I'm getting married whether you like it or not

Posted Thursday, February 12, 2009, at 11:56 AM

There is something that has been eating me inside for a couple months now. That is the constant negativity surrounding me and my decision to get married.

Ever since I decided that I wanted to get married, even before I proposed, people around me have been trying to talk me out of it. I have had people tell me, "you're making a huge mistake" or "being married is great for the first couple years." Frankly I'm sick of it.

I firmly stand by my decision to get married to the woman of my dreams.

When people make comments about how getting married is a mistake, I wonder what it was that made them so unhappy. Do they regret getting married? Did they get married for the wrong reasons? Did they marry the wrong person? What is it that would make them so unhappy that they would be driven to discourage others from experiencing that new chapter of life?

If you are one of these people, I suggest you take a good hard look at yourself and your relationship. Find what it is that makes you so unhappy and fix it. It is never too late. I'm not a relationship counselor or anything, but I do believe in humanity and the kindness that is everyone's hearts.

I love my fiancÚ and I am excited to be spending the rest of my life with her. I am confident enough in my decisions and my feelings that I have nothing to worry about. So to those nay-sayers regarding marriage ... leave me alone. You cannot talk me out of loving my fiancÚ and wanting to get married. Go find some one else to bother.

Don't listen to Mr. Silvers.

He tried to rain on my marriage parade.

Being wed to the your soul mate is the absolute best thing a person can experience.

You go for it, and be happy, the love of my life passed away back in 82, I do not regret for one moment the time we had together, just wish it could have been for eternity.

Be happy, and know that there are good and bad times, but keep a smile on your face thru the bad times, and love in your heart, and you will make it.
