I married very young. Thus, i was barely aware of how married life would be and yet i took the plunge. Do i regret it? No.

There are actually advantages of marrying early. One of them is seeing my kids grow while i still grow on my own. I can relate to them because there is not so huge age or generation gap. I like what they do and vice versa. I can also see them off on their own while i am still young. Based on my calculations, i will be a grandma at my late 4o's. Yeah that is true because at around 48 my eldest will be 25-26 and my youngest will be 21. So by the time i am about early or mid 50's, i can retire. LOL.

However, what i do not perceive to be the advantage of marrying young is that it is hard to establish a career. While others can spend their time at work planning a promotion or getting another degree, i was giving births to my babies, rearing toddlers and walking like zombie at work due to lack of sleep when babies were cranky!

Well, that's my 2 cents worth of thoughts for now.

    don't feel bad about marrying young...life is what it is...and it's what we make of it that counts...
    You have made a wonderful life for your husband and three girls...so rejoice in that fact...and look forward to what God has in store for your future...and enjoy the here and now with your children as they go through their different stages... because they will be grown very quickly!!
    I think your 2 cents worth was worth reading...
    Love,'
