"It works for us" is a great message to end your piece on. Marriage and when to get married can be a hot topic with vastly different viewpoints but at the end of the day you have to decide what is best for you and your situation. Being able to talk about the economic implications is so important along with enjoying the celebration. Like you mentioned, "when isn't it hard". Relationships are work and worth the investment if you put forth the energy. Whatever stage of life we decide to get married in has its own unique factors.
I'm curious how your family and friends feel about you getting married in college and the financial implications. Have you received any good advice?
