And Mother Nature Will Be Like "Slooooow Doooown"

I'm 20-years-old, female, and in a long-term relationship. Facebook has decided it's time I get married:


It's bad enough that a bunch of my friends are getting married and the reaction from the general public is "Congratulations!" not "..oh." Am I really that old? Is this ACTUALLY happening?

Don't even get me started on how some of my friends are pregnant. PREGNANT. My uterus just got angry at me. It ALSO thought I was not yet supposed to be pregnant. Now it knows it can be. Now it's upset with me for not trying harder in this endeavor. hfdsahf.

This completely blows my mind. Please don't misinterpret this rant, it's not that I'm looking down on other people's life choices. If they're happy, fine. I just somehow missed the memo on how old I was and how it's legitimate for people my age to be having families.

I'm not ready for this. I tend to think of myself as relatively mature, yet apparently everyone else is light years ahead of me when it comes to life planning. I don't even know what I want to do with my life, let alone plan weddings and get cribs. Ahhh it makes my head want to blow up.

I really did think I wouldn't have to deal with the, "When are you getting married?" questions until I was at least thirty. Facebook has proved me wrong multiple times before ("No, I don't consider myself a stalker!") and this is just once more.

Please someone pause my life for a moment. I need a breather.


  1. Just... don't think with your uterus. You'll come out on top. (Or bottom as the case may be! NOT SO SUBTLE SEXUAL INNUENDO SHOULD BE MY USER NAME!)


    Also. Lulz. So many lulz. Lulz everywhere. DAMN am I glad I can't get preggers.

  3. You gotta also point out the fact that getting married at a young age isnt the smartest choice for everyone... as people we are always changing, a person who is right for you when your 17 might not be right for you when your 20... same thing with the person your with at 20 who is perfect might not be the one who will eventually father your children... also divorce rates for our age groups... pretty damn crazy... why finalize a relationship just because you can? the average life expectancy is around 79 years in the us... so getting married when your twenty-ish is saying you think that in your 20ish years of life you have found a person who you fully believe logically and emotionally you want to spend 60 more years with? its astronomical how crazy that sounds... let alone that you really cant remember in great detail the early years of your life... i dunno... relationship stuff kinda gets me into rants
