Too Young to Get Married?

26 years ago today, I was 22 years old and willing to (politely) ignore the advice offered by my parents that perhaps it would be best to wait until after I completed law school to get married.

That may be the one and only time I ignored my parents' advice and had things work out for the best.

It's been a like a long drive on mountain roads - lots of unexpected turns, a few scary moments, and astounding vistas. It's even wilder when you have two drivers, but we've been fortunate to mostly agree on the directions. And I count myself incredibly lucky that she's been the one who agreed to start the journey with me 26 years ago today.

And, by the way, hell yes we were too young to get married! Look at us! We were children!

You're just saying that with the hopes that your daughter doesn't get any ideas in her head too early! Ha!

Congratulations on 26 years!

Congratulations! I got married at 20, also against my parents' advice. My situation unfortunately ended after 17 years of trying to make it work. I'm glad you and your wife have been successful together. Happy anniversary!
