I would most definitely show it to her. In fact, I would encourage her to post here too, to start her own thread, just to talk about stuff. smile

Eric, there is nothing wrong with you. You're a normal young adult. But the key word is YOUNG.

I tell everyone I meet to NEVER marry before you're at least 25 (either of you), and NEVER marry until you have lived out on your own for at least a year, if not 2.

You both need to learn what that is like. You need to grow from the experience, learn how to deal with things.

Sure, you could try to learn it together. Many people do. But you are HERE, getting answers on how to do things better so you and Beth can have a better marriage - long-term!

If you are going to be together for the next 50 years, why can you not wait 2 more years? Is this all just because you don't want to be embarrassed or deal with the cost of postponing it?

Isn't that a sad sad reason to be choosing to get married?
