...is a comment i've been hearing quite a lot lately. And its just crazy to me. Like, how is it possible that you've never been to a wedding? Its one thing when we were like teens (or younger)- even though by the time i was a teenager i had been to and/or in at least 3 or 4. But at this age..."marrying age". How is it even possible?
I was talking to my friend and he was telling me that he has only been to a wedding once, and that was when he was a little kid. He said the only people he knows that are married are his parents (and other older relatives). Something about that just doesn't sit right with me. In my world, people are tying the knot left right and center. I can't take 2 steps without hearing about somebody getting engaged. I read all the time about how people aren't marriage-minded anymore, and the alleged epidemic of unmarried black women who have no prospects...but i've always disregarded it because i've spent a small fortune on wedding gifts, bridesmaid dresses, and travel arrangements in the past 3 years, not to talk of all the weddings i didn't go to but knew of.
IDK man. Is it just me? Is there anyone else out there who hasn't (or knows people who haven't) been to a wedding before? Cuz its just super strange to me.
