I have been with my man for 15 years now and we have two beautiful kids together. We have done everything ‘the wrong way around’ as to the opinions of some people! We moved out together, we got a dog together, then the two kids. We haven’t married yet as we feel that we already are and when we can afford it and kids are old enough to walk down the aisle together well we will wait til the time is right! We don’t beleive in being engaged for a few years before marriage, we rather get engaged then not long after get married and go on a honeymoon! Its unbelievable some looks in people eyes and there reaction when they already assumed your married. I have been copping the ‘omg your not married?’ And ‘I assumed you were married’ , then there is one of my aunties that look down on me because I have children out of wedlock! Its amazing how people assume things and think there is a right way to do something. I know my day will come and I look forward to my whole family being part of the ceremony and celebrations. But in the meantime we are a happy loving family who are happy with the way things are! Marriage or not!!!
