Having said that, we are both in our 30’s. I really think the older you are, the more you know yourself and the less time it takes to know whether you are making the right decision.
I think you might have a point there. As you get older you start to see your life pass before you, and if you want something, you see that you have less and less time to get it.
No, you missed my point. My point is that when you are older you know who you are better than you did when you were younger. At 18, I was still growing up and I am not now the person I was then. It would certainly have been more difficult had I been married then as I was changing and still growing up at that time.
As far as less and less time to get what I want, well, I still think I have plenty of time to get everything I want (that I haven’t gotten yet ).
I WAS different when I was 18… But I find that if you grow TOGETHER… then you always have your best friend to lean on as you run into lifes challenges and changes… birth, money, houses, cars, stress, children in school, college…etc… and then retirement.
