I'm opposed to marriage.
I am 20 years old and am very independent and career driven with no interest in marriage or children.
My mum is obsessed (understatement) with weddings and she's always saying things like "baby I'm going to use this color for your wedding" etc.
She saves EVERY wedding magazine/picture and tapes wedding things on t.v.
My mum is an absolute darling and I love her very much but when ever she brings this subject up I get irate!
I've been telling her I'm a lesbian (even though I'm not) (lol) but it doesn't work...she doesn't believe me. (rightly so)
Why won't she let it go!?!?!
Where does this obsession come from?!?!?!
Is anyone else's mother this nuts?!?!
They've been together for 32 years and are very happy.
She did have a small-ish wedding but it was still very beautiful.

Weddings are a beautiful time in a couple's life, but they are nothing to be rushed into. My mom always told me to take my time and find the guy I truly love. She first married at 20 and he was a real jackass who cheated on her. She divorced after two years and was single from 22 to 38 when she met my dad and was best friends for 12 years working together then finally married both at 38 and had me at 40. He was the best husband to my mom and the best dad I could ever ask for. I'll always love him and cherish all 18 years I had with him. He's forever missed and will never be replaced. God bless you daddy. (R.I.P. Thomas J. Berger- September 19th, 1951- April 19, 2010). It's sad how so many kids don't spend as much time with their parents as they should. You never know when you might lose them.1
