Being half a year away from my 20’s I realized it was probably very immature of me to believe certain things. One of the most important things I was too immature to believe was in this idea of being able to visualize forever.
We always think we can see forever. We date someone, we’ve dated them…
May Allah grant us the best in this world and the next. May He give us what we need in this world even if it isn’t what we want. May He help us understand, grant us patience, and make us of those who are grateful in all circumstances. Amin.
Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.
