Re: I got married too young. Long post but I really need help.

Sometimes, the grass is greener on the other side. So you want to have the youth that you missed out on? Life as a young, single woman--going to school, making new friends, having total freedom. I think that's reasonable, and totally understandable--but you may have built up in your mind an image of that life that is not realistic. It's not always easy being a young, single person--money is always tight or nonexistent, relationships are hard, living situations can be unstable.

There are many other women your age who would trade shoes with you in a heartbeat--a child, a hard-working husband, financial stability.

I'm not telling you to stop whining, because I totally get where you're coming from. But, life does not always go according to a perfect plan. You make do with the hand you're dealt, and you look forward, not backward.
