Recently I have known people who have gotten engaged. At least one person (though usually more) has a response of FINALLY!
Sometimes when someone decides to have a baby, the response is FINALLY!
Really, is that necessary?
If someone wants to get married or not, have a baby or not, shouldn’t that be their business?
There are a multitude of reasons why people FINALLY get married, move in together, get engaged, have a baby, buy a house or whatever. These are all major commitments, which shouldn’t be taken lightly. I believe these type of life decisions should be made with an informed and educated decision.
I have to admit that years ago when a girlfriend told me that she and her boyfriend had gotten engaged my response was FINALLY! Guh! I can’t believe that I said that.
I am a child of divorce … many divorces.
Which means I take marriage seriously and I would never jump into a marriage before I was ready. Not when anyone else was ready, but when I was ready! (And, of course, The Husband had to be ready as well.)
OK, that was my soapbox rant. Aren’t you glad Go Fit Girl! is back posting regularly?
And Congrats to all my recently engaged, pregnant, married, new homeowner friends …
