Backstory: I was telling my mom about how weird it is to be 19 and have 4 friends engaged. This was her thought on the matter…
don’t spend 2 much on wedding gifts, 3 of 4 will b divorced within a few yrs.

She is terribly correct in this matter. Listen to your mom!

She is right, but let me say, I had 6 friends from high school who married right after we graduated in 1978. At our 30 year reunion, all were still married. Pretty cool ; )

Very right. Of all the couples I know who got married before 23 (i.e. the end of college), only one is still together. In one case, I was still wearing my bridesmaids dress to cocktail parties (it was a standard “little black dress”) two years after the marriage had ended.

Hell, of all the 4 couples I know that got married before 26, 3 were divorced within the first year.

hahaha sadly… Agreed! Though, she is actually probably wrong… 4 of the 4 will be divorced within 3 years. Had a friend get married at 21 and 6 mos. later they were at the courthouse signing a different kind of paper.
