    These are all great points to consider! Very well written article Shelly! You have a great perspective on marriage very early in the game, so I expect nothing but greatness for you and your hubby. Best wishes to you both! 🤗

    Very true! I especially agree that you have to know and love yourself first. If not, you’re not ready for marriage.

    I bet there is so much thought that goes into deciding about marriage. These are good tips to remember. Great picture.❣❣❣

    The point about loving yourself is something I seriously agree with! If you are not happy with your life or who you are marriage is not going to magically fix you. If anything it may make things worse. You should get married because you want to not because you think it will change your life/make you love yourself etc.

    Loved this 💕
    You speak such great points!
    I’m not yet married or engaged. Would have been this year if it wasn’t for covid. But I live with my boyfriend and act married. We have considered just going to the court house and having a big celebration later. What are your thoughts on this?

      Hmmm honestly I think you can definitely go to the courthouse and take your time planning the big celebration. If it was your intention to get married this year, the fact that you can’t throw a reception should not be the reason you don’t go ahead~ funny enough we did the reception with the white dress and all that first then actually got married on our honeymoon 😅 so really none of our family or friends came to my wedding but I don’t think they know this 😂


I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
