… (Previous page – 10 Benefits To Getting Married Young) live without roommates for the first time with each other, just like you get to see what it’s like to get promotions, or a much nicer place, or a new car together.
8. You share all your craziest memories
Most of the time, the wildest, most out there experiences you have come when you’re really young, full of excitement and energy and raring to meet the world.
And you get to share those with each other.
You don’t have to wait for one of his friends to let slip the time he got so drunk that he passed out in a field – because you were probably there.
And being part of each other’s craziest (and most embarrassing) memories only brings you closer together.
9 . You wind up happier than other people
This one surprised me too. However, a National Marriage Project report from 2013 found that of people who are between 20 and 28 years of age, the most satisfied group are those who are married.
Plus, out of everyone who said they were “very happy” in marriage, the vast majority were those between 24 and 26. Who knew?
10. You have your whole lives ahead of you
Let’s look at it this way:
Worst case scenario, you grow into different people who aren’t compatible with each other anymore, realize it early, and wind up splitting up your marriage. And then you realize – hey, we’re still in our 20’s! We’ve got plenty of time!
On the other side, if things really do work out and continue to get better and better, you’ve got your whole lives ahead of you. You don’t have to regret the years you didn’t spend with each other – because you spent them all together. And you have a lifetime of happiness in front of you.
