it sounds so wrong and i feel bad when i do it but i cant help it sometimes i jsut wonder. like where would i be? what would i be doing? would i be with my oldest daughters dad? woud i be with someone else? would i be alone? would i live in a different state? would i of went back to school? so on and so on. i feel bad when i think like this but sometimes it just comes up and i wonder. do you think about it and feel guilty or do you never think about things like that and just go with what you have?

Hi :) I used to wonder like that sometimes but I feel guilty after that as well. I'm like you. I'm the older daughter in the family and got married at young age. What ever happened is happened. We can't do anything but we can decide our own future with the other half that has come into your life. Let him be the part of your future :). Fighting! Good luck.

If I didn't marry my husband, I probably would have finished school. Probably still living with my parents, and probably wouldn't be fiding gray hairs in my head every now and then.

Don't think that you are alone in wondering about that. I myself have often thought about this question too. I guess we should feel guilty about even contemplating this, however, I believe that everyone at sometime or another has had those thoughts. The biggest factor is whether you are willing to throw away what you have for something you think you might 1. get 2. be happy about 3. be with someone who offers more than what you already have. ETC ETC I am more than happy with my situation but that does not stop me from wondering what could have been.........

Yes i'd have to say i do wonder sometimes what it would be like not to be with my other half, what i'd be doing where i'd be i don't find anything wrong with wondering that though.. Cause i am sure your other half wonders the same thing..

We are not married yet, but some day we hope to be. We are very happy together, and woudn't even want to imagine how life would be if we were not together. Why would we ever want to imagine how life would be different had we not found eachother?
