Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.
You feel that way about her NOW. The trouble is, when you’re young, you have absolutely NO IDEA who you will later become. When I was 18, I thought I had met the man I was going to marry. I had no idea of the journeys I’d take or the romances I would have in the future. You think you know who you are when you’re young, but trust me, you will change! Hopefully, if you do get married young, you and your partner will grow and change together. It happens. But it’s very rare. Marriage can be an end of freedom when you do it before you’ve had the chance to actually be free.
