Vowed to God and myself that I would enter the Catholic Church. Nothing official, and I’m not yet able to begin RCIA, but this is the closest I got :joy:


#24

We met when both at age twenty, married two and a half years later, at age twenty-three. We both have had a variety of occupations since completion of high school graduation.


#25

Met DH at age 21, married him at age 26.


#26

A year or so after our marriage, my wife’s parents introduced me to some friends of theirs, a couple they’d known for a long time. They said “hello” very politely and we had a short, friendly chat, but my mother-in-law told me afterward that, in private, they had expressed their disapproval of “such a young girl marrying a man so much older than herself.” My wife is, in fact, a few months older than me. We were both 26 or 27 at the time . Appearances can be deceptive.

I was married at 25 and my wife was 22. We had met at college, and each of us had been seriously involved with another. Started off as a very sincere friendship and progressed for different reasons. We married between our fourth and fifth year of professional school, a few years after my wife converted to Catholicism and far away fro each other’s hone. That was 35 years ago.
