Were you excited to marry him or were you excited to have a wedding???
So many girls fall into the "I just want to have a wedding" trap.
You're 23 you're a baby!!!!! You're not "getting left on the shelf", there's no rush!!
Take your time, you have a good job, go travel, buy a house for yourself and get a boyfriend that adores you.
If you 2 really loved each other this situation would not have come up - you will know that when you find your perfect partner!
The fact that you're upset about paying all the bills and you want to marry because you don't want to be paying for someone you're not gonna spend the rest of your life with is just not right at all.
Money should not come into the marriage equation at all - you do not get married because of who provides the money!
Btw all of my friends who got married in their early 20ties are now divorced - they all though they would be together forever
Would you rather be 23 and single or 30 and divorced already??
People change a lot in their mid to late 20ties and priorities really change, people grow up and often just grow apart!!
LOL My other half just yelled out 'Tell her no one should get married before they're 30"
LOL (he's 36 and divorced from his first wife who he married in his early20ties)
