Happily Married.. Really?

I shouldn’t be so surprised anymore when I catch up with old friends (hookups/whatnot) I haven’t seen in a long time and they tell me they’re married. This mindset of mine should be fixed that I’m not in high school anymore, I’m not even in uni anymore. I’m so close to entering the “mid-20s” stage and everyone around me is gradually tying the knot (and having kids). Not only friends but even the cousins I grew up with are building their own families and sometimes I ask myself where it leaves me, am I really that idle? Then again, if I’m happy with the way I live my life then it shouldn’t be a problem.

Speaking of weddings, one of my good friends from high school is getting married this weekend. They’re both only 21. I’m really happy they found each other but at the same time I can’t help but think about how young they are. Ever since I graduated a year ago I’ve already attended 2 weddings of uni friends and classmates but they were different because 1st wedding, the bride was already pregnant and the 2nd wedding, I didn’t know she was entering her late 20s already (I thought we were the same age since we were in some classes together).

My point is, my judgements can’t really be justified unless I get into it myself or feel it firsthand. The time will come, eventually.

  1. Young marriages are apparently becoming more and more popular (according to some articles I’ve read anyway). I know about five girls from my high school graduating class who are already married. Thank god none of my close friends are like that – they’re too personally motivated to achieve other things that marriage isn’t even on the agenda. 😛
