This was one of the questions that the VPR asked us after the talk we had at The Love School Live in Fortaleza. I understand where the question is coming from, because I married at 17…
First of all, we have to establish one thing: what are your goals after marriage? Is your husband a part of them, or not? What happens is that some young women marry because of their own personal objectives, so they withdraw from their husband emotionally. Though when you get married you should have this in mind:
Life will not only be for me, but for the two of us.
Whatever the age, you will never be able to think only about yourself. This is one of the sacrifices that a single person has to make when they marry. Although there are some who don’t want to do this and think that their husband has to accept to be second plan in their life. This is a recipe for frustration!
If you want to get married while young, get ready psychologically to leave behind the single life and the single girl dreams to become one with your future husband. That doesn’t mean you’re not going to be able to work or study, but it just means that these things will not be able to come in first place in your life.
Now I ask: Are you ready for this? If not, it’s better to wait a little bit more.
