Is Your 20-Something Ready to Marry? A Checklist

25 Jul

 

Is your 20-Something ready (as in mature enough) to marry?

EEK! Your little baby, a 20-Something, is tying the marriage knot.

Is Your 20-Something Ready to Marry?

Here is a checklist to determine if he/she is sufficiently prepared for matrimony.

  • Potty-trained
  • Pays own cell phone bill
  • Able to kill a spider by self
  • Wisdom teeth (and some wisdom) have appeared
  • No longer clings to bath toys, Barbie Dolls, or fave stuffed animals
  • Dresses self in a manner that does not embarrass the family or invoke ridicule from perfect strangers and imperfect loved ones
  • Adequately weaned
  • Can handle the crazy stress of a (yikes!) wedding
  • No longer spends inordinate time with imaginary friend, Mr. Bunny
  • Does not suffer acute hearing damage from years of helicopter parents’ hovering
  • Demonstrates social maturity: Can spot a “little person” on the street without pointing and giggling
  • Has that “thumb suck, chew, biting” habit licked
  • Fills car gas tank by self
  • Has kicked that video game addiction
  • Demonstrates reasonable sharing skills: For example, if there is only one red velvet cupcake left… do you scoff it down immediately in a mad conquest OR do you cut it in half and leave the smaller half for your soon-to-be husband/wife?
  • No longer insists boo-boos be kissed

Measure the Pleasure Not the Pain

Why not measure the pleasure instead of the pain?

We have fitness trackers to measure every step we slog and every nano-second of sweaty exercise…

the Fitbit Surge, the Jawbone Up3, the Garmin Vivosmart, and the Apple Watch.

Why not measure the pleasure, too?

Let’s count the time spent having FUN!

Whatever makes you happy
