Why is everyone getting married???

Hey,

This is geared towards the late 20s to mid 30s folks. Do you find that all of your friends are all of a sudden getting married? I feel like I blinked one day and all of a sudden I am old and it is time to become a neutered cat and play dad. I actually sort of panicked last night and spent hours listening to old school songs from my younger years for memories sakes.

Anyone else have friends who are getting married and find that life has passed too quickly and they are all of a sudden "old"? Life now is all about work, work, try to make more at work, weddings, baby showers, etc. anyone have a time machine? I want to go back to when I was carefree and life was simple (all about hanging out with friends and fun).

Help me I am old!!!!

I'm married and have 2 kids. Wouldn't change it for the world. My life is better than my single friends who are still partying it up like the college days. And typically only those with kids and a family will understand.

Uhmm, take another look. The whole OT forum was wiped and archived and much stricter rules are now in place. One can't even post in OT without getting a new rule prompt. ;)
Thinking seriously about the 4 S's...Sun, Sand, Surf and ... Booked for Sept in Mexico and booked Samana DR for Jan!

It was very strict before so I am not sure how it can get stricter. At the end of the day the moderators have to realize that OT is there to provide us with entertainment. It is no coincidence that most "entertainment" options be it on tv or in real life (clubs, etc) are a little trashy. The moment this site gets boring they might as well close the curtain.

yeah the new rules may kill OT. The whole point of this subforum is that it's off-topic and lighthearted - threads that belong nowhere else and have no specific purpose. over-moderating it seems rather pointless

No it wasn't. Frankly too many things were getting out of hand... politics, racial remarks, derogatory stereotyping, etc. That stuff is not going to be tolerated from now on...

Intersting "Why is everyone getting married??? "

And the discussion already began about how TO forum is or was or managed.
So the rules are already broken?

They tried other end and the result was ugly.

OP

Sometime people marry because everybody in his/her group is married. He/She is left out.
Or one day they find they met "the one" and get married. Sometimes it can be early or few times it can be very late.
"Internet is serious business" HeeHeeHee.
Losers/trolls waste time posting this "I don't feel like wasting time researching nonsense and trying to disprove the collective theories of a group of people that do not have, or deserve, even the tiniest shred of credibility. I'd rather amuse myself."
