Mind Your Business

It's my day off. I'm drinking a glass of wine before 5 pm and the only thing on my mind is how people can't mind their own business.
Okay, I confess.. I can't get a little "ohhh.. what happened?" .. and "wow.. she really said that?" . Yeah. I do that from time to time. But there is something about someone who likes to put their opinion where its not needed that really bothers me.

I'm engaged to my best friend. He is seriously the best thing and whenever I see him, think of him, hear about him - I get all happy and googily eyed. It's sickening, in the best way possible. And yes, I'm only 24. A baby some would say. And recently, I've been hearing a lot of -

"Wow girl, you're way too young to get married."
"Don't do it! You're such a baby." 
"You have your whole twenties in front of you to experience. Why would you want to get married?"
"Are you sure you want to do this?"

What. The. F. 
Talk about putting a damper on a super exciting time in my life. 
These are real questions people have asked me in the two months I've been engaged.

I get it - marriage is work. You have to put time, effort, everything you've got to make it work. I get that. But the constant questioning of my decision to get married to the man I love has got to stop.
Don't put your marriage hardships on me. Please.

And if you're one of those people to ask those questions up there - please think before you talk. You could very well be discouraging a really good thing.

Thank you.
