Our Sixth year
December 18, 2011 6:41pm CST
Last Saturday, me and my wife celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary. It's funny and sad that time flies so fast. I married at a young age and now I'm thinking what could have happened if we didn't marry immediately. I regret, not marrying her, but the lost opportunities that I could have taken advantage of, if I remain single for at least another few years. But then again, I was blessed with a loving wife and very cute daughter so, all those "what-ifs" will remain just that, what-ifs. Also, I cannot turn back the hands of time so there's no point pondering over those things. But if you could, say, turn back the time, would you change something in your past? For me, I think, I will postponed our marriage foe at least another 8-10 years so that I can focus more on achieving priviledges that I could have take advantage of if I remain single.

Hello stuckonu, Belated happy marriage anniversary. Unlike you i regret for not getting married at early age.I got married at the age of 29 years and had kids at the age of 32 years.I know my kids will be smaller in age when i will be retired from the job.I always wish if i could have the kids at the age of 26~27 years.

Thank you so much. That's so thoughtful of you. You remind me of a friend of ours who is not really into our close circle of friends. She wasn't even invited in our celebration (as I also am minimizing the number of guest due to the space of our house). But a day after our anniversary, she gave us a gift saying that her phone alarmed and reminded her of our anniversary. That was really an unexpected gift from a very thoughtful person, like you.

I never regretted having married at a later age, my friend. I really enjoyed my single blessedness before finally getting married with my husband. Before him , i had some boyfriends, one after another. Belated Happy Anniversary to you and your wife. Just be happy and don't think of those what ifs. What is important is you have your wife and your child that completes you now.

I really don't want to think about those things because it makes me sad and sorry for myself. However, there are things that reminds me how much time have I lost for myself. Anyway, it's good to hear that you don't have any regrets of your own as far as your relationship is concern. It means that you've made pretty good decisions when you were younger. Thank you for your greetings!

No I have no regrets as to just how soon my husband & I were married after we met(6 months later) because we love each other just as much now as we did then. We just celebrated our 5th anniversary this passed Oct. My life is even more full now because I married him, not less. He makes me a better person. I have no concerns nor any regrets. I look forward to spending the resting of my life with him.

Congratulations! It means that you have made good decisions in your life because you have no regrets. That was so inspiring to hear from someone you love. i hope your husband reads that. Anyway, I'm sure you are always saying those things to him. Belated Happy anniversary to both of you!

I didn't want to have kids either so when I learned that my wife is pregnant, I was shocked instead of being happy. But when my wife gave birth, I've felt the joy of being a father. I never thought that I could love someone whom I don't really expect nor wanted in the first place. So, I am assuming that you feel the same way - that even though you are not expecting your child, you'll love them just the same. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
