the dilemma of it all

"You see, sir, I'm only in my early twenties --"

"Which I'm well aware of --"

"And that's much too young to even consider the concept of settling down --"

"You know I agree --"

"I mean, I've never even wanted to see myself married until I've reached at least - at least twenty eight."

"Well, you must know I'd never dream of --" 


"Wouldn't you say that's the perfect age to be married?  Twenty eight?"

"Why, yes, I'd say it's a fine age --"

"Nobody would doubt that you were ready for it.  Nobody could call you foolish for getting married at twenty eight.  It's the perfect age to be making a decision like that --"

"So you've said --"

"But I do have just one problem."

"And what is that?"

"It's inevitable for me to admit, at some point, that I love you."

"Well, dear, I'm facing a similar dilemma myself."

"And what is that?"

"I love you, too."

  2. This is cute! Getting married young isn't always a bad thing. You learn and grow together, but it sure can be scary when you make that decision

    1. True, I actually think it's a pretty good thing. (And...seeing as we're Mormon, this view is probably not surprising! haha) My husband and I were just both never planning on getting married very early. We wanted to wait and explore life a bit. But then we fell in love and there went that! So I wrote this because I was thinking about it today. But, yes, young marriage can be a great thing.
