How many times did I hear that in my youth?
“You may think this is The One but these teenage romances never last – best not to get too involved”
“You’ll only get your heart broken if you take it too seriously”
My late teenage years were filled with such statements, advice from older people and scorn from a lot of my peers.
I was never in any doubt!
This was The One, This was who I would spend my life with, the man who would be the father of my children, and my support in old age!
So just under a month before my 19th birthday – we got married! Yes folks I was 18 when I got married, He was 20, and it was our first anniversary – we had been together exactly a year to the day!
