I got engaged 7 days after my high school graduation; here are 7 things I learned from marrying young

Spoiler alert: It wasn't because I was pregnant.
  • Engaged seven days after high school graduation? You're probably thinking: "How could she be ready to get married? She was only in high school." "She must have been pregnant." "She'll be divorced before their five year anniversary." "She's absolutely insane."

  • Even though this my story, I know that getting married right out of high school IS crazy. But, as the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland says, "We're all mad here."

  • In January of my senior year in high school I was dating and having a lot of fun. Then I met a boy. A man, actually. He already graduated, and one thing led to another until we fell deeply in love with each other.
