i got married this past weekend, mine and dh's parents think we should have waited 10 YEARS to get married.....and if we even brought it up they would get angry, no we dont live with our parents and no we're not in our teens. we are 20 and 21 been together 4 years and been friends even longer, we have a son together and they think thats why we "want" to get married....they know we were engaged before we had our son


so yeah thats my confession...i got married last weekend and i cant tell anyone because then we'd get a whole mess of crap thrown at us

Well.... Congratulations!  :)

If you don't live with them and they don't pay any of your bills, just tell them.  It'll cause some drama, but they'll get over it.  You're an adult.

If youre old enough and mature enough to get married, you should be able to tell your parents regardless of their opinions...keeping it a secret just supports their opinion.

well when your parents and entire family will "disown" you for doing something they dont like then you kinda dont want to tell them

Congrats on the marriage! You have a child together so if you are both good parents you are going to be in each others lives forever anyway. Just remember to put your husband and child first and you guys will be fine. The others can have their opinion but don't let it effect you three. Good Luck!!!

aw congrats! Don't be ashamed or worried. You guys are grown, you're in love and you're married. You can't keep the secret forever.

Just tell them. Or put a wedding announcement in the local paper! They all just have to deal with it and move on. You two are adults raising a child together. Marriage should be encouraged. Congrats!
