  • Her garbage is still over on CC.  Hopefully she gets banned.  Or maybe she's just DD'ing.

    Those are definitely the only requirements to sustaining a marriage.  So you're probably good to go!

    Points at katelyn ---->laughs uncontrollably, stops, coughs, tears, continues giggling. 

    Look around you on this post sweetheart.  There is an entire board of adult women, who were once 18 and many of whom who have raised their own children well past eighteen, and some who have grandchildren who are eighteen.  So we've been through that know-it-all, I'm a grown up, you can't tell me what to do anymore, things are so different now- not like when you were 18, but I'm mature age-- more than once.  Some of us are also on the second wedding board, and have heard over and over again how marriages that begin at 18 work out.  And all of us have lives outside of the knot, where we've seen it up close and personal.  Yes, a small percentage of couples who get married during adolescence do thrive.  Anyone who has experienced the heartache of a marriage that dies on the vine would not wish marriage failure upon you. 
    The point of this post wasn't to bash younger brides.  It was to celebrate the wisdom that comes with maturity, and the ability to choose what matters to you without the pressure of a peer group's influence.  It is your own defensiveness that leads you to take offense at the topic and posts. 
  • Katelyn, again, apologizing doesn't mean sh!t when you continue to act the same way. First of all you have no clue what anyone on these boards has gone through in their life so please don't act like you're "wiser" than anyone because of what you have seen. Frankly, the way you act on here makes you seem younger than 18. I know you don't like ageism, but really look at how you are expressing yourself?

    Listen to advice that these women are giving you. You don't know everything, and frankly neither do I or they, thats why these boards are here. But if EVERYONE is saying the same thing but you, I tend to think that maybe you're the wrong one here. You're going to have a difficult time in life if you throw hissy fits everytime someone disagrees with you. It might work for you now because people will take your age into consideration and hope you get over it, however if you don't it will backfire. Your FI might put up with it now, but what happens when you're 28 and throwing the same fits and acting the same way?

    Also-Yes "text speak" is not appropriate on a forum. We can only take what you say and how you present it by how its typed. When you're missing letters and not making sense it makes it difficult, and makes you look immature.

    Calling people names, yeah really? But we're the mean ones? That's almost laughable. Everyone here has approached you in a blunt, but polite manner and you respond with insults. If you can't handle the truth here maybe you need to go hang out on other wedding boards.

    Katelyn, being 18 and getting married are not criteria for "being mature", and using them as evidence of your alleged maturity is proving exactly the opposite. There are 12-year-olds out there that are mature, and there are plenty of people who never get married that are mature.

    Have you ever seen Bridezillas? Pretty much every single person on that show is over 18 and ends up married (I think there's only been one or 2 cases where the groom was smart enough to call off the wedding), and not one of them is mature.

    You know what's even harder than turning 18 or getting married? Having a baby. Have you actually seen how many people out there have babies and are not mature? Sorry, but doing basic things that almost anybody is capable of doing (Having a birthday, getting married, popping out a kid) are not things that make somebody mature. It's how they actually conduct themselves that shows maturity: how they talk to people, how they act, what decisions they make. Sitting around on an internet forum making ranting about how mean everybody is in text speak, telling people you feel sorry for their husbands, calling them "f*cking c*nts", and then screaming "YOU DON'T KNOW ME" when people call you on your incredibly hypocritical behavior is not, nor will it ever be, mature.

    And for the record, honey, you don't know me. You don't know any of these women. They all got stories that could break your heart.  You aren't any different. So get off your pedestal about how special you are because in your mind you believe that your 18 years on this planet must have been so much harder than anything anybody else has ever experienced in the history of anything. I'm not saying nothing bad has ever really happened to you, but I am saying that the fact that you can't possibly fathom that somebody else may have had it harder than you, or that you're entitled to some sort of special treatment because of what you've been through, is just screaming "I'm an immature brat that knows nothing about how the world works and has no concept of empathy".

    A  truly mature person wouldn't be going around thinking it's totally okay to insult the very same people she's mad at for not validating her. A truly mature understands that life isn't easy, bad things are going to happen to people that don't deserve it, but instead of whining about it, they need to grow as people, learn from their experiences and develop a strong sense of character from it. Based on how you talk to and treat everybody here, I'm going to hazard a guess that you've either learned nothing from your experiences, or you took away completely the wrong lesson.

    If you really were mature, you'd be thinking very long and hard about what you say to people before you went running your childish little mouth to them and acting like somehow your bad experiences gives you a free pass to insult them and act like you're somehow better than them. Get over yourself. You're getting quite the reputation around the boards for being a complete immature twatwaffle ... if everybody here is thinking the same exact thing about you, maybe there's some merit to it.  Maybe you're just not as mature as you think you are.

    But good luck with planning your wedding.

    You're right. You're such a bitch. I feel sorry for your Marine husband.


    No, I don't, because it's all his fault for joining the Marines instead of the Army, where he could have find a nice, mature wife instead of you.

  • Well my wedding isn't going to be valid anyway since I'm not having e-pics, I'm not throwing a fit over favors/cardboxes/name other unessential detail here, oh and I'm concerned about my guests having a good time instead of focusing on MY PPD. So FI still has a chance to find someone else :)
