Yes. This is going to be a bit of a rant, but I must know your opinions. I am engaged to the most wonderful man I have ever met. We share identical dreams for lifestyle and our careers coincide with equal demands of travel etc etc. Simply, I couldn't imagine a better match. We've been through really serious problems together, so we know we are strong. I literally can't list how compatible we are, and how stupid it is for us to not marry.
YET, we can't tell anyone but our closest friends of the engagement... as much as we want too... because of the critiques we will get on our relationship that will do more harm then good.
Do you have any advice? Have you been through this? Should we tell our parents?
Thank you :)
Last time I heard, hearing our grandparents falling in love and marrying young is a beautiful thing. Why can't it be the same today..?

Honestly, I don't see why people feel the need to marry young. Like the previous comment said, our life expectancy has increased so there's no rush. And since the divorce rate is so high nowadays, I don't understand why waiting would be so bad. Make sure indefinitely, after all the lust and honeymoon phase has settled, then see how smoothly and well the relationship goes. For me personally, I want to get married ONCE and that's all. And seeing how that's a hard thing nowadays, I don't plan to rush into marriage. I would not consider marrying anyone unless we've at least been dating for 3 years. I feel like people romanticize marriage to the point of illusion. Marriage is f***ing hard work, it's not an accessory like so many celebs make it out to be. I feel like people my age, don't understand the weight of that commitment. Therefore I say, just wait, what's the rush?1
