  • My relationship is not a fairytale. Honestly, what is a fairytale relationship? Maybe we shouldn't be striving for that in the first place

  • I debated long and hard - should I get married in college? Would it kill my goals and dreams? I did, and what I learned through it shocked me!

    Should I Get Married While in College?

    May 4, 2016

      I remember a fear that I had when we first became engaged.  I wondered if what people projected on me was true:  would my dreams really come to a halt when I became married?  What I found was quite the opposite. My husband I met in college and were married as college students; I…
