My group is mostly early twenties, which is why we find it fascinating that there are those in our ranks who are willing to commit so early in life. So it’s a favoured conversation topic; what age is matured enough to do the walk down the aisle, church vs courthouse vs elopement, budget, themes, dress, guest list, catering, etc... it’s so strange hearing what everyone has already planned for that one day (bear in mind we are not passing judgement on those doing this thing in reality, just imagining) even I have been thinking.
If (it’s a fucking huge if) I was to ever get married I’d want to elope, wear that little white dress in my wardrobe and when we’d return home invite everyone out to dinner and just announce it. No engagement ring or party or bachelorette night.
Then again, it would have to be an amazing offer to convince me to marry. I’d also need a boyfriend for it to be remotely possible. I don’t feel like it would happen for me and I’m not afraid of being an old maid (even if sometimes I crave male affection) and I’m happy being me (single girl) for the rest of my natural life (not thinking about kids yet).
Congratulations to those brave enough to put a ring on it, but I’m going to run every time I hear the church bells toll.
