I sometimes wonder why eight years ago today nobody stood up and said “I object.” Maybe they were distracted by the domino effect of fainters (three people fainted including the bride – doh!). Anyway, who “let” a twenty-four year old get married?!?
I’d like to think we were mature beyond our years, although I think that is unlikely. Especially since the older I get, the more I realize how little I knew then. I’d like to think it was so obvious our love for each other, which it was by the embarrassing amount we kissed when we watch the video. However the older I become, the more I understand it takes to make a marriage work than just love. We were together a long time prior? Well I know a lot of people whose relationships should have expired by now but are still together. Not sure that’s a good reason to get hitched.
So what is it? How is it that people that love and support us and are not shy to express displeasure with us joined together to celebrate? How is it that Adam nor I woke up one morning and decided that we were children, too young for the responsibility of marriage?!?!
I don’t know what it is but 2 pets, 3 kids, and 2 homes later – here we are. I’d be lying if I said it’s nothing but flowers and rainbows all the time but it’s pretty damn good. So thank you friends and family for not objecting to two children getting married. And thank you Adam for not wising up. Thank you for the greatest eight years and here’s to EIGHTY more, at least 🙂
