning even after 4 years of marriage. We, as a couple and individuals, learn something new every day and we will continue to learn in our marriage.

Being married in your 20's is not a bad thing. It is a great thing. People try to act like it is a curse or being tied down and that you can not do anything anymore. You can still do anything you want. If you want to go out and party, YOU CAN! You can do anything a single person wants, except your married and you do it with spouse. It is not that complicated.

Plus I get to come home every night and see someone who loves me, kisses me and hugs me when I walk in the door and..I get to have sex with him whenever I want! Who wouldn't want that?
