What if we grew up first - instead of together?

edited

My husband & I can't help but wonder what our life together might have been like if we'd done some things differently in the beginning. I was 15 when we met. He was 22 & I was just barely 18/smack out of highschool when we tied the knot just over 23 yrs ago. When I look at our wedding pic, I see two kids(!) - making a lifetime commitment!


Fast Forward - to here & now.

... we've made some sacrifices doing things "our way" . But - What if ...we grew up first - instead of growing up together? The only possible advantages I can see are that we might have always had more than enough money & mb we'd have made less mistakes (there are some things we'd go back & do differently if we could) - but in them (the mistakes!) - is where we did so much growing up together! We've always had enough of everything but time together - & given that no matter how long we live, we could not possibly spend enough time together (I'm dreading being away this wknd bc I know how much I'll miss him!), I'm not so sure sacrificing any of it would have been in our best interest - & if I had it to do it all over again .... I would :)
