Crazy in Love
Blogging our way through marriage and life.
I feel like its a smarter route to just go to the JP and then worry about the whole “show” aspect of the wedding part until later. That way theres room to buy a house and car and things like that before spending a bunch of money on a wedding. Congrats to you and your husband on the happy marriage! and thank you for the advice :)
To be completely honest, it was for financial reasons. Meaning that he wasn’t going to get any aide from the state for college and was going to have to take out major student loans. I’m not one for borrowing money especially knowing that we could possibly be in debt for years to come ON TOP OF trying to plan and pay for a wedding all on our own. I did some research and figured that because our collective income would drop if we were married then he might have a better chance to get financial aid and not have to take out as many student loans if any. We still want to have a wedding and all the jazz but now we wont have to worry about being in debt for school and can actually enjoy the wedding planning process.
It’s only been a month since we tired the knot and I can say its going pretty well. We are still adjusting to married life but it seems to be going okay for now. We are both working a lot so that we can get our finances in order and not live paycheck to paycheck sort of speak. School is going to be starting back up in a couple weeks so that should add new difficulties. Luckily though we picked our classes around each other so that we can go at the same time and still make it to work.
We are in the process of finding him a better paying job other than Subway. Don’t get me wrong, I love the free food but we need something that’ll pay more especially since we have to get a new car pretty soon.
His parents are taking the car Kyle has now back so that’ll leave us with one vehicle for alittle bit until we can find another car. We’ve been looking around places but it’s kind of hard to think about making a big purchase like that when you’ve just moved into a new apartment and gotten married only a month ago.
Overall though things are going good right now. We have to get some things in order but Itll be alright:)
Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.
He is like 6”4 now so I feel short compared to him and I love it! Lol
That was so amazingly nice of you to say. We appreciate your kind words and thoughts. Thanks for taking the time to read through our many struggles and problems. We appreciate it:)
