Saturday 9

Crazy Sam over at Saturday 9 posts 9 questions every Saturday. "Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment."

1. If you have been or are married, tell us about your wedding.
I have been married once a long time ago, wow now that I think of it we would have been married almost 12yrs if we had stayed together......crazy!

It was a very small ceremony held at the JP courthouse in Carrizozo, NM. The only people there were my mom, dad, Missy, and my brother and sister, none of his family was there they had no idea we were getting married.

2. What age would you encourage your children to get married?
I am not really one of those people who feels like there is a specific age or age group to get married. I of course would like them to be at least 20yrs old, more specifically I would like them to at least have their life together enough to make such a big decision like that meaning schooling done, having a good job etc etc.

3. Who got married at the last wedding that you attended?
My cousin Christy was the one getting married and it was about 19 or 20yrs ago! lol

4. Do you enjoy weddings and receptions?
Yes I think they are fun!

5. Have you cried at a wedding?

6. Would you prefer a lavish event or a intimate ceremony?
Intimate ceremony all the way!

7. Have you ever been in some one’s wedding party? If yes, do tell.
I have only been to a handful of weddings in my entire life and never as part of the wedding party.

8. Does a wedding make you happy and sentimental or grouchy and skeptical?
Usually happy and sentimental, but then again it depends on my mood!

9. Why do you think our divorce rate is so high?
I think it has a lot to do with the fact that growing up no one ever tells you that marriage is hard and it takes work. People fight, it is normal the way you handle it and respond is the important part. I also feel like some people would rather just get a divorce and start over again than put in the work that is required to help make a marriage better.
