Merry Christmas everybody! I have to admit, this year for me was great/terrible...
My boyfriend of almost three years gave me an engagement ring in front of his entire family @ exactly 12:25am on December 25th. Best moment ever, the ring is amazing. I was happy, he was happy,the family was happy. I cried, I was so shocked.
The moment I got home, my family found out about the engagement and they were ANGRY. First off, my boyfriend and I are young, a mere 21 years old and still attending University. The reaction from my aunt struck me, I was absolutely depressed the entire day. I didn't eat all day. I was expecting them to be excited, but instead I was being called a fool, an idiot, ect. My aunts about 33 and never been engaged or married.
The thing that hurts the most is the fact that everyone wants me to wait until I am 25, BUT my fiance wants to marry right away, within a year. I'm stuck in between doing what my family wishes verses my fiancée request to marry now. He was sad that I suggested we wait, yet I'm sad because of the constant battle that we are too young now. How do I tell my family my plan? I'm so afraid of me losing their respect and relationship with them, but I'm madly in love with this guy and want to be with him too.

this situation can get very sticky...I suggest you just follow your heart. your decision right now will not have an effect on your family 5-6 years down the road. its not about what they want..its about what you and your life. they can't make that decision for you so..just follow your what and do what the heart tells you2
