Marriage + Friend's wedding weekend narrated Part A - Long post alert.

Tuesday 13 August 2013

Hey guys

Hope your summer is going well? Well my summer just started because the last semester just ended. Still working on twitter - @mizzitee.

My topic for today - Marriage and the youths.
Everyone seems to be getting married these days, it's like an anthem now when I hear people say 'I'm getting married. 
I attended a friend's wedding, met a few people.

Ghanaian Guy: I'd love to visit Ghana more often but love happened and I have to consider my wife as you know I'm married
Tee: *huge grin but dazed face inside* Oh yeahhh you have to consider her too.
Ps. my  love for Ghana is unconditional.

GG looks so young but he had his shiny band on his finger.

Second friend is getting married in 2 months and I looked at the one too like WHAT?!

I met someone else at my cousin's and he said he's getting married in a few months and I looked at him with a smile and said oh congratulations. Once he  left the room, I said to everyone else - everyone is getting married.

Who else is getting married or better put, who else is engaged? Dr Sid and Simi , Peter or Paul and Lola, Jennifer Aniston and Justin.

It's a good thing anyway.

Marriage has always been something regarded as 'for adults' and back in the day, men were at least 30 years old when they got married. There are still people like that of course but also guys men aged 25 and above are getting married.
Are people getting younger? Am I too traditional? What's the 'right' age for people to get married?
I spoke with the 'second guy's' fiancée who is an absolute darling, very very nice. I tried to indulge her in my ice cream and chin chin mixture, she'll try it I'm sure.

Me: Are you ready for your wedding, the day?
SGF: Not ready for the day but ready for marriage.
Me: Hmmm I see.

But seriously, it's making me dizzy. Marriage is good thing, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth!


I always thought it was a process;
Guy meets girl
They both grow together
Guy makes up his mind
Guy and girl too get financially, spiritually stable - this is the most important bit to mentors and 'elders'.
Guy makes the move
Girl agrees
Did done.

I used to think people had to be together for a long time to make the big move but people are together for two years now and they are married the following year.

You can tell how traditional this girl is.

Is it just me or people are getting married really early these days?

The topic above was triggered by a wedding I attended two Saturdays ago and it was splendito. First wedding in a couple of years that I could physically attend.
It all started on Friday evening, I finished for the day and it was time to hit the road, well more like train tracks.
We (le sisto and moi) hopped on the train, it was so full. One woman and her son were both watching different series or something on their individual apple devices which I thought was cute. Ps. is anyone a Scandal follower?

I do not know what Scandal has got to do with the topic - weddings. Let me act like I know nothing.

Anyways they both kept unconsciously kicking me and being Miss Nice Girl, I kept smiling and saying 'oh it's fine, don't worry' blah di blah.
Ps. I really should give le sisto a nickname here, let's call her errr...thinking.......booting.....loading......uhmm let's call her le sisto, can't think of anything else.

An hour later, we hopped off and walked out of the station and gosh the city (I won't mention the city because I do NOT want to offend anyone) was so busy and when a city is 'full', what do you expect? litter. They sure keep the council busy, the town centre was just unbelievable.

Sorry!!! back to the topic now.

The couple were at their rehearsal so we went to join them there, we got there pretty much after *whoops!*

Why do people have rehearsals though? Isn't it supposed to be a natural moment/event? 
Question: will you be having a rehearsal?
We met the groom (le sisto's friend), yes I tagged along. He introduced us to the rest of the bunch and they were/are all absolutely amazing people, we all became so close, it was surreal.
And guess what? the bride's brother and I attend the same Uni. He said something like 'my face looks so familiar' and I gave him the seriously look? Anyways he remembered me and we moved on. 
Then it was time to journey to the hotel, man was it far away? 
We went back into town, stayed out for a bit and then finally TRAVELLED to the hotel. We hit the motorway and all I kept thinking was I hope we don't have to journey this far in the morning. No we didn't, thank God.
