Marriage is kind of a big deal.

Some people say that younger generations don’t take it as seriously, but I beg to differ.

Yes, people are getting married later and later in life on average, and co-habitating couples often see no need to tie the knot for years at a time, but I’d argue that that means that when people DO finally decide to get married, it means they’ve thought about it a lot, tested the waters thoroughly, and are really really ready to take it on with diligence.

That said, nobody is immune from mistakes, or from second-guessing, as these real anonymous confessions confirm.
