We are going to wait atleast untill we graduate college to get married, but hopefully we will get engaged soon. I've just been thinking about it a lot lately, b/c many many girls in my graduating class of nursing school are my age or close to it and are married, some with kids! And several more have gotten engaged lately, including my roommate. And hearing about the members here that have also been lucky in love lately, it just gets me thinking! Anyone feel like sharing?

Don't shoot me now!
If I compare myself at 20 to now (at 31) - I am a totally different person, with different goals and dreams. The chances are, that if I had gotten married when I was younger, it would not have lasted long, we would have grown in opposite directions, and quite possibly ended up hating each other, with kids to boot.
If I think of all the things that I have done in my twenty's, that I would have been unable to do if I was married - I wouldn't trade those expierences (sp?) for anything. I am a much better person now because of it.
But that is just my 2c worth and as they say different strokes for different folks!

Yes, I know!! Very young.
Im 23 now, he is 26.
We have 2 of the smartest, most beautiful little angel girls on this earth.
He (David) thanks me just about everyday for them. As do I to him.
We married very young and I dont recommend it to everyone.
We knew we loved each other and I was pregnant with Laynee (our oldest).
We had been "together" for 2 years before we married. And the 29th of this month will be 6 years married!!!!!
And we love each other more and more everyday.
We were actually both just telling each other last night how lucky we are to have one another.
Here is a picture of us a couple of weeks a go at St.Louis Cardianls' last game in their "old" stadium.
