3 years ago, Tamara (moi) had plans. Marriage was definitely not one of them. But life had a different plan for me… and so I end up getting married at 22.
R & I have never been a traditional couple. After almost a year and a half of dating, R who was starting his new tech startup had to move back to the US. We were both living in Lebanon at that time. After a few months of trying the long distance relationship thing and 10 hour time difference, I thought we were heading towards a breakup. Thankfully, R had something else in mind.
On our trip to Thailand,which I thought was a farewell trip, he proposed. I cried for 15 minutes before finally saying YES! 3 months later we got married, on October 11th 2013, 1 day before R’s 30th and 19 days before my 23rd. A few months later, we were in our very first apartment together, half way around the world. Although we got married again a year later (read why here) , the first wedding for us is the real one. Sorry mom!
Anyway, so yeah I got married at 22, and it was and still is pretty awesome!
