I'm in love with you two, haha (in a non-creepy way).
Whenever I tell people we're engaged and how old we are they immediately freak out. They always tell me I'm too young and I need to get out in the world, and the one I hate is "you don't know what love is at your age". I've been in college, and have met so many people, I still am madly in love. We never have major fights and in out four years haven't even talked about having a break.
I'm proud of you three =)
Yeah, we got that all the time. We always told ourselves we'd just prove them wrong and so far, we have and we intend to continue doing so. I was able to experience the world, I was just able to share those experiences with a person I am in love with.
It's somewhat strange, call it intuition, but at age 16 I could tell you I would spend the rest of my life with my husband. Granted, I was in no way ready to marry him, but I knew in my heart that together was where we were supposed to be.
Now, throughout the years we've experienced our fair share of changes. I won't deny that people change as they age and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. For us, it only brought us closer. He has deployed multiple times to Iraq and of course, it has changed him. However, it did nothing bad to our relationship, instead it brought us MUCH closer together.
I used to become irritated with the people who told me whatever. But looking back I think I've come to realize they were uncomfortable with our happiness and weren't happy themselves, so they would try to bring us down. A huge part of me feels so bad for some of these people (friends, family, coworkers - all of different ages) because if only they could realize that happiness IS out there, they just have to be a bit less pessimistic about love.
